Best of Canberra – Eggs Benedict

Canfan 15 September 2014 11

For me, one of life’s true treats is going out for a leisurely breakfast/brunch. My meal of choice is often Eggs Benedict. Runny eggs, slightly creamy (but not too gloopy) hollandaise, smoky ham (or bacon) and cracked pepper. Mmmmmm.

One of the things I missed most about Canberra when I lived overseas was the culture of meeting friends for brunch on a weekend. Living in London, my first ‘Let’s go out for breakfast’ was met with a ‘greasy spoon’ serving up bacon and eggs with a side of chips and black pudding and a mug of Nescafe. I longed for our café culture and a good serve of Eggs Benedict washed down with a couple of flat whites.

So, for this week’s Best of Canberra, let’s hear it for Eggs Benedict – where is the best place to go?

MMM smoked salmon benny – consistently very good at Cherry Bean in Belco Mall, coffee varies from good to excellent depending on who’s making it. Like a lot of places they need to keep a closer eye on the milk thermometer.

For me, it is undeniably Sugacube, cnr of Moore and Rudd Streets, West Civic

Kingston Grind is currently on the top of my list. I order it with Maple Bacon. Yum!

Biginelli’s in Kambah is my favourite place for eggs benny – the hollandaise sauce is deliciously tangy.

Its a toss up between Trevs at Dickson and Tosolinis the latter has the best consistent hollandaise sauce flavor for 10 years. And I always have with crispy bacon!

I’ve had some most excellent eggs benny’s at Bean and Grain in Fyshwick markets in the past. Although they changed owners sometime early this year (or late last year) and the quality dropped as a result – although they were still “ok” but not “omg wow om nom nom”.

Current favourite place for my eggs benny fix that rests in my mind right now is Me and Mrs Jones.

Absolute worst is Phat Burger in Farrer.

Surprisingly, Me and Mrs Jones served me up a very good Eggs Benny last time I was there. I suspect you’ll get quite a few nominations for this round.

Oh, if you need an extra taste tester for this one I’ll happily donate my taste buds.

I like my Eggs Benedict served with smoked salmon. Have tried numerous places but yet to find the perfect hollandaise sauce they all seem to serve it straight from a container. So suggestions for the best I wait with baited breath.
