[Melbourne, Australia] Fitzroy is one of the inner city suburbs of Melbourne you should visit if the arts, galleries, live performances, pubs, indie shops and cafes call out to your name.
God must have planned me to eat at Birdman Eating because I was looking on the map for this shop ranked #50 out of 2416 restaurants in TripAdvisor, only to realize the car was parked right in front.
Birdman Eating (nevermind the shop name sounds offensive in Hokkien) is quite a breakfast and brunch place, somewhat like a hole in the wall café with an ambience which makes you feel like you are a time traveler back to the 90s.
You won’t miss the blackboard which jots down some of their specialties, such as Birdman’s Baked Eggs (AUD$14) with choices such as pork, lemongrass & ginger, and chilli beef & beans. Their coffee is excellent stuff too.
The chicken, mushroom & tarragon Baked Eggs comes served in a hot iron plate, with a toast and slab of butter. This is one of those things I would say is “Super crazy good” .
It IS super crazy good – warm creamy sauce flowing on soft rice with chunks of chicken. Definitely a sight when you poke into the egg yolk and it overflows all over, coating the mushrooms and rice. Yummy decadence.
The honey roasted root vegies & fetta did not impress my friend though – too healthy tasting perhaps. I enjoyed it too! If sweet carrots and soft potatoes in egg are your kind of stuff too – go for it.
