The hostess diligently explained the menu to us. Forage had numerous choices on the breakfast menu. My dining partner selected the big breakfast, eggs scrambled. I selected the Mexican. The hostess politely warned me ‘it’s hot’.
First arrived my cup of perfectly crafted Grinders organic coffee, Forage set a bench mark of excellence in its coffee, very smooth no acidic tones a rich full taste with a nutty slightly cocoa aftertaste.
Our breakfast plates arrived, both of generous portions. The Mexican had pulled pork, salsa, guacamole, eggs and tortillas. My hostess was right, my dish came with high visibility of chillies in the salsa, guacamole and eggs made me a little cautious as to how hot this Mexican plate would be.
My taste buds went into an instant flurry of excitement, it was hot, spicy, smooth and with hint of sweetness from the pork it was the most perfect match of flavours on a breakfast plate.
For those who love a little spice, the mixture of chili’s in the dish offered different graduations and onsets of heat.
Forage is an excellent Inner West café. The Mexican is worth a try for the brave, definitely not for the faint hearted.
