Cafes are popping out in Melbourne faster than my heart rate after a strong cardio session. I seriously cannot keep up!!! This is a short and sweet post on Two Little Pigs which I found thanks to the trusty Broadsheet guide. So glad to see good local gems in the Northern suburbs. My overall experience here was enjoyable - friendly and efficient staff, great coffee, outdoor seating at the back and A WONDERFUL MENU! I'm going to pay another visit just to try their famous doughcakes with bacon ice cream. Yep, you heard correctly. BACON ICE CREAM!!! What a genius creation.
Pea & Ham (breakfast) - Crisp roasted pork belly, poached free range eggs, green pea velouté served with sourdough toast - $16.90
I am a sucker for any pig bi-product - bacon, pork belly, pork ribs........ As bad as it sounds I can't help being a meat lover :( Pair the pig product with poached eggs and you've got yourself a breakfast winner. I really enjoyed the pea velouté which I would have preferred over a pea puree.
Charcuterie Boards - small $19.50, large $29.50
I had my first Charcuterie board when celebrating my 20th birthday at Cumulus Inc. It was a great experience because you get a fine selection of sliced meats, each with their own texture and unique taste. I am a lover of meats so we opted for the Charcuterie board to accompany the other pork belly dish. THIS IS A SMALL SIZED BOARD! Great to share between 2-3 people. I can't imagine how big the large would be... The relishes are homemade which is great to see in a local cafe. There were too many olives though! I can't eat THAT many. Overall I would recommend you order this if you are to pay a visit, you won't be disappointed.
Charcuterie is the branch of cooking devoted to prepared meat products, such as bacon, ham, sausage, terrines, galantines, pâtés, and confit, primarily from pork.
