I was visiting Perth in October 2013 with a group of my primary school friends. It was a great time spent together as we did not have to keep rushing for the trains and buses because we travelled by rented car.
Our first stop upon reaching the city was The Tuck Shop. It was recommended by my friend’s cousin to have a breakfast. The restaurant is located at North Bridge.
We were well greeted by the waitress once entered the restaurant and we sat at one of the tables nearby their kitchen counter. The waitress got our drink orders first as we were not able to decide what to eat for our first breakfast in Perth.
After a while going through the menu ups and downs many times, I still unable to decide what to eat. While one of my friend has decided what he wanted and the rest wanted to share with their partners, I thought it would be better to get the waitress to recommend for me because the portion looks big for me.
Egg Scrambled with Organic Sourdough Toast
The waitress said the portion good enough for me. Two pieces of toast with generous amount of scrambled egg, put a little bit of pepper on top of the egg and it went well with the toast. I liked the scrambled egg a lot.
While my friends ordered, Chorizo with paprika potatoes, peppers, spinach onion and crispy pork belly with fried egg.
They said, it was very nice but I did not taste it. Same goes to Bruschetta with grilled bacon, goats curb, tomato, avocado and basil salad. I think it was great too! They talked about Australians like to have the poached eggs for breakfast and I saw in few breakfast selections, we could choose our favourite type of egg.
Another breakfast which has poached egg was Smoked cod, potato and leek baked with poached egg with cheddar toastie. I tried a little on this one and it gave me a very rich cheese taste. Everything comes with great portion and generous ingredients. It is very worthy to give a try here.
Toast with marmalade,
Besides that, they do offer pies and muffins.
As for the ambience of the restaurant was great. It is good for a small group of people going there for breakfast together. The interior decoration of the shop is creative.
