WHAT WE ATE...
I opted for the ‘Poppyseed and Ricotta Hot Cakes – double cream, pistachio crumb, berry compote with an orange, mint, and rosewater syrup ($17.50)’. This dish was just too pretty to eat but of course I did… The hotcake was fluffy and the combination of toppings with the exotic syrup tasted divine.
My dining companion chose the ‘Menemen – scrambled eggs with roasted capsicum, tomato, onion, garlic, chilli, roast chat potatoes and Turkish bread ($16.50)’. I had a taste of this dish and it was wonderful. I am definitely ordering this next time… The dish was packed with flavour and those crispy potatoes… Wow!
WHAT WE DRANK…
My latte ($4.00) made with Veneziano Coffee was fabulous.
I was driving through Ringwood East when I noticed a busy, new café! Later that week, we checked it out. We were warmly greeted by staff who ensured that we had a delightful dining experience. The interior had a chic, industrial feel which was softened by flowers and greenery. The menu was exciting with lots of dishes that you would not ordinarily see on your local café’s menu. The Younger Brother is a brilliant addition to the area.
