The “brunch” I hear, is very popular in the U.S. and becoming more popular in Australia. Many of my friends back in Melbourne tend to do the “brunch” on Sundays where most people sleep in, skip breakfast then have a long and lazy brunch.
However I never really caught on to the idea. Given that most people have only 3 main meals a day, it just seemed that combining breakfast and lunch into 1 meal resulted in depriving me of 1 main meal!
Last Sunday however, after a big sleep in, we decided to stroll over to our local NY Café (yes, that’s its actual name) and have breakfast even though it was really lunch!
Hubs had the English breakfast, while I had the Huevos Rancheros. The English Breakfast was ok. Nothing out of the ordinary.
The Huevos Rancheros was topped with a very synthetic looking and tasting yellow cheese (cheddar??)! Even in the photo it looks plastic!
Anyway, the other thing missing was toast or just any kind of bread. For some reason, meals are not accompanied by bread here, while in France, I’d be jumping up and down if the waiter didn’t bring us any bread!
