Breakfast at Nic & Kolo
Nic and Kolo was a newly opened establishment in the Applecross area, replacing the former restaurant known as JACS. I couldn’t attend their launch because I had a prior appointment so I arranged a quick get together with Martin and Raymond for breakfast at Nic & Kolo.
We were greeted by the owner Ben Kon-Yu when we arrived and managed to secure a good outdoor seating despite the busy Sunday morning crowd. Raymond and his wife Cat brought cute little Gracie (Japanese Spitz puppy) to meet all of us. Gracie was really adorable and I really wanted to take her home hahaha.
The breakfast menu was quite compact so we were able to decide on our breakfast quite quickly. Most of the dishes that we ordered for breakfast gave us a satisfying thick slab of bacon as you can see from the photos below.
I decided to go with a ‘healthier’ breakfast dish that I called field of mushrooms which came with poached egg, sourdough toast, horseradish creme and heaps of delicious mushrooms. The toast was perfect, warm and fluffy too!
Martin and Cat ordered the buttermilk pancakes which looks very pretty especially with the edible flowers and caramel creme. I think every food dish that comes with edible flowers on top (especially in purple colour) will look very appetising. The thick slab of bacon made everyone go ooh and aah on the day.
Renay and Ray ordered the Bacon and Eggs in a brioche bun and Andrew ordered the Bacon and Eggs with poached eggs and watercress. Andrew's heart sank right away when he saw it. While I don’t want to create comparisons based on the presentation of food alone, his food looked very sad compared to the rest as you can see from the photo above. It wasn’t too filling but fortunately Renay was very generous to share half of her burger (yeay).
We had a good experience at Nic & Kolo and all of us agreed that it was a great hang out place especially for people who live around the area. The location was in close proximity to the Good Grocer where all of us went to after we finished our breakfast.
