HOLLA COFFEE ROASTERS, MELBOURNE CBD: Holla Coffee Roasters is a trendy, breakfast spot in the heart of the Viet hub of Richmond. To reflect this audience, it caters by providing selections of Asian fusion-type options for breakfast, such as the miso salmon soba noodles! The dishes were presented in a colourful and appetising manner, whilst the combination of ingredients were some of the most unique I’ve seen amongst the Melbourne cafes these days.

Croffle S’mores: Croissant waffles w/ raspberry pistachio parfait, strawberry curd, fresh berries, pistachio crumb & rose syrup – $19.5

The good fat: The uniqueness of the menu was very refreshing, with the crab crumpets being my particular standout. The moist, and slightly dense crumpets were a delicious base for the perfectly poached eggs and crispy soft shell crab on top. A crisp, lightly burnt flavour came from the bacon crumbs and the avocado made this the perfect brekky.

CROFFLE S’MORES! What an amazing invention! To be honest I’m very happy with how they’ve come up with such a cool idea for a dessert brunch dish, which is simply a standard for all Melbourne brunch spots. In a time where panna cottas and hotcakes are rife, croissant + waffle blend is simply one of its kind.

The bad fat: The miso salmon was quite interesting; it seemed like it was halfway between smoked and sashimi but not sure which way so a little strange to eat. The raspberry pistachio parfait within croissant s’mores didn’t have a strong pistachio flavour, and resembled more like strawberry yoghurt and I think considering how unique this dish was, it would have been easy to think of a better complement to be sandwiched within the waffles. The strawberry curd and rose syrup was also too sweet and sour that it overpowered the inherent buttery flakiness that I wanted to get from the croissant.

SHOULD YOU GET FAT HERE?

YES – Such a trendy, unique spot which epitomises Asian fusion Melbourne brunch with a couple of flavours to refine to make it perfect!

FAT-O-METER: 4.5/5
