Return to earth with that 70s breakfast: Bubble and Squeak ($15). There’s nothing recession-years about it with generous poached eggs, Parmesan, sautéed cabbage, bacon, potato and peas. Wash it down with a Pink Floyd ($5.50) with raspberry, pineapple and apple, which is very bright side of the moon.
The Char-grilled Chicken Burger ($15.50) is a mod-burger in a glossy bun with crumbed chicken so juicy it’s like bee-stung schnitzel and stacked with pesto, bacon, avocado and roasted tomatoes. A side of chat potatoes makes a nice alternative to twiggy shoestring fries. Every burger should be accompanied by a shake and their coffee-flavoured Mottle Shake ($6.50) is the ticket.
The Paddington clientele might be more ‘Harper Valley PTA’ but good on Tiger Mottle for pushing the boundaries. With Hendrix-style coffee, they’re sure to have some swingers.
