GM Eggs Benedict
(12 hour braised beef cheek cooked in green apple and spices, raw spinach, two poached eggs and harissa hollandaise on a milk bun)
The beef cheek was incredibly tender, the eggs perfectly poached, and the hollandaise really good.
King Smoked Salmon
(salmon, harissa polenta, goats yogurt, broccolini, roasted heirloom tomatoes and two poached eggs)
A tasty dish however a bit more salmon would have been nice.
Acai Berry Smoothie (banana, chia seed, cinnamon, almond milk, cocnut water, protein powder)
Mango and Passionfruit Smoothie (pineapple, frozen yogurt, protern powder, almond milk)
Super filling and were almost a meal themselves. And how awesome are their glasses?
I loved the eclectic feel that this place had with its quirky mixture of pop art and rustic design. Located in a warehouse that was previously a glazing company, Glass Merchants offers a menu of well known classics with a fresh twist on them. We also found out that this place is often rented out at night for various pop up restaurants which is such a great idea considering how impressive this space is. There is also ample parking right next to the building which makes visiting really easy. A place worth checking out if you are in the area.
