Weekend Brunch at Kilo Kitchen
We had brunch at Kilo Kitchen Duxton recently. Our coffee ($4.50 for long black) came first. The presentation was commendable. The taste was average.
We tried the BBQ Grilled Thick Bacon ($24) which came with scrambled eggs and potatoes. The portion was quite substantial. The thick bacon was really quite thick and it was like eating long strips of steak. The bacon was smokey and had nice flavours – rather delicious.
We also had the Catalan Breakfast ($26). If the thick bacon dish was not good looking, the Catalan Breakfast was downright dull looking. The dish consisted of two fat sausages on some insipid looking beans, two slices of bread with tomato spread and some allioli sauce. The bread was charred in parts but the tomato spread made it quite enjoyable. The sausages were firm and meaty. The meat inside was course chopped meat rather than finely minced meat or paste-like ground meat. The texture was good.
Trendy Hangout Spot
We thought the brunch food of Kilo Kitchen at Duxton, which came in hearty portions, was fine but not particularly exciting or memorable. However, the place has a relaxed atmosphere and a resort feel and overall the dining experience was a pleasant one. It is a nice venue in the city for a lazy weekend brunch and a great hang out spot for the trendy set in the evening.
