New to the Perth breakfast and brunch scene is Layup, which has just opened recently along at Brisbane Street, Northbridge. The interior of Layup is airy, beautiful and minimalistic with plenty of natural lighting coming from the glass windows, making it a lovely place to dine.
After seeing several drool-worthy Instagram food photos, I decided to head to Layup for brunch with my parents. I had the guacamole and pica de gallo ($16) with charred sourdough, smoked corn and jalapeno custard, topped with extra slow cooked eggs ($4). The guacamole was smooth and creamy, complementing well with the crispy sourdough. It’s a dish bursting full of fresh flavours with a subtle hint of spice from the jalapeno custard. It is definitely one dish that shouts summer with its festival of bright colours on the plate.
Mum had the baked eggs ($18) with feta, chorizo, spinach and house baked sourdough which was recommended by our lovely waitperson. This dish is definitely comfort food for the soul. It’s hearty, creamy and flavoursome with ooey gooey eggs.
Dad had the pressed lamb shoulder, organic buckwheat, mint sauce, marinated cauliflower and goats curd ($24). Beautifully presented, the lamb shoulder was cooked perfectly to tender, complementing well with the buckwheat and marinated cauliflower. The mint sauce and goats curd adds a touch of creaminess along with fresh flavours to the lamb shoulder.
With the cronut hype dying down, we now welcome the “Bronut”, a combination of a brioche and donut. With textures similar to a brioche, it’s soft, flaky in texture and sweet in flavour.
From the food we had, it’s definitely a no doubt that Layup will be gaining it’s popularity among foodies. What I love about Layup is the variety of interesting dishes apart from your usual breakkie suspects. I already have my eye on a few dishes and am looking forward to be back at Layup again. Highly recommended if you want to get your brunch game on!
