Birdman Eating, Fitzroy, Melbourne

Gertrude Street is becoming quite trendy with cafes and shops popping up. I don’t know Melbourne very well but I do remember coming to Gertrude Street many years ago and it has definitely changed!

I was looking for somewhere to eat before shopping whilst ‘The Mother’ and Brother in law was at the cricket and thought I would give this place ago. The menu is quite vast, different types of egg dishes, baked eggs, porridge, toast, crumpets and many more.

Started with freshly orange juice….

I couldn’t decide, everything sounded wonderful, house made crumpets with leatherwood sounded tempting, so did the baked eggs but it was the smoked pulled pork, shredded lettuce and mint open sandwich with roast pineapple sorbet ($16.50) that won my heart.

OH MY – what a LARGE serving! TWO thick toast, one with lettuce and onions, the other a generous serving of pulled pork and roasted pineapple sorbet. The pulled pork was tender and a although a bit of the sweet side was WONDERFUL and the sorbet, sweet and melted quite quickly. It was quite a rich dish but definitely hit the spot. It was exactly what I wanted.

I was hoping to return the next day with ‘The Mother’ and BiL, however, we got up too late and didn’t have time as we had to go back to Sydney. Service quick and friendly, the place was buzzing but didn’t have any trouble getting a table. Got a take away coffee, didn’t think I wanted one but I needed something to start the shopping journey!

Till next time Birdman… there will be a next time!

    That’s a really generous serving! The pineapple sorbet on top sounds weird but now that I think about it, it must be delicious!

    I thought I would give the pork and sorbet a go as it sounded interesting.
    Personally I thought it was horrible, maybe it was to do with the texture or something.
