Fenix is Gary Mehigan’s (of Masterchef fame) restaurant on the banks of the Yarra in Richmond.
Don’t be deceived when you drive past and see the white tablecloths and fancy setting, this is the function area. Downstairs is the restaurant and this is where J and I headed for a Saturday breakfast.
We were seated at a window table.
The restaurant is light and bright and had a casual feel about it that morning.
I started with an orange juice.
J had a coffee and the house made granola with fresh milk and rhubarb.
The milk and rhubarb come separately.
He commented many times that it was a very good granola and it had good nuts in it. It was a winner.
I had the Moroccan baked eggs with smoked bacon, capsicum and coriander.
This dish packed so much flavour, I was quite surprised. It was really good and my only small niggle would be that as I am a carboholic I would have liked another half slice of bread, but that is a personal thing. Oh, and this dish was only $12! Very good value.
We had a really good breakfast at Fenix and would recommend it.
