I remember seeing an article about Left Field on Broadsheet months ago. I was curious, as the tag line promised a delectably seductive new offering on Koornang Road; a road I venture on almost weekly for work. At the time, I had difficulty envisioning anything contemporary at this location, even wondering at times if perhaps the writer of the article had been mistaken about its site. But alas they were not as suddenly work began and I become fixated watching that iconic yet lifeless pink heritage building being transformed into something starkly striking. Seemingly I'd been eagerly anticipating its opening but in turn, so had the rest of Melbourne. For weeks I watched as hoards of people stood in lines that reached out the doors and onto the road itself. And to this day those lines are ridiculous still. I truthfully can not recall a singular day where I am yet to witnessed this business have a "slow" day.

A few weeks ago a friend and I finally made our way down for brunch. We decided to brave the chill and occupy an outside booth as there was no wait. But if we found ourselves having to pause, well it would have been well worth it. The interior, much like the building itself is minimal and classically white with ample wooden features. There's soft touches of greenery to be found dotted throughout, mostly the kind of fauna exclusive to this country, like Bottlebrush centrepieces and hints of Eucalyptus on countertops. Overall I found the coffee to be exceptional, and this is coming from someone who doesn't do coffee on a whim. The food, as you can see pictured above is creative, artistic and palatable. This time I decided against eggs and went for the Portobello Mushrooms, which were divine. I found myself unsure where to begin however, it's resplendency too magnificent to disturb and disrupt with my fork. The menu has various inventive offerings, from savoury to sweet. Though I have to admit, I've been eager to return just so I can devour their Cookies and Cream Sliders. Those words in itself sound blissfully indulgent and hold such promise of ethereal delight.

  23. Ehrmahgerd! These just look sooooooo goood! That portobello mushroom dish looks so freakin yummy I wish I can reach out and eat it:D

    And Sonia, I think you'll love W, although fair warning... Rowena warned me about the lead guy, and she was right. Not my fave actor. But the story really is quite amazing:) And let me know how you're liking Mr.Back. I've never heard of that one before.

  29. I love how you just watched them get busy with long lines. I love businesses like those because they make me wonder if they're really worth it or they're just way too overhyped. I'm glad you were pleased with your meal because long lines, along with some high standards due to hype plus bad food is never fun to deal with. Trust me, I've had my share.

    Gosh, you making me wish I lived there! I mean, you braved "the chill" sounds a bit more exciting than the heat over here! It's getting cooler actually but does that mean it's going to get warmer there?!??!?!

  30. Your portobello mushroom dish looks beautifully presented. Portobellos are one of my favorites when I opt out of eating meat. They're so tasty and satisfying when done right.

    I've wondered what happened to you lately but good to hear that you're still keeping up with those K-dramas. You sounds like you've been quite busy with them in fact. I can't even remember what i recommended to you before now but here are some more which are favorites - Full House (the one from 2004, it's a classic), Coffee Prince, Prosecutor Princess, The Woman Who Still Wants to Marry, Flower Boy Next Door, A Gentleman's Dignity. Enjoy!

  56. Girl, you can even talk about restaurants in such a beautiful, poetic way! I wish I could write as well as you do, your style is amazing!! <3 Of course, the restaurant itself seems fab and very fancy. :) Totally drooling over those dishes, they're like little pieces of art in themselves - almost too good to eat!! Personally, I've been on a vegan diet for the past three weeks so I can only drool over such scrumptious meals, haha. ;) I shall feast with my eyes! You should deffo do more posts like this, hun, they're so much fun! I hope you're well and that you're having a fab week so far. <3
