Thanks to @bydanieleng, we got to check out the brand new Weekend Brunch at @bochinchesg on a Sunday.
You’ll be pleased to know they serve cocktails and wines but being a temporary teetotaller, I had a fresh juice instead - a lovely blend of pineapple, celery, orange, carrot and ginger ($9++).
While we perused the food menu, Head Chef @chef_fabi got us sorted with a quick snack of Chorizo Croquettes. It was one of the items delivered to me during Circuit Breaker and although it tasted nice back then, of course it was even better eaten piping hot.
Since @bochinchesg is an Argentinian restaurant well-known for their meats, my instinctive choice were the Brunch items featuring them. Once I learnt they make their own sausages in-house, it was a done deal that we had to get the “Huevo Rancheros” ($24++) and the “Gran Desayuno” ($42++).
The former featured lamb chorizo cut up into chunky pieces and laid on a very thin, crispy tortilla base spread with spiced yoghurt, and strewn with onions, piquillo peppers and fresh mint. Chef Fabi recommended it be eaten like a pizza, so it was bye-bye cutlery. We were very much taken with the punchy flavours of this, and I thought the lamb chorizo was well seasoned and not gamey at all.
As for the “Gran Desayuno” or “big breakfast”, it certainly lived up to its name. There were two eggs (cooked any way you prefer), Wagyu beef sausage, grilled portobello, bacon, tomatoes, polenta “hash browns” and sourdough. On the side, a refreshing Lime Sambal that added a welcome cut-through to the richness on the plate. This is a dish that’s sure to keep you full for the rest of the day.

For those who drive, you’ll be glad to know parking is a breeze as the CBD is much quieter during the weekend.
