Brunching at Kitchen by Mike

The weekends seem few and far between so I don’t really get much done besides bumming around. It always ends up the same story – morning sleep ins where I get little to nothing done, and before I know it, it’s the start of another work week.

Last weekend I managed to squeeze in some terrarium slash random gardening. My last basil plant turned into a flowering dried plant before it died, and as a consequence spread its seeds into surrounding pots. Little basil plants have since shot up, so I decided it was time to re-pot them. I also made another terrarium with some succulents from the garden.

H and I also managed a trip to Kitchen by Mike. Neither of us are morning people, so it is always a late lunch. This time we got the lamb with cous cous, as well as a quarter chicken with an avocado and black bean salad. I love the idea of a half avocado drenched in soy/black bean. It was absolutely moreish and I quickly craved the other half of the avocado. The lamb was so tender and bursting with flavour too. And that harissa sauce. Oh em gee.

All I can say is that if you haven’t yet been to Kitchen by Mike, you really need to arrange a time to go! They pride themselves on making tasty, wholesome, responsible food from seasonal ingredients. I love how the menu is forever changing. I adore the salads they have.

And you can’t go past coffee + cake. They have a great assortment of baked goodies, and of course I want to try them all! In this case I settle for a slice of hazelnut cake with some pretty mean chocolate icing. Love.

In conclusion. I’m still listening to that Mika song from the last post.

  1. Kitchen by Mike is on my hitlist but I haven’t managed to go so far because Rosebery sadly isn’t easy for me to get to. :( I totally encourage you to go try out Gowings, and let me know what you think of it and the deep-fried Gaytime!

    1. Ah yes. I hear you. I think it is about a 15 min walk from Green Square, but I think it might be a bit exxy getting off at that station? Anyway, def keep KbM on your hit list!

      Mmmmm I need to try Gowings + the Norfolk again fosho!!
