In my seemingly endless search for the world's (or, at the very least, Brisbane's) best hash browns, I found myself deep in the 'burbs. Yeronga to be exact, which might not seem like 'deep 'burbs' to some, but for an inner-city resident this is most definitely suburbia. Thankfully, the trip was not a waste. Family-run cafe, Anesis, most definitely delivered on the hash brown front. And on all of the breakfast fronts.
I'm not sure what the exact definition of a hash brown is, but if I was being picky, I would probably call theirs more of a mashed potato ball, but that really doesn't have the same ring to it. Whatever you want to call it, it was delicious. A ball of mashed potato, mixed with herbs and some cheese and encased in a crusty coating. Yum.
Enough about the hash browns though - there are heaps of other tasty things on the menu, including classics such as eggs benedict, chocolate(!) French toast, omlettes and house-made beans with chorizo, to name a few.
Service was easy and quick; so quick in fact that our orange juice beat me back to the table. The staff were all really friendly, and seemed genuinely happy to be there (no mean feat given it was a Sunday). All in all, Anesis is definitely worth the trip into the suburbs.
