If you're anything like me, you've been all over Melbourne in a quest to find the city's best Hollandaise sauce. It's the type of thing you're unlikely to make for yourself at home, due to difficulties in the cooking and also because that would mean admitting to yourself, exactly how much butter you were about to slather all over breakfast.

When you're out though, it's a different thing and cooked eggs, laying in a nest of spinach over warm bread, then dressed with a thick and creamy sauce, can be just the thing.

Madame Sousou's version is excellent in that it has a balanced lemony tang. Other venues have been disappointing in that they use too much vinegar, either in the sauce or as a residue from the poached eggs.

What a curiously international dish, as well. It has a sauce inspired by those from made in Holland, English muffins, is titled 'Florentine' which refers to the famous Italian city and yet is was prepared for me from the French menu at Madame Sousou's.
