Modern food in a contemporary venue
Nestled at the base of the hotel is Monster Kitchen and Bar, which spreads across four separate spaces. The lounge area is made up of a series of spaces formed within the concrete structural lintels. The mosaic room houses giant original artworks. While the salon and dining rooms tell the story of immigration to Australia.


I had already visited Monster Kitchen and Bar before for pre-dinner cocktails, which might I say, were delicious, but I recently went there for brunch with some lovely ladies. When I go out for brunch, I hate not knowing what to pick when I look at the menu and having to just pick the first thing that comes to mind when the staff ask for my order. Despite this, I always think that having this problem is a good sign. It's a good sign because it shows that there is more than just smashed avo on toast that is grabbing my attention and making me wonder how the dish will taste.

This is the exact problem that I had when I visited. The menu had a number of brunch options available, yet at the same time, it wasn't too extensive that it was overwhelming. So as I normally do when I faced with indecision, I simply picked the first thing that came to mind when the staff asked for my order - The Ciabatta and Monster-made bacon roll.

The roll
My breakfast

This little compact wonder comes with Monster-made hash browns, a fried egg, pickles, onions and harissa. It tasted just as delicious as it sounded with a touch of spice, and it was also very filling. These two factors - being delicious and also being filling are in my option the two most important ingredients in a recipe for making the perfect brunch dish!
