The whole object of travel is not to set foot on foreign land; it is at last to set foot on one’s own country as a foreign land.” – G.K. Chesterton

Brunching @ Oolaa Petite, Hong Kong

I am such a smartphone noob! I've had this smartphone for almost 9 months (my first one, which I got from hubby when he upgraded), yet I only just figured out how to upload the photos from the phone to the computer! I had this meal with my gorgeous friend Steph almost a month ago, and I can finally write about it. Steph came over to Hong Kong for a day trip, and I finally could meet up with her after having had to cancel a few times on her either due to poor health or work. Thankfully Steph is such a sweet soul who understands the nature of the job of a substitute teacher - getting called up at the last moment to sub a sick teacher - and getting sick is unavoidable when I come in contact with so many kids. Steph had previously visited Oolaa Petite on Star Street and told me we ought to brunch there the next time we met. It's a nice little cafe-style eatery, with a comfortable and cozy atmosphere. The brunch menu had a nice variety of food from the simple like fresh fruit bowl with greek yoghurt, muesli and pancakes, to the more substantial items like eggs benedict, the Big Breakfast and Breakfast Pizza. Unfortunately I'd forgotten to bring along my camera so I had to resort to using the phone camera. The photos are not the best quality, but they're better than nothing!

Steph's Breakfast Burrito (HK$95) was filled with portobello mushroom, bacon, sausage, caramelized onion, roasted tomato, scrambled egg and mixed cheeses, and served with sour cream and tomato chutney. It was substantial, perfect for someone who skipped breakfast:

Having eaten breakfast already, I opted for something lighter and ordered the Eggs Benedict with Smoked Salmon and Avocado (HK$100). The smoked salmon option actually comes with spinach, but the kitchen honoured my request to substitute with avocado, which went perfectly with the smoked salmon:

I really enjoyed my eggs benedict, which was tasty and hit the spot for my craving for eggs benedict. The eatery soon filled up with the business crowd during the peak lunch hour, and we spied other diners tucking into their delicious-looking lunches. After a quick look at the lunch menu, Steph and I decided that we'll come back for lunch next time!
