Another weekend, another brunch. This time we trekked all the way to Balwyn in search for more brunch goodness. We were taken by surprised when it only took us less than 10 minutes to get a table at one of the window seats. What's more, the high chair was lower than I expected, which was great for short, tiny me.

I ordered the prawn and corn fritters with avocado puree, charred corn salsa and chilli jam which instantly transported me back to Malaysia, was we have a similar version of prawn fritters. Whatever herbs and spices were used in the fritters, they were delicious! It was crispy on the outside, yet moist on the inside. The smooth avocado puree helped to balance the flavours. I also ordered a crispy egg on the side.

Steve ordered the cassoulet with braised beans, smoked ham hock, lamb shoulder, toulouse sausage, confit duck leg, persilade and fried egg. Now, I'm sure the cassoulet is decent, but put it in front of a wog and an Asian who are used to strong flavours, the cassoulet just pales in comparison to the festival of colours and flavours on the prawn and corn fritters.

By the time we finished our meal, there was already a long line waiting outside. So, if you're not the type who likes to wait in the cold for a seat (let's face it, no one likes waiting!), consider visiting Mr. Hendriks earlier in the morning to beat the brunch crowd.
