breakfast burrito hunt: it begins!

Over the weekend, I was inducted into a breakfast burrito club. I don’t get to have burritos all that often, and never for breakfast, so I hauled my arse out of bed and ventured to that odd part of Melbourne south of the river.

My host was @palegoldenrod, an all-round awesome girl – she travels, she slacklines, she builds catapult prototypes out of confectionery (no, really. I’m hoping to report on that in the future).

The venue was Yellow Bird on Chapel Street, thankfully a good distance away from Borders and the MAC pro store. There were many in attendance and we cheerfully huddled on the benches that bit our arses (they’re a bit…spiky). Good thing the rest of the crew was very friendly, hee hee.

Everyone who ordered food went the burrito though many of us had variations – no bacon, no egg and such. I went for the default breakfast burrito – everything please!

It’s not too shabby – comes with a generous dollop of sour cream, the bacon is those nice thick slices (the dearer ones at the supermarket…mmm) but perhaps would have liked my egg a bit more scrambled. @palegoldenrod said it wasn’t their best one.

For some odd reason they’d run out of freshly squeezed orange juice (at 10.30am? really?) so I had not one but two delicious chai lattes. Service is a little haphazard, but it’s a decent brunch spot. Shame I couldn’t order a Little Creatures limited edition brown ale due to how early it was…even though, as you know, I’ve had beer with breakfast before.

Still, I heard from the fellow breakfast burrito-lovers present that there other places out there doing them.

Let the hunt begin!

    A beer with your burritor at breakfast really does sound quite nice. Can I recommend Las Chicas in Balaclava? It’s a whopper.

      Ooh, thanks for the rec. That was actually mentioned at breakfast – it wasn’t too far from Yellow Bird. Thanks again!

    Gem – I once again find myself reading your blog rather than working. Eat. Drink. Stagger. really is bad for productivity.

    Back to work…
