Your usual breakfast fare.
At first glance, New Farm Deli isn’t your usual breakfast haunt. More like your local Italian Deli, no one would have guessed that this deli come restaurant would be more popular for its breakfast and lunch fare than its hand cured and sliced prosciutto. As lovers of kitsch interiors and breakfast joints that mirror grandma’s front sitting room, we found the atmosphere to lack the cosiness that a late Sunday breakfaster craves. In order to give the food the chance to be the deli’s redeeming quality, we ordered the Deli Stack with Salmon, which consisted of a potato and feta rosti, avocado and 2 poached eggs, and a special of baked eggs with chorizo. The food came out promptly, considering the overflowing tables surrounding us, and looked appetising to both the eyes and the tummy. Unfortunately, the New Farm Deli did not live up to its reputation on this particular visit. The Deli Stack lacked any flavour and acidity, and would have benefited from hollandaise or an onion jam for the rosti. On a positive note, the baked eggs had more flavour and a nice spicy kick to it. Unfortunately, the eggs were rather dry and overcooked, so this just added to our overall disappointment. Overall, we really wanted to love New Farm Deli but this visit left us wanting more than the basic breakky fare. In our books, everyone deserves a second chance, so check back here and we will keep you posted!
