New Brunch Menu at Cold Tea Restaurant

The chefs team recently launched a weekend brunch service that runs from 12 pm – 3 pm on Saturday and Sunday. Chef Liam Breen has added some wonderful, tasty dishes celebrating Chinese and Vietnamese cuisine. My friend Sheryl joined me to taste through this new exciting menu.

1st dish:

CONFIT DUCK

Scallion pancake, fried egg, ginger scallion oil, maple; just loved the perfectly cooked confit duck leg and the scallion pancake combo.

 2nd dish:

HONG KONG FRENCH TOAST

Peanut butter stuffed French toast, creme anglaise, whipped cream, pistachio biscotti; such a delicious brunchy dessert (or it could be the one dish you have).

3rd dish:

CHAR SIU BREAKFAST SANDO

Char siu roasted pork, fried egg, Sriracha mayo, scallion, crunchy onion, pickled cucumber; I didn’t have the egg, but everything else was really good, great flavours.

4th dish:

SMASHED CUCUMBER SALAD

English cucumber, cilantro, chilli oil, rice vinaigrette; this was a refreshing salad.

5th dish:

VEGAN POTSTICKERS

(5 pieces) Vegan potstickers, kombucha squash, coconut cream, lemongrass; my favourite of their dumplings.

6th dish:

BLACK SHEEP

(5 pieces) Minced lamb dumpling, black vinegar satay; another favourite.

7th dish:

PHO LONG BAO

(4 pieces) Beef pho soup dumplings; a new item on their menu.
