Mr Hendricks is a relatively new Melbourne cafe, located out along the shopping strip of Whitehorse Road in Balwyn. Parking was easy on the road, and we took it as a good sign already that there were quite a number of people waiting outside although we came for a semi-late lunch. Don't you just love all day brunch!
After not too long a wait, we were shown inside. Staff were friendly and pleasant, and our food and orders didn't take too long to arrive.
Their coffees are from Padre, in their Mr Hendricks House Blend. MerlinFan had her Latte and I had my Cappuccino. Both were smooth and nutty - my cappuccino could have been just a tad stronger but I'm nitpicking.
MerlinFan had the Buttermilk fried chicken bap. Delicious buttermilk fried chicken sitting atop a bed of cabbage and carrot salad, topped with picked cucumber and siracha mayonnaise. It was faultless - MerlinFan really liked it. She also got Rosemary fries to go with it. Whereas MerlinFan found the rosemary too overpowering for her, I liked it, so I was happy to finish it off for her. And I swear the chips tasted better and better the more you dug into the bottom of that mound of crispy fried goodness!
|Buttermilk fried chicken bap $15, Rosemary fries $3.50|
|Crispy eggs $19|
