Instead of going hiking because it was raining, we decided to stuff our faces with food. We decided to go to FourAteFive on Crown St. After sitting down, we were stuck deciding between breakfast and lunch. However, Linda and I figured, why not have both………? We ordered so much food…..
- Soy Latte in a Mug – $5
- Soy Chai in a pot – $5
- Moroccan Chicken Couscous Salad – $17
- Baked Eggs in Creamy Pancetta, Spinach and Leek with Mushrooms, Parmesan and Toast – $17
- Kumera Chips with Aioli – $6.50
- Mini Banana Loaf with Cinnamon Butter – $7.50
We got moved to a four person table from our original two person table because we ordered so much…
The Kumera chips came first. It was delicious! They were actually crispy and it was great with the aioli. It just needed a bit of salt but we did that ourselves. So no complaints. Afterwards, the salad came. It was not bad because the chicken wasn’t dry and rough. The spices were also very good. The couscous was different, not the usual type we had. It was chewier and bigger. Not sure if that’s actually what normal couscous is like…..
The banana loaf was really soft and tasted great with the cinnamon butter. It was really tasty. The highlight was probably the baked eggs. It was nice and creamy. However, Linda found it oily and salty towards the end because she ate all the bread. I only had a bit so it wasn’t too bad for me. I personally don’t like creamy things though. I never get creamy pasta but I didn’t find this too bad.
However, for me, this wasn’t a place I would go for coffee. There was nothing special about it. The chai was not too bad but it needs a bit more spice!
