8.52am, Thursday 29th November, Federal Street, Auckland Central, New Zealand
Morning folks, here I am at my favorite bench, right up the back at Depot Eatery, next to the open kitchen. There’s 3 fab brekky options here, and for the last two days I’ve walked the line with a bowl of the house blend muesli topped with a liberal dollop of natural yoghurt and stewed rhubarb. Not today. I gave in. It’s a Bacon & Egg ‘Doona’ .Translated, Doona = colloquial term for a fluffy quilt = the very fluffy bread roll wrapped around the bacon, egg, and home made tomato chilli relish.
We have a solid day out in the Auckland trade today, catching up with some private customer clients this evening at the Yalumba stronghold down at the Viaduct – Soul Bar – then pack the bags and off to Sydney early tomorrow morning.
But for now, if it’s breakfast time in Auckland…….it’s Depot!
