the wedge espresso

Wednesday, May 22, 2013

I have been a sad, deprived child lately. My last food adventure must've been weeks ago, which is way too long for someone who obsesses over it like I do... It's not like I don't have the time either, but if your friends aren't available to join you it gets a bit depressing. Anyway, that's why I was more than happy to visit The Wedge Espresso in Glebe with Anna yesterday! If you're Asian too, you might relate to our tendency to eat out... and have even more Asian food. Not that it's a bad thing, but eating at a hole-in-the-wall cafe was a nice change for once. By the way, I'm speaking literally when I say that this place is a hole in the wall, especially since it's a really airy space that lines the side of the street! It wasn't packed when we went, but I could see how it'd fill up quickly in time for brunch on the weekend...

The seasonal menu, iced tea, quirky interiors and iced mocha

After much deliberation I decided to go with the iced mocha, and lo and behold... it even came with a little scoop of ice-cream floating in the middle of it! I thought it tasted pretty good, even though it definitely wasn't what I expected at first. In fact, it kind of reminded me of my younger days when I used to dump copious amounts of Milo into a cup, add milk and just eat all the delicious chocolate left in the bottom. Don't go judging me okay, I know I can't have been the only kid that was guilty of doing that!

Anna's tomato and ricotta bruschetta, my 'The Henry' sandwich

 Honestly, pictures can't convey the full awesomeness of what was in that sandwich. Egg, ham, gruyere cheese, avocado, and a good dose of greens... basically, it was a ham and cheese toastie on steroids. It also doesn't hurt that I LOVE gooey eggs of any sort, so this definitely hit the spot for me! Even though it was one of the more expensive items on the menu I'd say that the price was well justified, especially considering how full I was afterwards.

Banana bread with peanut butter dulce de leche

After finishing her bruschetta Anna decided that she still had room for more, so a slice of banana bread was in order. I stole a bit of it topped with peanut butter, and wow. The bread was so moist and faintly reminded me of my mum's spiced carrot cake, only better and flavoured with banana (sorry mum)! To be honest I'm not a big fan of bananas in their original state, but when it comes to breads and cakes? You could call me obsessed.

Well, I couldn't not have a photo of the aftermath. In fact, I'm already mentally planning the day I go back, especially since there were so many other delicious sounding things on the menu! In the meantime though, I think I'll have to settle for my sub par sandwiches in an attempt to recreate the experience... Anyway, I think that's all for today and I hope you somewhat enjoyed my food ramblings. Hope you're having a great week so far, and bye!

  9. I love banana bread, and carrot cake, and banana/carrot/walnut bread/cake. This makes me miss food in Australia, people see it will think 'nothing I can't get anywhere else' but there's just so. much. love. in the food that gets served in Australia. At least that's what it feels like when comparing eat outs.
