I’ve written about Streat before, and I’m posting about it again because I think it’s a bit underrated.
The food at Streat is good, drawing inspiration from different cuisines and places around the world, so it’s not just about bacon, eggs and toast. They don’t need a slick fit out and the latest shiny coffee machines. I like Streat so much that it’s our second most visited cafe (after Reading Rooms).
When Alastair and I had lunch there the other weekend, I ordered the ‘Seoul Cakes and Syrup’ ($16) which was a kimchi pancake, topped with Asian coleslaw, slices of pork belly and a chilli caramel syrup.
My kimchi pancake could’ve used a smidgen more salt, but it was pretty tasty with the fresh herbie-ness of the coleslaw. And pork belly, yes, no more needs to be said.
Alastair had the very pretty Turkish toast ($15.50) – brioche and rosewater French toast, with rhubarb, pistachio marzipan and praline, and Turkish fairy floss.
Another reason Streat deserves more love – their coffee is good too.
Keep doing what you’re doing, Streat. I’m a fan.
