Jam Face Cafe Adelaide
Jam Face cafe in Adelaide Central Market is the brain child of the fantastically talented Poh Ling Yeow of Master Chef fame. Eat My Street was invited along for a breakfast feast at this adorable little cafe in the heart of the market, as part of the Tasting Australia Words to Go Festival. I was in for a never ending brunch spread in the style of Alice in Wonderland but minus the Matt Hatter.
We all gathered around the cute little timber tables hand-built Poh and Johnno (her husband) and tried the delicious house made granola and yoghurt which had a very pleasing blend of tartness, sweetness, and crunch. This was followed by a skinny flat white that I had been dreaming about all morning and once that was finished my tummy was feeling very happy. Little did I know that there were another 5 courses to follow.
Next we were served Poh’s silken, salty, scrambled eggs. I am calling “best over” on these memorable scrambled eggs. They were so delicious that I frequently have cravings for them and I am still busily experimenting in my own kitchen trying to replicate the dish. (Is it worth taking a flight to eat eggs? Adelaide is a long way away…..)
Next up was the oh so stylish bacon and egg sandwich. This came with an excellent toasted parmesan and thyme crust that served to elevate the dish to next level goodness.
Baked beans in their gorgeous little orange pots came fresh from the oven, followed by buttermilk pancakes and then a lavish plate of pastries. Cooking with pastry is Poh’s first love and it certainly showed in the intricate detail of her pastry creations.
This was all accompanied by Poh’s own range of cold pressed juices, with interesting combinations such as watermelon strawberry and mint juice and beetroot, lemon and chocolate mint juice.
I really loved my breakfast at Poh’s Jam Face cafe. The classic brunch/ breakfast dishes all had their own unique “plot twists” that made them memorable and excellent. The cafe fit out was cosy and comfortable and imbibed with Poh’s creative flair.
If you already thought Poh was talented (and I am pretty sure that we all do) then wait until you check out her new little cafe. You will delight in its tasty, colourful creations, just like Alice down the rabbit hole.
