With a bit of rummaging you can find a good gluten free breakfast and Orto Trading Co., has one of the best I’ve seen, check this out:
This was one of several gluten free brunch options. Snug under those mushrooms, the sautéed spinach, the poached egg and the hollandaise sauce is a slab of ‘rosti’; that fancy hash brown claimed by the Swiss Germans. This version is made with feta cheese and it’s got lots of zing.
Orto Trading Co. is a breezy, sunlit urban pocket. The outdoor area features a stack of potted herbs, perfect on a sunny Sydney Winter morn.
Another ‘gf’ option listed on the brunch menu is the ‘Boston Baked Beans’:
I don’t think Howard (below) would have been so down if his beans were made with maple glazed onions topped with a poached egg, crispy pork belly and clumps of thyme.
‘Howard the Celeriac’, my gf twitter buddy in Brixton, London, has kindly allowed me to reprint one of his cheeky cartoon illustrations here. If you’re a coeliac and haven’t come across his work, check it out at www.howardtheceleriac.com and have a good laugh and cry at your own expense. Does this scene look familiar???
Better go to Orto – open for lunch and dinner, (with gf and vegetarian options), closed Mondays and Sunday evenings.
