Dead Man Espresso, South Melbourne MELB

Alas, a Saturday whereby I get a blissful day off away from paperwork. Does not happen often but when it does, the first thing that pops to mind would be going to places I rarely go to due like markets or cafes that don't open on Sundays.

Equally glad that with more company surrounding the brunch table, I get to snap more food pictures and also taste more:) Midway through 2017, could not have asked for a better turnout for the year.

Small cafe with limited seating area, possibly requiring some patience especially during peak meal times. Nevertheless, efficient and friendly service.

Deadman's eggs benedict - hash cake with smoked pulled pork, seasonal greens and chilli hollandaise. Not a dish I would recommend for big eaters albeit being deliciously well seasoned.

Chai latte - my step down approach towards caffeine on the weekends.

The Reuben - salted beef grilled sandwich with sauerkraut, swiss cheese, horseradish cream and thousand island dressing served with pickles. First time having a reuben sandwich and it has won a spot in my tummy. Packed with acidic sauerkraut which is good for digestion, it took down the bold, meaty beef flavour by a notch, all slightly enhanced by the sharp cheese aroma.

Deadman chicken burger - buttermilk fried chicken with slaw and pickles. Chicken was a little burnt around the edges. A shame as it would have made the burger quite tasty overall. A pretty standard burger loaded with the usual condiments.
