After we went to my toy store (aka Pantry Magic) last Sunday, we wandered around the quiet neighborhood of Sheung Wan looking for a restaurant to brunch and stumbled upon the new restaurant, Nosh. Despite it still being in its soft opening stage, it was pretty much a full house when we walked in.
Nosh is located right off of Tai Ping Shan Street, which is an up-and-coming area of Sheung Wan filling up with art galleries, coffee shops, restaurants and cool little shops.
I thought the decor of this casual cafe was modern and chic with its white walls and ceilings and black accents. Located on a corner location of the street, natural light was just spilling into this space.
I loved their idea of opening up the side of the restaurant (which I presume were originally 2 large windows) and using it for a high bench with bar stools, allowing some of their patrons to sit outside.
We ordered the Nosh Brunch ~ 2 poached eggs on their homemade sourdough, German sausages with yoghurt, roasted vine tomatoes, potatoes and grilled portobello. The eggs were poached perfectly and their bread just soaked up the eggs and sauce. The sausages were my favorite on the plate. Not a lot of places serve a good quality sausage with their English breakfast, but Nosh definitely knows what to serve you.
We also had a side of their perfectly crisp bacon and baked beans. In my mind, Sunday brunch is never complete without some bacon! And Nosh’s crispy bacon definitely did the job for me. The baked beans were ok, nothing really special there.
Now onto the Bruschetta Trio. You can select 3 out of the 6 different bruschetta’s on their menu. Our selection:
- Fig, Goats Cheese, Honey & Rosemary ~ This was HEAVENLY. I love simple food that let’s the ingredients speak for itself.
- Tomato, Mozzarella, Basil and Balsamic Reduction ~ This one was a bit clumsy to eat, but nonetheless it was light and refreshing.
- Proscuitto, Tomato Chutney & Capers ~ My hubby loves anything with proscuitto, so they couldn’t go wrong with this combo.
The best part of the bruschetta was definitely their homemade sourdough ~ chewy and tangy, need I say more?
We ordered some of their fresh juice’s and coffee with our meal. Nosh also offers pastries, baked goods and lighter menu items for those on the go.
We also snapped a photo of their friendly neighbor, Secret Ingredient 🙂
This is a place we will definitely make our way back to. If you’re ever in the this neighborhood, you should check it out too.
