Often on a weekday evening, you’ll find me huddled at my desk at work at some ungodly o’clock, cursing to myself about the late hours that I have to work. Sometimes, I take it out on the twitterverse. It’s just this job I have, and without saying too much and being dooced, all I’ll say is… I sometimes work late nights.
But you see, there is a plus side to working late nights. The biggest plus being that I Get To Sleep In. On a weekday BOOYAH! I betcha y’all don’t all get to sleep in. Unless you do, in which case, the second plus is that instead of cramming and queuing with the rest of humanity to get a decent brunch on a weekend, I get to cruise down the road, sit where I want and enjoy a chillaxed brunch. All on a Wednesday morning.
There’s this place on King Street in Newtown called Citrus. I LOVES THIS PLACE. When I was living in Newtown, I probably came here at least once a week, if not to eat, then to indulge in their awesome chai latte, which is by the way, as big as my head.
I sense a theme with consuming things which are as big as my head.
It’s a bit of a mission this chai latte, a fully fledged meal on its own. I’ve learned from my gluttonous past that I can’t deal with one of these mofos and a full breakfast at the same time. So maybe I’m wiser now or maybe just plain older, but when I have the chai latte? I have it just with Turkish toast.
Panu had a teensy weensy coffee, so he was allowed to have bacon and poached eggs, served on thick country-style toast.
Today was a particularly good day for a sleep in and lazy brunch. The weather was a spectacular 25 degrees celcius and we got to sit outside! Shame Citrus doesn’t have a website, but if you’re ever in Newtown, go check it out. They do brilliant breakfasts and brunches, amazing salads and all kinds of delicious meaty, pastary, seafoodery mains.
