Brunch in the East #4: Butter Dish Eatery in Camberwell

I recently received an invite to dine at Butter Dish Eatery and decided that since I had a day off last Friday, I'd take a slow drive down for brunch with my friend, R.

Butter Dish Eatery is conveniently located right next door to the Camberwell Market on the Riversdale Road front. There are heaps of 2P free parking at the market, or if you're catching the train, Butter Dish is only a short 10 minutes walk from the Camberwell station.

I was instantly attracted to the array of the pastries and sweet treats on display upon entering the cafe.

Good lord, don't you agree with me that it all looks very alluring? The greedy pig in me wanted one each of everything! :P

When I was provided the menu to peruse, the one item that really stood out on the menu was this:

Peanut butter hot chocolate with crushed maltesers!!! I know I know, it is so very naughty but damn, it was deliciously indulgent!

I've never had a hot chocolate this luscious before, seriously. Every mouthful was an absolute delight! Whoever invented this bomb is a genius! Peanut butter + chocolate + maltesers = LOVE!!

Seriously, I have not stopped raving about it. I tell everyone I see about how it's the best hot choc I've ever had, and I highly recommend you give it a try too. Your waistline might not be too pleased, but upon the first sip, you will thank me for it. Yep, you're welcome! ;)

Moving onto food, we started first with savoury - the sautéed mushrooms and chives, sitting atop a hidden poached egg on Noisette brioche toast, and finished with grated Parmesan cheese.

Oh my, it arrived smelling out of the world delicious!! I can assure you, this dish tastes just as delicious as it looks.

My photo does not do this dish any justice, but it was SO SO GOOD! I reckon it would have been even more perfect if there was an extra egg for more yolkporn hehehe. ;)

Next up, a sweet brekkie option. I haven't been able to stop thinking about this delectable dish - croissant French toast served with rose panna cotta, baked rhubarb, meringue and white chocolate chunks. So so delish, every biteful was heavenly!

And of course with a display so beautiful, I had to at least wrap up my meal with one of the sweet treats. I opted for the carrot cake with cream cheese frosting, to go with my green tea. Man, the frosting was so delectable, I wished there was more. :P

To be honest, I went in for the tasting with no expectations, but I was really blown away by how good everything tasted; from food to drinks and even the sweet treats.

Even though it was an invite, I would be more than happy to return on my own dollar, especially for that hot chocolate!!

A little tip to note is that the cafe is quite small so try to get in early. I hope you will enjoy Butter Dish Eatery as much as I did.
