Been wanting to try this place for around 2 years and finally went after some errands at uni. Love how this place isn't too far of a walk from Central, and no need to walk up the hill.
Crunchy Potato Rosti: smoked salmon, roasted cherry tomato, feta, spinach, poached egg, saffron hollandaise, crushed pistachio-$16
perfectly poached egg
We both opted for Le Monde's Signatures from the menu. You had a choice between smokehouse bacon or salmon, and since salmon is healthier and less fattening, I went with that option. Salmon wasn't overly smoked, and that yolk in combination with the rosti didn't make the potato dry. You could see heaps of oil since it's been fried, it didn't feel too oily in your mouth-crunchy outside, soft inside. The pistachios were a pleasant addition in the dish which did add flavour without being salty. Lovely creaminess from the cheese and veggies were cooked well.
Truffled Poached Eggs: grilled haloumi, confit tomato, avocado, white truffle oil on toasted miche-$16
Tried a bit of the this dish, and unfortunately the truffle oil they used was just way too subtle, and almost undetectable. I guess we were expecting at least a hit of fragrance or taste but that didn't happen. The sourdough here was also super hard to cut into.
