Apparently I am not doing much else besides having breakfast on the weekend. Seems to be true when I look at all my recent posts. On a recent Saturday we went to Café Leopold. Already from the website an Asian influence was noticeable. Not so much anymore when looking at the menu. In the end though, the Asian vibe comes across on the plate. Something I like a lot.
I ordered the avocado sandwich with poached eggs and sauce Hollandaise. Not really sure why I did that because the last time I ate this combination, I disliked it immensely. At Café Leopold, while the individual components kind of lack in taste, the dish comes together in perfect harmony. The white bread and the typical Bánh mì consistency. I know it’s a Baguette, but it’s also different. Less crusty outside and softer in the middle. I am positively surprised by how well the combination worked. The salad has a distinct Asian dressing.
The omelette with feta on the other hand doesn’t work. I think there is only feta on top and whatever cheese was inside might have been cottage cheese or ricotta. It lacks in depth and flavor and falls rather flat. Even after seasoning it repeatedly, my friend was not happy with his meal. At least it came with two different kinds of bread rolls.
Service was really nice and the waiter was one of the few, who still checked the ‘Green Pass’. It was a bit weird to sit by ourselves the first couple of minutes. Even when we left the restaurant still had a lot available seats. The glass structure, with unobstructed view on the courtyard of the MQ, was busy though. What can I say, I was happy with my meal, my friend not. It might be interesting to try Café Leopold for a meal at a different time of the day. Yours, Pollybert
