I’ve always tried to follow the rule to do what the locals do when travelling (they know the best places). A chance to catch up with lovely local G who took us to her favourite brunch place: Three Bags Full. Yay! Thank gosh she took me, otherwise I wouldn’t have ventured out of the city – one of my favourite meals in the entire trip, yep that’s how high ranked it is.
Yes, this smashed avocado dish had me wanting to throw all my money at it – just take it, take it all! Smooth, creamy avocado and a nice surprise biting into the feta cheese mixed in. Slices of radishes was dressed on top that gave the dish more texture and made me feel a wee bit healthier :) All this piled high on extremely crunchy toast – more than filling, I didn’t want to stop eating.

C’s pulled pork burger was fresh and delicious – soft pulled pork meat, drizzled with bbq sauce all sitting inside fresh brioche bread mmm.

Thank you G for taking us – another food highlight of the trip :) I can see why it’s her favourite brunch place with all this amazing, pretty plated food.
