Corner on Bellair, Kensington

I think baked eggs are officially the breakfast fad of 2007. Especially if served in a cast iron pan. So it wasn't really a surprise to see baked eggs on the menu at The Corner on Bellair, 170 Bellair St, Kensington, Tel +61 3 9372 2844. At least they've come up with a cool name for it: "bunged inna pan brekkie".

I should have gone with the fad. Because the eggs benedict wasn't great. It was OK, but the eggs had been poached in those little igloo-shaped containers and were too runny, and the honey ham showed very little sign of grilling, apart from a brown stain in one or two places (suggesting contact with a frying pan at some point during its preparation). The hollandaise wasn't bad.

If you like maple syrup, there are two dishes to choose from. An American breakfast of scrambled eggs, bacon and French toast smothered in maple syrup. Or "to die for" (their claim, not mine) French toast with bacon, grilled banana, a touch of cinnamon and, of course, maple syrup. Actually, for $2, maple syrup is an extra you can add to just about anything. It would probably go well with the waffles, berries, ice cream and marscapone. Who knows, waffles may be the fad of 2008?

Hi there,
Apologies if I've missed it and you've done this already, but I would love to see your efforts in the kitchen and to see what the man who comments about everyone elses breakfasts can do in the kitchen. I see you've won awards for your blog and even appeared in a newspaper, which suggests to me you might know what you're talking about. I think to critisise others, you need to know where they are coming from, so Mr Breakfast man, I put the challenge to you, show us some of YOUR cooking prowess and show us that you can meet your own standards.

My friend, I'll take a wild stab in the dark and say that you try to be a well informed person who likes to read and converse. Why else would you put someone on the spot like that? This might give you the misplaced impression that you are smarter than you really are, which is why you show this type of misplaced bravado. I also seem to see that you are a coward of sorts, hence the "anonymous" facade you hide behind.

Does a music critic have to play an instrument, or be able to sing in order to know when they hear something great?

Argument for the sake of doing so is not very becoming or endearing.

my 2 cents.
