I visited the rustic pearl for a brunch catch up with a friend.
It is a tiny little cafe, with a two seater table we snagged in the very corner of the cafe. It then has one row of tables, and from what I can remember some outside seating.
We looked at the menu, and both decided to go for what I’m guessing was a special, as it is not featured on their website menu – “char-grilled baby lobster flesh, crushed avocado, poached organic eggs with hollandaise sauce, fresh chives, coriander and chill” ($24). I must say it was all very well done. Great balance of flavours. I have to say I think the lobster was slightly over-cooked. So it wasn’t the best I think the dish could have been. But the hollandaise sauce was great, and the coriander, chives and chilli really gave it that added fresh kick to it. Coffee is decent (8/10).
Value for money: 7.5/10
