Quick Chop! My Kingdom for a Horse

My Kingdom for a Horse - 191 Wright Street, Adelaide SA 5000


One Sunday afternoon after a long, slow rise from a big Saturday night, I (Amanda) meet friends at My Kingdom for a Horse (MKH) for a recovery feast. It's a lovely sunny spring day and the light beaming through this corner cafe gives the place a warming happy vibe. It's quite a large cafe compared to all the quirky little lunch and brunch spots that have been popping up lately - great for large groups and for mum's with prams. And what's even better is that it's table service so this hangover victim doesn't have to rise from her seated coma!

I order an almond milk latte and sourdough toast with roasted heirloom tomatoes, avocado, lime, sea salt and a poached egg. The coffee comes out first and I notice the almond milk has separated and looks curdled. I've heard this can happen with almond milk coffees but I've not yet experienced it as my regular almond milk latte from Turi has never split and is always so smooth and creamy. Could it be that they are making their almond milk fresh that this happens...I'm not sure. I know almond milk cannot curdle so I drink away even though it doesn't look pleasant. It's a tad on the watery side and not very creamy. I decide I'd probably order a peppermint tea next time.

Breakfast arrives and it's delicious!  The fresh tangy flavours from the lime squeezed over the soft avocado is soul quenching! The addition of sea salt is very welcomed and is already beginning to soak up my alcohol remains! Good thick slices of toast and sweet heirloom tomatoes complete the perfect flavour combo. The only thing I can be critical about is that the poached egg is slightly under cooked. The yolk is nice and runny but part of the egg white is also runny which is hard to stomach when you're already feeling queasy (remember....hangover)! Luckily it's easy enough to scrape to the side and move on. Overall a good brunch dish.

I enjoyed my afternoon at MKH and will definitely drop in again next time I'm in the area. It seems like an all round easy place to go, relax and enjoy some decent brunch/lunch type of food.
