Went to check out the newly opened Koko Head Cafe with my two aunties. This restaurant is in the old 12th Avenue Grill spot and they only serve brunch.
We waited close to an hour for a table. FYI: Your whole party has to be there to be seated.
We shared the following dishes: The cornflake coated french toast this comes with billionaire’s bacon,creamy black pepper maple, frosted flake gelato.
Pillows of french toast coated with cornflakes then deep fried. Kinda reminded me of malasadas...so good!
Kitchen sink salad...this changes daily and depends on what ingredients they have.
This particular day was a "green goddess" theme.
Loved the dill in the dressing.
We wondered how they got the cucumbers to become "stars".
The Don Buri Chen...Miso smoked pork, five spice pork belly, French-style scrambled eggs, house-made pickles, chicharron, sushi rice.
Our chicharron had been sitting while we were finishing up our salad, so this was hard.as.rock.
But, the smoked pork and the pork belly were awesome!
The place is quite noisy so don't expect to have much conversation. Just take in what everyone else is ordering.
There was one party of older people and the guy pulled out his smartphone. The waiter asked him, "Would you like me to take a photo of you folks?"
And the guy said,"Nah, I just wanted to take a picture of the food!"...too cute!
Despite the wait and noise, the food is good...I hope to bring Satoshi here.
I'll be back.
