WillimAugust 7, 2011
Inside, Willim hosts a pleasant mix of clientele, there were a few young people, a couple of elderly women gossiping over cappuccinos, and the perennial cafe-sitter of the Eastern suburbs, The Soccer Mum. Nonetheless, I really loved the attractive, celler-esque fit out and atmosphere of the place.
I’ve recently gotten into the terrible habit of looking up the menu of cafes/restaurants on Urbanspoon.com and choosing what I want before I actually get to the restaurant, which is not a good thing at all because it removes the spontaneity from going to a new place. The other downside is that I sometimes build up my expectations of a dish, or imagine it to be something else and am disappointed when the actual plate appears in front of me.
The flip side of this OCD behaviour is that I get awfully excited about going, and eager to tuck into whatever dish (or dishes) catches my eye. The later was the case with Willim. I’ve written before about my freakish obsession with avocado, and there’s nothing better than some well-poached eggs. I’ve also come to the conclusion, over my brunching chronicles, that a good multigrain bread is the best match for eggs and avocado. Sourdough is the next best thing.
I went a bit nuts photographing my eggs, setting up the toast and trying to stage a “yolk dribble” shot, and later a “casual mid-meal shot”. I loved this dish, simple but yummy.
