I caught up for a brunch date at the wildly popular Three Bags Full with three out of the four beautiful girls (miss you S!) I'd sent 90% of my last semester at university with. It was a typical Melbourne day: a miserable rainy morning that warmed up into a beautiful sunny day. Unsurprisingly though, there was a significant wait in getting a table for four. I saw quite a few people give up, probably with the intent of finding food on Victoria St or the like, but there were those that steadfastly remained. Perhaps they knew that the food was definitely waiting for.

Originally, I'd intended to order the vegetarian breakfast, but after seeing the specials menu and realising that I could get a potato and leek hash, with poached eggs and fried haloumi, my decision was made for me. If you've ever had breakfast/brunch/lunch/dinner with me, you'll know that I'm addicted to potato hash/roesti, eggs and goat's cheese. I never stood a chance with this dish.

I'm getting a little distracted though. The other girls also ordered amazing dishes, all as it would turn out, from the breakfast menu. I guess we just weren't feeling like lunch yet. Like me, F had already decided on another dish before seeing the specials and subsequently ordering corn fritters, poached eggs and chorizo instead.
