The den is comfortable and easy, and we loved the Some Young Punks appropriately wolf themed artwork.
Our first choice from the menu was the ‘Hey Amigo’ Omelette, promising jalapeño, red onion, mint, parsley and corn. We frequently choose Mexican inspired breakfast dishes and this one was flavoursome with a nice kick while still being a relatively safe option. The serving size was generous and we were glad we didn’t add the optional extra, jamon serrano.
Our next choice was something different for us, a savoury french toast. It was an incredibly cheesy toast and very crisp. It lost the softness in the centre but had all the richness of a sweet brioche french toast. It was served with bacon, cheese foam, pickled jalapeño, asparagus and a cured egg yolk. This was a very heavy dish and we didn’t manage to finish it, but we applaud Hobba for such a warm and inventive dish, the Melbourne breakfast scene needs more savoury french toast on its menus!
Hobba is a lovely Prahan cafe and we consider ourselves a part of their wolfpack from now on!
