Sails Cafe Margaret River… Again
After my initial visit I felt this little cafe had a lot of potential that just wasn’t quite realised in my crepe. Who the fuck orders a crepe for breakfast anyway? So I returned to try the crab omelette. The menu stating it was blue swimmer crab, herbs, chilli and ciabatta.
Now, when I order an omelette I kinda expect it to be folded and a little gooey in the middle. This was neither. The herbs and chilli were sparse like the shorts of every young girl on the street in Margaret River and the ciabatta was flashed under the grill just long enough to melt the butter. I want TOAST* with my breakfast, not warm bread! Once again I was disappointed. I really want to say it was delicious and tell all three people reading this that they should go there but, I’m sorry Sails, I can’t.
I should’ve just sat at home eating marron** like I did for the rest of my time in Margs.
Oh well, maybe I just gotta lower my standards a little…
*Toast is produced by something some people decided to call the Maillard reaction. This is a form of nonenzymatic browning. It results from a chemical reaction between an amino acid and sugar caused by radiant heat. Couldn’t be simpler eh?
**Marron. Western Australia’s fresh water crayfish and some of the best food of my trip so far. Details coming soon to a blog near you!
