Red Door Corner Store, Northcote by Rockstar

Red Door Corner Store is a large airy popular Northside brunch option... which takes bookings. Sounds too good to be true. I loved the quirky decorations which make a nod to its milkbar past... especially the milk bottle lights!

I often find brunch can have such high expectations which often aren’t met... or just miss the mark slightly. I would rate this brunch as one of the best I’ve had in a long time. Every dish was well executed and delicious. The service was friendly and efficient.

Red Door Corner Store, Northcote, eggs and bacon
The kids enjoyed their shared scrambled eggs and bacon... the bacon was perfect - meaty with rendered fat and crispy bits... I may have stolen a taste!

Miss Red enjoyed the Shakshuka - rich tomatoey passata with chorizo, soft eggplant, and feta with zatar flatbread and green chilli oil. The sauce was full and flavoursome.

Red Door Corner Store, Northcote, dukkah eggs
Mr Red demolished his dukkah eggs with crushed avocado, saffron poached pears, feta and herb salad, pomegranate and flatbread. It was rather pretty as well as delicious!

My smoked trout with spanner crab mayonnaise, cucumber, chervil, dill, curry leaves on a house made crumpet minus the bronze fennel (see first pic) was just lovely! The crumpet was light and quite fluffy, and worked well with the delicate trout and crab flavours. The curry leaves added an interesting flavour that grew on me as I kept eating. The chervil and dill freshened up the richness of the dish, helping to ensure I finished it all! I didn’t want to leave any behind, as I thought I’d regret it later!

Red Door Corner Store, Northcote, spicy eggs and ocean trout
Miss Green ordered the special - the spicy scrambled eggs with hickory house smoked ocean trout, spring onion, coriander, chilli, tomato and toasted sesame seeds on toast. She found it quite spicy but enjoyable!

Red Door Corner Store, Northcote, quinoa fritters
Mr Green loved his quinoa, zucchini and corn fritters with avocado, refried beans, charred corn, tomato and jalapeƱo salad, house made salsa rojo and poached egg.
