New Bliss has an ever-changing menu, and it’s always exciting to be invited to try the new menu. This time, they also had a new chef cooking up a storm!
The coffee was creamy, delicious and strong. I can never fault their coffee, and love the Bellissimo beans! My sister ordered a mango and coconut smoothie with mango, coconut, dates, vanilla & coconut milk. She commented that it was very refreshing with a strong coconut flavour.
The new menu features less Irish influenced dishes, and more ‘classic’ breakfasts.
One thing we noticed is that there is an absence of ‘light’ or really sugary breakfasts, so if you are after a granola or museli, you won’t find it here. This didn’t bother me, as I never really pick those breakfasts.
I ordered turkish eggs – 2 poachies, roast mushrooms, labneh, chumichuri, paprike oil & dukkah with sourdough ($18.00). The flavours were delicious and strong – I loved the creamy labna mixed with the tasty chumichuri. The poached eggs were cooked to perfection. This dish is, however, extremely mushroom-y, which I didn’t realise upon ordering. I also think there was a little too much olive oil compared to the amount of bread on the plate. However, overall, it was a satisfying and tasty dish.
My sister ordered the miso avocado – avocado on thick cut sourdough with cashew miso butter, tahini dressing, coriander, chilli flakes & fresh lime ($16.00). She commented that the miso butter mixed well with the avocado, perfected by the lime on the side, but that the serving side was a little on the small size for the price.
My partner ordered from the signature Irish influenced section of the menu, choosing the breakfast roll with clonakilty sausage, black pudding, bacon & two fried eggs in a crispy warm baguette. This dish was extremely hearty and meaty, within a warm and crispy roll. Having never tried black pudding before, I found it very tasty and unique.
We enjoyed another fabulous visit to New Bliss and a taste of the new menu. I’m looking forward to my next visit and trying something new again!
