In a delightful leafy location on the edge of Shenton Park sits The Little Pantry. There is seating inside and out through the back conservatory, and it’s a peaceful homely space – ideal for a leisurely brunch.
The menu contained lots of yummy options and I started with a lovely spring smoothie while I browsed the menu.
My partner chose a soy decaf flat white, which he says was tasty, smooth and delicious.
After much deliberation over fried cauliflower, coconut panacotta, truffle scrambled eggs and the like, I opted for the patatas bravas with aioli, tomato, and poached eggs. The potatoes were a delight – wonderfully crispy, the eggs nicely gooey, and the tomatoes fresh and summery. This was a great dish and one that I would have again in a heartbeat.
My partner chose the kimchi dashi rice bowl – an artwork of kimchi with fried eggs, radish, lotus root, gochujang (hot pepper paste), sesame and herbs. The kimchi was the star of the dish with great companion flavours from the other ingredients, making for a stellar combination.
As we left, we perused the cake cabinet, and it looked very appetising. We’re already planning a return visit to this little oasis in Shenton Park. Fabulous food and a relaxed setting – highly recommended.
