The Missing Piece, Macquarie Park

The Missing Piece is in the newly developed sec­tion of Macquarie Centre. Their stun­ning drinks con­vinced us T and N that it was a worthy brunch des­tin­a­tion over Easter.

D ordered the iced mocha ($5.50) (above, left), which he seemed to enjoy greatly — isn’t the chocol­ate rim so cute? I ordered the pomegreat­ness ($6.50) (above, right) a green tea infused with pomegranate, rasp­ber­ries, blue­ber­ries, straw­ber­ries, lime & mint. This is the most beau­ti­ful drink — some­thing like a red lagoon. And sur­pris­ingly enough the ber­ries were more than beau­ti­ful gar­nish — they were firm and fla­vour­ful. The tea itself was deli­cious — the sweet­ness and tart­ness of the vari­ous ber­ries bal­anced out and the hint of mint and lime gave a refresh­ing twist.

I had The Complete Picture ($16). This was sour­dough served with fried eggs, kip­fler pota­toes, bacon, grilled tomato and woods­moked mush­rooms. Overall, the dish was rather aver­age. The sour­dough was rather dense and not fluffy like I’m used to from Autolyse, and it’s not hard to do decent bacon, eggs, tomato and mush­rooms. The only stand out was the kip­fler pota­toes — they were ridicu­lously tasty and I would enjoy eat­ing a plate with just them.

Overall, the con­sensus was amaz­ingly beau­ti­ful and tasty drinks, but aver­age food.
