Had Eggs Benedict at Cafe Lava in Melbourne (again).

Came back here to try the 'regular' eggs benedict. They call this 'Swedish style' here and use smoked salmon instead of pig.
YES: Eggs poached perfectly, really good muffin base, hollandaise was spot-on, decent spinach. Salmon was a good alternative to ham.
NO: I prefer ham to salmon. That's a proper eggs benedict. Sadly not an option here. Otherwise a fine breakfast. 8/10

Had Eggs Beneditct at Cafe Lava in Melbourne.

YES: Eggs Benedict 'Italian Style'. Hollandaise sauce was ORANGE. Prosciutto, spinach, poached eggs (perfect), sourdough toast (yummy) and capsicum hollandaise sauce (rare).
NO: This was disappointing. It was pretty good, but nothing compared to the Eggs Benedict in New Zealand... I thought it was a bit acidic. You shouldn't fuck with the classic Eggs Benedict. 6/10

New Zealand

Had Eggs Benedict with Matt and Jess at Cafe Neve by the Fox Glacier.

YES: Perfect Hollandaise mix. Absolutely perfect eggs. Ham was really good, too. Presentation was honest and simple. Just right.
NO: It was pissing it down in New Zealand. It was shite.
OVERALL: My favourite Eggs Benedict so far... But I think I can do better. Watch this space. 9/10

The Diner

I had Eggs Benedict at The Diner in Shoreditch with the lovely Vickie.

YES: No stupid salad and shit all over the place. Salmon option (extra). We made a smiley face with half an onion ring. Malted milkshakes.
NO: Hollandaise sauce was slightly vinigary, but I really am clutching at straws.
OVERALL: Pretty fucking good- 7/10.

The Premises.

YES: Eggs were cooked properly (runny) and Hollandaise sauce was good.
NO: What's up with all the strange salad bits around the plate? And Olives on top? They look like tits.
OVERALL: 5/10.

I've decided to begin my journey of finding the perfect Eggs Benedict right here at home...

Location: Jeff's House click for map

Good: Two nicely poached, runny eggs. Delicious crispy Parma ham.

Bad: Hollandaise sauce was from a jar - home-made would be better. No hash browns on the side - infact nothing on the side!

Overall: 8/10
