Love smashed avocado? It's a staple of Melbourne cafe culture. But how about a kick of chilli? And superb Meredith goats cheese? Avocado toast is a popular item at the Foodrinkery; a simple dish but loads of smashed avocado with delightful Meredith goats cheese, fresh chilli, avocado oil and lemon on quality bread. You can add a poached egg or even add other sides such as free range bacon or hoisin mushroom, for example. So rewarding.
