Climb aboard the expresso train that has now made its way to Braybrook. Find your caffeine fix at Braybrook STN, from the same folks behind Workshop Brothers and other STN cafes. While you're there, stay for some breakfast or brunch, with a menu that largely deviates from the typical offerings around Melbourne.
Our visit took place a few months ago during quite a warm day, and so we couldn't go past the cured salmon poke bowl and wasabi milk chicken soba noodles. Both options were fresh and light, perfectly suited for the warmer weather, and full of balanced flavours that made for one enjoyable bite after another. The latter dish in particular left quite the impression with its distinct fragrant flavour profile created by the combination of ginger, turmeric, spring onion, hot sesame dressing and fried shallots.
Note. the items we ordered may no longer be available with a seasonal menu change.
Poke bowl - with cured salmon, chargrilled corn, edamame beans, pickled vegetables, avocado, soba noodles and sesame soy dressing.
Wasabi milk chicken soba noodles - with broccolini, ginger, turmeric, spring onion, hot sesame dressing and poached egg.
