Devon on Danks, Waterloo

When I saw photos of the #ddspecial at newly opened Devon on Danks making the rounds on Instagram, I knew I had to get there ASAP. Soft serve with hot chips? Um yes. I wasn’t disappointed. The salted caramel soft serve is excellent, the hot chips are super crunchy and I like that the black salt adds a bit of drama.

I also order the Dr Seuss’ Green egg and ham ($19), a beautifully presented plate of thick cut bacon, crispy potato, 63 degree egg, green tomato ketchup, pea puree, soy beans, pea tendrils, and jus. From what I can tell by other photos on Instagram, the crispy potato was meant to be a roesti kind of deal, but I’ve ended up with some hot chips instead. Don’t get me wrong – I love hot chips, but I was expecting something else. Otherwise, this is a great dish with all the right elements: a soft, gooey egg with tasty bacon that’s as thick as a steak, and a deceivingly green ketchup.

Not quite as impressive is the naked bruschetta ($14.50). Again the presentation is spot on, with roasted pumpkin, pea and goat’s curd mousse, sage and konbu crunch, soy beans, pea tendrils, focaccia cubes and a 63 degree egg. But I find the dish a bit forgettable, and the focaccia is on the dry side.

It’s a 30-degree day so I end up ordering a cold drip coffee ($6) instead of my typical soy latte. Today’s single origin is Ethiopia Kochere washed by Reuben Hills. It’s incredibly easy drinking and perfect for a hot, humid day.

  1. That’s so weird that they gave you a second pile of chips. We definitely got the roesti/potato croquette thing. The soft serve had a really nice flavour I agree!


    1. Yeah I guess they ran out!
