This is the perfect option for those who can never decide what to order at brunch. Brouhaha’s $55 brunch tray features enough food for two people and comes with two eggs Benedicts and waffle chicken bowls, sausage, smoked salmon, two sides of fruit, two juices and your choice of pancakes or French toast.

Grapefruit & Lemongrass Gin from Burwood Distillery

Last year, Burwood Distillery launched Garden Party, a series of small-batch gins in cool cucumber and triple berry flavours. This year, there’s a new addition: the grapefruit lemongrass gin, which has notes of citrus and juniper. You can buy the grapefruit and lemongrass gin on its own or get all three Garden Party flavours in the series.

Falooda from The Curryer

Is it a dessert or is it a drink? In a way, it’s both! Falooda, which The Curryer describes as “the Pakistani equivalent of Bubble Tea,” is a tempting treat made with ice cream, vermicelli, jelly, basil seeds and rose syrup. Stop by the Beltline restaurant on a Wednesday to try the specialty drink for 20 per cent off.

Ma Pies has collaborated with GR8 Thai Sauce to create a mouth-watering Thai veggie pocket pie. This product, which comes frozen so you can bake it at home, features GR8 Thai Sauce’s Massaman curry, paneer, green papaya, peas and carrots. Order directly from Ma Pies’ website, or visit its new market location inside Granary Road.



Thousand Layers Cake from Nila’s Taste of Indonesia

If you’re picking up food from this Indonesian eatery on your next visit to Crossroads Market, don’t forget to ask about its Thousand Layers Cake. The cake is pleasing to look at with its many even layers and is made with a homemade spekkoek spice mix. Along with original, the cake comes in flavours like pandan, prunes and almond.
