An update on Demitri's Feast

Reading through the very extensive coverage of Richmond on Eat (Almost) Anything at Least Once, I stumbled across a review of Demitri's Feast, a cafe whose reviews I am always interested to read as I had such a strange, inconsistent experience there. This is post is a comparison, just for interest's sake, of two pictures of the same dish. Obviously the quality of my picture is not as clear, but the differences in the dishes is still obvious:

From Eat (Almost) Anything at Least Once, the Fried Eggs - a dish that doesn't look particularly exciting, but simple and probably some people's idea of a perfect, basic breakfast.

The dish that Bf received: apparently the same dish, but presented in an appalling manner, unlike the neat, clean stack above, and we assume the kitchen ran out of the lokaniko sausage as there were a few pieces but most of the meat served was bacon. (This was not explained to us at all when the waitress delivered the meal).

Finding this photo was very interesting for me as I had already done a whole blog post on how Demitri's delivered a few great dishes, but failed to keep up that same high standard. It's just incredible to me that the same dish can be served to two customers so differently - one presented quite nicely in a stack and the other, an unappealing mess - within the space of less than a month.


  1. They've had a change of chef. Seems to have hit them hard.

  2. That's very interesting to know, I didn't realise that! Wow... what a difference it's made.
