Ter­ror Twi­light

This Colling­wood café is a friend to the hung over and the health con­scious.

Time Out (Melbourne) - - FOOD AWARDS 2017 - By Emily Lloyd-tait

AS A CITY, we want cof­fee that hits the blood­stream like a Shinkansen so that for the rest of the day we’re run­ning at peak ef­fi­ciency. We want a menu that is kind to hang­overs, serv­ing up a thick, house­made pork sausage that’s al­most a ris­sole, wedged in­side a clas­sic English muf­fin with a soft fried egg and a fresh tomato chut­ney un­der moz­zarella. But some­times we want to dab­ble with clean liv­ing and or­der a broth bowl. At Ter­ror Twi­light, broth is poured over Ja­panese mush­rooms and bok choy, not so much cook­ing the veg­gies as sea­son­ing them. Two per­fect soft-boiled eggs warm up in the flavour on­sen, along­side soft buck­wheat noo­dles and a per­fectly caramelised sal­mon fil­let. Other things that have us crush­ing hard on this Colling­wood café in­clude the ter­ra­cotta coloured tiles warm­ing up in the sun that’s stream­ing in the win­dows. If this was a Tin­der date, you’d be im­pressed with their mu­sic taste: Daft Punk, Cat Power, Je­sus and Mary Chain and Ken­drick La­mar LPS are proudly on dis­play. These guys aren’t just get­ting a sec­ond date: they’re our num­ber one day­time squeeze for 2017. 13/11-13 John­ston St, Colling­wood 3066. 03 9417 0129. www.ter­rortwi­light.com.au.
