Sydney Food Diary: Grandma at McEvoy, Alexandria

Listen the food is fine here, but I kind of liked the way the whole place made me ask questions. Like how they get business? My guess is that it’s all people on their way to shop at Bunnings, Victoria’s Basement Warehouse, and Petbarn, because there’s just not a lot around here, in terms of either houses or even other businesses. Maybe there are some offices nearby that keep them afloat.

Then, the whole idea of the place: Grandma’s. It says prominently on the wall that this is a ‘concept’ (not a restaurant?). It’s the idea of global grandmas who have inspired the food (seems Israeli or Middle Eastern inspired though all the staff are young Asians). But I find it a mismatch that it’s a big warehouse space, not cosy like Grandma’s house too, unless your grandma lived in an industrial warehouse.

Still, the food was absolutely fine. I can never go past a meat pastry and this one was delicious. Then we split a Shakshouka, that they do in many flavours: we got the Italian one with bolognaise. It was tasty and piping hot. The flatbread was weirdly solid, not a light variety, but it seemed that way on purpose. Drop by on your way to Bunnings?

    Just came across your blog more for the food reviews. I really enjoyed the tongue in cheek humour injected into each of the instalments I’ve read so far and will be checking in regularly. Great work! 😊
