Hey, I said to my friend Davy, as we were looking for a place for a casual Sunday brunch. That amazing little Italian bar is now open for brunch. Let’s try it. But it had an Asian-themed menu, and it was only after I sat down that I realised that the cute place that we’d had a drink at one night (and meant to try the food; it looked good) has turned into an Asian cafe.
I had an omelette with coconut milk, and some bean sprouts and bacon… A subtle Asian influence. Tasty. I think it was only $13 or $14; the prices here seem a few dollars cheaper than most Surry Hills cafes. My pal had Grandma’s chicken, which was basically a tasty ginger-stir-fried chicken with rice.
So, casual and tasty; with enthusiastic service. They’ve not been open long and are hoping for business, I could tell. Lots of competition in the area though, so hopefully their Asian fusion approach will attract enough customers to keep them afloat. My rating is closer to a three, but I’ll give four stars as encouragement for a new restaurant.
