Review - Brown Sugar *UPDATED*

Does My Bomb Look Big In This?

Alex Harmon also visited another of my Bondi favourites, Brown Sugar. Here's what she thought...



Breakfast at Brown Sugar is more hyped than Breakfast at Tiffany's. So, ignoring the ‘Best Breakfast in the East’ award bestowed by Sydney diners, and numerous poached egg recommendations from friends, I discovered that this cafe actually shines at night. Seared Local Scallops ($17) with parsnip puree, hazelnuts, pear and saffron chutney are a silky delight, perfectly designed and presented.

Yellow Fin Tuna Tataki ($17), similarly plated like a work of art, is served with crispy apple, avocado and coriander salad. It’s not just seafood; they do a superb Crispy Pork Belly ($32) with carrot puree and black lentils. Sheltered in mustard cress and surrounded by walnuts, it looks like a wood cabin, making it something to be marveled at. And yes, it tastes as good too.

The Twice-Baked Gruyere Soufflé ($17) looks stunning on the plate but is let down by over-saltiness, heightened by the cured ham up top. However the Slow Roasted Hapuka ($32) gets all of its elements to balance, the carrot and chickpeas with perfect Moroccan flavours and a mild New Zealand fish.

Save room for the Pumpkin Pie ($14), it’s warm, tempting and comes with salted peanut ice cream, making it the bling in an already glimmering crown.
