Review - Mrs Sippy

Does My Bomb Look Big In This?

Alex Harmon takes in another night of al fresco dining before we're all locked away for winter...


It’s the original small bar in town, and unlike its inner-city counterparts, this one isn’t hidden away. Mrs Sippy spills out into Bay Street for ample opportunity of being seen. Très Double Bay.


Aptly, we commence with cocktails; mine combining watermelon, mint, vodka, pinot noir and my favourite fairytale – the Red Riding Hood ($18) is big and bad (in the best possible way).


The menu is made up of entrées, mains and share plates, although I’d recommend sharing everything - especially the Chicken Liver Parfait ($18)...


...a kind of fluffy pâté that goes superbly with apricot chutney and crisp sourdough.


Seared Scallops ($21) could be harder to share because they’re so good, bouncy and fresh with spiced cauliflower and almonds.


Marinated Tuna ($24) is pretty but a little flavourless – lashings of horseradish and beetroot help.


It’s guilt-free, but if you’re feeling bad, the Wagyu Beef Pizza ($25) hits the mark with a buttery garlic sauce and red cabbage for crunch and colour.


And to really indulge, go the Dark Chocolate Pot ($16) with peanut brittle ice-cream and honeycomb. I tried sharing this but didn’t get much of a look-in. I couldn’t help but say to my date: “My, my what a big mouth you have.
