Review - Basket Brothers


Alex Harmon started off this week with a great quality breakfast (or two)...



In an old skydiving shop, two buddies with impressive restaurant CVs have opened a café that will hopefully be a renaissance for the desolate fringes of Surry Hills and the CBD.



Serving up cleverly devised breakfast options like the Smoked Brisket Hash ($18) with egg, aioli, beautifully sweet beef brisket and (a standout) jalapeño salsa, the ‘bros’ Jono Forsythe (founder of Mad Pizza e Bar) and Deepak Singh (formerly of Kantine) know how to lure you into the fish tank-like café.



Housemade Beans ($17)
with pork belly and ham hock show they can do simple food with flair, turning 'share house staples' into, dare I say it: elegant dishes.



Likewise the Hot Tuna Salad ($15) with quinoa, olives and a perfectly soft-boiled egg, prove these guys are restaurateur class.



With Allpress roasting the beans for their Coffee ($3.50) we're not surprised when Jono tells us the nearby Australian Federal Police have become regulars, as have guests at the hotel upstairs seeking a quality breakfast.



At lunch you can't go wrong with a Brother Burger ($15) - two patties of ground chuck beef, the classic Aussie fillings and shoestring fries.



With a liquor license and plans to dish up beers and burgers of an evening, prepare for these golf buddies to knock it out of the park.
