Does My Bomb Look Big In This?

Review - The Hill Eatery

This week I am scratching my head trying to work out why Alex Harmon passed up a breakfast cocktail...

Breakfast at The Hill is quite a stimulating experience. With plant life draping the walls, brown leather sofas, and repurposed wood benches, there’s a bit of the ‘Little Barbershop of Horrors’ in the air - without the horrors, of course.

When it comes to the food, it’s all about honesty. The owners believe in the farm-to-table philosophy and source all their produce ethically.

Although tempted by their breakfast cocktails, a bunch of joggers arrive and order the Green Juice ($6.50), so I jump on the bandwagon. With apple, mint, cucumber and citrus, I felt healthier just looking at it.

Muffins are baked fresh daily and we were treated to Date, Banana and Chocolate ($4.50) straight out of the oven - pretty much heaven.

Mexican Baked Eggs ($18.50) start the day off in good stead; that’s if you can finish it - it’s mountainous, with large envelopes of tortillas.

Love Eggs ($16.50) gets it just right with field mushrooms, a fan of avocado, ricotta and poached eggs on sourdough.

The Hill is also a bar of an evening, with a strong local following. With events such as wine tasting, function catering, and décor worthy of a cult-film set, they’re certainly making a mountain out of this North Bondi hill.

This Week's Food News: Crab Carnival

Last week I was treated to a sneak preview of The Morrison Bar & Oyster Room’s inaugural Crab Carnival open to the public from the 1st-13th April. They’ve planned a wonderful selection of events including hermit crab racing, crab eating competitions and a five-buck crab taco Happy Hour every day of the fortnight between 6pm and 7pm.

While I was treated to Cajun spiced soft shell crab, chilli crab and Craberol cocktails featuring Belvedere Pure and Aperol shaken with fresh juices and Peychard, the full menu includes even more crabby delights from crab toast to snow crab linguine.
