I’ve walked past the Silly Tart Kitchen several times but I’ve never been in. You may recognize the gorgeous artwork from outside their Kellett St door.
Someone in my Facebook Group “The Darlo Darlings” recently asked the group where is a good place to Bottomless Brunch? Having a love of bottomless brunches myself I eagerly awaited their responses and one of the places mentioned was The Silly Tart Kitchen. I started researching bottomless brunches (for you dear reader of course!) Apparently I didn’t research too well because when I looked on the Silly Tart Kitchens website I couldn’t find a mention of it. I’m obviously blind as I have since located the details under “our story” I contacted them via Instagram and they invited me in to try their brunch. My partner is crime for the brunch was my dear friend Ashley who is known for being notoriously early. I begged her not to be an hour early (as per usual) but she still arrived 15 minutes early (a record seriously!) and was already slogging down a delicious cocktail when I arrived at 12.02pm having walked from Surry Hills in a bid to pre walk off the bottomless brunch.
The brunch is either off the menu, which looks fantastic (I do have to go back for those Salt and Vinegar potato scallops!) or for $ 35.00 you can have the Feed Me menu which is a Chef’s selection of fresh, seasonal dishes. Loving a good tasting menu we went with option number 2 and for an additional $ 30.00 you could have bottomless Bloody Marys or Mimosas NB: They are a bit flexible and if you opt to start with a Bloody Mary and move on to Mimosas they are quite happy to accommodate your request. I’m not a fan of Bloody Marys but Nina bought me a shot of one to try, which was surprisingly delicious! Not sure if I could drink a whole one but Ashley more than managed.
We started off with something off the dinner menu. Black pumpkin hummus, peanut dukkah and flatbread. This is a dish that needs to be tasted to be believed. The delicious flavours and textures were divine and there was just the right amount of bread for the dish (I hate it when you run out!) It’s not something I would have ordered but I’m so glad I got to try it.
Next up was the corn fritter puffs, with house made bacon, fennel roasted tomato, pickled carrots and carrot top pesto. The Silly Tart Kitchen actually cure their own bacon and I am not afraid to say it is some of the best bacon I have ever tasted! Light, thin and crispy. I think I would be happy with just a bowl of bacon and some bread! (maybe next time? 🙂 This was followed by the free range quacker duck hash. Fried gooey egg, green chilli, burnt lemon and lime. Duck? Hash? No words – it is super good. Duck is one of my favorite meats closely followed by pork (which obviously includes bacon!)
Top that off with a desert of white chocolate and pomegranate cake and we were done like the proverbial dinner (or in this case bottomless brunch). We did manage to squeeze in 1 more beverage for the road. Garden Grown Gin served with lavender infused tonic and a SA botrytis wine. What a great way to end a fabulous meal.
