A short break from my USA travels – perhaps it’s nice to post about something accessible here in Sydney (haha). It’s always good to change things up a little anyways. A sunny Sunday afternoon brings us to Reuben Hills in Surry Hills. It’s a real shame that I don’t get to go out to Surry Hills more often. I know there is so much on offer and my to go list is as long as ever right now.
I love the industrial look inside Reuben Hills – something you would not expect from the outside.
Reuben Hills even have their own range of coffee – impressive.
So, what to eat?
How cute is this? Reuseable glass bottles. And I felt like a camper drinking water out of this tin cup. Awesome concept!
Salted Caramel Shake $7.50
Oh my word, is the only way I know how to describe this amazing drink. It blew us away and we particularly loved the fact there were bits of salted caramel floating around. It wasn’t as sickenly sweet as I thought it would be; it had the perfect balance. It almost felt like I was drinking a liquid form of a salted caramel macaron filling. Oh yeah.
Pork Baleada $13
A large flour tortilla is topped with flavoursome pulled pork, black beans, cheese and chimol (salsa). It definitely gave off that Latin American vibe, and had all the flavour with it. Although Biggie and I didn’t have any mexican food in the USA, it sure felt like we were there.
The NOT Reuben $16
This sandwich is filled with wagyu salt brisket, pickled slaw, melted manchego and horse radish cream. You can clearly see the layering of everything! And boy let me tell you that this sandwich rocked our world. The brisket is incredibly tender and literally fell apart (none of that tough chewy business). All the other additions in the sandwich gave the perfect balance to a perfect sandwich. I’m usually not the biggest fan of horse radish cream but it paired so well with everything that it didn’t even bother me!
Doggs Breakfast $9
Doggs Breakfast? Nope, far from it – it’s an ice cream sandwich with a huge dollop of salted caramel. It was a great way to end somewhat of a small feed (we still have our huge appetites from the USA where everything was served large haha). Love the industrial/rustic spoons that came out with it.
Biggie and I would love to come back to try more from the menu. It vaguely reminds me of some of the feeds I had in the USA but not quite. There’s still a long way to come….
