A free Saturday calls me rounding up some of my girls for a much needed catch up. Being the undecisive bunch of ladies we are, I go ahead and suggest a couple places. A trek to Surry Hills is always on the cards, but it’s just a matter of where. Decisions, decisions. And the winner is Orto Trading Co.!
Matt Moran and Peter Sullivan have come together to create this absolutely wonderful restaurant and bar in the Chiswick Gardens in Woollahra. It is a casual yet contemporary place where one can enjoy the food made from fresh and seasonal produce, and/or to have a quick drink at the local bar.
Having made a reservation well over 8 months ago, I could not believe that the time had finally come. It felt so ridiculous that I had to book almost a year ahead but I am so glad and thankful that I did. It was finally time to celebrate the 24th birthday :)
After hearing so much about Cafe Ish, it was time I make a trip there myself. I did in fact get the chance to visit during good food month, so there were some Crave Sydney (Sydney International Food Festival) specials. It was a hot Sunday morning and the perfect opportunity for us to grab some brunch.
I opted for the Bush Brekkie Special that was available at the time. There was an option between the Soft Shell Crab Omelette or Emu Eggs, served with a small breakfast Trifle and a Wattle Maccachino for $25 (weekends only).
