Out and about eating in Sydney at Cuckoo Callay, Newtown.
There are many times when I’m looking for that perfect little inner city spot when out and about.
I’d certainly stumbled across Cuckoo Callay before, on my way back and forth to Newtown Station. Most recently though, I stopped to sample some of their sit down menu items and made a rather delicious meal of it.
Think of rushing two and fro on a busy day and then picture yourself moments later, with an Old fashioned lemonade with a touch of orange blossom or a Fresh juice with ice and mint in everyone’s favourite, the Mason jar.
Think hip happening and healthy to boot.
One of the things that stands out, aside from the personable service, is naturally the food and secondly the creative & quirky thought in the names for each dish.
From the new take on a breakfast item, Bubbles that Squeak, a bubble & squeak pattie, with some smoky duck sausage, house made chilli chutney & a poached egg.
The hearty chunks of cauliflower in the patty, made this dish for me. Alongside the not too spicy chutney. Beautifully pan fried veggie patties & a delicious meaty sausage.
My dining companion chose Beeting the Sheep described as a Slow cooked lamb filling, in pastry with goats curd. Pinenuts, pickled beetroot, with Radish & snow pea tendrils salad.
Perfect little cigars arrive of crispy caramelised shards of pastry, with meltingly soft lamb. A delicious little compote of beetroot and a fresh salad. Another sure fire winner.
For your veggie friendly friend, the Snowman in Summer is their go to dish. Marinated Dutch carrot salad, with blanched Kale, avocado, toasted pepitas, lemon yogurt dressing
Arriving on a plate, piled high with healthy yummy goodness, were some juicy caramelised carrots with kale, roasted pepitas & a tangy zing of lemon.
Don’t forget there’s always room for a Chai latte & dessert in my book.
Especially this tasty Chocolate praline tart, (bonus it’s gluten free!) Silky, soft and smooth, we shared it…though I was good and couldn’t finish every single bite, even though I dearly wanted too!
There’s something for everyone here. Whether you’re health conscious & want a medley of perfect roasted veg, (think snowman in summer.)
Or a happy meat fiend, looking for a delicious meaty offering. Or into your rosti style patties like the Bubbles that Squeak.
I’ve been told by my dining companion that there’s even a few canine pals who’ve been made insta-famous. With the very hip Puppacino on offer for your furry pal and a selection of maple bacon esque treats too!
See, there truly is something for everyone!
