Bite-sized Summary: Excellent value for money and perfect for those indecisive folk who just can’t choose between pancakes and poached eggs. Its a next level (three, to be exact) platter, filled with absolutely everything near and dear to a breakfast lover’s heart. Nothing particularly innovative, just good honest breakfast classics, perfect for families and groups ready for a collective food coma.
Picture a hotel buffet breakfast; freshly cooked eggs as you like them, rows of sizzling bacon, sausages, delicate pastries and bread, a chef flipping pancakes and perfect slices of tropical fruits. In a far more ordinary, yet equally as exciting setting, this is what breakfast at Bare Grill on Bourke reminded me of.
‘The Hibernator’ for 3
Like your very own private breakfast buffet, ‘The Hibernator’ at Bare Grill on Bourke is a feast for the eyes, stomach and soul. For $25 per person, you’ll receive a three-tiered platter brimming with all the classic sweet and savoury options your brunch-loving heart could want.
Special mention goes to Bare Grill’s classic eggs benny. There are so many unique and inventive options on the Sydney breakfast scene that it had been such a long time since I had sat down to a classic benedict. This one was exceptional, with perfectly seasoned sautéed spinach, crispy bacon, a poached egg and delicious, creamy hollandaise. A real highlight for me.
A heap of crispy bacon, scrambled eggs on toast, fried eggs on toast, golden, crispy hash browns, smoked salmon, roast tomatoes, grilled halloumi cheese, mushrooms, baked beans, avocado and chorizo… and we’re not done yet!
After stuffing yourself with all the savoury breakfast you can handle, its time to engage the second stomach for something sweet. The mug filled with bircher muesli and a rainbow assortment of fruits is a refreshing, welcome addition to the platter. As is the french toast and fluffy pancakes with whipped cream, vanilla ice cream, fresh banana and blueberries.
Considering the sometimes exorbitant price of brunch dishes in Sydney, $25 per person for a 3-storey breakfast platter is excellent value. Far from a gimmick, however, the tower is loaded with high quality, honest food, which is delicious, well seasoned and generous. BYO friends and stretchy pants.
