On Good Friday pop into Reuben Hills

It’s Good Friday, almost everyone has escaped the city of Sydney and the streets of Surry Hills are eery and quiet. Where are the locals who have chosen to stay back and claim this suburb as their own. Well it appears everyone is trying to squeeze into Reuben Hills on Albion Street. This hipster cafe with a contemporary space and extremely cool staff is buzzing today. The aromas from the open kitchen drag you in and take over your senses.


The menu is inspired by Central American foods, like baleado, tostadas and chillaquiles. The aromas from the kitchen also provide a hint that the spices here are not your common ingredients. Instead you sense someone here did travel to places like Mexico, Panama or even Costa Rica.

I am happy to know that in Sydney we are eager to explore and not afraid to move away from our neighbourly love of asian or european spices. Ingredients are global and a means to try the world. Just like Columbus did when he sailed back with the humble tomato that the Italians and Spanish now almost claim as their own. On this occasion we go for the soft baked ranchero eggs and the epasote poached pear that comes with yogurt, almond piquin crumb and grapes. I think both dishes were a joy and a great kick for the easter break.
