Brunch at COWBELL 808, Surry Hills

Tuesday, October 6, 2015

Last Saturday I had the chance to visit Cowbell 808 in Surry Hills with my friend, +Ashley Lu 

It is 10 minutes walk from Central Station and a few hundred metres away from the famous Bourke Street Bakery. 

The Atmosphere

It was really quiet considering how busy other places are on the weekend, which I LIKE! :) 

The service was excellent, we quickly got seated and attended to. 

The menu

I honestly like the menu. It has a wide variety of selections that you can choose from. I like the all-day breakfast menu, so I don't have to wake up early to grab brunch. 

Drink menu...

They also have a $12 special menu on the board next to the kitchen.

The Food

Ashley ordered The Vegetarian baked eggs (spinach, eggplant, braised tomato, eggs, eggplant and chickpeas served with flat bread). I had a bite and it was really good, I could definitely taste the tomatoes in it. Not a big fan of the eggplant though!

I was actually torn between the pancakes or the corn fritters. I was a bit worried about the bacon vanilla ice cream that would come with the pancake, so I decided to try that next time.

I got one of their special, corn-fritters with bacon and poached egg on a bed of rocket and parmesan. I honestly didn't realize there were parmesan in it until I saw it on the menu lol... Where should I begin? The corn-fritters is so crispy and delicious. I have not much to say about the bacon and egg, but when you put all of them together in your mouth, oh damn! It was so delicious.
I love the sweet chili sauce which adds flavour to the dish.

As for the drinks, I got an orange juice and Ashley ordered an immunity juice. 

Immunity juice is made of orange, apple, carrot and ginger and in my opinion the ginger was strong. Nevertheless, both juices were very sweet and fresh.

And that is happy Ashley, loving her meal :) We will probably come back in another time to try the other stuff!

I would definetly give 'Cowbell 808' an 8 out of 10 :)
