[invite] Bianca: Where’s Wolli has been charming the locals for almost 3 months now, tucked away at the bottom of an apartment complex, they’re a quick 5-minute drive from Sydney Airport, perfect for any future pick-ups/drop-offs. Something I’ve already made mental note of.
Joining me on my food excursion was Instagram husband @philxiaaaaa – discussing all things shoes, books and strippers… go figure! The space is fairly interesting, an open kitchen lets you peer in on the chefs, there’s ample outdoor seating for those glorious sunny days.
Some feedback on the menu, we did find it a little lacking. Quite a lot of repetitive breakfast dishes and the lunch menu really lacking some punch.
My Greek Frappe $7 was on the milky side and Phil found his Berry Nice Smoothie $8 had a strong prominent greek yoghurt flavour, perhaps just a touch of refinement here.
We started with the B.E.B – fried egg, crispy bacon, rocket, tomato chutney, aioli on a milk bun $11 + Hash brown $2. Your standard B&E roll elevated by that tomato chutney & aioli, we were big fans of the soft, squishy milk bun. Definitely add the hash brown, adding a whole other crispy element.
Beetroot Hummus -w/ sliced avo, black sesame $15 needed some zhooshing up, I did request rye but was brought sourdough. The flavour was pleasant but I wouldn’t find this particularly satisfying for $15, a poached egg to fill this out would have made the difference and the yolk would have added a creamy element. The rocket was a little random.
I was surprised by how much I enjoyed the Wolli Beef Burger -w/ lettuce, tomato, American cheese, truffle aioli, milk bun w/ fries $16. I particularly enjoyed the mixed spices and diced onions in the beef patty, it was quite tender and had a soft bite. Perfect ratio’s of ingredients, we really liked the truffle aioli.
And lastly, sadness the waffle machine was broken, so for our sweet fix. The Choc Tart -w/ poached pear, mascarpone & dehydrated raspberries $11. Crumbly shortcrust pastry, encasing a rich dark chocolate filling. This was right up my alley. Loved the use of the sharp, tart raspberry coulis/ syrup. One for the chocolate fans that’s for sure!
Where’s Wolli are still finding their groove and with a young team the possibilities are endless.
