Barmuda, Newtown

Barmuda is a tasty option when you’re up for eat­ing break­fast for lunch. The ser­vice can be a bit of a hit and miss — we waited any­where from 5 – 10 minutes to upwards of 20 minutes for our food — but the food is always tasty.

Wanting to try some­thing dif­fer­ent, I go for the Corn & Chive Fritters ($16.50, sal­mon +$3.00) with tomato rel­ish, salsa verde, roast tomato, a dol­lop of sour cream and dressed rock­et.

I’m a huge fan of corn and these corn frit­ters were fra­grant with the smell of roas­ted corn but didn’t pack the sweet fla­vour of fresh corn, although it went well with the acid­ity and fresh­ness from the tomato rel­ish and salsa verde. The rock­et was dressed in a vin­eg­ar that I’d have pre­ferred to go without, but oth­er­wise, the roast tomato was packed with fla­vour and the smoked sal­mon added pro­tein (although there was a bone left in it).

And T goes for their Planet Newtown ($18.50) with free range scrambled eggs, bacon, saus­age, bal­sam­ic and rose­mary mush­rooms, roast toma­toes and toast. He enjoys the silky smooth scrambled eggs, but over­all, pre­ferred the potato cake and baked beans in The Local over the bacon and saus­age here.

Barmuda remains a tasty option for all-day break­fast.
