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.
Barmuda is located at 283 Australia St, Newtown NSW 2042.
