Hello Sunday Cafe…

Hello Sunday

We had yet another ‘chore day’ last Friday with the most boring task of buying a new mattress. Our current one has gone past its ‘use by date’ by…ummmm…a decade or more & is possibly a contributing source of numerous body aches & pains in the morning. And our usual modus operandi is to mix the good/fun with the bad/not fun so we decided to check out & possibly have lunch (if we could get in) @ Hello Sunday. We keep a list of the fun things we’d like to do & we make a concerted effort to check as many of them off our list as we can & Hello Sunday was at the top…

Sweet Decor….

And just like our good luck with The Bicycle Thief, we once again struck gold & scored a 2 top table in the main part of the cafe. A space designed & decorated very much in line with my own personal aesthetics with a wonderful use & mix of old and new…its got a good dose of class & atmosphere. Also had a bit of an extended squizzy before we ordered & made it to the very back where they have a micro-greens garden in full bloom and a very sympathetic (with the front room) back room eatery. Ah…the food order…

Backyard Green Garden…

We had not checked out the menu beforehand so it was all new to us, but it all looked great with a seriously good mix of food on offer across a nice price spread – sandwiches & salads @ $10-$12 all the way up to the Thai Fried Chicken Burger @ $24. Oh so tempting…

Hound #2 struggled with her choice but ultimately decided to give the Beef Cheek Hash (very curious to see how they do this) & Poached Eggs ($22) a whirl. I too was a bit torn but liked the sound of the Spicy Pork Belly Salad ($20) as pork belly is something I do not often cook @ home.

Beef Cheek Hash & Poached Eggs…

What a wonderful & inventive concoction this Beef Cheek Hash was – well done chef & oh so tasty…I will order this on our next visit.

Spicy Pork Belly Salad with Crispy Shallats & Bok Choy & Some Heat!

But that is not to say I was not as equally thrilled & pleased with my choice – a perfectly put together Spicy Pork Belly Salad that had just the right touch of heat & loaded with flavour. No complaints here…

So if you are bumping around Sydenham or parked up @ The Colombo, do yourself a favour and a taste treat & have lunch @ Hello Sunday. And if you are more of a dinner person then maybe it is worth the try to dine @ their new sister establishment – 5th Street, which is just around the corner. It’s going on our fun-things-to-do list….
