About Me

Food is one of my many joys in life. It is a common bond I share among my friends and family. Combining food and travel makes it all the more interesting. I enjoy going out for a good meal with friends and family. The array of various cuisines and our fantastic array of produce really makes Sydney such a great city to live in. Blogging is my hobby and my posts on restaurant meals I have had are paid for and not gratis. Any gratis provided to me will always be stated beforehand.

West Juliett (Marrickville, Sydney)

When I read about new and upcoming cafes in the inner west, I am reminded time and time again of how many places I need to check out. There is a part of me that knows I am constantly trying to catch up but not very successful at it though! :(

Even though West Juliett has been open for over a year, I have yet to try it out until now. It was a Saturday and lunch time. My friends and I agreed to meet at around noon but fortunately for me they arrived earlier and put their name down for a table. By the time I got there, lo and behold they were already seated. Now I call this sheer good luck as there were many people hanging around waiting for a table.

After poring over the menu, I took a look inside the cafe and realised how very popular this place was. It was absolutely buzzing and packed with people!

Salad of Lamb shoulder, ripe tomatoes, freekeh, basil, tahini yoghurt, and chilli oil. It looked so fresh and the lamb was tender and delicious.

Grass fed burger, lettuce, cheddar, Dijon, tomato, pickles, mayo and relish. Impressive way to serve a burger, a knife stabbed in the middle of the burger is one way to attract attention! It was a very good burger, the meat patty was nice and pink and juicily tender. And the bun was soft and pillowy.

JM had the burger too but he had a bacon added to the burger and he loved every bite of it!

We also shared a bowl of hand cut royal blue chips with crisp herbs served with chilli aioli. Firstly, the royal blue potatoes are one of my favourite potatoes and these were nicely roasted. It was lovely with the chilli aioli.

I made sure we saved a bit of space in our tummies for sweets. How could I not have the Pink salt chocolate chip cookie? It was so freakin' good! I generally like chewy cookies and this one was of the chewy kind. Yum to the max!

CM had the salted peanut butter shortbread. It was so 'short' and filled with bits of peanuts. Really delicious!

And the coffee was pretty good too. My cold beverage of choice was the freshly pressed juice of Watermelon, pineapple and lemon juice. It was fresh, with a touch of tang.

I can see why this cafe is so popular, not only do they have great food but the cakes and cookies are very, very tempting and so delicious!

Love how the pink salt choc chip cookie has become such a signature item here!

Mmm love their cookies! Have to try their chips next time :)

Cindy said...

Hi Helen, I think they should retail their cookies outside the boundaries of their cafe. It would be a success!

Cindy said...

Hi Felicia, thanks for visiting! It is a great cafe! :)
