Efendy, Balmain

Sydney, be ready to eat with your eyes in a very tasty way!  Voted Sydney's best breakfast by smh good food in 2014; Efendy delivers to it's reputation.  For $29 per person, be prepared to taste amazing breakfast treats the Turkish way.  I loved it! Make sure you book.

Start with the hot food which included sausages and a mix of menemen eggs with some bread.  The sausages and eggs had a nice dash of spice. Accompany this with the warm bread and enjoy the spreads.  Wow. It was amazing start off to this feast of a meal.

Baked Pide and breads
Pogaca, spinach-feta tepsi borek, simit
There are so many textures to explore. The crispy treats above (Pogaca, borek and simit) were delicious and balanced out by the fruit and cheese below; along with the many dips which accompanied the bread.

Apple tea

I loved this apple tea which seem to compliment everything in front of me.  I loved the curly haloumi below which was fun and tasty to eat.  The vegetables were lightly coated in a yoghurt like dressing.  I also devoured the cheese which was beautiful with the freshly baked bread.  The spreads were also great, giving you variety and made your taste buds dance. I really liked the peanut-butter like spread and the olive spread is always a winner for me.

The whole time, I was eating with my eyes and the handsomely good looking food matched the deliciousness in taste.  I loved this place!!!!
