The bellies are calling out for sustenance, they don't care that it is Anzac Day & that it is raining. Buggles and Squeak must heed the call.
We're not sure what will be open today or what we feel like eating, but decide that heading to Potts Point is probably a safe bet.
As we drive down Macleay Street we notice a rare parking spot right outside Zinc....decision made!
The cafe is really busy, but thankfully we manage to grab a table inside. The space is large with lots of seating inside & out.
The menu looks very promising and includes: Muesli Poached Peach or Rhubarb w/ Yoghurt, Corned Beef Hash with Fried Egg, Buttermilk Pancakes, Sausage Sandwich, Eggs n Beans, Omelette etc.
The Corned Beef Hash has my name written all over it & after her very successful Sausage Sandwich adventures at Bar Mattino, Buggles decides to give the Zinc version a go.
The Sausage Sandwich is ok, the sausages are a little bland, not as thick, meaty and flavoursome as the Bar Mattino variety. The red pepper relish does lift it a little, but on the whole Buggles is unimpressed. The side of mushroom is tasty, but $3.85 for one mushroom is a bit rich, isn't it?
The Corned Beef Hash is another story altogether. The mix of corned beef, potato, onions & peas, fried until golden & crispy is truly divine. The yolk of the perfectly fried egg, oozes into the hash with spectacular results. The serve is generous and definitely a dish worth returning for. I love it.
We wash all this down with two fairly decent coffees and a fresh OJ.
The service is brisk and relatively friendly.
If it weren't for the Corned Beef Hash, we may never return, but that one dish alone is certainly worth the trip.
