Wilbur’s Place, Potts Point
I have wanted to try this place for a while now. The team behind Bourke Street Bakery has a new spin-off, Wilbur’s Place in Potts Point. It’s a small eatery, twenty or so seats, its friendly, and focuses on quality seasonal food. You can dine-in or take away and on this glorious Friday, we decided to dine-in. Unfortunately they don’t take reservations, so come before peak hour and you are bound to get a table.
I was catching up with the lovely D, Wilbur’s place is tucked away in the busy Llankelly place, where room 10 and LL wine and Dine are also situated. They serve all day breakfast, which is a bonus my stomach could not go past past the suckling pig roll with pickles and dill mayo ($10).
OH MY GOD! Undoubtedly one of the best suckling pig roll I have had. The pork was incredibly tender, the pickles and dill mayo a perfect combination. My only gripe would be that there weren’t enough crackle but the pork…. OMG! It was so good that I don’t think I even stopped to put it down. I just ate and ate and ate! Sorry D! I was way too engrossed in my pork roll. Pity this is not walking distance as I would happily eat this every day!
D on the other hand, opt for the suckling pig plate with white beans and cabbage salad ($14) which was served with sourdough. The cabbage salad and beans looked lovely, the suckling pig also looked tender and delicious. D said it was pretty good for what it is. I think my suckling pig roll wins hands down! Oh my…
Dinner menu changes from time to time, the menu displayed on the website looks pretty good and I am definitely keen to try but how can I resist a suckling pork roll?
Didn’t have the coffee, but D said it was good. Can’t wait to start drinking coffee again.
I was tempted to have the toasted brioche ice cream sandwich with caramel but was in a suckling pig coma and could not fit anything else. In the meantime, if you are in the area, go grab yourself a suckling pig roll – you won’t be disappointed. Not open on Mondays but no doubt I will be back sometimes this week!
