Freda’s Chippendale

There seems to be a lot of warehouse type restaurant opening up in Sydney, and Freda’s is one of them. Found on the busy street of Regent Street, near Cleveland Street. I was told to ‘look out for a giant red tongue of the PR agency nearby’, an alley way which will lead you to Freda’s.

Opened by Simon Cancio (ex Sean’s Panorama, Onde, Luxe and Bourke Street Bakery), ibrahim Kasif (ex Fish Face) and Marty Campaign. The three has opened this wonderful establishment – it’s very spacious, very cool and very NYC like.

I was catching up with the wonderful S, this was prior to me giving birth, a couple of days to be exact! We walked from Central Station – it wasn’t a long walk, probably about 10 – 15 minutes.┬áMenu is written on the board, and food can vary daily. For dinner, there’s salads, some sort of protein and desserts.

We started with the pickled eggplants – thinly sliced, they were extremely sour but extremely good. It was incredibly tender and had the right amount of tang!

We were also given complimentary bread which was perfect to dip into the tangy sauce of the pickled eggplants.

I couldn’t go past the beef tongue – it was a generously large serving, more like a VERY large tongue which was served with salsa verde, onions and pickles. The salsa verde was a wonderful complement, I loved the pickles and the beef tongue was incredibly tender it just melted in my mouth. It was seriously tasty!

Now what we both wanted – the suckling pork was uber tender that again it fell apart. I was a little disappointed about the crackle though, I was hoping that it would be crunchier but no, it was quite soggy. The meat itself was wonderful, pity about the lack of crackle!

Unfortunately we were both way too full for dessert, they had chocolate cake but we really couldn’t fit anything else. I am keen to try their lunch though, their lunch sounds wonderful – pork, pickle and salsa verde, or even the duck, arugula, beetroot relish, or even meatballs and reggiano – YUM!!!!!

Definitely a cool hangout place, even if its just for drinks! Will be back to try their lunch menu.
