Lunch at Bar H, Surry Hills

Last time I went to Bar H, it was for breakfast. It was such a long time ago that they have changed the menu and my lovely roasted rhubarb, strawberry and mint salad is no longer on the menu!

I was meeting the gorgeous B for lunch and I suggested this place. It was a warm day and we sat by the window people watching. One of the many things I love to do… people watching whilst sipping coffee!

I couldn’t go pass the jamon serrano el conquistadores served with dried figs, almonds and parsley ($18). I love the combination of figs and proscuitto. The figs were fresh and deliciously sweet. The proscuitto was cut thinly, melted in my mouth and ‘drizzled’ with olive oil, it was wonderful. It was a refreshingly light salad which I needed on the day.

B on the other hand wanted something more simple. She opted for the shaved kurobuta ham, heirloom tomato and machego sandwich on sonoma miche ($12). She didn’t have any of the cheese unfortunately as she is on a non-dairy diet! The ham was excellent! It was tender to the point of melting in your mouth, sweet, and a tad fatty. You can’t really see from the photo below but the generous ham is sitting on a mountain of heirloom tomatoes. I have to say, even without the cheese it was pretty tasty.

I love the coffee here, its stong, smooth and aromatic. Unfortunately they only have one size, small and one is never enough!

I have heard great reviews about their caremlised pork, fennel and mint sandwich – will have to try that next time! Yes.. more pork! YUM!
