Booth St Bistro, Annandale

It has been a very long time since I had dinner at 127 Booth Street. From memory, ‘The Mother’ and I had our first date here but it wasn’t Booth St Bistro, but hree Clicks West. It’s been a few years now since we have lived in Annanadale, we have brunch often as most of our friends are still there, and when I heard about Booth St Bistro, I couldn’t wait to check it out.

Owned and managed by husband and wife team Wayne and Teresa Borgese-Coom. Wayne started his apprenticeship in New Zealand working at Cin Cin on Quay, GPK, Orbit Restaurant and Warakie Resort. In 2000, he relocated to Sydney and worked in Bayswater Brasserie, Level 41 and Specc in Clovely before he finally open his own restaurant.

I was catching up with two of my dearest and oldest high school friends, the doc and the accountant for brunch and I suggested this place. Booth St Bistro is open on weekend for brunch but open for dinner from Tuesday to Sunday from 6pm. The menu for dinner looks fantastic, Chef Wayne uses the freshest and finest Australian produce and menu is inspired by modern European cuisine.

Three hungry diners, we all had our own dish and the doc wanted to share the pancakes which we all couldn’t say no! Started with cappuccino – strong, aromatic and went down too quickly and nicely.

The accountant and I both opt for the cornfritters. A choice of bacon or avocado with poached egg, tomato capsicum chutney ($14.50). I didn’t want egg, so asked if I could have both bacon and avocado which was ‘sandwiched’ between two delicious think cornfritter topped with tomato capsicum chutney. DELISH!

The accountant had the bacon and egg, and the egg oozed with yolk and we can both safely say that it was fantastic and one of the nicest cornfritters I have had in a while.

The doct opted for eggs benedict ($14.50). Two oozy poached eggs which sat on a generous serving of house cured regal salmon, wilted spinach and toasted bread with generous hollandaise sauce. YUM!

For dessert, we shared the buttermilk pancakes with whipped honeycomb butter and strawberries. Three perfectly round pancakes, which were fluffy and airy and absolutely wonderful. The whipped honeycomb butter is to die for and a wonderful complement. I was stuffed, it was rich, filling and fringing awesome!

Deliciously full, we sat, chatted, and keen to try their dinner menu one evening. Everything on the menu just sounds fantastic – we will return!

Service friendly and welcoming, the place was busy when we arrived, but we didn’t have to wait long for a table. Can’t wait to go back.

    You certainly started it right with cappuccino and I think no one with ever go wrong with having cornfritters! They’re my fave. But I want to try that poached egg, though. While the pancakes look fantastic but isn’t it a little heavy for a dessert? Oh well, who cares? Food like that, I don’t mind eating it all day!
