Kepos Street Kitchen, Redfern
I really enjoyed my first visit to Kepos. Even though my zucchini fritters were on the salty side, I still really enjoyed it and have wanted to come back to try more of their menu.
It was a Sunday and we went after the lunch time rush, at 2pm and even then, we waited for a good 30 minutes before seated. Any longer, I would have walked away but I am glad that I did wait a bit longer as the food was absolutely fantastic!
The apple and cherry cooler strawberry rosewater fizz was absolutely refreshing.
So was the pomegranate virgin mojito – I have to say, it is my favourite drink here.
I couldn’t go past the falafel, hummus, tabouleh, mint, schiacciata bread ($16) – oh my, exceptionally tasty! The falafel were deep fried, very herby and crisp on the outside and deliciously moist inside. The tabouleh was a wonderful complement that I wanted more.
My brother really enjoyed the steak sandwich, caramelised onion jam, wilted spinach, aioli, and roasted tomatoes ($19). He said that the steak was tender and cooked to perfection.
The wagyu beef burger, pickled eggplant, walnuts, watercress, harissa ($18) was also wonderful. Tender wagyu beef, the pickled eggplant was a wonderful complement.
Once we ordered, food came out relatively quickly! It is the waiting for a table that took a while. We also got some desserts to take away, the brownies were deliciously chocolate-y and moist.
Hoping to come back one more time before we head back to try their other dishes, but the falafel were pretty darn tasty that I actually want some more!
