Moving to Sydney has influenced me to become a bit creative with how I eat and enjoy my food. This place is a foodie's haven as this city is composed of different cultures from all over the world. Everywhere you go, you'll see cafes and restaurants specializing in a cuisine of your liking.
It was not intentional but I've been having some interesting meals depending on whom I eat with or what the occasion is. I sometimes have Pastry Lunches and Pub Grub Lunches with workmates. Last year, I gifted the Husband with a Pastry Brekky for his birthday. When my Mum was here, I introduced her to a Dessert Dinner.
My latest favourite lunch adventure is having Pastry Lunch with my workmate. She's a foodie like me and we enjoy having foodie conversations all the time.
We're lucky that our workplace is surrounded by several cafes and restaurants--and good ones at that. One day, we decided to have a Pastry Lunch at Cafe Bariloche which is known for their best-tasting Meat Pies and Empanadas.
Cafe Bariloche is a pastry shop in Glebe and they only sell nothing but savoury and sweet pastries, plus coffee. I like the exclusivity that "just pastries" entail, there's something sacred about that. Their shop is small but regulars like us always get a table.
Everytime I eat there, I always get a savioury pastry for my main meal and a sweet pastry for my dessert partnered with a hot cup of coffee.
Their bestseller is their huge Empanada and it is what I always order for my main meal.
The pastry baked to perfection, the innards of minced beef is always juicy and mildly spicy. What makes it more of a winner is that it has boiled eggs and olives. Really yummy!
For dessert, I love their Custard Pie. It's creamy, smooth and at the same time, I taste a tinge of lemon. It's refreshingly sweet but not cloying.
Yesterday, we went out to have Pastry Lunch again but they've ran out of the Custard Pie (*gasp* *sad face*)
I chose to have the Apple Danish instead and it turned out to be a blessing in disguise. Their Apple Danish is exceptionally beautiful as it was abundant with apples.
Cafe Bariloche also makes the best meat pies in Sydney and a few other sweet pastries. If you're in Glebe, drop by for a cup of coffee or buy some treats for take-away.
