The gluten-free brownie was a dense chocolate sticky block; very rich despite its described “healthier” gluten-free persona. An absolutely ideal way to end of a brunch or treat yourself lunch.

This was part of a tasting hosted by Sideways, thank you Burpple for the invitation and Sideways for an amazing meal✨

Kombucha has become ubiquitous but kombucha mocktail was atypical for me. The kombucha is made in house at sideways and I adored the refreshing drink after a hearty meal.

This was part of a tasting kindly hosted by Sideways and courtesy of Burpple’s invitation✨

Another registering item on my “completely worthwhile messy sandwich affairs” list; the beef brisket here was tender and bursting with flavours that nicely soaked the bottom layer of the in house baked sourdough.

Thank you Burpple the invite and sideways for hosting.

I write about this Burpple invited tasting at Sideways with much deliberation; only hoping I do some justice to the thoughtfulness and tastiness of the new lunch menu and brunch item(s).

One of the bowls we tried was the vegan in house made halloumi, burrarta and hummus; along with the wood fire oven grilled greens of zucchini and mildly spicy peppers. They all sit on a bed of Cous Cous which you can easily swap for other grains (quinoa, the lovely cauliflower rice which would be my choice).

The bowls at Sideways are hearty and stellar; mainly because of how they were served with much thought and effort behind each component collectively.

A Chef (also restaurant owner and barista) creation, this was pleasantly perplexing because the impregnated baby squid with mortadella ham had zero chewy resistance you’d expect from the seafood. Might be the traditional fire brick oven that most of the dishes here are cooked in; whatever the reason these babies (literally), sitting on fresh green leaves and a shallow pool of olive oil, were a great short-lived flavour experience you’d want to try/have again.

Thank you Sideways for hosting us and Burpple for the invitation to one of the better meals I’ve had so far in 2020.

Not for the faint hearted, this tender pulled lamb open faced pita sandwich would be a dream come through for fans of the stronger tasting meat. Doused in a myriad of sauces, this was very tasty and tops the category of “completely worthwhile messy sandwich affairs”.

If you are easily distressed by lamb meat in general, don’t turn away the in house baked pita bread that can be paired with other meat fillings.

My favourite dish from the tasting had to be this poke bowl. Maybe I am biased because it contained literally all the vegetarian components I’d gladly eat on a daily basis- guacamole, in house made feta cheese (yes you read that right), finely cut and cooked cauliflower “rice”; salted, peppered and seasoned eggplants and very mildly-spicy green pepper. For proteins we have a nicely poached egg and chunks of raw barramundi seasoned with sesame oil and a gluten-free, vegan soy substitute. While the bowl might look unassuming, stir it well and you might just get yourselves one of the most memorable poke bowls you’d have just like I did.

We first started with the seasonal Charred Scallops & Smoked Broth that our host and restaurant owner Pav explained, its broth was cooked for hours and contained 2 distinct herbs. Only tastemaker Julius hit the nail on the sumac spice, and Pav added that basil was also included. To admit amateurishly, I have not known of sumac but whatever went into that broth saw the whole table mopping it clean with the light sourdough bread slices. Pav detailed that the latter was intentionally so, with a different flour used compared to usual sourdough; this rightfully leaves room for other delicious dishes on the menu.

I’d be lying through my teeth if I claimed to enjoy all the brunch and mains from walking on sunshine, for there were misses. Take the tough chicken breast and steak cuts in the chicken pizza and striploin steak main as examples; I was also not impressed by the ciabatta and baguette used in the panini sandwich and salmon, prawn salad as well. Call me picky, but I hold good, artisan bread with high regard and dislike anything less.

That said the desserts we had were sure wins, with cafe style waffles and excellent soufflé pancakes. I also particularly liked the idea of a rectangle block of savoury pancake, inspired by korean Jeon, as a brunch item. Also all the salads and vegetables served were fresh.

Nonetheless, thank you walking on sunshine for hosting and Burpple for the invite ✨ I’m sure the establishment has potential with some tweaks to its menu.
