Bourke Street Bakery, Surry Hills

26 April 2013, 00:20


Ahhh my precious… Just look at that beauty! Doesn’t it make you want to lick the screen? It is the one and only Ginger Brulee Tart ($5) from where else?


Bourke Street Bakery (633 Bourke St, Surry Hills) of course! Land of delicious baked goods! It’s dangerously close to work and with everything under $12 but averaging around the $5 mark makes this bakery a hot spot with the office workers and ahem hipsters :P Beware the queues if you come too late though!


Lunchies! Every now and then some humans will join me in the partaking of sausage roll awesomeness. There’s a couple of tables outside or head across the street to the park and enjoy the last of the sunshine my friends!


The Pork and Fennel Sausage Roll ($4.50) gets the trophy for BEST SAUSAGE ROLL EVERRRR!!! A log of minced pork with a scattering of fennel seeds is lovingly cocooned inside incredibly flaky pastry which WILL shower you with pastry flakes everywhere no matter how carefully you try to eat it!


The Beef Brisket Pie ($5.30) is also pretty awesome, more of that glorious pastry holding chunks of tender and damn tasty beef bathed in a rich gravy.


The Vego in the group orders the Baba Ganoush, Cucumber, Parsley, Lemon and Fetta Sandwich ($9) and smashes it in record time.


And then there’s the Mushroom, Spinach and Fetta Quiche ($4.50) which is a bit on the small side but packs a punch of tastiness.


But wait, how can you visit BSB without scoring some desserts!?


LOOK AT HOW IT GLISTENS. Seriously guys, the brulee tarts are out of this world! I’ve had the strawberry tarts previously but the ginger tarts are by far the most delicious with creamy custardy innards, caramelised sweet ginger layer and a crisp buttery tart shell. Bloody awesome.


The Lemon tarts ($4.50) are also top notch with a ridiculously addictive sour lemon curd filling.


Definitely want to try more of BSB’s menu but I just can’t ever go past that sausage roll…

  2. Aahh the good ol’ BSB and it’s mighty ginger brulee tart. The Marrickville outlet stopped doing it for a while but pressure from the public made them change their mind. I could do with 2 now!

  4. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a creme brulee that looked so thoroughly bruleed, in a good way. I miss them having an outlet on george though. =(

  5. The ginger brulee is a tart of awesomness!!

  6. My standard order here is never to be tampered with – pork & fennel sausage roll & a sweet tart, depending on what’s available. If brûlée is there, that’s the go, otherwise I am quite partial to the raspberry, chocolate & marshmallow one too!

  7. I love BSB! My fav has got to be the passionfruit meringue but it always seems to get sold out! =(

  23. Omgoodness, I made sure I paid the bakery a visit when I went to Sydney this year!! Let’s just say I spent A LOT! Beef brisket pie is awesome but my fav item is definitely the ginger brulee tart. Oh and not to mention the croissants! Damn..if only there was super-express shipping to Perth =P haha.

  24. Ahhh that ginger brulee tart, still have to go back for that one. And for that sausage roll. And for that pie.
    Geez.

  26. Yayyy!! I’m very happy for you that you’ve gotten the chance to visit this beautiful place, I love this place oh so much – and you’re right, that ginger brulee tart is damnnn sexy, and it’s one of the only forms using ginger in dessert that I would come back to eat time and time again! Everytime I visit BSB, I buy a ginger brulee tart :) Andd I bought the BSB e-recipe book a few months ago too!! Can’t wait to try recreate that deliciousness!
