Maslow’s, Pymble – Closed

  15 November 2014

EDIT: CLOSED, looking for new digs. So word on the street is that Maslow’s (1116 Pacific Highway, Pymble) is a hidden gem on the North Shore. Eager for a trip out of the CBD, Raff and I took a Friday off to get our brunch on. Side note: to get to Maslow’s google Pymble Ave instead because you won’t be able to stop on Pacific Hwy.

If you took the train, take the underpass which leads to Pymble Ave so you don’t have to walk the long way as we found out haha

The Draco Mille Feuille ($17) is so fricken pretty it made up for my sadness that the Trout with Pea Soup was taken off the menu. Gooey 62°eggs begging to be stabbed, slices of caramelised black pudding and a ridiculously tasty grilled onion reduction that totally tasted like french onion soup and kinda had me wishing for melty cheese… There were a couple of sheets of buttery flaky pastry but I would’ve loved either ten times more pastry or a hunk of bread to mop up the sauce.

With a name like Mr Pig ($10) how could we resist? There was slabs of tender braised pork, a 62°egg and baby salad leaves. I wasn’t too keen on the brioche buns which was a tad on the dense side so in my attempt to wrap my jaws around this baby I had to squish everything which led to leakage of precious hot sauce.

I love a good scone and the Victoria’s Secret ($10) scones were super light and fluffy and the accompanying passionfruit curd and cream was gleefully slathered inch thick.

By the time we’d demolished everything, the lunch menu had just begun and Raff the eating machine reeeeally wanted to try the Cheeky Frolick ($24) which set my heart a flutter from the very first bite. The Northern Rivers braised beef cheeks were tender and I kinda wished there was mash to make the perfect comfort food. We dunked the accompanying slices of sourdough into the carrot and miso sauce/soup/puree which fulfilled my vegetable requirements for the day.

All the baked goods are made in house, except for the cronuts brewnuts which are from Brewtown.

There’s communal tables inside Maslow’s with a couple of small tables and seats next to colourful mural outside. I’ll definitely be back to try the Balmain Bug Salad! Oh and bonus sighting of Yeeza!
