Bavarian Bier Cafe – York St


A friend from Japan was in Sydney on holiday so where to go for dinner? A German restaurant…  Bavarian Bier Cafe on York St was where we ended up, seated downstairs on a long bench style table. It was Friday night so the place was very busy and also very noisy! Not the place for a quiet dinner and conversation.

You can’t go to a beer cafe without ordering some beer so we tried out the ‘3 Pure Bier’ a 200ml’s taste of 3 different beers.  After waiting a long time for are meal to come the waiter comes and apologies for the delay and says are meals were given to someone else and offers some free drinks or desert so I chose a desert. Thought it was nice that they admitted a mistake, it was not much after then the meals came out.

The tasting plate is an all meat affair lots of tasty pork with some mash and sour kraut.  Schnitzel and the pork belly are the best I like the crisp skin on the pork belly, sausages are ok but not a highlight of the dish. Oven baked schnitzel is nice baking it gives it a different taste then fried.

I am a fan of the food at the Bavarian Bier Cafe I have been many times and always enjoyed it. If you like generous servings of meat and beer is a good place to go.

Cafe Enzo – Hunter Valley


Went on a day trip up to the Hunter Valley last weekend driving around to different vineyards one of the stops was Peppers Creek Village. In a beautiful location by a small lake and vineyard, there are a few shops, cellar door, and cafe/restaurant.

It was a perfect sunny day so we decided to eat outside where there are quite a few tables set up in a courtyard inside the restaurant is really nice too, stone walls with timber panel ceiling.

The food was very good although bit pricy for a cafe lunch. The Linguini was quite spicy with the chilli & sausage combined much hotter than I was expecting, fresh tasty tomatoes and the cheese helped to cut down the heat and it also had a generous amount for prawns! Steak sandwich was nice, the meat tender and juicy on a fresh bun with some tasty fillings.
