Drive by this corner in Croydon Park in the evenings and you’ll notice people eating, chatting, smoking shisha and laughing. When it comes to breakfast, people are fresh out of bed ready for their poached eggs, freshly brewed coffee and greetings of ‘Top of the Morning’. This is Shisha Bar and Grill, a modern Middle Eastern and Mediterranean joint in the heart of Sydney.
Cow hide aprons and exposed coffee machines, crooked Middle Eastern hats and rough beards, normally we’d come here for a tender steak or a rack of ribs covered in BBQ sauce with a bottle of red Chateau Musar imported from Lebanon.
Today, we needed a change, we’re here for the all day breakfast. The menu combines Arabic and Mediterranean flavours with the food artfully placed on wooden boards and drinks poured into glass jars.
Must try the watermelon granita with crushed ice and fresh mint ($7.50) it’s a refreshing hit and compliments almost everything on the breakfast menu. Watermelon and Fetta Salad with a side of Za’atar Bread ($15), Providore Board: Double Smoked Ham, Poached Eggs, Avocado, Mushrooms, Fetta, Cherry Tomatos and Pesto ($19), Sojuk Omelette with Mushrooms, Onion and Tomato Relish ($17)
Exceptional customer service, great food and fun atmosphere. Get your asses down to Shisha Bar and Grill.
Shisha Bar & Grill is located at 61 Georges River Road Croydon Park NSW 2133
