Bourke Street Bakery Has Liquid Gold

When I first tried the mocha in Bourke Street Bakery, I did not pay much attention to it. It was lovely and warming with a subtle nutty taste...but then, I started craving it a few days later! I just could not stop dreaming about the rich aroma of chocolate, coffee and nuts! I order the mocha every time I go there and when I drink it, it makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside. It is the best coffee I have ever drank; it is indeed liquid gold!!!

And the baked goodies are also delicious too. I have tried numerous items on the menu and here are my favourites.

#1 - Carrot Cake

I was never a fan of carrot cake until I tried this baby! Surprisingly more filling than it looks. Lovely nutty texture with a hint of sweetness complemented perfectly with the light fluffy cream filling.

#2 - Strawberry & Vanilla Brulee Tart

Crunchy burnt sugar topping with a tasty custard filling encased in a light biscuit basket. I also tried the ginger brulee tart but I did not like it as much as it was far too sweet for my liking.

#3 - Pain Au Chocolat

Mmm...flaky pastry filled with chocolate!

#4 - Chicken Pie

Hot chicken pie filled with chunky bits of chicken and vegetables in a lovely thick sauce.

#5 - Lemon Curd Tart

This tart has the right balance of sweetness from the sugar and the sourness from the lemon curd. It almost has a cooling effect from eating it with a fresh aftertaste.

Bourke Street Bakery is a small hidden corner shop in Surry Hills with limited seating areas. However, there is a park across the road which is a great place to chill and eat these delightful goodies.

I also noticed that there is a Bourke Street Bakery Book for anyone who is interested in trying to replicate these baked delights. Not me though. I was born to eat, not to bake! LOL
