PROFILED BY DE GROOTS MEDIA
If you build it, they will come; or so it seems with the vast amount of wine and tapas bars that are springing up. Sydneysiders are simply loving them. So, it’s not really a surprise to hear that when SumBar swung open its doors upon Randwick’s Frenchmans Road, the locals made a beeline with waving wallets directly into its cosy rooms. The eastern suburbs have been crying out for more of these delectable little venues and luckily SumBar ticks all the right boxes. Furnished in dark wood with a choice of bar stools or intimate tables, the bar dominates proceedings with stylish flair. An upstairs parlour provides a clandestine setting which is perfect for sipping upon rich reds, nibbling on olives and indulging in intimate discussions. Downstairs guests bump elbows amicably while snacking on wedges of cheese and gran reserve Serrano jamon.

With a cheeky menu to boot, SumBar is sure to get your senses breaking into a salsa so my advice is to shimmy down to this joint and check it out. Each dish is designed to share so a scope of flavours can be enjoyed. Tuck into some succulent black tiger prawns which, according to the menu, will transport you to Costa del Sol, while “magic mushrooms” will abracadabra and reach out and grab ya. Moroccan-inspired lamb kafftas are placed upon baby spinach leaves and marry deliciously with the chickpea and spinach saute, and a glass of Veneto. The wine list takes a lazy stroll around Europe and Australia, and nods to their hard copy versions which are cellared ornamentally around the restaurant. You can almost hear the voices of the east calling out thank you.

EmB:

Visited this little gem for the second time in two weeks, and we were worried it wouldn't be as good for the return visit. However, this place offers consistently high quality tapas with friendly happy staff. Will keep visiting so we can work our way through the entire menu as it is so hard to choose a handfull of dishes! Great place!review  04/01/2013
