THE BALMAIN HOTEL
Sydney, New South Wales

Top10 Image
The Inner West is home to the hip Balmain Hotel. With its weatherboard-beach-shack meets inner-west-bar feel, The Balmain Hotel offers three bar areas, plus, the quirky pink flamingo room, which was built specifically with the ladies in mind. The fit out is fanciful with fringed umbrellas and walls painted in bright turquoise and sunny yellow. The menu also has a hybrid theme of sorts, with dishes ranging from sliders to steamed buns and southern fried chicken.

PROFILE BY BEST RESTAURANTS

I love a posh hatted or Michelin-starred restaurant as much as the next foodie, but sometimes it’s a humble steak and fries from down the road that hits the spot. And that’s what the Balmain Hotel delivers - moreish pub food and a trendy beverage menu to boot.

We begin with a share plate for 2 featuring Balmain Fried Chicken, field mushroom arancini with parmesan and truffle, as well as the popular Peking duck steamed buns. It’s not hard to see why the duck is a crowd favourite, the buns are soft and fluffy, melting in the mouth and the perfect companion to the richness of the duck, drizzled with hoisin and topped with cucumber and shallots. The rest of the menu is separated into an assortment of salads, burgers, seafood, meat and “favourites”, meaning that no pub food craving can possibly be left ungratified. Settling on the southern style fried schnitzel and the pulled pork burger proves to be a filling affair, both are served with a healthy, I mean, hearty, serving of fries. We finish with our favourite dish of the night, the salted caramel sliders, comprising of salted caramel icecream, doused in hot chocolate sauce and caramel popcorn. Sticky fingers and satisfied stomachs ensue.

Recently refurbished, the interior is vibrant and quirky, following a tiki theme. There is no shortage of pubs in Sydney’s inner west, but perhaps none quite as fun as the Balmain Hotel.
