Uliveto, Kings Cross – Rating: 23/25 (re-review 2)

Sweet treats in the counter

For regular readers, Uliveto needs no introduction.  We have been twice before but keep returning!  See our first and second visits.
So let’s jump right in.

Cappuccino

Flat white

Mocha

Latte

As you can see we sampled almost every coffee!  All cups delivered fantastic flavours and were only let down by the fact that we were there on a Sunday and not a Saturday (when Uliveto’s award winning coffee artist is in the house)!  Not pictured was the strawberry and banana buttermilk smoothie.  The buttermilk smoothies are something I indulge in each visit.  They are remarkable and a must for any smoothie junkie.

Special fry-up

The breakfast special of the day was a fry-up ($15) consisting of two fried eggs, bacon, potato, spinach, mushrooms and onion.  As can be expected from Uliveto, they add their own flair with herbs and spices.  The size is good for the price and it was great to taste something new.

Eggs Benedict with bacon

The hollandaise topped breakfasts can be ordered with ham, bacon or salmon.  The bread below was lightly toasted and very light.  Perfectly poached eggs and a slightly tangy, well prepared hollandaise to top it all off.

Ulivetto big breakfast

The Uliveto big breakfast ($12.50) is served with eggs any style, bacon, tomato, pork sausages and toast.  Today’s guest raved about his scrambled eggs and was extremely impressed with the speed with which we were served and meals were prepared.  His sausages had great snap and he enjoyed mixing the harissa-style paste with the eggs.

Baked eggs, Spanish style

Until I find something better, I have to declare the baked eggs, Spanish style ($15) as the best baked eggs in Sydney.  It became difficult to fend off the numerous forks invading my bowl.  Served boiling hot and swimming in spices and flavours, you’ll find capsicum, chorizo, slightly runny eggs and a thick tomato base.  A large serving of bread comes on the side.  As I’ve said before, this is a must-try.

Blueberry muffin

Ulivetto shows us how to make muffins.  The blueberry muffin contained too many blueberries to count and that’s definitely not a bad thing.  This was fluffy and bursting with flavour.

Plum tart

Looking at the pastry counter it was hard to miss the plum tart.  Sweet but with a light and thin crust below it was a delight.  The plums were slightly sour but worked very well with the cream on the side.

Strudel

The strudel was delicate and airy with an almond paste inside.  Another dessert that was shared around the table and enjoyed by all.

We found the wait staff to be as efficient and friendly as normal.  Our six dishes (two people ordered the special) arrived within about ten minutes of ordering and it was difficult to fault any part of our visit.  Not just brilliant, but consistent too.
