Mad Spuds Cafe (Surry Hills, NSW)

I still have a series of posts that remain 'unblogged,' somewhat because of time, and somewhat because of the emotions attached to some of the places.  It's been difficult sorting through some of those photos, but I finally got around to editing some of them, so I'll be having some random pop-up posts from places other than Brissy in the next month...



Boil ‘em, mash ‘em, stick ‘em in a stew!  I’m a huge fan of taters in any form, so when I visited Sydney, I just had to try out the Mad Spuds Café in Surrey Hills.  Decorated with all things spuds – Mr. Potatoheads, posters, fliers, figurines – this earthy café specializes in potatoes of all kinds!

I got the Whacko Taco, which were beautifully presented baked spuds, topped with spicy ground Mexican style beef, avocado, salsa, and sour cream.  The ground beef wasn’t much of an authentic Mexican flavor, but was still good, especially with the rest of the condiments.  The potato baked to perfection – including the skin – which was edible all the way through!  Often times the skin gets too dry or burnt, but this was perfect!  The ingredients were fresh, and they didn’t skimp on the presentation.  The food was delicious, but a bit pricy for what it's worth.  The chai latte wasn’t bad either, and to top it off, their service, although a bit slow, was friendly.

The Little Piggy – baked spuds with crispy bacon strips, mozzarella, brie, feta, and sour cream – also looked really delicious!  Although not the best bang for your buck, I still enjoyed my experience at this homely café.
