We have visited the restaurant Porteño before and loved it, so you can imagine our excitement when we hear they’ve opened a bakery next door to their restaurant in Surry Hills, called Humble.
Can we say, there’s no need to be humble when talking of this place, because it deserves the accolades. It has an impressive range of baked goods to go, or food to dine in, as well as coffee and gelato.
We’re there spot on opening time and grab a pigs head sausage roll straight out of the oven. The piping hot sausage (from LP’s meats) is encased in a buttery pastry and this is absolutely delicious and worth a try. Don’t bother for tomato sauce for it is perfect without.
We also try a bowl of their honey roasted granola, served with yoghurt, fruits and it is certainly a generous serving and a darn good granola.
We can’t go past a good croissant, so we try a lovely plain croissant and the absolutely incredible pecan, whisky, maple croissant. Outstanding, and you can see and feel the generous topping over the croissant, so much so it weighs down the pastry itself. What a treat!
If you’re there for lunch, there are a range of sandwiches, whether it be ham, gruyere and zucchini butter pickle, and eggplant parmigiana with fresh mozzarella, so it’s perfect for vegetarians as well. The lunch menu also has salad bowls served with bread or rice.
Sweets adorn the top of the counter with the likes of a golden Basque cheesecake, a flan and apricot tart, upside down cake or finger bun to name a few.
In addition, we see dough rising in the huge ovens and loves of freshly made bread behind the counter ready to buy. White sourdough, ciabatta and baguettes are available and from 10 am there’s also a range of focaccias. Sadly we were a bit early for that, so we’ll be back to try them another time in addition to the lunch menu.
A brilliant bakery and a good addition to the area.
