Breakfast at Medusa Greek Meze in Sydney

Exploring Sydney can be a challenge – there’s so much to do, see and more importantly, eat. We had to start a long day of adventure right, so stumbled into the city and found breakfast at Medusa Greek Meze in Sydney.

Medusa Greek Meze was spacious compared to the many hole-in-the-wall joints dotting the city. Here, you seem invited to dine and linger, rather than order and bugger off; travelling families, such as ours of four adults and a one year old certainly appreciated the space. Even the al fresco dining area was still undercover, giving us lots of options despite the dreary damp weather.

Medusa Greek Meze - Menu

The Medusa Greek Meze breakfast menu had some very familiar items, so we ordered a variety of things, including a side of scrambled eggs on toast just for Bubby. The boy might only be one year old, but he certainly can eat his fair share of food – wonder where he got that from. 🙂

I wasn’t a fan of their liberally buttered ‘crusty toast’. It was crusty and toasty, but I’m a soy linseed and whole grains bread kinda girl, so white bread is not my cup of tea. With that said, it was the perfect thing to mop up the golden egg yolk lava and balance the bite of saltiness from the feta on my poached eggs, smashed avocado with crusty toast and oregano feta. The avocado was really sliced, but hey! I cannot fault such a rich satisfying breakfast on that technicality.

Medusa Greek Meze‘s omelette wasn’t neat and tidy, but don’t judge a book by its cover. Or as I like to say, pretty food still comes out the other end as shit – what matters first and foremost should always be flavour. Their omellette with shallots certainly has plenty of it, but if you need a bigger bang in your mouth, they served this with a chunky tomato relish that was well-balanced of sweet and tangy.

The Meze Big Brekky was the motherload of breakfast. We got the works with this one. This was the first time my parents tasted haloumi, so I laughed when my mother described it as rubbery ‘tau kua‘. The haloumi wasn’t overly salty and spotted impressive char marks, signs the chef had the patience of a saint.

Unfortunately a little impatience would have been more appropriate for the grilled sausage. My father had difficulty chewing the crisp blackened sausages, so kept to the eggs and toast.

As for the additional side of scrambled eggs on toast for Bubby… he polished most of it off without complaint or struggle. Medusa Greek Meze definitely won on that bonus round.
