Bang on bites at Barzura
The incredible happened.

My husband had a day off work, the sun was shining in glorious Coogee, our eldest was at pre-school and the little one fell asleep smack on lunch time whilst we were out walking with the stroller. This opportunity was a gift; we snatched it.

I had heard a few whispers out and about regarding Barzura's Nasi Goreng dish. Normally a local footpath pounder with two kids in tow, I believe I am a 'bowl of chips' connoisseur. The chance to indulge in a lunch time treat that did not involve toys or crayons, was such a delight.

And Barzura did not disappoint.

Having been here numerous times for dinner and breakfast, I was confident it would be a good choice with our miracle time. That view over the ocean is always breathtaking, regardless of how often you nab one of the prime tables out front. With only a quick glance at the menu that was delivered to us with a smile, we both put an order in for the Nasi Goreng; chicken for me, vegetarian for my husband. It is laden with peanuts and eggs, so allergy sufferers beware. But OMG; the whispers were on point. It was everything I had heard and more. Moist, colourful, fresh and no skimping on the chicken or bacon made it a standout. Normally someone who likes to stick with pretty bog standard dishes, I was in heaven and thrilled that the flavours were not too overpowering.

Valued at $18.50, it was really well priced for the size and quality. Open seven days a week from 7am, you are bound to find a time to suit you. But do be aware; it fills up pretty quickly, especially if you are keen for one of the outdoor tables.

Oh Barzura; you've done it again.

My only complaint is how on earth I am going to decide between the Nasi Goreng and the Japanese scallops in the future?

To set your mouth watering, have a look at their website.
