Nestled snugly in Surry Hills, Sydney, there's this little gem called Rosie Campbell's
that's like a one-way ticket to the lively streets of the Caribbean. Picture this: reggae beats, a riot of colours, and the delicious aroma of authentic Jamaican dishes. Owned by the maestro Andrew Wallace of ESPER Hospitality, Rosie Campbell's isn't just a restaurant; it's a portal to the heart of the Caribbean.
Sippin' and Feasting: The 90-Minute Carnival
Our day kicked off with a brunch that felt like a tropical carnival. For $99 a head, we indulged in a 90-minute extravaganza of unlimited Daiquiris and Rose
, paired with a five-course island banquet that sent our taste buds on a wild dance.
The feast began with a Tropical Salad that was basically a Caribbean party on a plate – watermelon, pineapple, mango, radish, pickled green chilli, and coriander in a symphony of flavours.
Then came the Plantain Fritters – crispy, golden bites of plantains, corn, and jalapeno, with a mango salsa that was basically sunshine in a bowl.
The Island Taco gave us choices - jerk chicken or veggie, both bursting with Jamaican spices. The Kingston Prawns, coconut-chilli, and coriander-infused, served with coconut pita bread, transported us straight to a beachside feast.
But oh, the Famous Jerk Chicken stole the show – flame-grilled, pineapple salsa-topped, and smothered in their house-made jerk sauce. It was the kind of dish you'd write home about.
Surry Hills Vibes: More Than Just a Meal
Beyond the amazing food, Rosie Campbell's has this laid-back vibe. The reggae tunes, the friendly atmosphere – it's like being at a Caribbean bash with your best pals. The 90-minute package turned our brunch into a full-on experience, leaving us with memories to savour long after the last drop of Daiquiri. Name one person who doesn't love it!
ESPER Hospitality's Caribbean Haven
Andrew Wallace has truly worked his magic at Rosie Campbell's. Locals flock here for a taste of Jamaica, and rightly so. From coconut pepper prawns to slow-cooked curry goat, the menu is a love letter to Caribbean flavours. But the real hero? The famous jerk chicken – a dish that speaks volumes about the soul of this place.
And the finale? The house-made rum cake – a slice of heaven that had us dreaming of sandy beaches and turquoise waters with every bite.
In a nutshell, Rosie Campbell's isn't just a restaurant; it's a journey. So, grab your pals, pick a lazy Saturday or Sunday between 12 pm and 3 pm, and let Rosie Campbell's transport you to a world of reggae beats, rum-filled glasses, and the irresistible allure of island flavours. Here's to bottomless brunches and the magic of Surry Hills! Cheers!
