Silo’s Black Breakfast makes Gourmet Traveller

johnboy 16 August 2012 8

Thanks to Poetix for the tip. Gourmet Traveller’s list of “Great Australian Breakfasts” has a Canberra entry:

21 Black breakfast, Silo Bakery
Silo’s black breakfast is uncompromising in both name and flavour. A dense house-baked rye and grain bread chimes with the deep and earthy qualities of black pudding. Borage flowers and sweet pickled radish add a slash of colour and acid for contrast. 36 Giles St, Kingston, ACT, (02) 6260 6060

UPDATE 16/08/12 10:32: Also Lonsdale Street Roasters at 15:

15 Cuban slow-roasted pork panino, Lonsdale Street Roasters
Lonsdale has created quite a buzz with the quality of the single-origin coffee roasted on the premises. Its brunch panini are also a drawcard, not least this combination of rich pork and tangy pickled jalapeños. The house-baked banana bread provides a great sweet finish. 3/7 Lonsdale St, Braddon, ACT, (02) 6156 0975

You’ve not been to silo on a saturday surely.

Fo instance, one can always tell the Lonely Planet venues, they are the ones that used to have great food until they became so busy after being mentioned in LP.

Good luck to them both though, it’s great to see.

Any chicken? Or free range eggs on the menu?

Not to mention the fact that they almost killed a number of their patrons and complained that ACT Health was being ‘unreasonable’ in shutting them down (temporarily).

The people that were poisoned will have life long suffering because these jokers don’t know how to handle food safely.

Do not eat there.

Ah yes Silo, Canberra’s most overrated breakfast joint. Poor service, crowded, and equivalent to dining in the Main Concourse of the Grand Central Terminal.

My meat envy is playing up. Though not so much the black sausage as the Cuban panino. Sigh. Sometimes a Cuban is just a fantasy..
