So, what’s the menu at The Balmain Hotel all about then? As we said above, it’s inspired by Southern American and Asian cuisines and is home to a whole host of seriously enticing dishes. We recommend kicking things off with some starters to share, like the spiced squid with chipotle aioli; crispy fish tacos and The Balmain baos filled with five-spiced pork belly, cucumber and Hoisin sauce. Then, if you’re after a main at this Sydney pub and bar, we love the chicken choy bow (which is like san choy bow with a unique South Asian twist); grilled salmon topped with pomegranate, fennel and watercress or the classic chicken parmigiana topped with smoked ham. Delish!
We’re also a big fan of the burgers at The Balmain Hotel Sydney and recommend the buffalo chicken burger with blue cheese sauce and the halloumi burger topped with mushrooms, beetroot and eggplant chutney. You’ll also find a range of South American and Asian-style chicken wings as well as pizzas, poke bowls and salads. Wash all that down with your cocktail, beer or wine of choice (either inside the pub or out on the courtyard terrace), and you’ve got yourself a tropical time to remember at The Balmain Hotel on Mullens Street in Sydney!
