At cafe Naked Brew the local pooches sit at outdoor tables enjoying carob-and-peanut-butter “domuts” (that’s a dog doughnut) and doggie chinos with goat’s milk and sprinkles of liver.
Naked Brew’s menu for humans by owner Kevin Luu (ex-Euforia Balmain) has a section called “Unbelievable/Unforgettable”. It includes spongy buttermilk waffle with crackling-topped five-spice pork belly, slivers of Granny Smith and wasabi mayo; a lightly cured salmon fillet with freekeh, charred corn and a pomegranate yoghurt; and, instead of eggs Benedict, there’s a whole soft-shell crab Benedict with daikon, fried onions and Sriracha hollandaise.
Flip the menu over to the Everyday Goodness page and you’ll find simple avo on toast, a bacon-and-egg roll and granola. There’s also a pork belly, green apple and gouda burger; sandwiches; salads and coffee from Stanmore powerhouses Five Senses.
The design uses clean lines and design; wishbone chairs, long LED lights and tiling from Rozelle’s Skheme.
