Lo Luk a French Bistro recently taking up residence in a converted terrace on Bourke Street Surryhills, towards Taylor Square. This new French provincial inspired Bistro is a neighbourhood gem opened by Luc an his brother from Northern France to serve homely traditional French cuisine. With street front seating allowing you to take in the social mixing pot which is Surryhills, there is indoor seating in the cosy cottage like dining room decorated with a touch of vintage French. Something special is the private courtyard dining area at the back of the restaurant.
We visited for breakfast/brunch and started with the house made lemon Madeline to accompany our cafè au lait as the French would say. This is perfect if you are after a light sweet start to your day. The Madeline a golden cake with a nice subtle lemon flavour a very tasty moresel indeed.
There were also a range of great drinks to suit, depending on what you are after be it a stiff start to your day in the form of a mimosa or bloody mary or a healthier option by choosing to go with a smoothy. The Champion smoothie a great refershing drink.
The breakfast Oeufs parfait en verrine was magnific, a 60 degree slow cooked egg atop of slow cooked(confit) lamb and vegetables flavour infused with a mixture of herbs. The dish served with a side salad and house made focaccia. A dish that goes hand in hand with winter.
We were in the mood for healthy and ordered Le Lèger. A salad of quinoa, pomegranade, leeks fondue, beetroot, goats cheese and poached egg. A salad with plenty of substance, perfect if you are after a light meal.
