The great thing about having breakfast or brunch made for you is that a restaurant will probably go the extra mile when it comes to preparation. How often would you really contemplate making your own corn fritters to sit next to your eggs and bacon, after all?
Thanks to the influence of years of American TV and movies on screen and the number of different American dishes like
mac and cheese that have made it over the ocean to become part of our standard fare, the big American brunch is nothing new here in Australia. However, if you're used to always having hash browns as a side, why not change things up and order a dish that features corn fritters instead?
Of course, you may not be in the mood for corn fritters at breakfast time; your craving for them might kick in a little later in the day. That's ok, though, as Sydney's restaurants and cafes serve corn fritters up in different guises across their menus. You just have to know where to find them.
1. Fresh Corn Fritters
Order Fresh Corn Fritters from the All Day Brunch menu at the Lid and Jar Cafe for a hearty veggie breakfast. The corn fritters come with smashed avocado, a mix of salad leaves, a poached egg, and salsa. Drizzled over the top is a tangy Italian glaze to finish off the dish.
2. Corn, Capsicum and Onion Fritters
The Corn Fritters at Honey & Co are a little bit different. Instead of just featuring corn, they have capsicum and diced onion mixed in before they're battered and fried. They're served on the All Day Breakfast menu with bacon or smoked salmon and an avocado salsa.
3. Mixed Veg Corn Fritters
At the Reantong Restaurant in Pyrmont, the Corn Fritter is taken to an even more sophisticated level. In their Corn Fritter, there's a mix of vegetables, including sweetcorn, pumpkin, zucchini, carrot, red capsicum, and sweet potatoes, with shallots and coriander. The fritter is served with smashed avocado, bacon, poached eggs, and a house-made tomato relish all contributing towards your five a day.
4. Corn Fritters & Chilli Sauce
At the Kindness Cafe, they're a side dish on the Thai restaurant menu. The corn kernels are dipped in a house-made batter and fried and are served with sweet chilli sauce for dipping. They make a great alternative starter to spring rolls or can be served as a side along with any of the main dishes on the menu.
5. Zucchini Corn Fritter Burger
If you're after a quick bite at lunch, rather than having a beef burger, why not try a veggie option for lunch with the Zucchini Corn Fritter burger from In the Annex. This modern Australian restaurant specialises in inventive dishes for breakfast and lunch and the Zucchini Corn Fritter comes with fresh kale and chilli relish on the side.
