Sorry Northsiders, we know you’d rather keep this suburb your little secret, but we can’t stay quiet about it much longer. Cammeray restaurants are getting some well-deserved limelight recently, and Ms Miller could be one of the reasons for this attention.
Looking for tasty tapas? Heart stopping jamon and manchego croquetas? Healthy salads (y’know, you offset the croquetas)? Ms Miller does these and so much more.
By day, the breakfasts and lunch salads offer a delicious yet healthy start to the day, alongside fresh juices and smoothies. We won’t tell if you opt for the Kickstart burger though, which doubles up on the bacon, and includes a lashing of chorizo and caramelised onion. What are the colder months for, after all? The more virtuous can opt for the crunchy and light fennel, orange and olive salad, which will tick all the right boxes (including the one labelled “yum”).
As the sun sets, Ms Miller takes on a more sultry mood. In amongst the flickering candlelight, we highly recommend you share some tapas and a sangria jug with friends, or a long meaningful look with your date if things are going well (preferably over some cheese or jamon). We know we’re heading back over summer for the fruity cocktails and Pimms Especiale jug too, along with a bit of breeze through our hair.
Let’s get to the real reason you’re here though—the food. Garlic mushrooms, jamon and manchego croquetas, seared scallops with morcilla and jamon crisp—these are just the small plates you’ll struggle to pick from. The 5-hour lamb should definitely be on your hit list though. All the preserved lemon and sweet potato balance out the richness just so, while the toasted almonds add the all- important crunch factor. The ever-popular BBQ pork ribs are also totally worth getting your fingers sticky for.
Midweek, Ms Miller’s moreish mussels are up for grabs, and well worth crossing the bridge for. The paella is the perfect hump day pick-me-up, and don’t even get us started on the patatas bravas that come with your pot of mussels come Thursday. Add a drink and you’ll only pay $25 per person.
As a final salute, save room for the warm chocolate fondant. Yes, that's right, the kind that's oozy in the middle.
So Listers, now you have another reason to visit this North Shore suburb—the hardest decision you’ll need to make is when to go! For lucky Cammeray locals, you may also experience a bit of an uptick in how many friends suddenly suggest a catch up on your side of town. Don’t hesitate to send us an invite!
