Baffi and Mo Expresso, Redfern

As some of you know I HEART my potato! Potato chips, Spanish potatoes, mash potato, hash browns, baked potatoes - oh em gee, the list goes on! So when I discovered Baffi and Mo, well more of their hash browns, I jumped into a car and rushed to their door steps - COME TO MOMMA!

Potato Stash with their signature hash brown
Latte - $3.50
Egg Baffi - $13.00
Potato Hash Stack with smoked salmon - $15.00?
The potato hash was gigantic and it came with half an avocado, quite generous! I actually struggled to finish it off - what is happening to me?? There wasn't any dressing on the salad but who needs dressing when you can use the egg yolk from the soft boiled egg as a dressing. Simple but effective and since that day I have stolen that idea and used it in my home cooked breakfasts! 

The hash brown itself was so damn good. It was crunchy and crispy on the edges while the middle was kind of soft and potato-ey! The only thing I would fix would be to be a bit more generous on the salmon. An extra slice of salmon wouldn't of hurt.

The place is small and generally quite busy. So if you want to go, best to visit early especially if you are coming with a large group. In saying that though, the crowds do move fast for a spot for two.

  1. Dear Shan Shan,

    Apparently this cafe has good sandwiches. I like potatoes too although I'm on a low carb diet by choice and I think my fave is a very creamy and decadent mash. But recently, I have found this recipe to be great with a roast as well and had heaps of it during our recent trip to the Southern Highlands.

  14. Hmm..at my most recent visit to Baffi & Mo, the hash brown wasn't that great! Glad to hear the chefs were on top of it the day you were there though! =)

  16. Oh my! I do love a good hash brown... in fact, on a recent trip to Palm Springs I had to keep ordering the hash browns at one place on the side with every breakfast dish, just so I could try something new (as the main that is... not the side. You know what I mean!)

    Thanks for sharing this one... I'm definitely putting it on the list now I'm back in Sydney!
