Really f#cking great fried chicken w chilli in a basket $16

Reuben Hills, Surry Hills

Reuben Hills is so popular on Sundays there’s a 15 minute waiting line. As we are seated, more people keep turning up vying for a table – we’re onto something here.

Ambience: casual, modern, with a touch of the 80s – think pink neon lights installed on the walls. Retro glass bottles have been upcycled into cute water canisters.


Slim 'n' lite anybody?

Salted caramel shake $8.50

The milkshake cup is filled ¾ full – so you’re not really getting your value’s worth. But how good does it taste you ask? It was good…creamy, with a hint of vanilla and it had a nice amount of caramel thought it wasn’t salty enough to be labelled a salted caramel shake methinks. My suggestion to management: either provide more product or shave a few dollars off your asking price.

Don’t be shy ordering this because it’s exactly what’s on the menu. I avoid over exaggerating in my food blog, but that doesn’t mean I’m hard to please. I believe I give praise when it’s due but the way ‘f#cking’ was used is hyperbolic – Was it good enough to warrant being called f#cking great? Probably not. The chicken pieces however were very moreish and very moist, deep fried in a light, well-seasoned coating of batter. This dish has Mexican flavours supplied great pickled jalapenos, herb and chili salsa and mayonnaise thrown in for diversity.

Stingy aka Surry Hills servings

The entire sandwich had the span of my hand. I bet Ash could finish it in two bites and he did, my only complaint would be there wasn’t enough of this delectable toasted sandwich!

I’m aware that I was being critical about the prices in this review, aside from that, all the food we ordered tasted decent, service was friendly and so was the hospitality.

If you’re a food blogger who has blogged this place, would you agree or disagree with what I’ve said? Please be honest I’m very open to discussion. And if you’re not a food blogger I’d like to direct the same question to you, agree or disagree?
