Ms Miller
457 Miller St
Cammeray, Sydney

Ms Miller is the new kid on the block in Cammeray that is attracting a lot of attention - both locally and from afar. It's the brainchild of James and Will Christopher and its a quaint place that has interesting and quirky decor, great food and impeccable service. It ticks all the boxes.

The menu from chef James Featherstone (who had success in the UK on MasterChef Professionals) has plenty of wonderful options on it. These go from smaller plates for nibbles through to larger sharing plates - or raciones. There are also always several specials to choose from the board - which we gladly did! On a balmy evening it would be nice to relax in the outdoor area and enjoy your meal, but there's always the indoor area and even bar seating for those that prefer this option.

We had trouble deciding what to choose from the many tasty options available so we started with a serving of marinated mixed olives.

They had been house marinated in a blend of citrus, chilli and thyme.

It was a great mix and the flavours were rich and full. A small bowl for the pips was also a nice touch! At only $6.00 it was good value as well.

Of course it's hard to eat tapas and not have a drink to go with it! Instead of just going straight to a bottle of red from a pretty good wine list, Mlady decided to start with a glass of Sangria - but you can also get this by the jug.

She raved about it and kept wanting more!

I stuck to the red and thoroughly enjoyed a lively Ecco de Vitoria Organic Tempranillo.

We eventually decided on four raciones - three from the menu and one from the specials board.

The paprika salt squid with aioli was recommended to us by our waiter Lewis, and it was a winner.

It was incredibly light and tender with lovely subtle flavours.

At only $14.00 for a good sized serving it was again great value as well.

Our second choice was the potato and chorizo bombay with spicy tomato sauce and aioli. This was from the specials board.

We weren't 100% sure what to expect here - but we're extremely glad we ordered this dish.
It was fantastic.

They were like round croquettes filled with potato and chorizo and each one was swimming in a tick rich tangy tomato sauce.

The bombays were delicious and so was the sauce - we finished every last drop of it!

At $15.00 for three big pieces it was good value for a really great dish.

We both love stuffed peppers so when we saw the piquillo peppers stuffed with goats cheese, corn and fresh herbs on the menu they were a sure choice.

These were quite unique with the corn being almost crunchy in a mass of melted goats cheese inside the peppers. It was a great blend of textures and the flavours were just as good. Like all the other dishes it arrived beautifully presented as well. Again they were good value at $14.00 for three.

While there are some people that don't like pork belly - I'm certainly at the opposite end of the spectrum!

The pork belly, guindillas and beetroot bocadillo in a serving of three was another recommendation - and another great one at that! The pork melted in my mouth and the crackling garnish looked and tasted great too!

At $16.00 for three they were a bargain.

We were quite full from the main courses but it's always hard to resist dessert - especially with a sweet tooth!

Mlady loves creme brulle and its southern cousin - crema Catalan - which she chose from the specials board. The sweet crust was lovely as was the custard underneath.

It also came with some delicious home made turron (a type of nougat) for a very reasonable $12.00.

I love Pedro Ximinez - so spying the Pedro Ximenez affogato on the specials board had already determined my choice!

It arrived on a platter with three parts - the coffee, the ice cream and the Pedro Ximenez.

This was excellent and only $14.00.

Ms Miller has wonderful food in generous quantities at extremely reasonable prices with beautiful presentation. The decor is quirky and interesting. It has a very European feel to it in downtown Cammeray.

Sir and Mlady dined as guests of Ms Miller and owners James and Will Christopher. Special thanks also to Lewis for looking after us so well on the night and to James Featherstone for his lovely food.
