Bauhaus West
163 Enmore Rd
Enmore, Sydney

Enmore is possibly one of the most famous suburbs in Sydney, home to The Enmore Theatre. It is here, almost directly across from the Enmore Theatre that you will find Bauhaus West, a trendy restaurant bar with a cocktail list to rival any CBD establishment.

Bauhaus West is an all seasons venue. It has a beautiful interior stylishly decorated with edgy post industrial type furniture. The seating style is mostly high chairs with tables and although bar type dining might seem unappealing to some people, the seating is actually very comfortable here. For the warmer months, there is a lovely outdoor area which is very relaxed and perfect for larger groups.

One of the things we love the most about this place is you can just pop in for a drink, which is great if you are waiting for a show to start across the road and don’t have much time.

The drinks list is quite comprehensive and the wine list is great. But don’t let that you think that this place doesn’t have awesome food, cause it does. The East-West fusion menu is definitely set to satisfy any appetite.

We arrived on a busy Friday night but finding a table wasn’t very difficult.

We choose a spot inside, outside seemed nice but still a bit cold for an alfresco meal.

We ordered two glasses of the simmonet–febre brut, a lovely French champagne while we studied the menu.

The counts like celebrating the end of a working week with a cocktail and here at Bauhaus West, they have a really impressive cocktail menu.
Count J had a harder week than usual and needed something with a bit of kick, so he chose an Espresso Martini whereas Count N was after a more refreshing drink and went with the Lychee Caipiroska. Both cocktails were mixed well.

The Espresso Martini was deliciously smooth without masking the vodka (as it should be) and with real butterscotch giving it a hint of caramel. The Caipirsoka was really refreshing and the fresh lychee was great.

We love stuffed Zucchini flowers so when we saw them on the menu we just had to have them. These were delicious and with a hint of chilli mixed in the goats cheese making them picante hit. Next we had some Japanese Fried Chicken. Crispy on the outside and juicy tender on the inside, these chicken pieces are a showstopper. They call it the JFC (get it?) but this chicken is ten times better than the other chicken, and the shrimp and oyster based sauce is a fantastic dipping agent. We couldn’t get enough of it.

Another thing we love about Bauhaus West is the food is designed for sharing so you can order lots of little things and try a bit of everything. We tried the Hunan Beef Short Rib, small pieces of rib, perfectly cooked and with a hint of hotness as they were marinated with chilli and shallots. These bite size ribs are a great choice if you are looking for a less messy way to enjoy ribs.

We also tried the mini arancini balls with a beautiful pesto sauce. These aromatic arancini balls, cooked with a secret spice, are well worth trying. Bauhaus West does larger servings just as well as share plates. We decided to order a main dish to try it out. The blue eyed cod was presented beautifully with a leek fondant and was really delicious. The leek, not overcooked, was quite crunchy and had a good texture. Its’ really easy to overcook leek and make it soggy but that wasn’t the case here. The serving size was massive.

After all this, we were determined to have dessert and not only did we order dessert, we ordered one each!!!!

Our first dessert (the counts share everything) was a sour cream ice cream stack. Smothered in chocolate biscuits, sesame crisps and a berry coulis. This dessert was both unique and extraordinary. Not only was it presented beautifully, the sour cream ice cream gave it a sour twist that blended so well with the rest of the ingredients.

Now after this, don't think our second dessert wasn't just as impressive. With a crunchy centred ball surrounded by some very tangy orange ice cream, this fondue had both counts scooping up every last bit.

Our amazing dining experience ended with two very beautifully done macchiatos all prepared on premises by their talented barista.

Bauhaus west ticks all the boxes. With a great space perfect for winter or summer, great service with baristas who are talented in both coffee and cocktails and a great food menu, it's the perfect choice for your next dining experience.

Bauhaus west is open Wednesday to Sunday. All their menu items are available as take away too and if you live locally, they'll even deliver it right to your door.
The Counts, who are part of the "Sir and Mlady Dine Out" team, dined as guests of Bauhaus West. Special thanks to Chris Thomas for the invitation.
