The White Horse is one of the top local venues in Surry Hills where one can pop in for a casual drink or feed any day of the week.
The kitchen at this icon has just been taken over by the infamous Chicken and Sons team who will be serving up their popular menu to punters including burgers, salads, and delicious chicken (done in a smoker for extra flavour).
Having worked in Michelin starred restaurants around the world, we knew we were in for a treat when we recently got to sample some of the menu’s offerings. We started off with a couple of sides to share firstly opting for the aptly-titled, You Are What You Beet. This beetroot-heavy dish consisted of roasted beets, lavender honey, caramelised pear, raisin, and pedro ximinex vinaigrette. Delicious!
Next came the Mexicano – a side comprising of brown rice, charred corn, coriander, avocado, black bean, tortilla chips, and chipotle dressing. We love our Mexican and licked the plate clean – the party in our mouths had well and truly begun!
For the main, the options included chicken, fish, meat and five delicious-sounding burgers. We settled on the fish and the C&S Classic Buttermilk Fried Chicken Burger. The fish was a 180g Treacle Cured Hot Smoked Salmon. It was delectable and just melted in the mouth.
The burger too was finger-licking good. It comprised of buttermilk breast, red cabbage slaw, chipotle aioli, cheese, and house pickles and was as fine as you would find in any pub across the city.
The White Horse is one of the top locals in Surry Hills but also one to add to the list for out-of-towners. The White Horse is open daily until midnight (until 10pm on Sundays).
