I was going to wait until I had eaten all 5 salads this week before I blogged about it, but why wait? The best thing about blogs is that you readers get the latest pics and info with minimal turnaround time.
I actually had this salad for lunch today… and less than 12 hours later, here you have it:

Bourke Street Bakery, Broadway - daily special salad: Bresaola with zucchini flowers, asparagus, broad beans, feta, baby spinach, basil and a lemon virgin dressing

Since Bourke Street Bakery started the email subscriptions, I have been obsessed! In winter, it was their hearty soups which were reinvented daily. Now, I’m stuck onto their salads -all of which are served with a generous slice of their delicious crusty sourdough. There’s nothing better than receiving an email reminder of the daily specials every morning… it keeps my mind set til lunch time!

Bourke Street Bakery, Broadway -daily special salad: Roast beef with grated pickled beetroot, goats feta, parsley, lentils, baby spinach and a red wine dressing

I found that the dressing in the roast beef salad (I had this last week, pic is above) to be too heavy, but the mix of lentils made it a scrumptious gourmet lunch that was extremely filling. Today’s bresaola salad was a lot lighter and just as tasty, although I would have loved more than one zucchini flower…
Are you hooked yet? Here are some of the recent salads that were on offer:

  • Pork with chat potato, chick pea, baby spinach, mint, basil and coriander, with a lemon, cornichon and spring onion dressing
  • Duck with roast potatoes, roast beetroot, goats feta, parsley, celery, lentils, baby spinach, and a red wine dressing
  • Roast chicken with white beans, croutons, braised fennel, parsley, and rocket and a lemon dressing
  • Smoked salmon with potato, capers, roast red onion, basil, hazel nuts, tomato, witlof and a lemon and verjuice dressing
  • Roast pork with chick pea, potatoes,baby spinach, mint, corriander, basil, and a light lemon mayo dressing
  • Roast lamb with crispy pancetta, roast pumpkin, green beans, parsley, baby spinach, anchovies, goats feta and a balsamic dressing

  • These look awesome, how much are they ? Crap thing is, I can only make it to Bourke St on the weekends -_- Though I wonder if they have these at the sister store in Wynyard ( I ‘think’ it’s their sister store anyway)

  • they’re $9… definitely worth checking at their other stores…. om nom nom nom… i feel ur pain… i used to work far from bourke st bakery too… am loving that its just down the street now!

    That looks so yumm. I wonder can you get the dressings on the side since I’m not a fan of most salad dressings…

  • They look REALLY good and I like the sound of the other salads too, especially the Duck with roast potatoes, roast beetroot, goats feta, parsley, celery, lentils, baby spinach, and a red wine dressing. I wish I was closer to get one for lunch but no BSB near me. Which is probably a good thing as I’d probably pick up some pastries along the way…to share for afternoon tea you see…ok maybe just for myself!

  • Lorraine haha… yeh, might be a good thing as my usual order is a salad & a tart! mmmm… love their almond & rhubard tarts or strawberry creme brulee tarts…
    Lucy I reckon they’d accommodate that!

  • I love their sandwiches but I haven’t tried their salads yet! Next time I see something interesting I’ll check it out!

  • Lucy

    Do they have website? I want to subscribe too!

  • I don’t think they have a website. Email them at [email protected] to subscribe

  • i think they do the smoked ocean trout salad every Thursday… it seems to have been the pattern for 2 – 3 weeks now… that’s the best salad they’ve ever done…. i think so anyway 🙂
