Baba Sus

15-17 Bardolph St Glen Iris, VIC 3146

Baba Sus has been on my list of must-visits ever since I first spied their amazing looking Hong Kong egg waffles on my Instagram feed, and my recent move to Glen Iris made this all the more easy. Located right next to Burwood train station, it occupies a little corner spot that’s been renovated into a bright, open café with wooden accents. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly, while the menu boasts a seasonal selection of dishes with South-East Asian influences.

Vietnamese coffee ($4.20)

For those who’ve never had it before, Vietnamese coffee is black filter coffee mixed with condensed milk. I’m usually not a fan as I don’t like sweet hot coffee, but K really enjoyed this.

Beer battered chips with kaffir lime salt, Sriracha aioli ($9)

An impressive bowl of chips for sure. It’s always difficult to make crispy thick-cup chips, but these had a lovely crunch to them while still being soft and fluffy on the inside. The kaffir lime salt added a great flavour, but it was the Sriracha aioli that really put the cherry on top.

The Piglette ($15) – Ka Prao pork omelette, spinach, Asian shoot salad

This was essentially an egg omelette stuffed full of minced pork. There was a nice balance between the different flavours of lime, ginger and chillies in the mince, all of which made for a very tasty dish.

Hong Kong Egg Waffles ($14) – Vanilla custard, berry compote, green tea ice cream, pistachio praline

The pièce de résistance at Baba Sus – Hong Kong egg waffles. The very generous serving of round waffles were more spongy than crispy like Belgian waffles, but worked very well to soak up the delicious, rich custard. I found the green tea ice cream to be a little weak in matcha flavour, but the berry compote added a tartness that complemented the rest of the flavours.

I was very impressed with all of the food that we had at Baba Sus. The Hong Kong egg waffles were just as delicious as I expected, and those chips were surprisingly addictive. I loved the atmosphere of the café as well, and can definitely see myself returning to spend the day with a good book, a matcha latte, and another serving of egg waffles!
