Sides and Main is one of the best shops in Potts Point and when it opened its doors about 2 months ago, we were so excited. You can tell by now that we love good food done well and I have no problem with praising or worshipping a great chef – as some of my readers would know from About Us.
So back to SIDES & MAIN – a very small space where on one wall, you can pick up a selection of high quality dry products like you might find at places like Simon Johnson or Jones the Grocer. No supermarket standard here – we are talking quality. But the strength of this place is behind the very glamorous chain curtain where you will catch a glimpse of the kitchen and Karen Murray cooking great food made with the best ingredients. This is not a kitchen where there are lots of people running around but a calm place that is more about the preparation and the goodness of the food. I get a strong feeling this is where Karen quietly goes about doing what she loves doing so well.
Is Potts Point not lucky to have Sides & Main in its mix? – where busy people can rush in and take home good food to go anytime for one – or as many as you need. Long live great chefs with real passion! So much to choose from like; lamb braised with cinnamon, chickpeas and aubergine Moroccan chicken with harissa, mint and carrot served with couscous. Cauliflower gratin plus pies for one person – mashed potato with large pieces of salmon and peas, YUM YUM there is also chicken with leek.
