Popular Redfern eatery and sandwich palace Scout’s Honour is proud to be welcoming a new addition into the family. Weighing in several tonnes, please say hello to Morris, opening on the corner of Albion Avenue and Selwyn Street in Paddington — and he promises to be just as popular as his chicken 'n' chip sanga-lovin' big brother.
Morris's menu is a sandwich lover’s dream and, similar to Scout’s Honour, focuses on good, clean basics and wholesome ingredients. You’ll find a combo of sandwiches, salads and bowls, all full to the brim with ingredients your nutritionist would approve of (think fresh veggies, seeds, nuts and lean meats). The spicy fish tacos with shredded cabbage, corn and cucumber salsa, avocado, toasted pepitas, harissa sauce and fresh lime ($16) looks like clear a standout.
The comprehensive sides and additions menu means you can freshen up your toast or tailor your meal to your taste. Although you may find yourself stuck on the sides, with options like with an avocado, coriander and walnut salsa with sesame and lemon ($6), labneh and hazelnut dukkah ($5) and bacon and house pickles ($6). Wash it down all with a freshly squeezed juice, chai or smoothie. For the winter months, we’ve got out eye firmly trained on the mug of hot milo with textured milk ($4).
The cute new eatery is a summer-time haven with shady outdoor eating and large street front windows to complement the fresh menu. They’ve taken a few cues from Scout’s Honour and kept the interior design and colour palette warm and simple, with yellow and cream finishes throughout and a rough concrete finish on the exterior. Morris looks like it has all the qualities we’ve come to love about Scout’s Honour and we just can’t wait to get our handies on those sandies.
Find Morris at 33 Albion Avenue, Paddington. Officially opening Tuesday, February 23.
