New York Pastrami, Reuben & Cupcakes at Sherbet in Maylands

burger boy and I love our American food, so we were pretty happy to find ourselves enjoying a New York Pastrami and Reuben Baguette at Sherbet Cake & Bake Shop in Maylands last weekend. We were catching up with our friends for brunch at Mrs S, but weren’t keen on waiting 40 minutes so Sherbet around the corner was the perfect back-up plan.

My friend who is a regular Sherbet diner explained that it is more of a take-away styled café where everything is prepared daily so what you see on the counter is what’s available to order.

There was no way we were walking out of Sherbet without dessert…

It costs a little more to dine-in at the vintage styled café but the prices are reasonable and for the cool vibe, it’s well worth it. The New York Pastrami and Reuben were $11 to take-away and $13 to dine-in.

I love dining out in Maylands, besides amazing food options.. the locals are just lovely! A couple offered to swap tables so the 6 of us could have the larger table and I remember the same kind of experience at Swallow Bar.

By the time we had settled down, the queue to order at the counter was out the door so we each took turns to hold our place in line whilst the others mosied up to the counter to check out what’s on offer. burger boy at first didn’t want to share with me but after seeing both the New York Pastrami and Reuben on offer, he quickly changed his mind as he was keen to try both.

I loved this New York Pastrami toastie which was served with crisps and gherkins. It was filled with swiss cheese, sauerkraut, Russian dressing and rocket on multigrain sourdough. Half of this went to burger boy although I really could have easily eaten more…

burger boy had most of the Reuben Baguette which he loved even more than the New York Pastrami. I only had a couple of bites of the Reuben as I wanted to fit in a slice of the Rhubarb Dessert Crumble :) so I think burger boy got the better end of the bargain even though he didn’t even want to share in the first place! The bread was beautiful and the corn beef wasn’t too salty. I also had a latte ($4.20) ready to have with my dessert…

I’ve been a bit of obsessed with rhubarb desserts since my friend Mahara and I made Jamie Oliver’s Rhubarb Millefeuille Pie on our girl’s night in. Sherbet’s Rhubarb Dessert Crumble hit the spot…

burger boy and I went back to Sherbet yesterday for a quick bite in between my friend’s wedding ceremony and reception. We had the New York Pastrami again and spoiled ourselves with a latte and this Red Velvet Cupcake – service and food at Sherbet was just as good as the first time :)

I’m sure we will be back to Sherbet again soon, if not next weekend :)

I’m a foodie who enjoys trying new food anywhere / any place (restaurants, cafes, bars, market stalls, fast food joints…anywhere just name it!) both in Perth, Western Australia and on my travels. I’m not your ordinary foodie, I’m often described as ‘fussy’ but I really really do love my food - I guess just not everything that’s put on my plate. Though, my other half, ‘burger boy’, eats most foods so I’ll be blogging about what he eats too…and as the name implies, burgers will be a regular foodie blog for all you burger lovers outthere. I love showcasing my yummy food finds with pics so I thought why not share my passion for food with other foodies with my blog, foodie cravings. Follow my food journey as I discover new keepers and rave about my all-time favourites.

    Those desserts look divine and I would definitely hit that rhubarb crumble. Look at all those cakes!
