FOLD – food, wine & bakery

February 19, 2014 at 12:00 pm 1 comment


Hidden beside one of Sydney’s busiest intersections is also one of its newest food outlets where the philosophy is that simplicity is key and home-made is best.


Specialising in piadinas – a traditional northern Italian flat bread with various fillings – FOLD – food, wine & bakery aims to focus on fresh and unique flavours and a menu curated to include a selection of made-on-site baked goods like cinnamon scrolls, sell-out almond croissants and focaccia, and condiments such as the nostalgia-inducing olive jam.

The piadinas are large but without leaving you with a sickly feeling. They’re cheap (starting at $9.50), the taste is comforting, and they instantly jump up the list of foods you could eat everyday for the rest of your life. Much like a gourmet pizza (yeah, one you’d pay $27 for), FOLD’s eight standard selections include vegetarian, meat choices and a tuna, cherry tomato, rucola and lemon ricotta version. There are also three options for breakfast albeit slight smaller and with ham and free range eggs or avocado, prosciutto, tomato, rucola and provolone. The breakfast piadinas start at $7 and a range of other breakfast classics like salmon, avo and ricotta on rye and toasted brioche are also available. I’ve heard gluten-free options are in the works – I’ll keep you updated.


“Number 6″ – prosciutto, rucola, balsamic syrup and provolone piadina – $12

If flat bread isn’t your thing (it will be, trust me), FOLD also offers light meals like smoked salmon, cucumber and mustard seed dressing or something more substantial from the grill like a red wine and garlic beef or some chicken or salmon that will go down very well when dressed in the aforementioned olive jam ;)


Salmon, cucumber, mustard seed – $16



red salad – $15

The salads are robust and full of colour and life. Take the red salad for example, which features chunky pieces of beetroot, wafer thin crispy pancetta, a generous portion of goats cheese, and balsamic-tinted cabbage for a salty, sweet and bitter hit all at once without overpowering the light piadina.


The wine list is small, for now, and features a well priced, evenly selected range of reds, whites and bubbles with the choice of glasses, carafes and bottles for the reds and whites. Ciders, beer and spirits are also available as is the option to drink outside undercover, as you watch the city fly by on Liverpool Street.


As I dined, walk-ins looking for an after-work drink made themselves comfortable with a glass of prosecco and a mixed plate of meats and cheeses. Priced from $12, the cheese plates include crackers, house-made lavosh, muscatels and once again, that to die for olive jam.


jamon meat plate – $17



The only thing you cannot guarantee at this stage is dessert. I am a dessert fiend and almost always finish my meal with something sweet. Due to the popularity of FOLD during breakfast/brunch/lunch, the baked goods are pretty much all sold out as I dine. A testament to FOLD’s bakers, but a bummer for me. Next time I will get my hands on one of those almond croissants I’ve heard so much about!


FOLD is open now, seven days a week, until 10:00 pm Monday – Saturday and 9:00 pm on Sunday.
