Eat, Sydney / 12 March 2024

Dive into a world of Filipino flavours at this new Marrickville cafe.

Marrickville’s vibrant cafe scene has a new resident, and it’s bringing a taste of the Philippines straight to your plate. Tita Carinderia, opened by the team behind the beloved Donut Papi, is a warm and inviting space celebrating Filipino comfort food.

Gone are the days of searching for a decent silog thar garlic rice and egg with your choice of protein in Sydney’s Inner West. Tita Carinderia offers a delicious selection of these classic Filipino breakfast plates, featuring longganisa sausage, tapa (cured beef), and tocino (sweet cured pork belly). Each silog comes with the familiar tang of pickled green papaya and a comforting side of mixed vegetables.

But Tita Carinderia is more than just the morning staples. Their playful take on Filipino cuisine extends to their unique breakfast sandwiches. Forget your standard English muffin – here, fluffy pandesal (a slightly sweet bread roll) serves as the base for a delightful combination of sweet and savoury fillings. Choose from the longganisa sausage with egg, cheese, and banana ketchup, or a classic spam, egg, and cheese combo. Vegetarian options like a plant-based longganisa with hash browns ensure there’s something for everyone.

For those with a sweet tooth, Tita Carinderia is a haven. The Donut Papi crew brings their expertise to the table with an array of Filipino-inspired pastries and desserts. Be sure to try the bibingka basque cheesecake, a delightful fusion of Filipino rice cake and burnt Basque cheesecake, or indulge in the vibrant purple ube (yams) in various forms – from soft serve to lamingtons and even an affogato.

The atmosphere at Tita Carinderia is as warm as the food itself. Sunny yellow walls and bright oilcloth-covered tables create a cheerful ambience, perfect for a relaxed weekend brunch or a casual catch-up with friends.
