ACME, Rushcutter Bay - Sydney

ACME is awesoME.
Macaroni, pigs head, egg yolk by ACME

Alright that was lame.

ACME's food however, is far than lame. I visited the small yet sophisticated place with beloved Anna who only came back from the country of -50 degree Celcius. The exterior looks mysterious, while inside you're welcomed by a snug and dim-lighted setting with modern feel.

The baloney sandwich was smaller that we expected but it was still a gem to behold. The crusty yet fluffy bun with the warm baloney (or mortadella) with some tangy smear of tomato sauce was indeed a crowd pleaser.

Baloney sandwich - $5

We had three pasta dishes that night; started with the super aromatic linguine with black garlic and burnt chilli. It was another unassuming-looking dish but the slippery strands of linguine made my heart stand with standing ovation. While the fragrant garlic surrounded my olfactory sense, the tongue was spoiled by the perfectly-cooked pasta, micro crunch from the fried garlic, and feeble hint from the chilli.

Linguine, black garlic, burnt chilli - $12

The second one was the one that I swear I will not, ever, share with somebody ever again. I love Anna but still.

The macaroni with pigs head and egg yolk was undoubtedly the Channing Tatum of the night. It was exceptionally sexy and orgasmic, with the super delicious pieces of the tender pigs head and creamy yolk that enveloped every tube of macaroni.

I would even prefer having a date with this one than to watch Magic Mike XXL. And that says A LOT.

Macaroni, pigs head, egg yolk - $18

We ordered the third pasta dish because we weren't quite full, but the wholemeal malloreddus with drunken chicken and leek failed to outshine the previous ones albeit being enticing with clean taste from the chicken and leek.

Wholemeal malloreddus, drunken chicken, leek - $22

Three choices of desserts and we agreed on this one: malteser ice cream with candied bacon. While I thoroughly enjoyed the malteser ice cream that tasted like liquified malteser, especially with crushed malteser bits, I found there were too much bacon bits that was almost annoying for me.

Malteser ice cream and candied bacon - $10

Yeah, I'm not a fan of bacon in my dessert. Anna, however, did lick every spoonful with a big grin on her face.


Last words? Never, ever, share the macaroni with the pigs head.


Currency: $1 = IDR 9,800

Rating: 4/5 (Recommended)
Great dishes although servings may be a bit small, service is top notch, great and comfortable ambiance, price is reasonable.
