paramount coffee project.

Wow! It's been almost half a year since I last posted and I am truly very very sorry about that.  There are no excuses.  Delicious food does not wait for anybody and I had promised to be the bearer of food news.  My apologies, please forgive me.  Luckily for you I've got quite a back log of food posts just waiting to be posted so without further ado, let's move on!

Paramount Coffee Project was one of those places which burst onto the brunch scene with overwhelming popularity a few years ago and it seems that the force is still going strong.  My church is just around the corner from the busy cafe and it seems like every time we drive past, there are small crowds just antsy to get in.   My group of three decided to hit the urban/industrial/chic brunch spot on a Sunday morning and were seated outside among the share tables.

It's a sad goodbye to the famous Billy Kwong but a happy and frantically-waving hello to Besser - a new Italian eatery opened up by the same team from A Tavola in Darlinghurst.  It has only been open for two weeks but it's definitely gaining traction as the new place to be on Crown Street in Surry Hills.  Since it is literally across the street from my home church, I didn't really have any excuse not to try it out.

My fellow eating companion and I walked in on Sunday afternoon and were seated at the window.  It's always a bit weird to be sitting in front of the window.  I always try to tell myself that everyone walking past is not staring at me as I try to maintain some dignity while scoffing down my delicious meal when deep down I know that, yes...they are.

tim ho wan.

I rarely ever cover Chinese food on this blog, mainly because there aren't that many Chinese restaurants which really peak my interest.  Tim Ho Wan, however, is an exception.  Boasting a very coveted Michelin star and having expanded world-wide, it almost seemed unforgivable if I didn't give it a go.
