KFC!!! KFC!! KFC!!
By day its a cafe & car wash, By night its a Korean Restaurant - with KFC!! Korean fried chicken for those that don't know ;D
Did not know this place existed until a foodie friend recommended we come here for dinner. It's a weird feeling walking up to car wash and no cars there just the restaurant.
Between six people we ordered :
1/2 fried chicken,
1/2 sweet spicy fried chicken
1/2 soy sauce & garlic fried chicken
1 x Seafood pancake
1 x Soy beef ribs stew
The pancake was nice and crispy and had a good amount of filling. The Chicken! OMG! Delicious KFC. The sweet spicy was not at all spicy so for those that cant handle chilli this is great but for those that want something uber spicy this is not that.
Soy sauce & garlic was damn fine too! The Beef ribs stew was nice to warm us up - the beef sooo tender!
It's nice to see the Parramatta area getting new places to eat - especially fried chicken! Reasonable prices too.
Will definitely be back!
Situated between Via Napoli and Hunters Hill Hotel this trendy little cafe is a winner.
Arrived around 1pm on a Saturday and it wasn't too busy. They have tables out the front near of the shop and round the side in the arcade as well as inside. There is a large communal table or you can seat along the wall.
Staff are friendly and efficient, as soon as we sat down we got water and menus.
I ordered the Dukka chicken $22.50 (Dukka encrusted chicken with quinoa, kale, sweet potato, cherry tomatoes and cabbage) and my niece ordered the junior jaffles with ham & cheese $6.50 the other option was the Nutella and banana but because she was also getting an Oreo shake i think the Ham would of been better suited.
The chicken was amazing! It is quite a filling dish and it took me a while to finish it because i wanted to eat it all! The Oreo shake was also tasty but full on.
I would suggest if you want to get a shake to get it with a small portion of food because it is
quite a generous serving.
Alas there were no dogs to pat that afternoon but Loved my first time experience and I will be back!
There was a deal on for 4 courses with matches wines and a cocktail on arrival $60 = Shut up and Take my money!!
The upstairs area is where we sat - the lighting was very dim. The only bright lights came from the torch on my friends phone and the flash on my camera taking photos hahaha (did not feel guilty at all!)
On arrival we had a verbina sparking cocktail - Smooth and a hint of sweet to get the night going.
To start we had the smoked salmon with wasabi pea, mock caviar and crumbs matched with Dell'uva Arinto 2014 - Enjoyed the wine but thought the dish was a bit salty towards the end.
For main, Lamb neck with hay cream and mushroom sauce matched with Dell'uva Primitivo 2014 - Both the Lamb and the wine went perfectly together. The lamb was so soft and not too overpowering! Just wow!
Next came the Milawa blue with chilli chocolate, quince paste and chicharron ( I had to google chicharron and its pork belly) matched with Dell'uva Graciano 2012 - All the flavours worked very well. The chilli chocolate was great.
Final course was the geranium mousse with tomato soup cake and rhubarb matched with Ad Hills Pinot Noir 2013 - Loved all of it except the rhubarb sorbet - too sour for my liking.
First time visit and will indeed be back to try other items on the menu. Overall, i enjoyed everything and it's an even better experience when you get matched wines with dinner.
I am always a big fan of trying before you buy because you know what you like and most of the times everyone's palate is different.

Arrived about 10.30 on Saturday and the place was packed! The waitress took down my name and said that there would be about a 10 min wait - which wasn't too bad. You may have to flag down a waitress when you are ready to order.
We were seated at the end of a large communal table. I ordered the Return of the Avo on toast and Jen got the Bacon & Egg Roll. We also ordered the Black-ish fried rice to share.
My niece ordered the hot chocolate and the peanut butter and Oreo doughnut...(insert Homer's drooling voice).
My avocado on rye combined with the salsa verde was simple, yet, dang tasty!
The blackish fried rice with chorizo, chilli, garlic, spring onion and fried egg is the bomb! A combination of sweet and salty!
As we were leaving someone had ordered the rice but also added fetta cheese and avocado. Even better combination!
Overall, Great first time visit, will definitely be back again. Coffee was good too!
Arrived about 10.30am on a Tuesday and there were lots of tables to choose from - I guess the weekend would be packed!
Got a piccolo and the Little lost bread and my companion Nick got the Truffle soft serve and matcha latte.
Little lost bread ~ the brioche french toast was all i had hoped for, the centre was warm, texture was soft and everything blended well together. Only thing i would say is that after a while it can get a bit full on but hey i was prepared! I believe this dish would be great to share as it's quite a large serving.
Nick's Truffle soft serve comes at $15 a pop, i'm not a huge truffle fan nor expert but i believe that is reasonable? Considering it was Milk & truffle soft serve with truffle honey and truffle salt! Truffle everything except the cone :D
If you aren't too hungry they have delightful sweet treats on offer to give you that extra boost along with your daily caffeine.
Overall, the experience was lovely, coffee great and friendly staff. I know hope to come by again to try their famous scotch egg!
I like trying new things, visiting new places and going on food adventures. I keep it short, simple and sweet!
