Battered at the Bay, La Perouse (28 Jan 2019)

51 Endeavour Avenue, La Perouse NSW 2036

Chips ahoy in La Perouse

My first time checking out this place which is looking much better than the previous fish and chip shop that used to be here. Calamari and chips ($13) comes with 6 pieces of tender calamari that's prepared right without thankfully any stringy elastic membrane left intact. Good crispy chips. Will definitely need to revisit to try their fish. Parking on the weekends is a big challenge being such a popular area. Service was friendly and under pressure at the time. I thought the order was going to take a while but it came out a lot quicker than expected. Fair amount of seating on the balcony that overlooks towards the beach area. A well located spot for those craving a fish and chips fix.

Bronte Fish & Chips, Bronte (11 Jan 2019)

489 Bronte Rd, Bronte NSW 2024

Thank God It's FryDay

This fish n chip shop is well located for a chip fix. Chips ($8 large) with chicken salt is one of my favourite guilty pleasures after a beach swim. These were pretty good with the right amount of crispy finish to please. Decor of the shop looks quite tired and the service could probably be friendlier and it's cash only. All the usual suspects on the menu and there doesn't seem to be much competition in the area. Across the road is one of my favourite beach pools. Parking in the area is metered except for further up the road.

Baked by 22 Grams, Randwick (9 Jan 2019)

66 High St, Randwick NSW 2031

New bakery by 22 grams

New bakery beginnings by the well established 22 Grams is looking promising just down the road from their cafe with a nice selection of pastries and sourdough to tempt. Cappuccino ($3.50) was good using their house roasted blend. Croissant ($4) had a nice texture and buttery flavour. I reckon go for the morning pick when they'd be even fresher rather than when I visited in the afternoon. On my 2nd visit I confirmed there's a good amount of yummy chocolate in the Chocolate Croissant ($5) and the Almond Croissant ($5) had a lovely crispy texture. I'll definitely need to try the plum danish and sourdough next. Parking is very limited in the area due to the light rail construction in progress just outside. Service was friendly and the decor simple but refined and slick.

Comoros Coffee, Mascot (8 Dec 2018)

Shop 4, 1 Robey St, Mascot NSW 2020

New coffee kids in Mascot

I've been a couple of times now and loving their Cappuccino ($3.50) using Seven Miles Coffee Roasters from Manly Vale. They are aiming to bring boutique roasters on the menu to keep it interesting for the locals. Croissant ($4) with jam is reasonably priced from Luxe Bakery. Babyccino ($0.50) comes with a marshmallow and in a takeaway cup that won't break if dropped. Still and sparkling tap water is available and the fit out is clean and slick. It's a limited menu of pastries and bagels. Service is friendly. On a hot day the space seems to retain the heat with limited airflow from a single door. Free street parking around and a worthy addition for the area I think.
