Paco Organico Cronulla NSW


Granola, pancakes, fruits, omelettes, porridge..... Paco Organico seems to project some healthy stuff especially for breakfast and brunch sessions, but really Paco assumes a gradual changing personality as the evening approaches.  Burgers, chips and salads appear at lunch time.   Wine selections look pretty standard but reflect the casualness of the place.

A slow braised lamb salad caught my eye , together with the chicken Quinoa salad.   The offerings are not complex, go straight forward with a minimum of fancy and perhaps try to reflect a balance in nutrition and fun for customers.

The location is good, being at the top end of the mall furthest away from the station and walkable up the main road, Kingsway, from South Cronulla Beach.   It is spacious outside the cafe but inside is a usual narrow but deep layout.   The blackboard written menu seems limited but the coffee is reliable and good.    The table menus do cover breakfasts of Benedicts, Spanish ingredients, vegetarian, bananas, avocados, Fetta  and Haloumi slices.

From noon, the delight is in the share boards  - salmon, calamari, olives, chicken Pate and Jalapeno bread stand up.

The cocktail list from Friday to Sunday evenings is more promising with accents on tropical fruits, chocolate and Martinis.   Paco Loco is an update on the Long island iced tea with touches of coconut water and cloudy apple juice.  The Bolly Bellini has sparkling wine and lychee juice in a flurry with a puree of both raspberry and peach  - light and easy!

Paco Organico is located at the Cronulla Mall at Shop 6/30 Kingsway in Cronulla NSW.   
Opening hours are from 6am to 4pm from Mondays to Wednesdays and from 6am to 11 pm from Thursdays to Sundays.

85 Degrees Bakery Cafe Hurstville NSW

There are several outlets of this bakery cafe for several years now in Australia.  Did they coem from the USA?

Each franchised outlet is in a busy area, often in suburbs so-called by a diverse Asian demographic.   The one in Hurstville is rather roomy and lots of baked stuff on its shelves.   The base of Sydney operations is in Chester Hill, a suburb south-west of the Sydney city centre.

Some of the cake creations would be viewed as rather leaning on the East Asian dimension  - Strawberry Angel (with chocolate base and top) and Mango Cheese ( with yoghurt).   However, to counter this perspective, there are also Death by Chocolate, US Cheesecake, Coffee Brulee and Blueberry Marble options.    

The pastries are definitely filled with ingredients more suited to perhaps Anime loving fans and non-mainstream cultures - for example, garlic, pork, tuna, green tea, red bean, shallots, pork floss, coconut, Hokkaido butter cream and Boroh or pineapple buns.   Sung seems to be a variation emphasised…

Penang - Lor Mee

Lor mee is another of those street foods that are not commonly available in Western societies, but are easily found in southern China, Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore. The dish is iconic of the Teochew Province in China and has been mainly brought to equatorial climes by immigrants over the last few centuries. It combines snippets of ingredients in a thick savoury sauce. Above, the lor mee with roast pork and sliced hard boiled egg accompaniments at the Fong Sheng Cafe, along Lorong Selamat in Georgetown, Penang - the place was introduced by May Wah and Henry Quah.

The cafe harks back to the seventies or eighties - and maybe earlier - what caught my eye were (above) freshly blended fruit and/or vegetable juices and (below) metal and plastic contraptions of the food trade.

Hot and cold drinks are easily on offer from the cafe (above and below) at very reasonable prices.

Another version of the dish (below) taken whilst Bob Lee was enjoying them in another cafe or coffee shop in Georgetown…
