Cool Mac Cafe Kirribilli NSW

Eggplant Benedict.

This is Cool McCool to me - and reaffirming that after so many years, Australia is still flowering with experimentation, fusion and coming out with delightful culinary results perhaps not so easily found else where. 

Japanese and French disciplines have bloomed some time ago in combination, exchange of techniques and in using the best of ingredients.  What about Japanese or other Asian inspirations with modern Australian?  Here in this seemingly unassuming cafe on the lower end of Burton Street, Kirribilli, on Sydney's lower north shore, something good is happening, even if small and gradually.  Whether for lunch or breakfast, I do find some interesting variations being served here.

Siracha and sesame are used to marinate chicken.   Ramen is cleverly labelled "Cool Men" and there are Kinoko mushrooms on simple toast.   A twist on noodle soups is the green tea flavoured soup, although I am not sure I will go down well on this.  Katsu is provided in a  roll remniscent of Mr Bao at York Street Sydney CBD or at the markets at the Bondi Beach Public School on Saturdays and at the Central Park Markets on Sunday mornings.   Coffee is by Campos.

There can be limited seating on a busy day but you can always take away.   The place is rather upper crust Sydney - I can hear of conversations about returning from New York, performing in London, the glories of running in cold weather and more.  Darling pets wait on the pavement fro their owners.  The cars on the street are Tesla, BMW and Benz. 

The Cool Mac Cafe visited is located at  Shop 2, 34 Burton Street, Kirribilli NSW.
