Cafe Long Shot Beecroft NSW

Owners Daniel and Melissa Farr have a busy cafe going on the weekend arvo we visited.   The staff are young and abuzz with work.   I do love the burgers here and they can be wholesome plus yummy.   The pumpkin wedges are a good idea that stands out.   There are hand crafted cakes, looking colourful and inviting.   Vehicle parking is not that hard for the shopping centre has provided that, although at rush hour one has to be patient, in this corner of a north-western Sydney suburb.

Coffee is Morgan's.  Why head down to Surry Hills or Balmain when you can have all this nearby from home?   This cafe is not to be confused a similar name sake in the Melbourne Docklands.   The brunch and breakfast menu is comparable to what I find in many of Wollongong's better barista cafes but the crowd in Beecroft can be of a different variety.   Maybe it is after Saturday morning activity for the kids and the older folks here look more reserved.  

We sampled the vegan lemon cheesecake and it was elegantly made, was rewarding and not too strong.  I would return for the burgers....

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…
