I had gone over board on cheesecakes, inadvertently ordering two for a shared bite after dinner. The situation was salvaged when the cheesecakes were different, both in flavour and bite.
Welcome to the branch of Chef's Palate, located near Jong Jip, in north western Sydney suburbs, that hub of business, dining and shopping called Eastwood. This section of Rowe Street, where many Korean shops congregate, has now taken on a new level of activity and buzz. You can have authentic and Aussie modified Korean cooking here. There are two large groceries that remind you of being in a Seoul suburb. Aldi is housed in a small shopping centre that has more restaurants than other businesses. Whilst Aldi closes early for its supermarket operations, the other retail places open till late.
Staff were engaging and friendly and they are young and bright eyed. The barista that evening invited us in and his work counter is at street frontage. Saturday evening meant many couples and youngster groups out to make the most of a weekend. There is ample seating as the shop goes a deep way in and I reckon there is also a stairs to the first level.
Service is fast and we did not have to wait long. Coffee is not overly strong, has flavour and served hot enough.
Next I aim to try their water melon cakes......
Chef's Palate is also found in Strathfield, NSW.
