Quick Eats: Paramount Coffee, Sydney

It was my first breath of Sydney air, and we were supposed to go to Grounds of Alexandria. But with the many cars and too long a wait (we were literally just off the plane and hungry from a red-eye flight from Manila to Sydney), we decided to go to a different place. We ended up in Paramount Coffee.

The place has such a hip vibe. Tables of different shapes. Everyone seems to be drinking coffee (well, it is cold). What looks to be a market on the open area, but gone now when we arrived. Counter full of fpastries and other cool stuff. Menu that screamed a little bit of everything. It was that kind of place.

It took us a good 30 minute wait (or more) to be seated. Not sure if that was the norm, but it was quite a while for me. We ended up ordering a couple of croughnuts just to get us by because we were hungry. Finally we were seated and we ordered breakfast burrito, cheese steak sandwich, and my steamed bun.

The portions initially looked small upon serving, but while eating, the portions were just right. And surprisingly, even with the variety in cuisine, everything was also perfectly balanced! I wish I tried their avocado toast, but I was really afraid of going hungry just eating that. The steamed bun, which I had, was a mix of  the right Chinese flavors of sweet and savory, with a sprinkle of peanuts. It was shredded pork on  wide steamed bun folded over. Like a Chinese version of cheese steak.

The burrito is a burrito. Good too. The steak sandwich had its own jus where the bread is to be dipped in. Looked really good but never go to try it. J
