B.R.A.T @ Bangbang, Surry Hills

I was told that an award winning international DJ by the name of Alan Thomson opened Bangbang café in June 2009. I heard that his love for Tarantino films and Nancy Sinatra’s ‘bangbang’ from Kill Bill is what inspired the name. The first thing I noticed when I walked in was the oversized headphones with cord crawling along the walls, I thought this was ultra cool. Unfortunately, I forgot to take a photo of this so you will have to trust me on this ‘ultra cool’ design!

I came here with B, a fellow food lover whom I have missed dearly. If you think I am continuously hungry, you have not met my friend, B! She eats, I kid you not, every two hours! Starting with breakfast and all the way to supper! She has one fast metabolisms, however, ‘The Mother’has a faster metabolism!

We both started with strong black coffee (Campos coffee) with milk on the side. The black coffee was seriously bitter, I had to put a lot of milk in it to dilute the bitterness (I know, that’s a sin, but it was seriously bitter!). I don’t like my coffee sweet, so sugar was not an option.

B had the chicken breast with tomato, avocado and rocket on sourdough, it did come with aioli but can you believe she asked without aioli? My dear girl! She thought the filling was so so but loved the bread, and so she should, as the bread is Sonoma bread.

I couldn’t pass the B.R.A.T;  bacon, rocket, avocado and trust tomatoes with aoili on sour dough. Bacon and aioli – I really don’t have to say much more. The sourdough bread was fresh, and was not toasted, the bacon hot and the aoili was great compliment!

It had me at B.R.A.T that I didn’t see pass that.  I have heard that their wagyu burger is their specialty, well priced and reasonable but I simply couldn’t go pass bacon and aioli. Both sandwiches was served in a little basket with a handful of chips, making it very ‘British’ like.

I didn’t realise at the time, but the chairs we sat on we actually drummer chairs! No wonder, they felt a little ‘weird’.

The food at bangbang is quite simple and well priced. I have heard that their breakfast is tremendous, so another visit is definitely in order.

It was great catching up with B, oh how, I miss you my dear girl! I can’t wait to eat my way around Sydney with you again.
