Bangbang Espresso Bar and Cafe, Surry Hills

Bangbang on Reservoir.
Surry Hills is the place to be. The place is teeming with restaurants, cafes, and other foodie finds. It's my go-to place during breaks in between classes and day-outs as well.

So Bangbang opened sometime in 2009 and it's been thriving since then. It's owned by some renowned Brit DJ, and all over the cafe there's that street, retro hip vibe.

Got to love that tomato container.
Kitsch & Quirky
They're known for their breakfasts but it's such a shame since it wasn't an all-day affair like I was expecting. They had a very casual and relaxed lunch menu that's just typical of a cafe offering burgers, sandwiches, and salads with slight tweaks and modifications.

Cheesy Cheesy Bangbang Burger- $15
Wagyu beef patty with provolone, cheddar, parmesan,
rocket, gherkins, dijon, and tomato & chili relish.
I asked the staff for his recommendation and he said it had to be the Bangbang burger. That's happens to be the most popular item on the lunch menu and reading the description off the menu was enough to make my mouth all watery.

Deconstructed now.
It was definitely, positively YUM.
In fact, the description of the burger was honestly what turned up on the plate. Honest to goodness tasty. I know it might not be the best way of putting it, but it was like a Maccas burger high on steroids- only in the most scrumptious way. The burger patty was spiced crazy but it balanced very well with the rest of the burger. The best thing on there was the relish which was the relish which was jammy, sweet, and tingly. Awesome, awesome, awesome. 

Fish Finger Sarnie- $12.90
Freshly breaded flathead fillets with cos lettuce, and
Bangbang coarse and soft sourdough
Adara had the sarnie and she highly commended it. I had a bite of the fish and it was absolutely unlike any other fish finger you've ever had. It's crunchy, ridiculously crunchy. It was just at the point of cooked making it sweet and juicy.

Cap- $3.90

Chocolate Crackles.
To top everything off, I had to have my usual skim cap. It was strong and frothy. Perfect way to end the meal. Adara has a sweet tooth, she has to have dessert. She reminds me of Robyn.  She had the chocolate crackles that packed a loud crunch.

Board with the specials.

To the plenty awesome lunches and tasty burgers to come!
