I check out Flying Egg recently which is a cafe located in St Leonards. I've had the pleasure of dining at the owner's other venue in Rydalmere so I had some pretty high expectations given the quality i've experienced before.Flying Egg is located in the forum in St Leonards which is right outside St Leonard's station. As you enter, you can see white exposed brick and brightly lit windows. I like the vibe, the decore is modern, sleek and inviting. Matt and I sit down nearby the big windows so we can enjoy some sunshine.
The owner tells me that the locals are loving their coffees. Matt settles for a Fine Belgium Hot Chocolate ($5) on this occasion and he smiles sweetly at me as he can taste the real legit chocolate. I settle for my usual Chai Latte ($4.5) which is smooth with vanilla tones. I sip the chai latte and start to wake up properly.
So now it's time to eat! First up is the Burger Burger ($20) which is a double wagyu pattie burger with 2 slices of cheddar cheese,tomato, lettuce, dill, gherkins, caramelised onion with a house made sauce and a side of steak cut chips.
This is a two hand job and get ready to bite into those juicy wagyu patties. The house made sauce has a subtle smokey chipotle tones and is almost like a big mac sauce. Matt basically devours this burger and I also really enjoy the crunchy chips. Recommended!
