Word on the street is: 2pm is scone o’clock week days at Bangbang. Pull up a shiny, silver drum stool as they pull out fluffy, buttery lemonade Scones ($4.50) from the oven. They’re possibly the best scones I’ve tried, accompanied by butter, whipped cream, and hand-made Jam Lady Jam.
On hot days I’d wash them down with a Stolen Recipe Iced Tea ($3.90). Most other days I’d watch the feathers dance on the muscular, tattooed arm of latte art champion Phil Capdor; he makes a lovely Campos Coffee too.
Now I’ve already waxed lyrical about DJ Alan Thompson’s homely UK brekkies (read about it HERE), and the crack-like appeal of his tatty scones on the Scottish Brekkie ($13.50), so it’s partially my fault weekends are booming.
But as the Bugaboo clique with designer prams have discovered, this is the ideal place to enjoy a quiet mid-week lunch – with the added attraction of watching uber-cool Surry Hills staff fawn over your small folk. To eat I’d recommend the generously proportioned Wagyu Burger ($12.90) with demure crisps (how British);
...or the Posh Fish Finger Sanga ($12.50) for a nostalgic trip back to the childhood you never had, because these freshly breaded Flathead fillets don’t come out of a packet!
