Mentaiko Pasta at Double Cross Espresso Bar, Crows Nest
It takes a lot to be able to convince Noods to make the trek across the Bridge but just the mention of Mentaiko Pasta ($16) and he grabbed the car keys quick smart and off we went to Double Cross Espresso Bar in Crows Nest. Mentaiko is made by brining and seasoning fresh pollack (or cod roe) and is something we’d fallen in love with in Japan and have been obsessively searching for ever since. I took great joy in stabbing the gooey 63˚C egg and letting its golden innards run freely, coating each strand of pasta. There’s also a dollop of creme fraiche and mixing everything together created one creamylicious pasta that is right up there in my top 5 pastas in Sydney.

Souffle Omelette at Double Cross Espresso Bar, Crows Nest
The Soufflé Omelette ($16) is ridiculously light and fluffy. The french style omelette has ricotta cheese folded through and it’s like eating a freaking cloud man! I’d order this again but next time I’d add a side of bacon or mushrooms for a salty kick.
