I headed there on a Wednesday morning with Stephanie and it was quite packed already but thankfully we easily got a seat. We took our seat and started going through the menu. Instantly the waffles already caught my attention but it was the decision between sweet and savory.
In the end I went with the savory, Coca Cola Ox Cheek Waffle with Hush Puppies & Steph got their Elvis in Cuba with Chicharan. As for drinks since I ended up with the savory waffles I decided to get their Peanut Butter and Jelly milkshake whereas Steph got their Business and Pleasure.
The Coca Cola Ox Cheek Waffle: corn & tomato salsa, horse radish mayo, coriander. (AUD$19)-I loved all the flavors and textures of this dish! Simply amazing and beautiful to fill my stomach up in the morning. On the other hand I didn't enjoy the hush puppies all that much, so the next time I can definitely do without those and the side of bacon...I was expecting the crispy sort you know, so I was a tad bit disappointed.
The Elvis in Cuba: kimchi, bacon, kewpie, swiss cheese, onion rings. (AUD$19)-This dish was uniquely stacked and the kimchi added that extra hint of spiciness. I loved how this went really well with the Chicharan (crackling pork skin!).
The Business & Pleasure: espresso & shaken iced almond latte. (AUD$8)- Stephanie let me sip on the two drinks separately and I'm not a huge fan of the almond milk. She decided combine them into one cup (since the staff said it was possible) but it just curdled and Stephanie didn't feel too well after drinking it.
The Peanut Butter & Jelly Milkshake:(AUD$8)-This drink was heavenly! but I do have to warn you that it will get to that sickly sweet stage so definitely have some water on the table to wash your palette out.
The Paramount Coffee Project Ratings:
Their menu is not the largest but there's enough dishes to choose from making it slightly easier (not really, they all sound so good!).
The prices are a tad overpriced but the flavors and portions are guaranteed.
Customer Service: ★☆☆☆☆
Absolutely terrible! I felt like they didn't really care much about us the whole time. It took a while for them to notice that we wanted to order or get the bill. Needs improvement for sure!
I really enjoyed the food here but the service is not the best I must say. Some of the staff can be quite rude (pretending to not see you, etc.) so that put me off before my food had arrived.
-DAILY UPDATE 070714-
Today went out for breakfast with dearie Stephanie again~ Spent a small amount today on purchasing some gymming goods! It helps motivate me to get moving again! Until then I'll keep you guys posted on my food adventures!
P.S. I just realized all the photo's on my camera have been food and not selfie's....hence no photo's of me in this post whatsoever~ Next time maybe, if I remember.
