Double Cross Espresso: Asian fusion cafe in Crows Nest

Double Cross Espresso is a Crows Nest cafe serving Edition Coffee with an Asian-fusion menu. We came here for brunch on a Saturday morning, keen to try out their creative and unique dishes.

For our drinks, we ordered the taro latte served hot and hojicha latte served cold. These were both delicious, I liked how the taro flavour was not strong, but rather light and milky.

For our mains, we ordered the Mentaiko pasta with marinated fish roe, 63 degrees egg, chives, Creme fraiche and tobiko. This is one of their signature dishes, I loved the fusion of the East and the West. The pasta was perfectly marinated and the creme fraiche added a nice richness to it. I am normally not a fan of a lot of fish roe but did not mind it on this dish.

Next we ordered the Creme brûlée French toast with mascarpone custard and mixed berry compote. I love a good french toast and this did not disappoint, the mascarpone custard was nice and creamy and perfectly contrasted by the tartness of the mixed berry compote.

We also ordred the Tonkatsu tamago Sando pork Katsu sandwich. I have tried a few versions of this at different cafes but this one is definitely up there with the others. The pork katsu was perfectly cooked and well marinated and I really enjoyed the egg. It was simple but as good as a sandwich can get.

Overall, Double Cross is a great cafe addition to the food scene in Crows Nest, offering both standard cafe dishes and Asian fusion dishes. Definitely try if you are in the area and keen for a little experimentation!
