The Perfect Mid Week Brunch, Alex & Co Parramatta

With such a range of venues in Paramatta, Alex & Co takes the prominent position on Church St launching his cocktail bar and restaurant in 2017.

Exactly How Lunch Should Be!

I was lucky to arrive at Alex and Co with a small posse of passionate Sydney foodies & photographers to dine with.

The Posse:

  1. Foodblogs
  2. Lalan Eats 
  3. Food Blogger Australia/

The venue is very so spacious with 600M2 and many seating options from a table of 2, to a full function for all occasions and requirements.

We had a table near the kitchen with lots of natural light and as we sat down, we were taken care of by the friendly staff right from the very first cocktail.

Cocktail List:

INDECENT PROPOSAL / Passionfruit infused vodka, elderflower, fresh lime, egg white, passoa liquer, served with a shot of prosecco. MOJITO / Rum, mint, brown sugar, lime.

I AM DRIVING (Mocktail) / Fresh pineapple & raspberry mixed with citrus, mints, cranberry, fizz.

Following the cocktails came the shared seafood platter.

BBQ SEAFOOD PLATTER

One large shared tray whole lobster, four king prawns, two scallops, whole blue swimmer crab, four battered fried fish, salt & pepper calamari, grilled octopus, chilli garlic white wine mussels, fattoush salad, fries.

Then came the Honey Halloumi.

Honey Halloumi

A sizzling plate of baked honey halloumi, fig, pomegranate, mint salad.

Then came the Pizza.

MARGHERITA 

Tomato, buffalo mozzarella, fresh basil

And to pair with the lamb just in case we weren’t already full enough, a side of the most delicious slow cooked lamb shoulder with all the trimmings.

SIGNATURE LAMB SHOULDER

Four hours braised lamb shoulder, mash, roasted seasonal vegetable, Greek salad, sourdough, lamb jus

Such a great afternoon, such a great venue and what an amazing front of house team and kitchen staff.

A shout out to head Chef Jayne Garcia for being so awesome, Nathan for being just as awesome and to the man Alex for hosting the posse for such a great Hungry Diner experience.

Fact: When studying Hospitality at Ryde Tafe when I was 21 years old, my first job was working as a waiter at an Italian restaurant on Church St, they are still there to this day. Who do you think it is?
