When the Comebuy opened inside Parramatta Westfield in early 2017, I was disappointed that they had only their drinks, and not their eggettes, on the menu. They must’ve been taking some time to settle in first as come mid-2017, eggettes were made to order in the usual flavours.
This here is the Red Bean Eggette ($4.50). I’d tried this previously at the Sydney store but lamented that the eggettes were a bit soft and underone, much like the ones you get in Hong Kong. D and I prefer our eggettes to be crispy on the outside, though, so we asked them to cook it a bit longer.
Cooking them just a bit longer gives a beautiful golden brown colour to the eggettes, with a truly crisp outer shell while retaining that soft centre with sweet red beans scattered generously throughout. There’s less moisture content in these eggettes, so they remain crisp even when stored in a paper bag, avoiding the sogginess and doughiness of typical eggettes that tend to be just underdone.
Comebuy is located at Food Court (opposite Pharmasave), Level 5, Westfield Parramatta, 159 – 175 Church St, Parramatta NSW 2150.
