Comebuy, Parramatta

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.
