12 Xiangyang Bei Lu

There’s fresh blood in the kitchen at the small-but-mighty Xiangyang Bei Lu café. Egg has trundled along quite blithely with its avocado toast and coconut cold brew, but owner Camden Hauge has brought in Jamie Pea

to head up the café’s kitchen. First order of business? A refresh of the menu. The ethos remains the same with local ingredients at the fore, but with reinvigorated spirit. The menu changes regularly, featuring items like taro hash browns, egg and cheddar on a sesame-scallion shaobing and avocado toast (of course) brightened up with peas and mint.
