Great food any time of the day or night

Can a restaurant be open early till late, provide catering and room service, and still have great service, delicious food and a welcoming atmosphere? TwentyTwo Cafe Bar & Grill proves they can! As one of very few places in Western Sydney offering breakfast, lunch, dinner, catering AND room service daily, Norwest’s TwentyTwo Cafe Bar & Grill is kept on their toes providing a great food experience at any time of the day or night.

Rolls Sandwiches wrapsOpen since November 2012 the independently owned and operated establishment is located on the Ground Floor of the Adina Hotel and Apartments in Norwest Business Park. In late 2014 it came under the new management of Hong Yin who’s Dolce Espresso Bar in Oatley won Best Coffee Shop at the St George Small Business Awards in 2009, 2010 & 2011. Hong’s winning formula comes from a desire to make people happy. Hong works alongside his staff and nurtures them to his own standards in order to achieve that.

TwentyTwo Cafe Bar & Grill offers plenty of seating inside and on the outdoor covered deck, and the indoor high ceilings present a very open and airy feeling. The bikes found on the walls provide a unique feature to creatively fill the high ceiling space, and the dark wood tables set off the bright red and yellow metal chairs. Street parking can be a bit of a challenge on a weekday but there are a good number of spaces behind the hotel that you are welcome to use.

The menu is modern Australian which includes a lot of cultural and current influences, and is regularly updated with new and popular items. As well as an extensive menu with lots of variety, the place is licensed to offer you a great range of wines, beers and cider and provide a great cocktail menu! Cocktail Happy Hour is not only available every day, its TWO hours long – between 4pm and 6pm – when you’ll get their normally priced $15 cocktails for only $8! In the hot beverage department, you can be assured of a great coffee as the team roast their own beans to ensure consistency and freshness.

Bircher Muesli with Apple and HazelnutsFor breakfast I can recommend the Bircher Muesli with Apple and Hazelnuts. This generous serving will come with surprise seasonal fruit, on my occasion it was fresh apricots and figs. The Smoothies are utterly delicious and a meal all of their own. You can taste the use of real fruit, and yoghurt is delightfully sweet and creamy. For those preferring a hot breakfast, the Baked Eggs Tagine with chorizo, capsicum, onion, roasted tomato and baby spinach served with toasted bread is sure to satisfy the adventurous appetite, while the simple Bacon and Egg roll is anything but, with the inclusion of baby spinach, roma tomatoes and aioli on a seeded roll.

Lunch includes assorted sandwiches of Lebanese, Turkish or Piadina Bread, Pasta, Soup, Salads and Share Plates of anything from Buffalo Wings to Mezze Dips, Aranchini to Lamb Kaftas. The Slider Beef Burgers served in brioche with vine ripe tomato and BBQ aioli taste just like a traditional burger should – patties of high quality beef cooked medium with perfectly grilled onions on a sweet brioche bun with a creamy BBQ sauce, lettuce and tomato. These mini bites of heaven are great to share, but even better to enjoy all on your own washed down with your favourite beer or cider.

The Share Plates are also available for dinner along with Gourmet Burgers, Steaks and Schnitzels. One of the latest items on the menu is the Salad of Chargrilled Mediterranean Lamb with warm Chickpea Couscous topped with Labneh. Very substantial and filling for a salad the lamb is cooked tender and layered on the couscous with a base of baby spinach. The flavoursome Labneh yoghurt garnished with mint leaves really sets off this dish which is still being perfected. After chatting with Peter, we both agree the couscous needs an extra burst of flavour, and so they will look at adding some fresh chilli or spices over the coming weeks to get the taste just right.

Whether you’re looking for a great value work lunch, a coffee on the run, catering for your next business function or a relaxed weekend brunch, TwentyTwo Cafe Bar & Grill has it all! The great food, fine coffee, fresh and leafy atmosphere provide a relaxed change from the everyday, and even during business hours, is blissfully free from any hustle and bustle.
