Fountain, Darlinghurst Road

Fountain on Darlinghurst Road is next to the El Alamein Fountain and the Kings Cross police station. There's a paddy wagon parked outside the cop shop sitting on the footpath so that you can't possibly miss it. Inside the cafe, you can sit next to the window. I had the Fountain duck fat hash, which is latkes (potato cakes) cooked in duck fat and stacked on the plate with interleaved layers of smashed avocado, finely chopped tomato and bacon. There's also an egg on top.

It's a filling meal and the coffee is good. You can see past the fountain to the local street markets, where people come to shop. We wandered down to Potts Point a bit then turned back and made our way up to Victoria Street and on to Oxford Street. Everywhere you looked in Darlinghurst today there seemed to be police cars cruising by. There were uniformed officers on foot on Oxford Street and further down on Liverpool Street also. Cop city weekend!
