Sydney Eats

Was in Sydney earlier in the week and was tasked by ahyong to check out the makan scene. I arrived at about 8am and was trawling the city by about 10am, most makan shops were still closed. However there was this little vietamese noodle diner on George Street called City Noodles (I think it was) and since it was a cold and wet day thought I'd start this hard work with a hot beefy soup....beef pho.... compared with the pho..s I have had before elsewhere, this pho was so so....

Was also tasked to look for some serving plates, so while roaming the shops stumbled on Myers which was having some kind of gila gila sale...something like 30-50% sale...settled for some fine looking and cheap maxwell and williams whatchamicallit....

special beef pho

Sea food laksa

Cholesterol....
Passing the sussex center in china town dropped by a noodle stall famous for visits by local and foreign chef dignitaries who recommend their signature laksa......This is one stall that is a must go for me whenever I visit sydney....to attempt to describe the laksa is to do injustice.....
While enjoying the seafood laksa, I struck up a conversation with a very dintinguished looking gentleman who was originally from Malaysia..seremban to be exact...He was having an interesting looking bowl of noodles from the same noodle stall...which comprised of pork slices and innards in a broth which is called campin soup

Sea food buffet

After all that hard work, I had to do some more food sampling at the hotel with the sea food buffet......yabbies, crawfish, rock oysters, prawns, crabs.......its a hard life...

Airline Chow - hors d'oeuvres

Airline Chow - Braised lamb shanks

On the flight back had to settle for the regular airline chow.......its a tough life........
