    Default Back from Sydney, food pics and reviews.

    Well, not all in this post, but certainly over the next couple of days.

    The food tastings in Sydney were many and varied....... not all good,
    but not all bad.

    As I was staying near Chinatown, it was natural to partake of a fair bit
    of oriental fare. For the most part it was same-same at basically any
    Oriental joint you go to anywhere in the western world.

    One standout though was the Nine Dragons Chinese restaurant in Dixon St,
    Haymarket, where we went for Yum Cha on the Friday. No Yum Cha carts in
    sight, so we ordered our dishes off the Yum Cha menu and they were made
    fresh for us.

    We certainly had our seafood fix that day!!

    There's also a little Chinese bakey down the other end of Dixon St,
    (opposite Paddy's Market) inside the mall area........ absolutely bloody
    delicious stuff they make, and they're about $1 cheaper per item than
    other bakeries in the area, eg, egg custard tarts were $1.20 there, and
    $2.30 in Barbies on Goulburn....... the coconut buns were worlds apart
    as well. Barbies was a sweet bun with coconut icing, the little bakery's
    was like a coconut swirl with the coconut mixed into the dough.


    More to come.......... especially about the top of the range places like
    Rockpool and Doyles on the Beach.

    So the only difference between our Dim Sum and your Yum Cha is the tea
    drinking. We'll have to talk to my wifes' friend who owns a Cantonese
    resturant, and see if they have it here as well.

    So what did you think of the cow offal + wontan with boiled noodles
    tossed in black soya sauce? Or did you have the soup version?

    I tried to stick to non-offal items, and nothing was 'tossed' in soy-sauce,
    unless I dipped it myself.
