The Bucket List
Spend your holiday in another country will be incomplete if you don’t visit the beach. Hear the surf and feel the heat of the afternoon sun on the soft and fine sands. Or simply hopped onto nearby cafe for a quick lunch. Thick, moist and flaky NZ hake fillet in thinly beer battered and crispy fries tartare with a glass of icy cold beer. can’t be any better to kickstart the weekend.

The elegant barramundi is de-boned, baked and stuffed with diced prawn and vegetables. The barramundi had a mildly sweet taste with a delicate texture. Added a twist of Thai red coconut curry sauce and served with a bowl of steamed rice.
Whole baked barramundi at AUD38.

A cup of hot coffee may well be the best way to start the day. Recommended by a Sydney foodie. Indeed quality cup of coffee.

Value for money Japanese food. A good alternative if you wish to give Sydney Fish Market a miss!

There are plenty of Messina outlets in Sydney. My favourite outlet remains at Rosebery (HQ). The gelato is smoother and melts fast than others. My top choices are honeycomb (new flavour) and pistachio (standard flavour).

Perfect fried potato hash browns with poached eggs and salad. Hidden gem!

The matcha soft serve has a smooth and creamy with an intense matcha flavour. To balance off, have some nice chewing mochi balls.
Address: Regent Place or World Square
Dark and savoury house sauce that infuses the ground brisket with tons of flavours. The big slab of beef is topped with pickles, onions and melted cheese. Not forgetting the generous serving of crispy fries. They are strategically placed on a shovel (instead of the usual plate) making the burger look as appetising as possible.

The best dessert – Snow Egg, a poached meringue egg.
There is no ala carte menu and you had to order a set meal starting from 3-figure. The food menu is not as impressive as this dessert.

We were here for sashimi and found another gem here! Must try the beef wagyu skewer with caramelised shallots in BBQ teriyaki sauce. The smoky meat was very tender with tasty burnt ends. It’s so addictive that one skewer is not enough.

Can’t say no to live sea urchin, sweet scampi and meaty lobster.

Sydney Fish Market, Pyrmont, NSW 2009,
Featuring the famous confit of Tasmania ocean trout. Ocean trout might look like salmon, but it has a taste all its own. It has an excellent firm texture and the flavour was subtle. A mix of salad of witlof and apple adds refreshing interest and seasoning that adds savoury interest.

The Rocks Cafe
Char-grilled crocodile patty with watercress, tomato, roasted garlic aioli and served on brioche with crispy fries. It might be one of the most unusual burgers but tasted similar to what we usually eat. The crocodile patty was very lean, tasted like chicken breast to me. It was well-marinated and flavourful, there isn’t any unpleasant taste in the mouth.
Crocodile burger at AUD26.
If you have seen my previous post on Crocodile Burger, we’ve also tried Kangaroo Burger. Char-grilled kangaroo patty with rocket leaves, tomato, red onion, cheese, beetroot relish and roasted garlic aioli. The kangaroo patty had a tough texture with an unfamiliar taste. Unfortunately, the beetroot relish did not help to mask the gamey smell which I cannot stand it. This is gonna be the first and the last time for kangaroo burger.

Two Good Eggs Cafe
Love the fresh avocado spread on sourdough with poached eggs, hollandaise, spinach and choice of bacon, ham or mushroom. A very generous serving of delicious bacon, juicy mushroom and the fun moment of slicing into the egg and seeing the river of golden yolk flow.

“Please resolve any disputes over dessert-sharing amicably + fairly” written on the menu. And I understand this statement after the first mouthful. There are eight choices of dessert to choose from. Medjool date shortcrust tart with fig syrup, Chantilly cream, pistachio ice cream. I am amazed by the taste after the first spoon. The Medjool was very soft and sweet and the smooth salty pistachio ice cream in every bite giving your mouth a taste of dessert heaven. Even my boyfriend who is an avowed date hater has been convinced by it.
This is part of a course meal.
