Staying in Sydney at my sister's place with lil J in tow meant that this visit was different from my previous visits to this city. Instead of shopping at designer stores, I mainly frequented baby stores, and instead of seeing some sights, I explored my sister's neighbourhood...It was a lovely way to experience Sydney. On day 2, we caught up with some friends at her 'local' called 'The Winery', a pub/bar/lounge/restaurant which I absolutely adored! The decor was incredible, the service beautiful (great Brazilian waiter with a gorgeous smile), fabulous food & lychee sangria:
Now this is some beautiful fish & chips! (served with mushy peas & tartare)
Kingfish carpaccio with chilli, lime & ginger
Crispy peppered squid with mint & coriander
Angel hair pasta with Alaskan crab, bisque, tomato, snow peas & crispy shallots
This bird was huge!
Love the cute arquitecture in Surry Hills
And in this neighbourhood is my favourite bakery: Bourke Street Bakery. This time I tried their chocolate & rasberry mousse tarte: DEE-LIGHT-FUL!!!
Caught up with more friends at another pub
Of course I had to take away some tarts, another choc & rasberry mousse tart, some ginger crème brulée tarts and a lemon curd tart. Greedy? Who, me?
