Yummy Sydney Part 2

This is the second part of the blog. During my trip to Sydney, I remembered I ate a lot of Korean and Thai food. Not sure why I stumble upon that kind of food but nevertheless I was satisfied eating them. Desserts; cakes, tim tams, ice creams and gelatos was never missing from my 'what to eat today' lists. I try to consume as much ice creams and cakes as much as possible as I learn from my Melbourne days that Australia has one of the best dairy and confectionery products!

This restaurant is situated in "Castle Tower" in the Baulkham Hills area. It is about 40 minutes drive from the city area. We did some shopping therapy in this mall and had lunch here. I ordered the "Chili Pork" AUD 10.90 and DH ordered "Grilled Pork Belly" AUD 12.50. The food was quite tasty and the big portion sufficiently powered me to walk and shop even further.

The main reason why I came to Sydney was to attend DH sister's wedding. It was a beautiful setting and venue. The Waters Edge was situated at the quay of Darling Harbor and thus the view was surely splendid to the eye. Everyone dressed up to the occasion and the food was simply mouth watering. The day begins with everyone busy preparing getting ready and the night ends with people partying on the dance floor!!!

This is the Thai Restaurant that I bragged about in the previous post (part 1). "In Chan" is situated on the Kingsford Street, just along Kingsford Chinese Restaurant. One of the most things that amazed me was that the cook in the kitchen were very young. Probably in the late 20's. I also assume that this is a family run restaurant, because almost all of the worker there looked alike. The next time I come back to Sydney, I'll definitely pop myself back in here again and order more dishes for sure!

> Yum Ped yang AUD 16.90
> BBQ Beef Crying Tiger AUD 15.90

That day, a few of us went to the Star City Casino and try out our luck and as it turns out, we had good luck on our side! I won AUD 1200 and DH's dad won even much much more. Thus as for dinner, we decided to splurge more because in a way it was complimentary from Star City. We had exotic Kangaroo's meat, duck salad, tom yum soup, curry seafood soup (turns out to be the star of the meal) and many others.

I wanted to eat at "CHAT THAI" in the city but the queue was just crazy to be true. Instead we went for Vietnamese Beef Noodle Soup at "PHO PASTEUR". The restaurant was pretty busy when we were there during the peak dinner hour. I had a "Grilled Pork With Vermicelli AUD 9.00" and DH had "Special Beef Rice Noodle Soup AUD 11.00" and as for our starter, we choose to have fried spring rolls to share.
