Sydney for yummy Chinese BBQ, rice noodle dumplings and fire alarms

Okay, so we really went down for Cirque du Soleil Ovo, but the highlight of any Sydney trip is gorging on decent Chinese food… mmmm…. At two of the Emporer’s Garden locations, and yummy as usual :D

Aaron's Hotel Haymarket

We stayed the night at Aaron’s hotel, Haymarket, which I think about $120 for the night on Wotif. An older hotel, with a rickety lift, step in odd places, a skylight in the room that let light in WAY too early, and a fire alarm that got us all out of bed before we wanted to be because it goes off sometimes with the steam from the showers.

But the shower was hot and the bed very comfortable.

I’d stay there again, it’s amazingly located right next to Market City, but this time with an eye mask. And maybe earplugs so the fire alarm wouldn’t wake me :/

I’ve been to Mr Chao’s Seafood twice for yum cha this year already. Nom nom nom.

The first time was with Rish’s dad, who kept picking different things to my usual “Steamed rice noodle creations” selection
