On my walk home from work yesterday, I discovered that Veronica was in town… after a few messages, it was decided that I was to head into the city to meet up with her and Anne for dinner :)
First stop, the Meriton Apartments on Pitt, where Kellogg’s were putting up Veronica and a couple of other bloggers ahead of an event today. The penthouse suite, nothing less :p
Then we wandered down to Chinatown, past places I know, getting my Sydney bearings!!! :)
Nine Dragons was where we had dinner. I “needed” to have sang choy bau, so I was indulged ;) This was yum :)
We all went soup for dinner – mine the combination soup with rice noodles. It was nice, but I would have preferred to pay $10 rather than $20 for it!
Lovely night :) Anne offered me a lift home, which I took, and again, I remembered more landmarks and places on the way home :)
And I was toting around my birthday present from Rish :) A Crowded Teeth bag :)
I ate so much in my recent Sydney expedition. Korean was also on the list. A place called Seoul-Ria in Chinatown. We were meant to go with a much larger group, but seven of us were tardily drinking at 3 Monkeys, and so wandered up about an hour after everyone else. Sorry guys! We’re not good at rushing :)
We order two huge steamboat type things. Both were yummy yummy with meats, and tofu and veges gallore!
A couple of the guys decided part way into their meal that they wanted beer, and so I decided I wanted wine. After finding people to share with me, we ordered a plum wine – that ended up having gold flakes in it! I’ve seen sparkling wines with gold before, but not plum wine. It had a taste that reminded us all of our childhood. Cough mediciney… but not in an unpleasant way…
