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
BBQ Duck and Pork
BBQ Pork with rice noodle
Garlic and Prawn
Cha sieu pao
Contemplating my tea
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 :/
Ahh, Old faithful Yum Cha at Emperor’s Garden on the corner in Sydney’s Chinatown.
A selection of rice-y goodness, which set us back just shy of $40 for the three of us.
With some BBQ Pork Buns for Rish
And cream filled mango pancakes for Pnut.
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
Including teeny tiny fish.
Mmm steamed goodness!
And, of course, the rice noodle prawns!
Okay, so I may have overdone the dumplings on Sunday at Marigold yum cha. :D
