It is the Euro Champions League Final tonight (Yes, Food Bloggers watch soccer too!) so I shall keep the words short tonight and let the pictures do the talking. Some leftover photos from my Sydney trip earlier this year.

Entrance of The Sebel, Pier One, venue for the wedding - right under the Harbour Bridge

Entrée of Chilled Prawns, Smoked Salmon, Saffron Aioli

Sides - Oven Roasted Baby Potatoes

Main of Barramundi, Bok Choy and Chilli Crab Sauce

Main of Grain Fed Sirloin Steak, Sauce Bernaise and Roasted Kipfler

Makoto Sushi Bar, Most Delicious Meal of the trip IMHO

Green Tea

Mixed Sushi Platter is OMG Wonderful!!!

Spider Roll

Fisherman's Soup - Crab, Yabby & Mussels

Oscar Cafe, undergoing some renovation

Cesar Salad with Chicken Cutlet

Hawaiian Pizza

Cafe across Coogee Beach


Two things I cannot resist in Australia - One of them is Cheese

The other is Chocolate!!!

Topped it off with a Chocolate Milk Shake!!

My friend brought me to this place for Burger

This is Kamara Chips (Sweet Potato) with Aioli Dip

Ford Freakout -
⅓ lb Ground Beef, Bacon, Avocado, Salad, Relish and Aioli

Situated right under the Distinctive Coca Cola Neon Board, any idea where this is?

Kings Cross Road, the infamous Red Light District of Sydney :)

Can you let us know what you thought of the food at The Sebel, Pier One? The hotel looks stunning and has a great location - but I've never known anyone who's eaten there...

(Chilli Crab Sauce over the top of Barramundi sounds - and looks - sensational)

Hey Steve,

Let's just say the view was better - heh! But if you really wanna know, the Barramundi was the lesser of the two evils as compared to the Grain Fed Sirloin Steak (FYI, it was served in medium to medium well).

I reckon hotel food remains as hotel food - look good, feel good, but taste wise it is just average.

Ah. No wonder so little.. reviews. Heh.

I've realised (after watch Hell's Kitchen) that an entree can mean a main course too. I'm guessing the chilled prawns is a starter?

It looks REALLY GOOD! =D But.. is it? Hur.

Hey Fuzk,

Food Bloggers do watch soccer but only real soccer fans support Liverpool - YNWA! Heh.

Anyway you are right. Entree can be a main course and the chilled prawns was a starter.

And it was one of the better dishes that night - the other being the dessert, brownie with drenched with chocolate sauce, which unfortunately my camera battery went dead before I could snap it. :)

Will be visiting sydney in 3 months time and your pics are already making me so excited about the gourmet experiences that I know I'm going to enjoy.

Btw, read from your earlier entries that you used to study in Perth? I was there too for 3 years and miss the food & lifestyle there greatly. Wish I can make a trip back soon.

Hey sooks,

Nice of you to drop by. I am sure you will enjoy yourself munching away in Sydney. Do let me know your experience!

Oh. What a coincidence! I was there in 2004 & 2005. What about you? Study or Work? I am looking forward to head back to Perth soon as well. So many good memories there. :)

hi hfb,

Makoto was fabulous when i was there. Yummy sushis and everything was so fresh!

Did you happen to check out Musashi too, just 1 street away. Very good onomiyaki served there. Delish!

Hi Celeste,

Yeap. Apparently they venture to SFM (Sydney Fish Market) every morning for fresh seafood for their sashimi and sushi.

Nope. Didn't get to check out Musashi unfortunately, but I will be sure to look out for it when I am there the next time! :)
