a weird hobby of mine whenever i am travelling, i love to visit their supermarket or convenience stores like kmart, family mart… etc.
Here i am in one of Australia’s biggest supermarket, Woolworths. Something random, i prefer Woolworths to Coles. haha.
After bourke street bakey, we got some time to spare before dinner at Kylie Kwong’s restaurant so we went to a nearby supermarket to get some groceries for our apartment in Sydney! (YES, our itinerary was all about EAT, EAT, EAT & EAT MORE! haha)
Shanel told me pink lady apples are best apples she ever tasted. So i went to get it and try, and i think it tasted like premium fuji apples. haha! Not bad not bad.
cute looking & interesting carrots.
i love the smoked club cheddar from margaret river! Brought one back home 🙂
Then we went into a pharmacist shop. Apparently, you can find a lot of different kinds of supplements and pills there even without a doctor’s prescription unlike in singapore, and it’s much cheaper to get it in Australia too!
One of my girlfriends got too excited that she lugged back almost 10kg worth of pills -_-
it’s train, bus, bus & walk walk before we managed to find our way to our dinner place. Luckily we gave one and a half hour allowance to travel to the restaurant. haha
loving my boots from gojane.com 🙂
Billy Kwong Restaurant, Kylie Kwong’s restaurant.
very packed. for your information, u need to make reservation to avoid disappointment.
Their signature dish in the shop, fried eggs. This simple dish costs us 19aud. Indeed the most expensive egg i ever had in my life till now. The taste is very interesting, it’s oily & there’s chili oil and vinegar in it. Worth trying but i think this dish could be even better if it’s a little bit more spicy.
Homestyle fried biodynamic(what is this?!) eggs with organic tamri & homemade XO.If i am not wrong, this is stir-fried organic chickweed, milk thistle,marshmallow plant, nettles, dandelion & cavolo nero with young ginger& organic tamari (15aud)
Yes, i know. This dish name is really long & i have no idea what was that when my vegetarian gf ordered that.
Tasted like quite salty stir-fried greens but goes well with rice.
i think they roasted or dry-fried the chickweed before stir-fry with oil & rest of the ingredients which gives this dish a very unique burnt yet pleasant taste.
Dry-fried biodynamic hokkien noodles with chinese cabbage, homemade XO & grained kombu (100% natural), 27 aud.
This gotta be my favourite out of all.
Red- braised, caramelised black berkshire pork belly with malfroy’s yellow box honeycomb, organic fish sauce
(100% natural), fresh lemon & sichuan pepper, 42 aud.
(i think the menu basically named out all the condiments & ingredients used in each dish. haha)
The most expensive pork belly dish ever.
The sauce of this pork belly was sweet and oily, i thought the pork was quite tough for my liking.
I wouldn’t recommend this dish at all.
Definitely one of the better chinese food in Sydney, worth trying if u are a fan of Kylie Kwong or TLC fan.
Hope to get hold of one of her books to improve my chinese cooking 🙂
That’s the end of my Sydney Day 1.
Day 2 soon, i promised.
