After hearing so much about Bourke Street Bakery, when i know i was going to Sydney, the first thing that came to my mind was “I NEED TO GO BOURKE STREET BAKERY IN SYDNEY!”. Therefore, my first stop in Sydney was that. I really love Sydney a lot, not so sure about the people but the place is really beautiful. The street, houses and shops are so LONDON. I don’t know how to describe to you guys how beautiful Sydney is, so i shall let the pictures do the talking.
Getting around in Sydney wasn’t easy for us. Sydney, just the CBD alone can kill all of our brain cells. The routes, trains, buses are quite complex, maybe because Sydney itself is really big unlike Singapore. There’s no 1 bus that u can get straight to your destination. Taking 2 buses to a place and you should consider yourself lucky. I haven’t even calculate the amount of walking we did. CRAZY. Despite changing so many buses, there’s still a significant amount of walking to be done & lots of map reading. I think i have promoted from a map noob to a map pro. Anyway I forgot how many buses we took and how long we walked (all i remembered was I WALKED ALOT) but we finally reached or found our destination after like 2 hours from our apartment? We were famished.
so many yummy pastries! so spoilt for choices :p
On the table: croissant, chocolate tart & mushroom quiche.
croissant wasn’t that fresh anymore but still not so bad, chocolate tart was good (very rich!) & quiche wasn’t that salty enough for my liking. If only the quiche got more cheese in it & it will be PERFECTO.
Bourke Street Bakery serves quite a good cup of latte & hot chocolate! 🙂
Happy girl who finally got to try the legendary Bourke Street Bakery!
What’s new to the table: lemon cream tart & carrot cake. Sorry, couldn’t remember what the last item -_-
There’s 2 extreme responses to the lemon cream tart.
1) way too eggy & the lemon tanginess made the eggy tasted like rotten eggs ( that’s me and shanel’s vote)
2) very yummy ( don’t ask me why cause i don’t understand why)
I thought this carrot cake was pretty good. The cake was just moist enough & spices in the cake wasn’t overwhelming.
The only thing was NOT ENOUGH CREAM CHEESE 🙁
Overall it was a pleasant visit to Bourke Street Bakery. Couldn’t find anything much to complain about because the beautiful scenery, afternoon mild sun ray, weather & companions had covered up the imperfections.
I miss cafe hopping in Sydney already!
Will blog Day 1 Part 2 real soon about my visit to Kylie Kwong’s restaurant in Sydney! wheeee~
