Nourishing Quarter - Surry Hills

If you know me, you'd know how much I love my meat. My old roomie has been meaning to take me to this vegan place, I was never convinced. In fact, I even tried to get out of it a few times.


But uh....


I'm SOLD.

I'm so glad I went. I can't think of a single con (maybe except for the fact that they over charged us for the cake.. i think it's only meant to be $5.5), worth dinning, good food, great service. Will return.

Quinoa noodle salad; Entree size

Sacred Khot 5 for $13 (I think)


Passage to India; Entree size


Raspberry & Lemon Cheesecake $13.5


Tea

Simple times and same old life.

I now have an abundance of "free-time" with this current position, I finish at 2pm... meaning I have approx 9 hours to kill before bed. This is a huge disparity from my usual 2-3hrs. Which is probably why I'm here quite often. My days feeds off feeble activities as most things I do sparks little interest.

Although I haven't found my piece of mind just quite yet. But just maybe, or I'd like to think that..

I've found a temporary euphoria.

Kelly's Bar & Grill - Bondi Junction

I received a sizable sum of gift vouchers so thought I'd take my birth giver to Bondi Junction, where I slave laboured for approx 1 year. She's not big on meat so I thought I'd spice up her papillae by suggesting pork ribs.... "mmm... ok..." she replied rather tenuously.


We were both pretty hungry by the time we arrived. Bread and butter was complimentary.. not sure if it's because I was hungry but god damn, that's the best tasting bread I've ever had.... oh so buttery! It the perfect combination of sweet and savoury.

350gm Pork Ribs $27.95

Pork ribs were good, not amazing or anything like that. It didn't reach my expectation as no meat was falling off the bone. A little bit chewy, the sauce reminds me of the seasoned pork bits you get from chinese meat shops. Chips were fine, I liked the seasoning of the chips though... but nothing beats the parmesan and truffle chips from Charlie & Co! Decent serving for the price. It's probably comparable (Flavour-wise) to Hurricane's Bar & Grill... except there's a lot more meat on the ribs @ Kellys. Hurricane's ribs were pretty boney and skin-filled, equally tender... but not as tender as the ribs I had a Pancakes on the Rocks... now THOSE ribs had meat falling off the bone like a feeble being.

Caesar Salad $14.95

We were gonna go with an entree, main & a dessert but couldn't fit dessert in. Caesar salad was "average" best one I've had thus far was from the Bistro @ Bankstown RSL. The leaves were very crunch. There's just not enough flavour!


The lunch time service on the other hand was impeccable.

Chat Thai Westfield Sydney Restaurant Review

Since I spent christmas and new years and most other days slave labouring away I called up my food buddy for a meal. We encountered immense difficulty while attempting to find a decent restaurant.


We were tossing up between the infamous one chef's hat restaurant Quarter Twenty One and Chat Thai....nothing on Quarter Twenty One's menu took my fancy so Chat Thai it was. I've had a relatively positive experience in previous times, so why not.


We began feasting at noon, the place was quickly packed an hour later (this was on a Monday by the way)
Prawns & Glass noodles


Pork belly & ginger + curry or something..


FISH, with a lot of chilli

Sorry guys, I was suppose to post this up a few weeks ago but didn't have time... I get an ear-full on my days off.. so I've forgotten what the dishes are actually called.


Lets just say that ALL of the mains we picked were extremely oily. The stomach was bloated and couldn't fit in dessert. I felt incredibly sick within 30mins of the meal. Having said that, it was enjoyable.. in a sick way. I just wouldn't order the same combination together, ever, again.

Mazzaro Restaurant - Museum

 Tucked away near Museum station. I was impressed with the service and food the first time... I had to go back for seconds. Prior to Mazzaro's I was a cheap eater.... Guess that changed, since the only thing I'm willing to splurge on is food. Oh delicacy!

Duck Ravioli

Skipped entree this time, in my previous visit I had their deliciously crunchy and flavoursome garlic bread, just the right amount of herbs. Went straight onto main, got the Duck Ravioli ---$28.50 with white wine and wasabi sauce. Pastry wasn't as thin as I'd prefer, the duck was a little dry, stringy and lacking flavour. I don't think the filling was marinated. The sauce was creamy, with a hint of wasabi, minimal red wine.. just the right balance for me. But overall, I thought the main was a little disappointing and rather bland to be honest.

Previously, I ordered the Saffron Angel Hair $32-- with prawns, smoked salmon, spinach and chilli. Which was absolutely fantastic... huge meal and I almost OD on olive oil.


Honeycomb & marshmallow ice cream cake



Honeycomb and Marshmallow ice Cream Cake $12.50---- Let me start off by saying that Mazzaro's desserts are ... amazing. Just look at the picture above, it was intricate and crafty.. I guess. From the top, you get a dark chocolate fudge with a piece of toffee. The honeycomb marshmallow ice cream cake is layered, with a bottom of a short bread/biscuit crumb base. Some sour jelly to the left. Bit of blueberries and strawberries to the bottom. Topped off with some custard on the plate. This place is worth it just for the dessert, had the creme brulee... my taste buds has never been this excited.
