Sydney Cheap Eats
Today is last working day of the year for me and it feels damn great. There was too much work and a little of us time. Lots of things have slipped in our lives and I shall take this little break to reflect and hopefully plan my new focus. Our priorities need to be re-aligned.
I kickstarted my year end break with overeating at Hawker which has just opened a day ago. It has the same owner as Mamak. Expectations are high but am also conscious of teething issues for a newly opened eatery.
I understand why Lucky Pickle is so popular. $10 for a sandwich is fairly reasonable in Surry Hills. It is tasty. The fact that is tucked away in some laneway makes it even more hipster and cool. It’s opened by Tio’s bartender Arash Katrak and Anna Berry. There is no reinvention of the sandwich. Just a whole lot of great combination that just works.
Now that I’ve moved to Sydney, I love Gumshara for two things – Ramen (light version with extra char siu) and Special Rice. It is on the menu board but kind of hidden away in the lower corner. What makes special rice special is not the toppings but the treasures hidden below the topping and rice.
