Sydney is a beautiful state in Australia, blessed with its beautiful beaches and nice walks. Apart from that, I had managed to discover during my stay on several good locations for various cuisines such as Korean, Italian, Malaysian, Aussie etc. Woke up around midday today and realised that we needed to have a nice and delicious lunch before going around shopping with my darling. Drove all the way to Strathfield suburb and ended up in our favourite korean place for lunch. It is over at Ceci Korean Restaurant (Located at 37 The Boulevard, Strathfield)
Both of decided to order the spicy chicken set and the bulgogi beef set at only $13 each. They come with tasty side dishes like kimichi, bean sprouts and sweet potatoes.
These korean side dishes are so delicious, yet so healthy. I am a big fan of Kimichi and I have just bought a kg of kimichi which is suppose to last me for at least 2 weeks. I love the spicy chicken dish, very tender, succulent and little spicy. Portions are generous with added mushrooms and bean sprouts.
As for the beef bulgogi, it was sweet, tasty and tender. Very filling for both of us especially we had steamed rice and the 2 rounds of side dishes, with the generous helpings of the mains.
I love coming to Strathfield as it is like the Korea town in Sydney. Lots of korean shops, food, groceries, bakeries, thereby making it very interesting and unique in its identity. We also patronise the hair dressing salon over there as they are pretty trendy and reasonably priced. K pop sensation.. Woah. We were so full and we shopped around after the meal to work the calories off.
After that, I insisted visiting my favourite pastries shop over at Haberfield. They got the best Ricotta cake in Sydney, as far as I know. It seems that I have been eating non-stop. But, if you check this place out, you would realise that it is all worth every bite… Took me about 20 mins from Strathfield to Haberfield. Haberfield has many nice Italian restaurants too.
Ordered an almond pastry, ricotta cake, an earl grey and a cup of flat white. Conclusion: Love the ricotta cake to bits, not very excited about the almond pastry as it was too sweet for my taste…The tiramisu here is really nice as well. Ricotta cake was light, yet crumbles in your mouth. Beautifully done. Served with cinnamon dust and fresh cream. Goes well with tea and coffee.
The almond pastry I was talking about: looks nice in the picture but too sweet for me…
Finally coffee for me, tea for darling to end the afternoon with a bang.
Earl Grey- better if it were loose leaves…unfortunately
