sydney snacks

As if my blog wasn't enough indication, it seems like I've garnered a bit of a reputation outside the internet for being obsessed with food. It's not surprising at all, really – it's pretty much all I talk about and take pictures of! If my camera's not on me, most of my food adventures tend to be delegated to my instagram... that is, if I don't devour the thing straight away. Anyway, I realised that I've never really revisited my insta-food adventures, so here are some mini reviews of places I've been around Sydney:

   

Three Beans Cafe: This franchise seems to be popping up everywhere, and while I'm not a big fan of coffee I can appreciate the occasional iced drink from this place! The standard green tea frappuccino is quite good, although iced coffee with ice cream will win every time in my eyes. Apparently they do milkshakes too, so there's an excuse to go back another time.

   

Fujipan, Chinatown: If you're after an authentic Japanese bakery, this place is the ticket! That blob is basically curry filled bread that has been covered in bread crumbs and deep fried, and it's as good as it sounds. Of course I couldn't leave Totoro behind – aside from being a pretty face it's decadent and filled with custard. Also worth mentioning is the melonpan, which doesn't taste anything like melon and just looks like one because of the cookie crust on outside. For just over $10 for the whole lot, I'll definitely be back soon!

   

Chat Thai, Westfield Sydney: Chat Thai isn't really a place for snacks per se (although I'd use the heck out of a takeaway option if it had one), but I love it anyway. I'm not usually one to wait in line for restaurants but it's worth it for the authentic Thai food, whether you're getting pad see ew (my all time favourite) or a range of other dishes for sharing. The Yakult blend is also to die for – aside from distinct taste of Yakult it's also got some pineapple and coconut hints to it!

   

Considering how often I eat ramen, it's astounding that I've never gotten around to doing a full review of a ramen place. I've mentioned Gumshara's (on the left) before, and it's insanely rich tonkotsu ramen is hard to forget. Ichiban Boshi's ramen on the right is a little easier to eat, and also offers a variety of other ramen and udon noodles if that's what you fancy.

Unfortunately Sydney hasn't really grasped the idea of street food that so many other cities are famous for, but that's a whole other gripe I won't get into. Anyway, if you want to keep up with more food adventures you can follow my instagram @manisay, and I hope you have a great Easter weekend ahead of you!

  2. High five, pad see ew is my favourite Thai dish as well! I STILL haven't visited Gumshara haha, although I'm not the biggest ramen fan out there so it would probably be wasted on me.

  3. Urgh I know! I want street food, but what could there be to offer besides Japanese or Tawainese street snacks. HAHA. And it is by default, I recommend Pad See Ew for all Thai first timers.

  8. One thing I've learned since moving to Australia is that you guys are exposed to such amazing food. I'm sure Sydney's no slouch in that area.

  10. I don't blame you, especially when there are totoro-themed treats to take pics of. My whole instagram is basically a day-by-day breakdown of what I ate...
