Its great when you go to expecting a place to be good and you go away from it with your expectations exceeded! I went to Momofuku for lunch where the menu is a 8 course degustation (on the day there was actually 10) for $110. The food was all superb with heaps of variety between the dishes that all seemed to complement each other in progression.
I was lucky and got a seat at the bar that looks into the kitchen there is an area with traditional tables but I think these are the best seats in the house as you can see the chefs at work watching all the food come together. Another thing I liked about the place was the laid back atmosphere not exactly what you would expect from a 3 hatted restaurant.
At the end of the meal I was given a small packet of kimchi to take home which was nice. I really enjoyed my lunch an Momofuku and want to come back and give dinner a try.
Smoked Potato , Apple
Steemed Pork Bun
Pink Snapper with Celery & Mustard
Potato – Roe & Quandong
Eel Dashi – Octopus & Raddish
Egg with Cauliflower & Mushroom – My fav dish of them all. I normally would not pick a vegetarian dish off a menu so when this dish came out I was not expecting anything much sure it looked great but some cauliflower and egg how good could it be? Well it was great , the cauliflower had so much flavor so did the sauce. The egg was had a lovely texture to it somewhere between hard and soft
Mulloway with Salsfy & Oyster
Chicken with Endive & Sunflower - the chicken was so moist and juicy
Curd with Blackcurrant & Mint
Sorrel with Pastachio Mirzipan

Just a quick post from a recent lunch at Mr Wong. I have tried to eat here a few times before but there was always too long of a wait so this was my first time trying it out. All in all I really enjoyed my meal here and will certainly come back another time.
Pork and prawn shumai $12
Pork soup dumpling “xiao long bao” $9
Roasted five spice pork belly $25 - I found this dish to be way too salty! I only had one piece ,couldn’t take any more. This was the only down side to an otherwise great meal.
Twice cooked green beans with pork mince and XO sauce $19 - I always order these beans when I go to a Chinese restaurants and this was one of my favs.
Sour cream icecram , strawberry’s with Thai basil $14 - Such a good combination of flavors

It’s been a long time since my last post on the blog. Things have just been too busy and I didn’t have the time to blog but that’s not to say I haven’t been out eating plus a holiday to Japan, Korea and with a brief stop in Guangzhou on the way home. I have no excuse now and lots of things to blog about.
Cafe Sopra is one of my favorite places in Sydney to eat. I like the relaxed atmosphere , reasonable prices , fresh tasty food and it’s handy they have few different locations around town too. I have already blogged about their Bridge St location however Waterloo is a little different as there is a larger range of fresh fruit and vegetables as well as other grocery items along with the restaurant. From the road, you could easy walk past thinking it was just a warehouse.
Like I said I have already blogged about Cafe Sopra before so this is more a post showing some of the food I have had here. Check it out;
Raisin toast with ricotta and honey
The coffee is always good too
