Ms G’s – Potts Point

 

Much has already been said about Ms Gs it has been on my to do list for a while but for whatever reason I had not yet got the chance to give it a try…. Until now , first impressions. Very cool fit out with the graffiti style writing on one wall, thick ropes hanging from the ceiling and old school lights.  I like the look of the place!

For entree I have the Mini bánh mì , very tasty littlie snack sized rolls.   I can’t decide which one was better the chicken or the pork. There is a wide range of things on the menu for mains from fried chicken to pho style soup to Angus scotch fillet. Chefs Dan Hong and Jowett Yu really cover allot of different Asian inspired flavors.

Egg noodle with XO sauce was simple dish but it had lots of flavours in it. Especially when you mix it all up together, the pouched egg makes the spicy dish mild by masking the heat of chilli. Braised Wagyu Beef “Pho Style” was flavoursome with tender meat and lots of fresh ingredients. Konnyaku is  popular in Japan I have had it before as sashimi and noodles but never in a pho style soup.

Deserts were every bit as good as the entree and mains maybe better. The “Stoner’s Delight” is an excellent combination of classic desert flavours everyone likes. Marshmallows were so soft. The cinnamon doughnut ice cream actually tasted like a cinnamon doughnut! I was expecting just a cinnamon flavour but it had that plus something more.

I wanted to get the Pandan chiffon cake ever since I saw it on masterchef. Sitting on top of the white tapioca the green of the cake really pops out at you. The cake itself is so light and airy !

Im a big fan of Ms G’! Believe the hype.

Cabramatta

 

A few weeks ago I went out to Cabramatta for a look around and to have Sunday lunch. It had been a very long time since I last been there maybe 5+ years. One thing that I did not expect was how busy it was, traffic getting into the parking lot then the streets are filled with people! Looking around the stores for a while then set out to find a place to have lunch . There certainly is no shortage of restaurants bit overwhelming really , walking down the main street just picked a random place that looked good.

As soon I sit down some tea is brought out along with four small bowls of sauces, salt and pickled cabbage.  On the menu for lunch was spring rolls with there accompaniments of lettuce , mint and shaved carrot. Then some crispy skin chicken with egg noodle soup and a dry beef and egg noodle.  All this for a grand total of $28, I paid more for an entree the night before. Generous servings and all were very tasty.

After  lunch I wondered around for a bit ,snap a few pics considered getting something for desert but was too full so then headed home.
