Sydney Adventures pt.3

By sweetreat in , , , ,

For dinner we dined at Makoto, a sushi train restaurant. I'm not a big fan of sushi trains because the majority of my experiences haven't been very pleasant. Often, the sushi tasted like it had gone around the tracks at least a hundred times and there usually isn't much variety either. Makoto, on the other hand was fresh and delicious everytime. :)

Sushi chefs in front of us the whole time.

Eel sushi, always a must!
Didn't really know what this was, but it tasted a little cheesy.. not sure if I liked it.

Soft shell crap wasn't bad.

Walked all the way to the Harbour Bridge. Finally our mission is complete!
As we walked back to our hotel, we were surprised to find that the cute cafe we wanted to try out earlier in the day was still open. I kid you not, this is one of the cutest cafes EVER! It's beautifully decorated with vintage furniture and motifs, and it even has a section at the back dedicated to cute korean style stationery. I swear I would visit this place everyday if it ever came to Melbourne! Ahhh cute cute cute~

Cute homemade cookies!

Even their coffee cups were awesome!

They made an awesome Green Tea Latte!

Miss this place already.. ;(

Sydney Adventures pt.2

By sweetreat in , , , , ,

After brunch at Chef's Gallery, we happened across Cupcakes on Pitt. I remember when the cupcake shop first opened up in Melbourne Central. It was the hottest thing on the block and everyone wanted a giant cupcake for their birthday. Sure enough though, cupcake shops started popping up all over town and the hype eventually died (kinda like the macaron fad right now). Anyway I haven't had a cupcake in a while so I wanted to see how Sydney cupcakes fared against Melbourne's. Yes it's always a competition between the both of us lol.

Sundae cupcakes! Never seen those in Melbourne so points for originality :)

Cute box :)
We settled for caramel and cherry ripe! Was a bit disappointed that nothing tasted like cherry ripe except for the actual bar on top. Caramel was alright though.

After that we finally made it to Bondi beach! Went for a walk on the beach and visited the nearby markets. Scored myself a cute Marc Jacobs top for cheap, yay!

Bondi Markets
A baby ukelele!
As we wandered around Bondi we came across Miss Chu's. I know one recently opened up in Melbourne but have been a little hesitant to go after hearing how much they charged per rice paper roll. But the shop interior lured me in like a fly to neon lights haha. Wasn't too bad though, and those coconut shakes were seriously awesome!

Cutest menu!
Just like a tuckshop!
Funky bowl lights
Vegie because that's all that was left :(
Seriously loving the decor!

Not bad!

Again we accidentally found another popular joint. Azuma Patisserie! :)
Tried the Earl grey Chiffon cake, and it was divine.
