I might as well try break the record and update this site with an astounding 4 posts in 1 day! So what if 2 of them have nothing to do with food?
You may recall, that a couple of weeks back, I went through an obsession with Korean food. Kimchi, soups, fatty pork rashers, BBQ marinated beef, salads of sweetened mash potato, bean sprouts and shallots are some of things I had craved.
CeCi is a small authentic Korean restaurant on The Boulevarde in Strathfield. The interior is adorningly cute with pink walls, floral wallpaper in shades of purple, blue and green and framed cartoon prints.

CeCi Korean Restaurant - metal chopsticks

I have never understood the Korean usage of metal chopsticks. They’re heavy, slippery and heat-up rather easily.

CeCi Korean Restaurant - condiments

Complimentary condiments of chestnut jelly, kimchi, beansprouts and caramelised potatoes.

The pork and kimchi soup was deliciously spicy. Tofu, kimchi and slices of fatty pork floated in a vibrant red soup.

Seafood Soup
The seafood soup was the exact opposite. It was filled with delicate flavours of blue swimmer crab, red dates, pipis, water chestnut, tofu, prawns and mushroom. The broth was so light and cleansing. Yummo!

  • Hi Jen,
    Long time reader of your blog, first time post. Just wanted to say that Strathfield is my hood and we eat out at Ceci about once a week! Next time try the hot & spicy chicken and the beef rice cakes. Those are my favourites (along with kim chi & pork soup).
    Anyway, love your blog. Keep up the good work 🙂
