So after a late night at uni, Zen and I decided to stop by this small neon-lit restaurant, which we'd always driven past. Sushi Tengoku was packed with local "honkie" families. As soon as you enter, you're exposed to a fresh but fishy scent. I sat on the only available table, and waited for it to be cleaned whilst listening to everyone's conversations about food. Every table seemed to prize what they had ordered... fresh sashimi, and sushi of every sort... mMm...
What a nice ending to a very hectic week. The Eyeblaster AU team switched on our Outlook out-of-office assistants, and diverted our direct lines for what we hoped to be a peaceful Friday afternoon... Lunch was served at the Moore Park Golden Century Seafood Restaurant. The ceiling to floor windows exposed us to the lovely landscaped streets of the Entertainment Quarter. The interior was spacious and airy... also unexpectedly quiet.
The establishment was hard-to-miss, though it lacked signage. The interior was airy, with large warehouse windows, cemented ceilings and basic wooden chairs and tables (we sat on the only round table). We were firstly served complimentary bread and organic extra virgin olive oil. The bread was excellent. For main's, I ordered the Maccheroni which was served in fresh tomatoes and basil. The crispy eggplant was awesome and wasn't one bit too oily.
May this year, Zen and I went to Strangers with Candy to celebrate our 3.5 year anniversary. Intrigued by its name, it was a restaurant I've been saving for a special occasion. Brett greeted us and led us to a romantic candle lit table for two. The courtyard was deceptively warm and cosy. The service was awesome, and the food is well balanced with some exotic flavours.
