I didn’t mind the crowds tonight; it was great to see the park filled with so many people. The music, lanterns and smells created an electric atmosphere.
At 10 past 5 seats were already starting to get filled
I think these were from Bungalow 8?
There was also a pie shop with pies full of Thai fillings
Wagamamas sweet potato chips with a basil, mayo & wasabi dressing
I bought an entree box from Thai Power which had a fishcake, satay stick & the biggest curry puff ever
Julia had this unusual little tube of bamboo that was filled with sticky rice and then steamed, she said that it was quite nice but difficult to eat because the fork given was too big
I took Lils advice and tried the Thai style pork sausages with papaya salad and fried sticky rice from Banana Blossom. Helen highly rated the rice ball but the papaya salad was the big winner for me! (you have to try look beyond the gigantic lettuce leaf jumping out of the box).
9:00pm - Sugar Hit @ Sofitel Wentworth:
At 8:30pm the 6 remaining foodies headed off to the Sofitel Wentworth for a sugar hit.
We started with a glass of Brown Brothers Botrytis Reisling
Chocolate assiette - a delicious tasting plate consisting of:
white chocolate crème brulee, a berry & milk chocolate terrine and a Valrhona bitter chocolate parfait and praline.
The Verdict? It was well worth the wait and $15! We finished in record time and contemplated on doing another 2 sugar hits in the same night (but decided against it....maybe next time).
I even tried to scrape the chocolate off the plate
Thank you for such a lovely evening ladies, I enjoyed your company immensely (you all have such bubbly personalities!) happy eating and keep blogging.
I ended up getting home pretty late and instead of sleeping I stupidly stayed up to post photos. I think Hoi caught me sleeping on the train this morning (I assure you I don't do it often! haha but I could barely get out of bed).
Thank Goodness tomorrow is Saturday and Clerkship season for 2006 has come to an end.
