Sydney's best Banh Mi πŸ˜‹ Generous filling, fresh crusty bread roll and only $5 each! We like to warm ours in the oven, brings out the fragrance of the patΓ©, etc. πŸ‘
Mine is in the middle, no shredded pork substituted with Vietnamese BBQ pork/ham.

So cold and windy today, nice and warm in this basement food court for our usual favourites. Hainan Chicken Rice with soup only $8.50. Ipoh fried Sar Hor Fun only $9. Add a drink (Saturday lunch only) just $1. Love their super 🌢️🌢️ hot sambal belacan, Hainan chilli sauce and pickled chillies.

Yesterday's lazy lunch.
1) Cheat's version of Pan Mee Goreng. Topped with leftover seasoned minced pork, CRISPY shallots/Ikan Bilis/Pork lard, chopped chillies, coriander and lots of lettuce. Would have been complete if garnished with a poached runny egg.
2) Packet Pan Mee from Malaysia πŸ˜‰ I don't usually eat instant noodles because of the after effects but this is goodπŸ‘

Bak Kut Teh. Bought only one packet of the herbs back from Malaysia as I was rushing and there were too many choices! πŸ€” So I chose the most expensive one 😊 and it was a good choice πŸ‘πŸ˜‹
Cooked the pork belly in my thermal pot, so easy. Added Chicken stock powder which has no MSG, also bought from Malaysia.

Lovely High Tea at Swissotel's Crossroads Bar. $59 for 2, similar to Groupon's offer I think.
Love the Starry Eyed Cocktail - Lychee, Strawberry syrup, sparkling wine.
Enjoyed all the dainty savoury bites and sweets (which were not too sweet πŸ‘) except for the 'Vegetarian' Frittata piece which we thought πŸ€” tasted and smelled a bit beefy? (I don't eat beef). Great place for a long catch-up with friends as they don't rush you πŸ‘ Cheerful service with big smiles πŸ˜†
