I know every time I post it seems like I’m apologising for the lack of posts! But what better reason to post than Mother’s Day lunch! At Ms. G’s!! This trendy little Asian Fusion restaurant has had all my friends talking for a while and I think I’ve finally been won over on my second visit here.
Ms. G’s lower ground level
Conveniently located behind Kings Cross train station, the restaurant spans several levels in a loft-like style. with an open plan kitchen in the basement. My favourite was the lower ground level with garden view and only one round table at the back (which we unfortunately couldn’t secure for our group of eight). Cute hanging Chinese lanterns and mismatched oriental plates clearly intrigued and excited my family so much… I clearly need to take them out more often =P
Mini bánh mì- crisp pork belly or chicken katsu ($6.00 each)
One of my favourite dishes of the meal and consistently yummy for my tummy! When these arrived I was so hungry I was already on my last mouthful as my family savoured the difference between the pork and chicken. General consensus was the pork belly but I liked them both! Anything with pickled veggies and herbs :D
Kingfish tostada, green papaya, guacamole, red nahm jim ($18.00)
This entree was just as fun and amazing as it looked! Loved using my hands and digging into this dish. The kingfish was so fresh and the salad so full of flavour! great combination!
Crispy new potatoes, Pauls chilli jam ($12.00)
Vietnamese steak tartare, prawn crackers ($18.00)
Steak tartare and prawn crackers. What more could you ask for! I love any variation of steak tartare and would definitely recommend this dish. Just don’t be like my grandma and only eat the prawn crackers =P
Jow’s sweet & sour lamb ribs ($25.00)
Please don’t hate me but I’m personally not a big ribs fan BUT I think I may be converted! These ribs were so amazing the meat literally just peeled off the bone and were deliciously cooked (I won’t say perfect since I have no expectations of ribs) in flavour and texture. Highly recommended!!!
Grandma’s stirred spicy pork & tofu egg noodles ($19 .00)
I don’t do spicy but would gladly let my mouth burn for this dish haha. Definitely recommend the Grandma’s egg noodles over the shanghai noodles below.
Shanghai noodles, smoked eel, mushrooms, gruyere and dancing bonito flakes ($25.00)
The noodles are alive!!! Well it’s what I think every time I see bonito flakes on food. Was a bit disappointed with this dish – not sure if it was because we had over-ordered and this was the last dish to arrive but this dish was just too salty for my liking.
‘Stoner’s Delight 2.0’ – Doughnut ice cream, peanut butter, raspberry jam, candied bacon, potato chips, mars bar slice, banana fritter ($14.00)
I’m always one to look at the dessert menu first when researching restaurants, being invited to dine at a restaurant, recommending a restaurant and/or arriving at a restaurant. So let’s all just agree I’m a dessert person if you haven’t already noticed. Ms. G’s definitely did not disappoint. The Stoner’s delight – I think I read somewhere it’s pretty much the kind of dessert you come up with or would crave for if you were stoned. Was quite amused by the name really. To be honest, it was really rich and just thought there was way too much happening on the plate compared to the next two desserts…
“Bruce Springsteen”, butter popcorn ice cream,salted caramel, popcorn brittle and honeycomb
Background: “Halo Halo” Passion fruit ice cream, young coconut ice, strawberry, watermelon, jasmine jelly, lychee pearls & other stuff ($14.00)
These two desserts were my absolute favourite courses of the night. Was literally just alternating between spoonfuls of the delicious desserts. The rich creamy smooth popcorn, honeycomb and caramel flavours of the Bruce Springsteen contrasted with the refreshing and light passion fruit, coconut, watermelon and lychee pearls were absolute heaven and the best way to end a huge satisfying meal.
The Food Zoo experience: Overall a big thumbs up for Ms. G’s. I’m majorly impressed with the dessert menu and my favourite the lamb ribs. There are so many restaurants in Sydney to try but I can see myself coming back here soon if not for dinner then just dessert! Also, watch out for the 10% surcharge for 8+ bookings!
