The Food Zoo experience: Loving the trend of touch-screen ordering! Food is often served within minutes of ordering (bear in mind, you can’t change the order if you’ve made a mistake!) And gone are the days where you wave your arms around like a crazy woman for the attention of the waiters. At the press of a button you can order food and drinks, request service and even get the bill! There’s a huge (albeit weird) range of items on the menu – hot pot, Japanese style pizza, sushi, sashimi, ramen, soba, udon, fried rice, fried noodle – you name it. A little bit of something for everyone! My favourite was the ox-tongue (so thick, delicious and grilled/seasoned to perfection!) and the iced green-tea latte. Dessert is the standard Japanese icecream (green tea, sesame or vanilla) so we opted for something with more selections… Watch out for the Passionflower post coming up!

Petaling Street, Haymarket

So this place has been around for a while but why have I only heard of it this year?? I need friends who will take me to nice cheap eats more often! This place has become one of my favourite places for a cheap, casual but satisfying dinner!

Combination Hor Fun ($11.50)

The Food Zoo experience: I have been back at least five times and left feeling full and satisfied every single time! There is also rarely a queue since it has huge downstairs seating too. I love the Hainanese chicken (probably not the best or cheapest in Sydney – but I’m easily satisfied). I would also recommend the roti canai with condensed milk to finish off the meal (although it’s not in the pictures above). Tip: Restaurant takes CASH only! (Well I think you should really be expecting that from an Asian restaurant anyway!)
