Ms. G’s, Potts Point

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.

DSC_0002Ms. 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

DSC_0015Mini 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

DSC_0016Kingfish 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!

DSC_0021Crispy new potatoes, Pauls chilli jam ($12.00)

DSC_0025Vietnamese 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

DSC_0032Jow’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!!!

DSC_0037Grandma’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.

DSC_0042Shanghai 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.

DSC_0053 ‘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…

DSC_0050“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!

wahwah lounge, Waterloo

I’m really really supposed to be studying right now but I need some valid reason for procrastinating hence.. this blog! Hmm I really hope no-one notices that I’m being sneaky! And so a little while back, the boy and I went to wahwah lounge at Waterloo. We were originally going to go to Danks St Depot (cafe with the ginormous bowls of coffee) but deciding to be slightly spontaneous we just hopped into the cafe next door…

The cafe is really casual with open dining spaces. As the weather was super humid I was actually hoping the inside would be a little air conditioned for me to enjoy my meal. Unfortunately there was no air-conditioning but nevertheless I survived. I love how the mirrors have served a dual purpose throughout the cafe – being used as “Specials” boards but also creating a spacious feel to the narrow dining area.

Fruit frappes & Fruit juices ($6.50)

There are freshly squeezed juices and special combination fruit frappes which are the perfect pick-me-up to get started for the weekend. I ordered “In the Pink” – watermelon and pineapple juice while the boy ordered a “Wah tang” – freshly squeezed pineapple, lime and mint fruit frappe.

Eggs Benedict – baby spinach & hollandaise with smoked salmon ($18.90)

I loved how the eggs were perfectly poached however served cool (I’m assuming so not to cook the smoked salmon). The boy had no complaints however I guess I’m just used to my eggs being served hot.

French toast with fresh Strawberries, maple syrup and creme fraiche ($11.00)

The best french toast I’ve had by far! You can’t really tell in the photo but the bread is so soft and drenched in the perfect amount of maple syrup. The strawberries and creamy creme fraiche just completed the awesome dish. I am definitely going to go back for more… No question about that!

Crispy chat potatoes tossed with creme fraiche & chives ($6.90)

Being the glutinous eater I am, I couldn’t resist but take up the waitress’ recommendation of the crispy chat potatoes and I am unbelievably glad I did. The creme fraiche must be their specialty or something! The potato skins were slightly crispy and topped with the creme fraiche, tasted just like sour cream and chives.

The food was great and the waitstaff were extremely friendly… I can’t wait to go back for the french toast and those crispy chat potatoes!
