TeaPlus, Burwood

What a busy weekend! Trekking all over Sydney on a Saturday afternoon and finding myself stuck in Burwood traffic which was quite a bummer. Although I finally got to try this place after stumbling upon it on Philsosophy‘s blog (in addition to some awesome Pho at Mint – look out for this post over the next few days!) So at least all the running around all paid off!

Tea01

Plant Milk Tea – Green Tea ($5.80)

Tea02

 Plant Milk Tea – Original with pearls ($5.80)

Tea03

Plant Milk Tea – Taro ($5.80)

Tea04

Three of the four flavours offered (hot chocolate also available)

The Food Zoo experience: These drinks are so adorable! The “soil” is made of crushed Oreos and separated from the tea with a layer of frothy foam. Unfortunately, all the drinks were only lukewarm when they arrived and the biscuits added a weird salty taste to the drink which wasn’t too pleasant. However, the actual flavours were nice and strong so I think you wouldn’t probably be better off getting other drink items which are less fancy! There are also other snack items on the menu which I thought I should mention although we were really just too full from dinner!

Finally, a quick note about the efficiency of the staff. I think only in Asian restaurants would they ask patrons to change seats after already being seated. But at least it helped us get a table of four seated in 15 minutes instead of 50! I was impressed!

Korn, Crows Nest

I think this little thai restaurant is quite new and nestled amongst all the outer restaurants along Willoughby Road in Crows Nest. Service was really quick (some of the food too pre-prepared) which was good for a quick dinner before a long and silly karaoke session in the city!

Thai milk tea ($4.50)

Satay chicken 6pcs ($5.90)

Korn04

Deep fried taro ($5.90)

 Mussaman duck ($18.90)

Korn06

Mango sticky rice

The Food Zoo experience: I would recommend the thai milk tea (one of my favourite drinks). Although there wasn’t enough ice to make it icy cold – but at the same time, it meant that you didn’t finish your drink in two sips leaving a cup of ice behind. I found the massaman duck a bit expensive given there were only a few pieces of duck in the dish and couldn’t taste anything in the fried taro except for sweet chilli sauce. The satay chicken was well served and the mango sticky rice (the price escapes me). I think I would go back to this place for my favourites and maybe give a chance to the other items on the menu!
