I'm an expat Melbournian now based in Tokyo and hoping the Sydneysiders here can help me with a couple of eating q's. Have searched previous topix and resources such as Time Out, but am now confused!
We arrive in time for dinner on the 5th and leave the morning of the 8th. May hit the Sydney Fest. opening festivities on the 7th, so unsure what that means vis dinner on Sat. the 7th.
1. Hoping to visit both Chat Thai and Mamak while in town. Is one particularly better for dinner/supper over lunch?
2. Have a booking with friends for Tetsuya's on the 6th. There are some dismal reviews here in the boards; has anyone who's been recently have anything good to say?! Despite living in Japan, we don't really do the high end French/Japonaise thing, so Tets *is* something different for us.
If Tets really is a no-no, would go somewhere cheaper rather than Quay. Unfortunately will miss out on Momofuku Seibo.
3. I'm pregnant, so getting too caffeinated is a no-no, but where in the inner burbs (Surry Hills, CBD) is best for coffee and a decent brekky? NOT interested in Bill's at all.
On that note, has anyone been to Kazbah and had their brekky degustation?
4. Japanese options worth trying? (This may sound silly being in Japan, but we're not eating the fish here at the moment).
Taa muchly in advance!!
