Imperial Peking Restaurant – Blakehurst

With my new found love for yum cha, we had organised a lunch with a few friends to try out a place not far from home right in time for Christmas. We arrived promptly at 11am and most of our party were already there so we sat and got down to business. I would highly suggest not sitting in a high traffic area as at one point both Stud and I had a person on either side of us trying to put food on our table. Do you know how hard it is to eat when you are swamped by two small women with scissors and dumplings?? These waiters/waitresses seemed to have no concept of personal space. That’s all I’ll say. The food however, was pretty damn good. We attempted to pace ourselves but lets be honest, if we want to pace ourselves, don’t put me in the high traffic area...

Sydney Night Noodle Markets

People come from far and wide to visit the night noodle markets in October and I was lucky enough to just scrape through on the last night.

Luckily we hijacked a couple of chairs from a friend of a friend and sat there until the rest of our party arrived and then migrated to a nice grassy corner with a great view of the dragon show. When you go to the noodle markets you really need to devise a plan of attack before you even think of getting up to move. As it was still reasonable early (5:20ish), we got our priorities in check and headed straight for the bar, then a little look around for some appetiser...

It is with 50% shame and 50% excitement that I advise you that this marks my first Yum Cha experience. Yum Cha has been something I have been DYING to have for quite some time but things arise and it wasn’t to be. The girls got wind of this and decided it was high time I went along with them for an early morning session. I was collected from my home promptly at 9:30am on Sunday and off we headed to the infamous Rhodes Phoenix. I am very aware that this time of the morning is quite an unsavoury hour to be eating Chinese food but I am assured that you need to get there early as it gets packed out very quickly. We arrive and meet the rest of the clan out front at 10:15, head inside and are seated at an 8 seater table with a Lazy...
