Dinner at Mr. Wong, Sydney

I’ve probably said that I’ve found my ‘new favourite restaurant in Sydney’ about a billion times now. I’m sorry, okay? I don’t often throw that term around, and I really do mean it when I say it! I just happen to have a lot of favourites!
Now here is ANOTHER for you to feast your eyes on. Mr. Wong, here we come!

In the city, down an alley, is one of the coolest Chinese restaurants you’ll ever go to.

And then there’s downstairs…

How gorgeous is it? It’s so bloody cool and old school, and it’s such a massive space!

It was just screaming at us to order some cocktails (of which they had many).

But we were in an Asian restaurant, so naturally I had to have tea as well.

My mind was so confused. Still, we managed.

Then it began. The food.

I’d read somewhere that their Roast Duck was one of the best dishes in Sydney (yes, the same list I read with Chiswick’s lamb in it) so obviously that was a must-order.

And holy crap was it DELICIOUS. One of the best roast ducks I’ve ever had.

And, of course, you had to have it wrapped in pancakes.

And some cheeky pork buns too… Hamish’s favourite!

Then when the mains came out, so did the red.

We ordered a pretty beautiful selection of food. I say we, I mean Mama Bridges, this was her domain. She very much enjoyed being boss tonight as well.

An absolutely delicious feast.

What better way to celebrate our last night in Sydney?

I ate how I was taught growing up.

I’m going to forget that this isn’t socially acceptable in London. Screw them.

We umm-ed and ahh-ed about order dessert, until I decided I’d take the plunge and order a couple since I knew that everyone would try and sneak a taste, even after saying they don’t want any. So typical of them.

But then, typical of me, ordering 2 desserts turned into ordering 4 of the 5 desserts. The waiter was so lovely – he brought us the 5th dessert on the menu to the table on the house! Huzzah! This was the Strawberry Ice, Sheep’s Milk Yoghurt Sorbet, Strawberries, Shiso and Honeycomb.

It’s flavoured shredded ice, so super refreshing.

So back to the others, which we originally ordered!

Salted White Chocolate Ice Cream, Yuzu Custard, Mandarin and Pineapple.

Baked Chocolate Ganache, Green Tea Cream and Raspberries.

We couldn’t not order it based on their descriptions, you know what I mean?

Dad insisted we ordered the Mango Pudding, Passionfruit Granita, Pomelo and Pearls, since it’s his favourite and a classic Asian dessert.

I had my sights set on this baby from the start. It was Mr. Wong’s Deep Fried Vanilla Ice Cream served with Butterscotch Ice Cream. Clearly the winner of the menu.

Amazing, right? It was my favourite by far, and the most interesting.

I had to literally fight off the vultures from this one. BACK OFF BITCHES.
