Probably the most memorable part of the trip involved the world famous "Tetsuya" restaurant. Anything I say about it will never do it justice. This ten course degustation menu was insane-out-of-this-world amazing! A part of me wishes I took a photo of each dish, but then again, my tastebuds will serve better for my memory then any photo. The service was immaculate, the food, the wine (!) I can't even begin to describe. All I know is that if you ever want a food experience of a lifetime, then save your dollars (really, save your dollars) and experience it for yourself. Incredible!
We also discovered the best burritos in town! I am a huge mexican fan - all throughout America we were on the search for authentic Mexican - and the burritos at Guzman Y Gomez were the best I have tried in Australia. Delicious! As soon as Franco and I got home, we tried to recreate them and I must say Franco, you did a fantastic job!
As for bars - we went to the 'Lowenbrau' at The Rocks - I sampled a delicious mango beer - yum! That was a very cool place - all staff were dressed in German attire. Loved it!
|My awesome mango beer - and Franco's 'little' beer. He was jealous!|
We also went to a few bars in Newtown, and spent alot of time in the Intercontinental hotel bar, naturally!
Other things we did in Sydney: Visited Taronga Zoo. I actually was this close to smuggling this little fella into my handbag....
|He is saying "Pick me! Pick me! Put me in your handbag!"|

It was such a lovely week away. We are so quick to dream of going overseas - but here is a stunning city right in Australia, with so much to do, so much to offer, so much to eat and see.
