Superbowl delivers

As previously mentioned, I am on the hunt for Sydney’s best wan ton noodle soup. Today I sampled the wan ton noodle soup at Superbowl Chinese restaurant and it has by default become the best I have tried here at this point in time (due to the fact that I have only tried it in two restaurants in Sydney).

Breakdown

  • Soup: Flavoursome yet mild, without being too mild. 8.5/10
  • Wan tons: A good serving of six large wan tons – sweet, juicy and packed with flavour; some gristle 8.5/10
  • Noodles: A generous serving of egg noodles that I could not finish. 10/10
  • Gai lum: A good accompaniment of greens; fresh and just the right amount. 8.5/10
  • Value for money: Who would not be happy spending $AUS7.00 on such a tasty, filling meal? 9.5/10

Total Score: 45/50 – that’s 90%! Well done Superbowl, you are the current wan ton noodle soup sage 🙂

B.B.Q King – a regal feed

A friend recommended B.B.Q. King to me just before I arrived in Sydney and I tried them for their wan ton noodle soup last Saturday. I was quite disappointed and duly communicated this to my friend, who sent me a chastising reply recommending “forget the wan ton noodle soup, it’s all about the duck, Pedro?. So today, I ate duck and I’m glad that I did.

I ordered a plate of BBQ pork and roast duck on rice ($AUS 13.00 at time of purchase) and my regret factor = 0. The duck was succulent, meaty and plentiful; very nice indeed. The BBQ pork was excellent also, served in very large, rough slices (in a good way) and had a flavour that was intense without being over-powering. As well as the delicious meats, the meal also included a generous portion of steamed gai lum.

Before (Lack of image focus due to hunger) After (burrrp!)

B.B.Q King are no fuss no mess with delicious food. For a chinese plate of mixed meats on rice, you can’t go wrong. They mean business and I’m prepared to pay for it!

Flavour %: 95
Filling %: 100
Artery hardening %: 70

G’day from Sydney (and thank you WordPress)

Hi, I’m Pedro; welcome to my brand spanking new blog.

As documented on my About page, I have just moved to Sydney. I am currently overflowing with hope, ambition, anticipation and a sprinkling of anxiety.

I have been here for one day now and this sums up my current status:

  • No job
  • No permanent address. Currently staying with my mate Whitey in McMahon’s Point (He has a nice view).
  • A perpetually depleting bank account
  • Having fun!

I want to take the opportunity of my first post to say a big thank you to WordPress. In my humble opinion, I feel that WordPress is the weblog system that most closely meets my needs.

I have patiently been waiting on WordPress’s invitation list now for about six weeks and it was with much elation that I opened my Email (30 minutes ago and 36 hours after arriving in Sydney) from WordPress notifying me that I had an account waiting for me to activate. Again, many thanks to WordPress and their excellent product; I hope to put it to good use.

Over and out

Pedro
