Today I failed blogging 101 by going out on a Sydney food adventure without my camera. Sigh. And what loveliness there was to photograph. We'll have to make do with snaps from my phone.
Nevertheless, we were up early to get to the Eveleigh Farmers Markets by 8:30 to beat the rush. First stop, croque madames at Bird Cow Fish. Divine. After demolishing those it was off to Kylie Kwong's stall to eat pancakes filled with omelette and crunchy vegetables and a side of steamed pork buns. Another sigh. So tasty.
Coffee, bread, butter and purslane purchases later, we finished with a fruity freshpop - salty watermelon for me and rose and raspberry for the peeps. So good.
Then we made tracks to The Grounds, along with a good proportion of the Sydney population. Oh my. That place was busy. And I can see why. Utterly gorgeous grounds and gardens served with amazing coffee. An irresistible combination it seems.
We hit the highway home with our bellies full of deliciousness, and even considered for a moment moving back to Sydney...then we got stuck in traffic and came to our senses.
So, that's my Sydney food mission accomplished. I loved every mouthful.
