“We had a great dinner at Super Bowl on our first day in Sydney. The Chinese Food here is excellent and portions were generous. Unfortunately, we only ordered three dishes and were maxed-out! I wished we had more people on our table (like our neighboring table) so we could try more dishes from their long-listed menu … ”
Easter is the most significant religious event of the Christian calendar and in Australia, it is usually a four-day weekend that starts with Good Friday and ends on Easter Monday. This year, ANZAC day on April 25, 2011, fell on Easter Monday and the following Tuesday was a public holiday in recognition of the congruence of Anzac Day and Easter Monday. The good news – it was a five + 1 (my company recognized Wednesday as a substitute holiday for Easter Tuesday!) weekend for us and Ms. L. has arranged for a trip to Sydney. The bad news was, we didn’t get most of our luggage when we arrived at Sydney Airport (this side of the trip won’t be featured here!).
The location for dinner on our first day in Sydney was at Chinatown. The exact restaurant will be determined there. We had a ‘tour guide’ (my sister), who happened to be in town and she showed us the way from our hotel to Chinatown.
As it was Easter, Chinatown was ‘sardine-packed’. We managed to make a return trip along the main street, Dixon Street. We browsed through lots of hawker stalls along this street and tried some of the interesting food that caught our attention. I have posted some photos of the food we’ve tried here. Dixon Street consisted mainly Chinese restaurants and we were looking for the restaurant with the longest queue! Super Bowl – Chinese Restaurant was the winner. We waited close to 10 minutes before we were ushered to our table.
The menu provided to us was very extensive, especially their variety of Congee and all of them sounded good. We ordered the Congee with Pork and Century Egg ($9.80). The Congee was great and I loved the Pork and Century Egg combination. We also ordered the Yau Char Kwai or fried bread stick (I think it was under $3 a serving of one strip) to accompany the Congee. Dipping the Yau Char Kwai into the Congee is a procedure here and we loved it – just like back home in Malaysia!
This dinner was paid by our ‘tour guide’ (my sister, if you skipped the intro!). So, I didn’t have the tax invoice and couldn’t remember the exact name and price for each item ordered! No complaints for this service, though!
The next item ordered was the Fried Koay Teow (flat rice noodle) with Beef (I think it was under $12). I am not a fan of Fried Koay Teow in Australia because the ones I have tried tasted blend but this fried noodle was tasty and beef was very tender.
The last dish ordered was the Combination of Seafood and Mixed Vegetables (this dish was under $25). This dish was filled with lots of seafood – prawn, scallop, abalone, squid … and mixed vegetables … and we all enjoyed it the most. We were looking for a vegetable dish and this dish turned out better than what was expected.
