Reviews have indicated Sweet Belem has the 'best Portugese tarts in Sydney' - prompting a mission-oriented trip to Sydney's Little Portugal (Petersham) for the sole purpose of tasting these tarts.
The Sweet Belem Portugese tarts, at $3.50 each, met the high expectations - both the crispy pastry with the perfect 'crunch' when bitten into and the custard filling with the right amount of sweetness and hint of cinnamon. There are also a wide range of enticing cakes and pastries on offer ... definitely will be returning to try them out.
Sweet Belem is highly recommended for its Portugese tarts and definitely worth the travel!
I'm a fan. The place is just big enough that you get a good vibe and buzz - but, not too big to lose the intimacy. Groovy crowd just enjoying themselves without the drunkenness of some of the big bars in the area.
Great cocktails and staff are super friendly and helpful. I've been a few times now, and always enjoyed myself.
The 50's are back and they landed in Darlinghurst in the form of this cool new bar, the decor makes a nice change from the usual dark wood and low lights of so many other bars in the area, foods not too bad, try the polenta chips, pretty tasty, I wouldn't come here if you are a beer drinker, only 2 on the menu and one is a light, but this place is definately worth a visit, for a cocktail and a bite in a fresh new bar that fits in nicely on this street,
I just got coffee here last weekend, as it was full as a goog, as my mum would say. The coffee was nice and strong and smooth. Hurrah! The decor was a lovely change from the overdose of twee around at the moment. I read somewhere it was trying to capture a 1980s Newtown vibe, and it does that really well - nice and dark and full of posters. There was even an old Pink Panther hanging from a wall, and some scary old dolls. The Clockwork Orange sticker on the coffee machine sealed the deal. Love!
Outstanding service. I am blown away by how well our lounge and carpet came up. With 2 toddlers and 2 cats I had almost given up on the lounge and now it looks brand new! Very professional and friendly and great price. Thank you
After having a very comforting and reassuring phone call with Scott from ACE, I was convinced this was the company I wanted to deal with from the start. I had a quite a lot of upholstery and carpets that where very tired and dated, by choosing ACE they transformed my dated furniture to nearly new which saved me $$$$, loving your work ACE , you now have a repeat customer.
If you love dumplings you probably already know about this place. How did I miss this for so long?
Dumplings are fresh, tasty and perfection.
It can get a little warm inside the small (tiny!) indoor seating, so try to sit outside on warm days if you can. Choice of sets is hard though as there's only like 8 tables combined inside and out. Takeaway is an option too.
Anyway, cute hole in wall food outlet with aassive big tick from me for dumplings and simple Chinese cuisine. Ace!
Well this is awkard, I can't believe I haven't reviewed my favourite meal in Sydney so far! Sure it gets the heart working overtime but it's worth every bit. The pan fried dumplings are out of this world - as are the steamed, but I'd recommend having the steamed come out first as you can easily fill up too quickly on panfried and not appreciate the steamed as much. (a good problem to have I guess!)
After being here quite a few times, we only recently tried the fried noodles - holy guacamole batman - the exquisite long sensations of a noodle are potentially the greatest thing to ever hit your tastebuds.
To top it all off, it's BYO - and although the place looks a little rough around the edges (and the toilet downstairs is also like something picked up and placed all the way from China) - I am sitting on the fence on whether I go all the way and give it 5 big red stars.
Easily one of the worst hair cuts Ive ever had... Usually I only spend about $35 for a haircut, but this weekend is one of my mates weddings so I thought I would pay a bit more to get something nice. Should have gone to a $15 barber - They would have done a better job
I've been getting my hair cut as well as getting a full head of foils every 8 to 10 weeks for the past year. I've had a lot of hairdressers mess up my blonde hair and it looks brassy and a bit flat. But Bruno is amazing and gets it right everytime :)
Always been great, but, I've rediscovered again after moving closer recently. Bread options are fresh and always scrummy. Love the pastries and sweets and they do a mean coffee too! I had an almond croissant today that seemed bigger than my head! (may be slight exaggeration). Crunchy toasted almonds on the outside of light flaky pastry with moist inside. Yuuummmmy!
Great cafe with a funky vibe - if you don't find a seat at the front, there's a back room with graffiti on the walls and a roller door that opens up to the back alleyway. Service was friendly and helpful with explaining the menu options. I ordered the Kaya Toast (coconut jam toast) with runny egg and although it was tasty (and interactive), I would probably try a different dish next time (sweet coconut jam toast, runny egg and soy sauce don't mix well for me - apparently a traditional dish). I also ordered the V8 juice which was fresh and a good serving.
Cute little cafe just up the road from Central Station. I went here for breakfast and ordered the "my Asian cousin's summer breakfast". Yummo! Tapioca cooked in coconut milk then served with fresh coconut slivers, puffed dried lychees, fresh mango, chia seeds and macadamia nuts. Will try to recreate this dish at home.
