Sydney - Australia

So...we're in Sydney to watch the rugby game Wales V Australia, and we were a bit disappointed with the score :-( but was good to watch regardless. We didn't let that put a dampener on our weekend. Here are our 'go-to' tips:
  • Dinner and drinks al-fresco - The Winery Excellent hearty food, and absolutely loved the decor. Service was impeccable and great selection of wines. Fish 'Barra in a bag' and the chicken pie exceeded our expectations! A great red was a Bens Run Shiraz, and for white Kudos Chardonnay.
  • Dinner and drinks - Longrain Amazing banquet menu for 4 people...loved the sticky rice concoction of a dessert at AU$65 per person. Try the 'Soho LA' cocktail in the bar downstairs
  • Dinner or lunch al-fresco - Crintinis  Nice view of Darling harbour and a decent high tea at AU$35 per person
  • Hot chocolate - Max Brenner - for all the chocoholics out there, get the 'Italiano' thick hot chocolate...molten chocolate in a cup. Probably one of the best hot chocolates I have ever, ever had.
  • Vintage - Strawberry Fields Vintage A new store housing a range of vintage apparel and accessories. I loved their selection of vintage scarves and their in-house label 'POP' and their original recycled vintage - customised themselves.  

We stayed in the Surrey Hills area which was a lively and trendy part of 
town, with lots of restaurants, cafes and vintage shops aplenty!
