Gazi was recommended by a friend and after checking them out on Zomato, I was sold by the great reviews. Although it’s not fine dining, I felt a bit underdressed as a tourist since everyone else looked like they had just got off work so they were in their business casual attire.

Gazi is one of the restaurants opened by MasterChef Australia judge, George Calombaris. They are located close to Federation Square and in the free tram zone. The free tram zone is a great way to get around the CBD and perfect for tourists! The city circle tram stops at most of the major city attractions and even provides a brief history of each stop along the way. Continue reading →

I also happened to come across their videos online as well so I was excited to go. They’re the cheapest Michelin Starred restaurant so I can actually afford it. Hawker Chan is famous for their soya sauce chicken dish which costs about $2 in Singapore!
