Yayoi-Japanese Teishoku

Yayoi serves up Japanese Teishoku (set meals) within The Galeries shopping centre on the second floor. Yayoi has over 250 locations in Japan! It must be good right?

Yayoi Sydney

I like how you can see people eating while you wait. There was quite a line up outside and we waited for about 20-30mins. As a Vancouverite, I found the pricing to be on the steep side, even keeping in mind that tax is included and tips aren’t necessary. Read more

Sydney Fish Market-Sushi Donuts!

The Sydney Fish Market is the third largest in the world. I’ve never been to any other fish markets before so I wasn’t sure what to expect. You will be seeing posts from my Sydney trip (again) for the next few months! I had saw on Instagram that they had sushi donuts so I was going to get that for sure! I actually went twice because the first  time I went, they had sold out of sushi donuts already. The market closes at 4pm and they only had 1 left by 2pm so I had to go back the next day. They are quite busy and there are plenty of tourist there!

The market consists of various vendors selling fresh seafood as well as cooked seafood. I was here for the cooked seafood as it would’ve been too much trouble to cook it myself.

Sydney Eats: Black Star Pastry’s Famous Watermelon Cake

I was not planning to go to Black Star Pastry at the beginning of my trip but I happened upon one of their newer locations in a Japanese bookstore called Kinokuniya in The Galeries (a shopping centre). The watermelon cake is their most popular item and it’s gorgeous! Perfect for Instagram photos. ;)

Black Star Pastry

Black Star Pastry is located right at the entrance of the bookstore. The bookstore is massive and sells tons of cool stuff akin to Chapters here. For example, they were selling the gold crown thing that Sailor Moon has on her forehead and I got kinda giddy over it.  Read more

Sydney Eats: Matcha Mochi Pancakes at Passion Tree

Passion Tree is located in Chatswood and it’s like a big shopping mall/shopping area on the North Shore of Sydney. I must say their shopping malls are really nice!!! There are also a lot of small cafes in the middle of the mall for people to eat at while shopping. They seemed like nice cafes, not like Starbucks or something. Also, I noticed that some places even show how many kilojoules/calories are in each food item!
