Sydney Eating Episode Day 4

My second last day and I felt like I was running out of time to eat as much of Sydney as I could. So I made sure it was a full blown day of eating. Brunch, dinner followed by late dinner.

Red Chilli Sichuan Chinatown Kung Pao Chicken $16.80

Red Chilli Sichuan Kung Pow Chicken

Deep fried chicken pieces with very hot dry chillis. This was loaded with chillis and flavour. It was fun digging out the chicken and each piece had a real kick to it.

This was my first experience of sichuan and it was hot, hot, hot! I’ve never experienced spiciness to the point where your mouth actually goes numb. My boyfriend and I were both sweating by the end of the meal. It was delicious don’t get me wrong, but I’m glad they offered a milky cold tea to easy the pain.

Red Chilli Restaurant Chinatown Peking Style Shredded Pork with Pancakes $16.80

This saucy and stringy pork is wrapped with the thin and soft pancakes.

Red Chilli Sichuan Restaurant Chinatown Mopo Tofu $14.80

The tofu was firm and tasty. The sauce was salty and spicy.

Mamak’s Menu

A part of eating roti which I enjoy is when I can see them actually making it. At the front of the shop there is always at least 3 stations where the staff are tossing and teasing the pastry.

Roti Planta $6.50

A buttery roti with two dipping sauces and a dollop of sambal.

Roti Planta Innards $6.50

The Innards was packed full of butter.

Telur Bawang $7.00

The sweet onion was very thinly sliced so it was not too overpowering and the egg went nicely with it.

Ayam Goreng $14 for four pieces or $4 each

Mamak Ayam Goreng

Amazing in colour and crunch. It was so tasty that I almost burnt my tongue trying to eat it when I should have let it cool down because it was fresh out of the deep fryer.

Ais Kacang $6.00

Mamak Ais Kacang

They were very generous with the syrups so it was very sweet.

Teh Ais $3.50

No foam!

Roti Tisu $9.50

Mamak Famous Roti Tisu

The best part of the night… dessert. Good to look at and great to eat. Crispy, paper-thin perfect roti. What you can’t see in the picture is the inside of the roti. It has crystals of sugar which has been caramelised and it tasted amazing!

Wagaya’s Menu

Wagaya’s concept it simple. You order off a touch screen which shows you the description, price and picture the menu items and shortly after the staff arrive with your meals. The touch screen is fun to order off and you can even order water off the touch screen.

Wagaya Menu

A very extensive menu.

We spent a lot of time going through the categories.

Home Made Gyoza

Wagaya Home Made Gyoza

Silky in texture with a slight crunch on the outside.

Salmon Toro Nigiri

I’m not a fan of salmon but my boyfriend enjoyed these.

Spicy Soft Shell Crab Hand Roll

Wagaya Spicy Soft Shell Crab Hand Roll

You can’t wrong with soft shell crab sushi. It’s probably one of the best sushi flavours.  There are a few places that do it in Perth.

Scampi Fry Roll

Wagaya Scampi Fry Roll

Deep fried scampi inside out sushi with a drizzling of spicy mayo.

Spider Roll

Wagaya Soft Shell Crab Sushi

Same as the scampi fry roll but with soft shell crab.

Wagyu Steak

Wagaya Wagyu Beef

Charred, melt in your mouth wagyu steak pieces on a sizzling plate with mushrooms.

Butter Scallops

Wagaya Butter Scallops

These chunky buttery scallops were very tasty.

Tantan Ramen

Wagaya Tantan Ramen

A very thick and tasty ramen. I enjoyed this ramen more then the one I tried at Ramen-kan because the soup was tastier and the noodles were a better texture.

      Hi Kanni,

      I think the closest thing we have to Wagaya is Bonsai in Perth.

    Thanks for sharing about Red Chilli Sichuan!

    Btw do you still remember whether the kung pao chicken with chili was boneless? They look like they could be but I’m not very sure.

      HI David,

      The Kung Pao chicken was boneless and bite sized pieces… very crunchy and hot. I remember it so well because it was probably one of the hottest things I’ve eaten.
