Mix cows, six thou­sand people, truck­loads of impor­ted turf and lots of yummy food and you get the first ever Break­fast on the Bridge. Me and Ru Jih were lucky enough to score tick­ets to the event, where Sydney­siders were invited to pic­nic on the icon­ic Sydney Har­bour Bridge — closed to traffic — as part of Crave Sydney.

Foreboding sight: Sydney's dust storm

Fore­bod­ing sight: Sydney’s dust storm

Sydney’s dust storm, as cap­tured in my back­yard at 6:18 this morn­ing. No, noth­ing wrong with the white bal­ance.

I was almost hop­ing it was the End of the World, because the End of the World would’ve eaten up my 8 am Advanced Con­tracts lec­ture.

Name: Bécas­se
Address: 204 Clar­ence Street, Sydney, NSW 2000
Phone: (02) 9283 3440
Type: Res­taur­ant
Cuisine: French/​European
Open­ing hours: 12:00 pm-2:30 pm (lunch, Monday-Fri­day); 6:00 pm-10:30 pm (din­ner, Monday-Sat­urday)
Price: $120 (degust­a­tion); $27 and $45 (à la carte entrée and main respect­ively)

There is no doubt that Bécas­se is one of the stars of Sydney fine din­ing, almost bey­ond review for an ama­teur as myself. Famil­i­ar and unfa­mil­i­ar ingredi­ents are brought togeth­er in every dish with immacu­late exe­cu­tion and present­a­tion. This is food that is as beau­ti­ful to look at as it is beau­ti­ful to savour. I must say that some of the meat­i­er dishes may come across as being a little under­whelm­ing, but this is purely because of the heav­en­li­ness of some of the oth­er dishes; dessert here is some­thing you can’t have enough of! As for ambi­ence, Bécas­se is a place well-suited any time a little bit of soph­ist­ic­a­tion is in order. From the eleg­ant but not too pre­ten­tious din­ing room, you can see the chefs deftly apply­ing their mas­ter­ful craft, as you go through this culin­ary jour­ney.

You can prob­ably tell from my descrip­tion that we had the degust­a­tion, although they also have a decent à la carte selec­tion. I think I will let the pho­tos speak for them­selves, for which many thanks are due to Daniel Tse.

ROM Fail

“ROM Fail” on a sol­ar energy dis­play: proph­et­ic of the status of the fed­er­al government’s renew­able energy bill (coupled with the emis­sions trad­ing scheme)?

No fly­ing pigs…

… but these chocol­ate-fla­voured cows sure look deli­cious!
