Lipstick on a pig?

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)?
