Ohhhhh it's Taste of Sydney this week! I'm sooo super excited! If you don't know what that is, it's like a food super event where some of the top restaurants in Sydney gather up in Centennial Park and you can sample their awesome dishes in entree sized portions and for a fraction of the price.
Here is my last year's visit ~>Taste of Sydney 2011
annnnddddd Taste of Sydney has put me in their 'Taste Likes' section! whooh!
Enough about that, blogging about Home Thai today that...kinda happened last year August :/ Photography not up to scratch and I just got my 50mm lens so I was really struggling to manoeuvre around since everything was so much closer compared to my usual 18mm.
I have to say that the food at Home Thai is better and cheaper than Chat Thai. Their dessert menu is not as extensive but only $5 ish compared to $8-10 at Chat Thai!
Pu Nim Yum Mamuang - Deep Fried Soft Shell Crab Served with Mango Salad $14.90
Crunchy soft shell crab with a refreshing mango salad. Too bad it was cold by the time I finished photographing... >-<
Hoi Jor - Deep Fried Pork, Crab Meat, Water Chestnut Wrapped in Bean Curd Served with Plum Sauce $7.90
Crispy deep fried bean curd with a juicy centre of pork, crab and water chestnut.
Satay Chicken $2 each
Skewed chicken marinated with curry powder served with cucumber salad, peanut sauce.
Par Tuhng Go - Deep Fried Dough Sticks (4 pieces for $5)
Now, I grew up with deep fried dough sticks remembering grandma buying them at those street vendors at 6am...mmm...but this is a shorter and sweeter version of it. These pillowy like dough sticks dipped in a pandan sauce with coconut cream is a must order!
Mango Sticky Rice $5
Three cheers for cheap mango sticky rice! The ones at Home Thai serves 3 different flavoured sticky rice with the mango. One being the original, the purple one with a faint taro taste and the green one having a subtle pandan aroma.
After a full belly, we went to Meadowbank Park to do some crazy exposure experiments with my new lens.
We used the iPhone iTorch as a pen then did long exposure :D
Say hello to everyone.
There you go. Hello!
