Sydney Travel Guide Day 5 : Best Pie in Sydney Harry’s Cafe de Wheel, Famous Watermelon Cake at Black Star Pastry, The Grounds of Alexandria, Adriano Zumbo Macarons, Grill’d Burger and My favourite Stone Wood beer

Its finally the last post of our Sydney Trip! I figured out I have to anyhow finish my Sydney post if not it be will dangling there forever. Thank you for baring with me throughout the long haul post and Hello… it has been a year! I miss you Sydney!

20160801_065417_resizedLovely breakfast before we went for breakfast. Yes you heard me, that’s what we have been doing for the past one week, food over food. So Australia doesn’t really have a national dish, the only more iconic dish for Australia is probably their meat pies. I have been searching for the longest time for the best meat pie in Sydney and everyone recommended this — Harry’s Cafe de Wheel. Now, they have 11 outlets throughout Sydney and we decided to visit new places so we chose the outlets at Tempe which is also the Marrickville area.

DSC00404Tempe is a very quiet neighbourhood, big and spacious train station with very few passengers. We use our google map from Tempe train station and we walked to our destination – Harry’s Cafe de Wheel!

DSC00392Nice rims out there!

DSC00393Hello Harry’s Cafe de Wheel…!

DSC00394 DSC00400Take a look at the menu! I think we probably had the best combination of food. And i had the BEST strawberry milkshake in my life but I wonder why is it not in the photo. *tears*

DSC00396Their signature, Tiger Harry’s Favourite. It was named after the founder Harry Tiger Edwards! We had cheese and bacon pie topped with mushy peas, mash and gravy! Very hearty meal.

DSC00397Next is the Hot Dog de Wheels! Yes, it make us went crazy over hot dog buns ever since! Continental Viennese smoked frankfurt served with mushy peas, chilli con carne, garlic onions with cheese sauce and chilli sauce. 

Next, we proceed to Newtown! The home of the utmost famous Watermelon Cake! I kind of like Newtown, not too busy but equipped with everything you need. 

DSC00405Oh what I love about Sydney train as compared to Melbourne’s one is that they are all double Decker. hoho!

Beautiful township I would say. 

DSC00406 DSC00424 DSC00426 DSC00434And Black Star Pastry — This is where you can get your watermelon cake! Trust me its worth the queue!

DSC00407 DSC00410 DSC00415Beautiful pastry. I would seriously recommend watermelon cake. It will blow your mind. Its not overly sweet, only the natural sweetness from the watermelon itself, combined with the fluffy cake and some cream with toppings. Oh my oh my.

DSC00412 DSC00418 DSC00422Other than that, I will give it a pass. Too sweet for our liking. But for watermelon cake, a big big thumbs up for you!

Third stop, The Grounds of Alexandria. Beautiful, sophisticating and heart warming! We have been rushing a few places because its our last day and we do not want to miss out anything which is interesting and worth going. 

How to go to The Grounds of Alexandria : From newtown station, take a bus 370 to Sydney Park road. It will reach around 6 mins after 6 stops. Then from Sydney park road, walk about 9 mins which is around 700 m to The Grounds of Alexandria. 

DSC00442Oh my oh my, it is too beautiful that I think I will just let the photos do the talking. However, photos can never make a justice to how beautiful this place is. Best is to go explore yourselves. I bet you will fall in love with it.

DSC0044713872826_10153564869741829_2170869251813997414_nHello Bacon! 

Fourth stop, Adriano Zumbo! You can basically get Adriano Zumbo dessert easily at town or George Street but since we are planning to explore new places on the very last day, we opt for the outlets at The Star Casino at Pyrmont. 

DSC00469 DSC00470 DSC00471 DSC00472 DSC00473Beautiful dessert but too sweet for our liking. It certainly look so much better than it taste. Hmmmmm.. but I am sure those who love very sweet dessert will love it.

Final stop will be Darling Harbour and Grill’d Burger. The girls are sleepy and tired so they decided to head back home straight but I have a mission to buy some ribs for baba so I headed to this beautiful harbour for one last time.

DSC00476 DSC00478 DSC00479And say what. there’s Grill’d! Lamb Burger! Stone Wood Beer! And thats what I got for my dinner. Happy Ending!

DSC00484 DSC00485I decided to take a different route home and to my astonishment, WHAT???!! You mean all the past one week we have been taking short cut and  missing out this breathtaking view just outside our apartment???! Snap snap snap! Good discovery before we head back to Malaysia! Thank you Lavender Bay, you have been such a good location for our Sydney trip!

Finally finish all  my Sydney posts and I hope you enjoy reading. It was our first ever trip together and it turned our memorable and happy. I cherish all the moment we spent and I sincerely hope that we will have more trips coming in the future. Thank you Yuen Ni and Lao Mao for making this trip happened. Love you girls as always and forever <3
