Dinner on the first night (before the start of the conference) was Tokyo Laundry at the Gateway which was round the corner from Marriott. The food was good... but I personally think the price tag is too expensive. Oh, and before that we had drinks at Lot 1 Basement Bar, because it was near work.
I left Sydney on Sunday afternoon, giving myself some extra time which I used to pick up the above Firecracker from Shangri-la Hotel. This dessert was made famous in this year's Masterchef first elimination round. The description of the dessert - Roasted Milk Chocolate, Peanut Grue, Raspberry Marshmallow, Peanut Butter Cremeaux, Raspberry Cold Set Brulee, Chocolate Souffle Sponge, Raspberry Gel, Roasted Milk Chocolate Mousse, Crunch and a Chocolate Shell complete the delicious picture. It was superb!

I also saw a place in Sydney that sells eggettes (gai dan chai) but I was totally stuffed when I walked passed the shop, it was after dinner in Masuya and the above soft serve ice-cream. I had the brilliant plan of buying it for breakfast the next day but they only opened at 11am, but I wanted to buy the firecracker and in time to have my dose of ramen. Next time!
I did, however, stopped by to get some HK milk tea from this hole in the wall authentic HK place - Dragon Espresso on Sussex Street. I was really surprised that the lady who runs the place still remembers me! My friend and I used to frequent quite often but it has been a while since I last went after I moved to Melbourne.
I know it seems like I only ate desserts and sweets, I actually had much more main meals. :)
And... here are some complimentary photos of Sydney, which many places are barred off due to construction work along George Street.
Side note: 2 more working days!
