Post WTAC Hangs

bbq
That Lebanese BBQ! After 3 long days at Eastern Creek, we just couldn’t make it in to watch Formula Drift live, so instead we hung out at Veds place and watched the live-stream on his massive TV instead (which was absolutely epic). Cheering on Jabbit and Schembri from Blaze Unit as well as Beau Yates was awesome.

Scirocco
Matt from Camden GTI brought along his amazingly clean Scirocco.

Which is powered by a MK4 GTI (turbo) engine.

2spaces
Later that night we hit Mary’s in Newtown and spotted this douche taking up 2 parking spaces at the Dendy Cinema Carpark.

Green Peppercorn Lao Restaurant

greenpeppercorn_tuktukframe

greenpeppercorn_asahi
My beer of choice!

greenpeppercorn_asahiblack
I was introduced to Asahi Black. Crispy going down like a normal Asahi, but a slightly malty aftertaste, and much darker in colour too. I like!

greenpeppercorn_lettuce
Crunchy texture of this dish was fantastic.

greenpeppercorn_sweets
Warm sweet puffs for dessert.

greenpeppercorn_icecream
And ice-cream!

greenpeppercorn_icecreamcheers
Here’s cheers!

greenpeppercorn_bags
Showbags on exit were a really nice touch!

Last night we dined at ​Green Peppercorn situated above the Civic Hotel, corner of Pitt and Goulburn Streets. A restaurant which takes it’s inspiration from the streets and markets of Laos and Thailand. We chilled in the outdoor garden, where you’re outside inside. It’s a beer garden that teleports you to the streets of Thailand! A chill place to be with good tunes, a tuk-tuk, a bar and outdoor kitchen. Highly recommend!

Fay taking some pics of the waves crashing on the rocks.

My BFAM (Brother From Another Mother) Christian Layugan is in town from Miami (check his awesome work here) and he brought his girl Fay along too (follow her here). Sun was out so we put my BBQ to work again (well, BFAM did all the cooking!), and we hot the rock pool too (glad I had a dip yesterday as it’s raining and grey today!). I rarely get to see my BFAM, but when I do, it’s just like yesterday, got to love that, right?!

Monday Fundays

chopper
Parking at the Helipad/shooting range. Was another beautiful day (thanks Sydney!) so we thought we’d go for adventure time and check out Cape Banks, Botany Bay.

headland
Cape Banks Aquatic Reserve, if you look closely, you’ll spot the shipwreck of SS Minmi on the far right which hit the rocks and split in 2 in 1937.

group_wreck
The guys checking out the wreck.

krysti_wreck
Despite the huge in-coming waves, brave no fear Krysti decided to jump on board!

bridge
Group shot!

bbq-outside
Everyone was getting hangry after adventure time, the call was made to hunt down Korean BBQ. David suggested Goldmart, one of his fave places in Chatswood where you can eat and smoke outside.

coals
Watch your step! Hot coals! I felt like I was eating on the streets of Asia. So awesome that places like this still exist in Sydney.

marinated
Goldmart is actually a Korean grocery store, inside the grocery store is the butcher where you purchase your fresh meats and you pay for your beers and rice inside the store too (super cheap at around $25/head all up including beers). Then you sit outside on plastic chairs (was funny watching the locals get wasted and fall off them at the end of the night!).

meat
There’s a good selection of un-marinated meat too. Wagyu is always a go!

cass
Cass, crispy goodness!

beef
The beef. So good.

wagyu
Wagyu was so good it didn’t even need sauce.

Mary’s

Mary’s with Jess. I’m always craving a Mary’s cheeseburger (with bacon, of-course).

mkvr32
I always make a b-line for the Dendy Cinema carpark. Easy parking, next door to Mary’s and I like how my car looks in it!

Sushi of Masuya

The Deluxe Sushi Platter. Delicious!

masuya_sushi2
Both sea eel and freshwater eel, scampi, urchin, salmon and tuna.

masuya_oysters
Deep Fried Oysters were yum.

masuya_wayubeef
Wagyu and Katsu Skewers.

Previously Musashi, and now renovated and under new management, Nanami wanted to take me out to a Japanese restaurant that her and her Mum have been eating at lately; Sushi of Masuya. She knew that I’d been craving Japanese food since returning from my trip to Japan!

The restaurant looked lovely from the outside, and so spacious on the inside (so not used to the space after Japan trip!). The staff were friendly and the food was great! Seafood was fresh and dishes were traditional with a slight twist. 100% would recommend, and definitely will be back to try their Sukiyaki and Shabu Shabu too.

Momofuku

Deep-fried short rib with snails and asparagus, definitely my fave dish of the night.

Anise & chervil meringue on a bed of corn custard.

jess_me
Jess and I, wasted, seated right in the middle on the bench overlooking the kitchen, best seats in the house!

Jess wanted to get dressed up one last time before she goes overseas on her epic adventure, so she booked us in to Momofuku for an amazing meal. I’d been once before back in 2012, but last time I didn’t do the beverage pairing. This time we went for the full pairing and my God we got trashed! SO much booze, so awesome! The menu was completely different to last time too, the chefs as well, but that same David Chang iPod playlist was in full force with AC/DC blasting from the speakers.

Jess took photos of all the food, and booze. I took some notes, but my notes got worse as the night rolled on (haha). I’m sure her blog post will be much more comprehensive than mine, look out for it on her blog soon.

Nanami’s Latest Piece

nanami_heartstrings
Caught up with Nana-Chan today. She’s finished a piece she started a while back so I got to have a good look at it.

heart
As always, you’ve really got to check out her work in real life. The amount of details she manages to capture always surprises me.

hands
This time around she’s used 3D ink for the string in this piece, again, just has to be seen in real life.

doublebay
We then ducked out for a bite at Australian 18 Footers. her Dad’s old Yacht Club in Double Bay. Such a beautiful day for fish and chips!
nana
Nana, Paul was with us too.

calamari
Calamari.

fishandchips
I ordered Fish & Chips! Yew!

dock
Soon after I took this pic a charter fishing boat anchored up and a big group of drunken yobbos all walked off the boat with huge King Fish. All I could think about was SASHIMI!!!!!!!!!
