      Went here a few weeks ago. Most amazing restaurant that only seats a dozen or so people. Need to book a month or two in advance if you want to go on a Friday or Saturday night:

      ...view of chef Daisuke Miyamoto (of famed Flinders Lane yakitori bar Yu-U) at work.

      I've never been to Hajime, but Yu-U is fantastic

      Also, there is (was?) a mock meat place in Dickson in Canberra which is really tasty.

      Went here for dinner the other night: http://www.mandarinoriental.co...cular/ The chef was trained at El Bulli. It was a great experience and the food was delicious, but more of a novelty than anything else.

      Does anyone know how long the booking is for El Bulli? I have to try that one day given they have consistently top the charts...

      I've called them to keep a table free for you this week.
      Ask for Hose.

      I do not know of a good wog burger milk bar anymore?

      anyone?

      maybe down in Adelaide or perth, somewhere they still have not phased them all out yet.

      Country Victoria, esp. NW. We've had good genuine wog burgers in Echuca (Hare Street) and also Swan Hill in the main drag. There's a good fish n' chippery at the north end of town (Swan Hill) that does good burgers too. (not wog burgers tho)

      There was an article on it in the weekend colour thingy. They take bookings over a 1-2 week period in October for the following year.

      That fatboi from Masterchef was writing about it.

      Sounds like the royal height of wank to me.

      I was thinking, with the nice weather coming on, it's about time for a Rib Eye fest at my place.

      No I like that cut! Cook mine last next time or I am happy to do it myself after you do yours. I have it rare anyway so doesn't take long to make.

      If it's as good as the last lot, Flaps and Yianni need to plan their trips to Melbourne around your availability.

      Seriously? If so, how's Thursday 12 November? That's the only time I can do it that week. If that suits, I'll start a new thread.

      Oh more than happy to take you to a good laksa place or two - along with Mike who has been moaning about the lack of Laksa places in Melbourne.

      Next time your in town, try Rockpool Bar and Grill. Best steaks ive ever had and Ive had alot. They do cost $100+ for a good Wagyu but its worth it. Have a drink at spice downstairs before and order a 'monkey'.

      p.s. Went to flower drum once, full of gatto wannabes so stick with supper inn everytime im in town.

      Lets do some living after we die.

      overhyped by far imo, i love a good steak, best in sydney is Prime as far as steaks go.


    34. 10-02-2009 09:18 PM #105
      I think that is kind of kewl.

      I have not seen anything like that in Sydney, mind you I dont get out that much.
