What else I’m consuming…

I used to be not too long ago in Sydney on my ebook tour and had TWO nice meals! First cease was a model new restaurant referred to as Membership Fontana in Redfern which was enjoyable and scrumptious – cherished the Sardine polpette and pane fritto. Second, a ravishing dinner at Bistrot 916. Basic French fare like scallop quenelle and steak frites – all the pieces was divine. Additionally cherished the sautéed spinach. Yum, Sydney!
