Sunday lunch – Bird Cow Fish

212 A larger group than usual today at the Bird Cow Fish in Crown Street. Sirdan and I had lamb. Great!

Afterwards Simon H and I dropped into the new Surry Hills Library which he hadn’t seen before. He was impressed.

On my way home I noted good use being made of the new skateboard area in Ward Park.

Good to see.

Polish food and a very hot day

Sunday lunch was at Alchemy, a newish Polish cafe-restaurant in Crown Street Surry Hills. Hungry Girl gives an account which Sirdan and I would agree with!

A Polish gem amongst the many fantastic restaurants along Crown St. The food and service were great and the prices were reasonable. Perfect if you’re looking for some hearty, comforting food during winter.

I ordered pork and Sirdan beef. Somehow we managed to eat each other’s dish rather than our own, but it was all good. 🙂 We also concluded that Polish people are rather good looking, to judge from some we saw…

Trouble is it isn’t winter – though that was a plus in the people watching department. In fact today may well have been the hottest November day on record in Sydney. At 3pm it was 42C at Sydney Airport. 1982 is the official record (41.6C).

Yet another Sunday lunch in Surry Hills

We had our main at Chinese Whisper, sadly not to be with us for too much longer. For dessert we went over the road to a new Polish place. That’s Sirdan of course.

They have some interesting mains here, so we resolved to try them in the near future.

Bit of a mystery

There certainly was a lot of activity around the nearby housing estate yesterday. No clue in the news this morning.

Perhaps it was a jumper. It does happen… But I’m not sure so many emergency vehicles and officers would be responding to that.

We had been hoping Mr Rabbit would join is at Chinese Whisper today, but it was not to be. Meal was great anyway…
