Sydney oh Sydney, how i’ve missed you! Sydney has been the home of my sister, Sam for many years now. I have visited her several times and i enjoy this wonderful city. The people, warm, the atmosphere, laid back and the food…. Ahhhumazing!
This trip is quite different from all our other trips to Sydney. This time my son, Yes, Batboy, will be heading off to University here and I am “dropping” him off. Although this is quite a difficult and emotional time for me “to let go” of him, I am quite excited to see how the Lord directs this new stage in both our lives.
This is our GO TO place as soon as we step foot in Sydney. Marigold Restaurant, located in China town, on George street is THE YUM CHA place for Andrew and me. Our last trip to Sydney, we ate there at least 3-4 times a week. We love our yum cha!
Yum cha, also known as Ban ming, is a Chinese style morning or afternoon tea, which involves drinking Chinese tea and eating dim sum dishes. Yum cha in Cantonese literally means “drink tea”, while ban ming is a more poetic “tasting of tea”. (Wikipedia)
Dim sum refers to a style of Chinese food prepared as small bite-sized or individual portions of food traditionally served in small steamer baskets or on small plates. (Wikipedia)
As soon as the elevator doors open, a large dining room welcomes you with the sounds and smells of a delicious yum cha dining experience. Lots of women and men pushing their steel trollies filled with deeeelish steamed, fried and stir-fried goodies awaiting for them to be devoured. Batboy and I were psyched!
If ever you are in Sydney and craving for delicious dimsum, come and visit Marigold Restaurant and be prepared to fully enjoy your meal. HAPPY EATING.
