There’s nothing like a bit of table sharing, food sharing and photo sharing with a few fellow Sydney food bloggers.
Me and my Mr were just walking down Victoria St, Potts Point eagerly anticipating our long awaited dinner at Ms G’s when we bump into another Ms G. Ms Gianna, that is, the heel wearing co-writer of @TheEmptyFridge and her partner in love and food Demos.
Both, a little tipsy from the Sydney Cellar Door festival in Hyde Park, Ms G and D insist we sit with them; moving from their table and helping us avoid a 20 minute wait.
They’ve already started eating so we get to ordering, firstly our cocktails. These come in two categories, packaged and unpackaged we both go for packaged – a green iced tea with vodka, apple and grapefruit bitters and ms g’s famous yuzu slushie with limoncello, yuzu juice and orange bitters.

We’re both so hungry so we start with a couple of ms G’s mini banh mi and the plate of pickles. The banh mi are basically burgers with either pork belly or chicken katsu. We both go for the pork belly, it’s crispy and tender inside and the burgers are bite sized enough to eat in two mouthfuls. As I may have mentioned about 100 times before, I like anything pickled and the pickled chilli’s are a nice addition to my burger.

Now at this point in the meal, a group of four Sydney food bloggers look up from their concentrated ingesting and see two famous faces walk in. Sophie Faulkner and an unidentified male, followed by Sarah and Lachlan Murdoch. This added even more excitement to a night of spontaneous meetings and bubble tea.

The night didn't end there though, it was time for dessert and somehow (and I don't know how) we ended up with all four desserts. Apologies in advance for the pictures of only three desserts, two very hungry males couldn't wait for us to take the photo. Warning: drooling may occur
