Seeing as it’s Throwback Thursday (Guam time, of course), I thought it would fun to take a look back at the food-tastic time I had at Taste of Sydney back in 2014.
For 4 days, the beautiful Centennial Parklands is transformed into Sydney’s ultimate tasting menu. My husband and I were able to catch the first 2 days and boy, it was a foodie’s heaven! Where else would you be able to sample some of Sydney’s best when it comes to culinary finds?
We started things off feeling adventurous–Grilled lamb testicles with pickled onions. I could of eaten a dozen of these babies! Sweet and firm in texture….I would compare it to fresh scallops. The acidity from the pickled onions paired perfectly with the…pair. 😉 We proceeded to order up some bomb sliders from Chur Burger and a couple of other places.
Along with trying out all the amazing eateries, we hit up the booths of award-winning wineries, artisan producers and boutique exhibitors. We walked away with a tote bag full of snacks, a couple bottles of wines, and trinkets.
With all the savory food items we did enjoy our fair share of sweets. We snagged a handful of these dainty colorful eclairs each filled with a yummy flavor like pina colada, sweet potato or pistachio.The sweet aroma coming from this booth was incredible!
Throughout the day, because it was a nice sunny one….we were downing refreshing cups full of Rekorderlig Cider. It was some where after the 5th cup, when I started to feel mellow and I could feel my face was flushed….something that occurs when I’ve had alcohol! Upon reading the label on the bottles…I realized there was an alcohol content of 5%! What? These delish ciders tasted like fruity Italian sodas!
Taste of Sydney is always on our go-to list whenever we head to Sydney for holiday. For foodies, this is a must! You will not be disappointed! We signed up for updates on their webpage and there are some great offers and discounts that you can take advantage of.
