It’s always a challenge finding terrific places to eat/drink for visitors to Sydney. You can rely on your local favourites (of course), but then you realise they lack a bit of the “wow” factor. There again, you can fall back on Sydney cliches with harbour views. When Robert and Sandra told me they would be in Sydney (visiting from Stockholm), and were hoping to catch up for a meal, I made a few suggestions. This is what I suggested in an email.
Also in the day I heard about Uncle Mings, so we added that into the schedule.
In the end, I chose the first couple of starters, and they were in charge of the remainder.
We started at 5.30 at Uncle Mings.
Cocktails excellent. Dumplings very good. Atmosphere – had the wow factor. Very friendly staff. The place was pretty full by 6.30.
At 6.30, we went to Mojo Record Bar (a few doors up from Uncle Mings).
Beer. Terrific atmosphere. Record store angle is great. Very friendly staff. A good place for an after Uncle Mings beer. http://www.mojorecordbar.com/
A wonderful night with two really fantastically interesting people… and as I said as we parted company… “I get to see you twice this year”, as I’ll be in Stockholm in July. 98 days until I start my mid-year holiday.
