Where to start with food. Well I’d say there are plenty of places to start with food, especially in Sydney were there are so many places to try new and wonderful things. For me though, I’d have to say I want to start with the barbecue pork bun. This for me had been an elusive treat, that I was starting to miss. I’d moved to Sydney in 2013, I couldn’t find them anywhere. You’d naturally think perhaps they could be found at Chinese restaurants, but there was none to be found.
Somewhere along the line, I found there to be a source in a take away joint. However they didn’t live up to what I remember back in Perth. Back in Perth there used to be a lovely little dim sum restaurant called the Green inn (Think it’s the New Moon now), were the pork buns were always light, fluffy and full of nice pork. Haha nothing like I could make at home or whip out of the freezer. Sadly, I found a good source in China town. There was a Dim Sum restaurant, but it’s a bit pricy to go there for a barbecue pork bun. Especially if that was all you wanted.
One day I was exploring Sydney. My fiancée and I were exploring the Bondi junction. In a little alley way, that was a little bit rough round the edges, but full of lovely smells amongst the hustle and bustle of people we found a little dim sum shop. I think after a few years of hunting for a great barbecue pork buns, here it was. I wasn’t even looking for them at the time.
The China Dim Sim Kitchen is amazing. The pork buns are delicious and great priced. The only shame is the long hike from home to Bondi Junction, at an hour (Haha and the rest sometimes). It’s really become a tradition. Whenever I’m in the area, I grab pork buns from there. Saturday was a hot one, of almost 43 degrees and being stuck inside with the A.C. Sunday was great to get out and about again finally. It was the perfect time to finish the weekend on a feast in barbecue pork bun heaven.
