Ms. G’s, Potts Point

DSC_3231_1200x800

It’s been a while since our last post, but during our hiatus we decided to refresh the site. What do you guys think?

We couldn’t think of a better way to kick start the blog again than with celebrating one of our own’s birthday!

Linda’s milestone birthday banquet was at the ever popular Ms G’s, which was very decently priced at $65 per person (plus 10% service fee if there’s more than 8 people) – especially considering that we were completely stuffed and actually had to take home food.

Mini Banh Mi

Mini Banh Mi

The mini banh mis comes with crisp pork belly or chicken katsu – either one, you can’t go wrong! Both were crumble-crisp and tender with wonderfully refreshing and zesty pickled vegetables, sandwiched between fresh, soft bread.

Ms G's Grilled Corn on the Cob

Ms G’s Grilled Corn on the Cob

Ms G’s grilled corn is topped with grated Parmesan and a squeeze of lime.

I love cheese and I love corn, so it’s not too big of a stretch to understand why I love Ms G’s corn on the cob… only, it was pretty spicy and I sadly had to give the rest of the corn to F.

Dan Hong's Crunchy Vegetable Salad

Dan Hong’s Crunchy Vegetable Salad

The crunchy salad is further made crunchy by toasted corn kernels and was dressed with a white soy & ginger vinaigrette.

Although I’m not the biggest fan of coriander, this salad was wonderfully refreshing and bright.

Kingfish Tostada

Kingfish Tostada

The kingfish tostada came with green papaya, guacamole, and red nahm jim.

Another light and crunchy dish, though this one had a lovely bit of a kick to it (everyone didn’t think I could handle it, but I did! Yay!)

Prawn Toast

Prawn Toast

Accompanying the crunchy prawn toast was yuzu aioli and herbs. While this dish was decent, it was overshadowed by the other dishes’ more fantastic combination of flavour and texture.

Nasi Goreng Hitam

Nasi Goreng Hitam

I love this twist on nasi goreng: the rice is fried with squid ink and chorizo. For me, no nasi goreng is complete without having a sunny-side up egg! (It also adds a nice colour contrast to the dish too)

Like with all other nasi gorengs I’ve tried, this was pretty spicy and I had to concede that it was above my chilli tolerance. Sadness.

Stir-fried Broccoli

Stir-fried Broccoli

The broccoli was stir-fried with house-made XO sauce and fried garlic for that extra kick of flavour. So simple, yet packed a punch in flavour.

Jow's Sweet and Sour Lamb Ribs

Jow’s Sweet and Sour Lamb Ribs

These sweet and sour lamb ribs were amazing. They were fall-off-the-bone tender and had such incredible flavour; a little squeeze of lime really lightened an otherwise meaty dish.

It was probably one of my favourite dishes of the night.

Grandma's Stirred Spicy Pork & Tofu Egg Noodles

Grandma’s Stirred Spicy Pork & Tofu Egg Noodles

I really, really tried to eat this, but was beaten by the heat in this dish. I was told it was pretty delicious though.

Crispy Pork Hock

Crispy Pork Hock

Served with the crispy pork hock was pink lady apple kimchi, 5 flavour sauce, lettuce, and herbs.

The pork hock was crispy as advertised while the meat was oh-so-tender and juicy. It was even better wrapped in lettuce with a pinch of sweet apple kimchi and a dash of sauce.

I was so incredibly full by this time that I didn’t think I could eat another mouthful, but I forged on – this dish was too tasty to go by without a second or fifth helping.

Stoner's Delight 2.0

Stoner’s Delight 2.0

Sometimes I think the saying “there’s always room for dessert” is true (second stomach for it and all that) because somehow I found that I still had some spare space for dessert.

I adored this jumble of a dessert made up of doughnut ice cream, peanut butter, raspberry jam, candied bacon, potato chips, mars bar slice, and banana fritter.

It was equally sweet and savoury, alternating between each with every delightful, rich mouthful.

Dirty Passion (Thai Edition)

Dirty Passion (Thai Edition)

Some at the table thought the Stoner’s Delight 2.0 was a bit too rich for their tastes and favoured the Dirty Passion more. It’s not hard to see why, the combination of coconut sticky rice, jackfruit, rambutans, Thai aromatic crunch, chilli, and coconut sorbet was wonderfully bright, zesty, and sharp.

Passionfruit S'more Cake

Passionfruit S’more Cake

I’m sorry this photo doesn’t do Linda’s cake any justice, but in spite of the graininess, I think its magnificence still shines through.

This bad boy is a momofuku malt cake layered with milk and ovaltine crumbs, passionfruit marshmallow, and passionfruit chocolate glaze. If that’s not enough, it is then topped with maltesers, crumbs, passionfruit marshmallows, chocolate passionfruit macaron and fresh passionfruit.

It was, naturally, nothing short of amazing!

Ms G’s is a pretty fun place to hold a function: the atmosphere is cheery (as well as trendy), the staff are lovely and attentive, and the food overall is pretty darn fantastic (not to mention some awesome cocktails too). Ticks all the boxes for a fun night out in my books!

Happy birthday, Linda! Hope you had as much fun (and ate as much) as we did.
Sorry it took me so long to write this up haha
