Our friends, O and A, made the momentous decision to emigrate to France and said adieu to Sydney earlier this year. With their tickets bought and most things packed into boxes, the only thing left ...
It was in the middle of
snowboarding season winter when S sent me a coupon for Emmilou with a hearty endorsement that every time she’s been it’s been fab and that we should go. I, of course, couldn’t pass up such an offer and thought it’d be a nice break amidst the crazy weekends (there is sometimes too much of a good thing after all).
I’m traveling with my old buddies Astroboy and Rin and our attitude towards making actual plans is rather blasé, so it’s rather by chance that we find ourselves peckish just as we’re in the Movida vicinity.
I think it was around December that I heard a little fleeting teaser that Taste of Sydney will be on.. soon. Last year’s Taste was so much fun, so I was pretty excited. How excited? As soon as I found out the menu was online, F and I had worked out what to order in a matter of mere minutes and mushed our choices together for an epic mini-gastronomic adventure. And this was about two weeks before our Saturday session haha.
From the outside of the restaurant, the Burlington looks like a small, modern and rather unassuming location. The food was good. The company was good. The atmosphere was good. The service was good. I want to go back (again).
I loved the service here: the wait staff were so friendly, informative and very attentive. I also loved how they were dressed: vintage style, complete with elegantly vintage-styled hair. The food came out quite quick and we didn’t have to wait for long for a dish to arrive once an empty one was taken away.
F has had his eye on La Sangria ever since seeing a friend hold his birthday here. Deciding that he should try tapas once and for all, F offhandedly mentioned that he had reserved us a table one night. Bemused and curious to see how La Sangria stacked up to Encasa and Kika, I went along with his plans without much fuss.
