Bourke Street Bakery & Spice I am

Another eating (and shopping) day ! P'Ta, Ping and I started our day at Bourke Street Bakery.

2 snails & pain au chocolate.

Mocha, hot chocolate and flatwhite. (also my fav carrot cake)

My mocha was lovely, strong and not so sweet as in other cafes.

Isn't it such a beautiful table?

hahaha... of course we love taking (ourselves) pictures.
After that we went for a biggggggg shopping for skincare at warehouse... spent lots of money T_T. After that, we had lunch at Spice I am in Surry Hills.

Not many people yet when we arrived but a few minutes after, packed !

Since we had a big dinner waiting for us, we ordered only 2 serves of rice.

Som Tam : Thai spicy papaya salad. Super hot !!! Taste was just like you eat it Thailand, confirmed by P'Ta & Ping (Som tam's fan)

Pad Prik Khing Gai : Stir fried chicken with long bean in chilli paste .. so tasty. They are famous for Pad Prik Khing Moo Krob (Stir fried crispy pork skin) which I have tried... sinfully delicious !

Red curry with roasted duck...

OMG, THIS IS THE BEST RED CURRY I HAD SO FAR !! Even better than in Thailand. I don't know how to say but we were still dreaming of this dish. It was really really tasty, spicy, aromatic and flavourful (made me almost cry when eating it..hahaha). Even it was spicy, I was almost drinking the curry.
So far, here was the best Thai food place I have tried (but some dishes were just normal also). If you want to try Authentic Thai food, please come here and try order those dishes we had (recommend Crispy pork skin for Pad Prik Khing).

Extremely happy !

Ladybird said...

I love Surry Hills, it is such a great place to go out to eat. My hubby and I often go there without a place booked and we let our noses (and tummies) do the walking :)

Bourke St bakery RULES.

Bean Sprout's Cafe said...

Panda : You should try Spice I am and order the red curry with roasted duck.. but I have been there for 3 times.. some dishes are just normal but what we had in my post were very good... (The Pad prik khing, I recommend u to order the crispy pork skin instead)

Betty : haha.. I also have some places on the list but keep forgetting :D

Ladybird : There is another nice place I like... Lumiere cafe and patisseries... I love their bakery stuffs.. so nice ! Have u tried?

น่าหม่ำไปซะทุกเมนูเลยจ้า...Bourke Street Bakery baking ดีไหม๊อ่ะน้องจ๋า...ยังไม่มีวางขายที่อเมซอนเลย อยากได้ๆ

Bean Sprout's Cafe said...

panda : Thanksssssssss... its quite fun, isn't it?

bake-aholic : ดีมากๆ เลยค่ะ จ๋าชอบมาก ยังอ่านไม่ละเอียดเท่าไหร่ แต่ชอบเพราะชอบกินที่ร้านเค้าอ่ะค่ะ คิดไปว่า ทำแล้วคงอร่อยเหมือนเค้า ฮาๆ ดูคร่าวๆ แล้วละเอียดดี ตรงพวก croissant, ขนมปังไรงี้ รูปก็สวยมาก ดูแล้วอิ่มตาอิ่มใจ (หรือหิวแทนไม่รู้)
