When we did our first Sydney Free Day Walking Tour on the second day, the guide highly recommended that we try Kangaroo meat, which tastes delicious when cooked to medium rare or rare, but becomes very tough when overcooked.
She also suggested a few places that we can go, and we eventually came to the Dining Room at The Orient, after our second Sydney Free Night Walking Tour by the same company.
It was actually a very busy pub on the ground floor, a restaurant on the second floor (or first floor, according to Australians) which was relatively much quieter, and a night club on the top floor.
Fish & Bird Platter
A rather popular eatery located on the top floor of AMKHub, the queue was usually pretty long!
Probably because of the reasonable pricing with only GST and no additional service charge (plus student discounts), and relatively good food, thus making this place a popular choice for students! This place is also halal-certified 🙂
It’s a rather fuss-free casual place. Basically, you fill up the order chit based on whatever you fancy from the menu, go queue to order and pay up, go get cutlery and free warm or cold water while waiting for the food to be served!
Simple Fish & Chips
Micky’s Fish Bar was a short 10-minute walk from Paddington Station, and was a no-frills place that Michelin-star chef Heston Blumenthal (he’s one of the celebrity chefs in MasterChef Australia) frequented during his childhood. Simple menu, simple food.
Hubby enjoyed his Cod & Chips, while I preferred the Haddock & Chips. The fish fillets were big in portion, fresh and the batter was excellent! The over-generous chips were thick and yummy. However, hubby preferred the mushy peas at The Tiles.
This is where Prince George of Cambridge emerged on July 22, 2013!
It was a lovely catchup with M and her hubby, and we thoroughly enjoyed the chit-chat session under the friendly atmosphere. We also exchanged (our little) tips on London sight-seeing!
After dinner, we had a bit of recreational activity, where hubby and I posed at the same spot outside St Mary’s Hospital, where Prince William and Kate Middleton emerged from, with their newborn baby, haha!

Tomorrow we would be flying off to Iceland so we needed to drop off one luggage at The Rubens At The Palace today (so that we only bring one luggage with us to Iceland). Side note: The Rubens were great to allow us to store our luggage for 4 days!
We had just dropped off our luggage at The Rubens and were searching for a light lunch, as we had a large sausage roll from The Pasty Shop just before we boarded the tube. Found Tiles Restaurant and Wine Bar just diagonally across and serving fish and chips, so we popped right in!
