Saturday was a bit of an extremes kinda day. We bought some groooooovy bright red retro bar stools for the apartment (win!) then ate some pretty good Malaysian food for lunch (win!) and then… some biatch went and ran into the side of my car (lose). Don’t worry, Panu and I are both fine but my Marvin! My near-new Marvin. He’s now all injured down the left side and has to go off to car hospital to get all fixed up.
Sigh. Why. Why are there such losers on the road.
Anyhow, before my day went pear shaped, we had lunch at Sassy’s Red in the foodcourt up on Level 5 in Westfield Sydney. I’ve always wanted to try Sassy’s Red (I say always like I’ve been wanting to do this for an eternity but really, I only spotted them like two months ago) because I love Chinta Ria, their mama restaurant in Darling Harbour, although it’s errr, a little pricey.
When I saw that Sassy’s Red had fresh sugar cane juice, I was S-O-L-D.
I had the Chinta laksa [top] which was pretty good. Lots of chicken and fish cakes and whatnot. What I loved about the laksa is the thick gloopy soup. I hate watery laksas. Panu had something called “Billie” which basically is fried vermicelli noodles or “bee hoon”. What the heck is billie? I’ve never heard that name before but anyway… I’m also not the best specimen of a Malaysian person.
Here’s the menu if you want to squint. Hm. I kind of feel like eating loh bak right now.
So. Despite the pear shaped afternoon, I’m still super pleased with the red bar stools we bought from Freedom. We got two of these and just to mismatch and be a little funky, we got two of these. The apartment looks awesome with a splash of colour and you know what? Everything tastes better on red
