Spicy Food Court Dining when you both take mild.
I’ll admit it’s hard to take a food court dining experience seriously, but I can also attest that just because it’s in a food court doesn’t mean the quality of food is any lesser than if served in a stand alone restaurant.
In fact, my favourite Sydney CBD meal is actually located IN a food court.
Superfly is a Chinese and Dumpling restaurant located in the level 5 food court dining precinct at Westfield Sydney. Not hard to spot, just look for the giant SUPERFLY sign.
I’ve walked past this place so many times, and yet never thought to come here despite me being Chinese and loving Chinese food.
Well, first time for everything.
First thing my friend Izzy says to me: Do you like spicy? I love spicy food, as long as it’s mild to medium, because depending on the type of cuisine those levels are interchangeable!!
The menu is marked by 1-3 chills, which instinctively I knew even just 2 chillis was probably too much to handle… YOLO.
Meat Dry Pot. 2 chillis. Quail eggs, beef rolls, beef tripe, luncheon meat and vegetables - YEP this is very spicy! This is the type of spicy where the chilli sticks to the back of the throat. Have some Prune Juice handy. Delicious, but just eat cautiously.
Spicy Braised Beef Soup. One chilli. This actually wasn’t spicy for me at all, and yet Izzy was blowing her nose from all the heat.
Sweet and Spicy Pork Dumplings. This is a MUST ORDER. I could eat tens of these in one go.
Fried Rice Cake with Brown Sugar Syrup. Loved the crispy texture, and the brown sugar syrup was quite lovely.
Red Bean Bun. Nice and smooth red bean texture, good bun to bean ratio.
Like I said, mild and medium is interchangeable. Be cautious and prepare for the consequence of your spicy food decisions!
