Thread: Sydney is a backwater!

  1. #1

    Sydney is a backwater!

    I am not aware of any cafe or restaurant in Sydney which serves potato bread, never mind an Ulster Fry. To think that we consider ourselves a cosmopolitan city?
    Shame Sydney Shame!

    (Try Perth....)
    I never make the same mistake twice.

    I make it five or six times.

    Just to be sure.

    Armagh mate, & then here in the 70's. Have never seen potato bread served anywhere, I won't even contemplate finding soda or wheaten bread.

    Used to be a 'scottish' butchers up a back road near coggee could get tatty scones, square suasage, Irn bru and tunnocks tea cakes, think he had highland toffee too.
    Used to take a bus there regularly and then when i got a motor used to do runs and clean the boy out

    Been almost 20 years since i was there, think it was at the bottom end of the beach u go up a hill and turn right back towards 'the junction', memories a bit fuzzy from those days.
    'm sure some other bit's in about bondi/junction or kings cross might do them. Dunno if any of the irish pubs do breakfast's, Cock and bull mibee

    Is there not a shoppng centre somewhere that used to have a scottish shop too somewhere, havenae got a clue where it was thou, think it was inland central syndney somewhere towards the olympic bit, possibly 1 down by the opera house too in that wee touristy shop bit. Used to know every irn bru shop in sydney back in the day

    Hi tignme.
    A 'Fadge' has an entirely different meaning here .

    Irish shop on Parramatta Rd Stanmore, also think there is still a Irish shop in Stephen Road Botany sold soda bread fresh plus all the ingredients for you to make your own..
    Melbourne has a place called the Last Jar its homemade Irish food is good, Elisabeth st/rd can't remember but worth the visit.
