Little Haveli, Taste of India in Sydney.

Little Haveli

Little Haveli

We went to an indian restaurant in Broadway the other day, called “Little Haveli”. We had a birthday dinner there.

Main curry such as butter chicken curry around $14, which you have to order a rice or nan for $2.
Or you can choose a plate with several kinds of curry with salad and nan which is around $10.
After meal Lassi is available for $ 2.50 as well. I had never drunk Lassi, but it does not taste like any other juice… it was like a Yogurt drink that I had in Japan, but it was not the same. Anyway I certainly loved it.
Indian culture often can be seen anywhere in Sydney.
There were not many Indians settled in New South Wales in the early 19th Century because most of them were workers. Besides, there were a number of convicts from India as well.
Major emigration beacon from around 1853, supported and organized by Sir William Burton, a judge in NSW. The number beacon to increase from then.
Especially, the number of Indian students in Australia increased from 30000 in 2004 to 97000 in 2009. Also, Indians are the 6th biggest overseas born population in Sydney.

Pepper Lunch!

Pepper Lunch!

I went to Pepper Lunch with my friends today, which is a steak restaurant in George Street.

I had actually knew Pepper Lunch, as it is a restaurant franchise in Japan. It is not like a usual steak restaurant as it is a sort of “fast-food” style one. It is cheap and fast. It is famous for “pepper lunch” plates which you are served with a piece of raw beef and rice in a hot plate. You mix them up, and then it is ready.

Pepper lunch was began by Kunio Ichinose 14 years ago. He was a chef and had his own restaurant in Tokyo, and he was one of the earliest who introduced induction cookers to cook steaks. Around that time, major steak restaurants came to have cheap dishes because of a liberalization of beef trade and strong Japanese yen. However, he had a strong belief that there had to be some new style of serving steaks if they wanted to serve them cheap. He then came up with the method of pepper lunch plate using metal plates and the induction cookers, and opened the first Pepper Lunch in Kanagawa, Japan. Continue reading

Full House, the Korean Restaurant

Bulgogi

Bulgogi

As I have lived in Sydney for months, I must say that the diversity of ethnic cuisines is one of the greatest things here. Chinese, Thai, Korean, Malaysian, French, Russian, Indian, Japanese… pretty much everything is within a walking distance from each other.

For a lunch on a sunny day, we decided to spend 10 dollars each at a Korean restaurant in the City. It is called Full House.
