Roast duck and final farewells

On my last evening in Australia, we went fancy and headed to the O Bar in Sydney. Not only is the food exceptionally good, the location is fantastic. You sit on the 47th floor of a huge round building. What’s so special about the 47th floor, you’re thinking, aren’t you? Well, the 47th floor revolves! In the space of approximately 90 minutes, you are treated to an all round view of the whole of Sydney while the sun sets.

To start with, we had Harbour Bridge almost in front of us then as we moved slowly to our right, the bridge moved around til we could just about spot the Sydney Opera House while the sun set and then off out into the other parts of town then the suburbs then back to the bridge.

In this last photo, you can just about make out the shape of the bridge again in lights.

The food was very very good. We started with bread and warm olives.

Then for my entrée, I had a scallop and swordfish ensemble that was cooked perfectly.

The scallops were amazing.

Danda got the spicy prawn fishcakes which were also pretty epic because I was kind and tasted them for him, to check them, you know, for like poisons or anything.

For my main, I had the soy roasted duck, which is almost the best duck I’ve ever eaten in my life (the best being this).

We were all a bit stuffed and didn’t want to push it by ordering dessert so we went for a walk around Circular Quay instead, after leaving.
