347 Kent Street, Sydney NSW 2000
Happy Birthday chocolatesuze!
Beware of cheerleaders wielding long sharp knives with a big smile.
With 73 confirmed RSVPs on the guest list for this birthday event it was set to be Sydney's biggest food bloggers meet up — and it certainly was, with 59 confirmed attending roll call. The dress theme was BACK TO SCHOOL and the tempting prize for best dressed was a 2.26kg giant gummy bear. I arrived fashionably late at 4.30 pm as all unruly school kids would and ended up miraculously able to fit into my final year school shirt which I'd kept as a personal memento since leaving. Matched with a striking afro and Christian Dior nerdy looking sunglasses complete with backpack I thankfully didn't miss out on any of the yummy food provided by Nuffnang which was just starting to be served as I arrived. It was great to meet up with some familiar faces of the food blogging community and to also finally meet other food bloggers which I follow and read. Time went quickly (too quickly) and I wished I could have stayed longer to chat with many more of the food bloggers but hopefully next time in future events.
Drinks were purchased from the bar and my choice tonight was a refreshing Japanese Asahi beer ($8). The Kent Street Living Room seem to be producing some very nice party food at the moment and stand outs for me tonight were the Chicken Satay, Grilled Prawn Skewers and Salt and Pepper Squid. The Mini Wagyu Burgers had potential although unfortunately didn't quite match teppanyaki's very impressive looking and tasting version at Launch Into Merivale. I'm not sure who made the chocolate cake but it was massive and very noice. Chocolatesuze looked very comfortable and a little scary at the same time with the very large birthday cake knife in hand. If you'd like a copy of your photo in this blog post please drop me an email and I'll email a copy back to you :-)
So I'm wondering who won best dressed in the end?
