Recently Sydney has seen an influx of high-end Chinese restaurants, with two opening up shop in November at the Chinatown-end of the CBD. Today we’re visiting China Republic, located right next to the Ernst & Young entrance at World Square (enter via George St).
Since I last blogged about Grill’d, a whole lot more stores have been popping up over Australia with 9 now open in Sydney, which is great news because their burgers are so freaking delicious! Today we popped by the World Square branch which is right underneath Din Tai Fung and conveniently has window seats overlooking the open plaza area – great for people watching hehe.
“Holy Basil just opened a branch in the city the other week.”
That was the general gist of my conversation as I remembered being told that Holy Basil is known for having the best fried ice cream ever. And I was even more excited now that I can access this in the heart of the city. Yvn had previously been to the original Canley Vale restaurant and raved about its fried icecream, so we headed in together to see if the city store lived up to the hype.
