Like that time you were looking for your glasses while you were wearing them, or the other time you searched your entire house for the TV remote but of no avail even though it was sitting right next to you on the couch the whole time?

So here’s the long overdue review on this popular Malaysian restaurant.

IMG_20150912_234512To be frank, I struggled quite a bit before I started writing this blog post.

Hey, but if your recently-turned Sydneysider friend dragged you back to the same place within a week after her first visit, it deserves a post. So here are some tasties we have chowed down at Black Star Pastry.

Bavarian Bier Café Entertainment Quarter, Sydney

PhotoGrid_1421581576426To be honest, I don’t usually eat at Entertainment Quarter. But the other night Mr. D and I were there to see Hobbit 3, so we decided to get some dinner before the movie.
