- Value for money
A golden feast When chefs from all over Sydney have finished their service they head to this joint for a midnight meal. In fact, the place is heaving come 2am. These guys specialise in live seafood (think: lobster and mud crab, abalone and pippies usually cooked with ginger and shallots or stir-fried with XO sauce) and banquet-style eating so it’s great for groups and even better when you can split the bill with eight others. Don’t be discouraged by the fact that none of the live seafood comes with a price tag (the ‘market price’ is usually reasonable when you compare it to good quality shellfish available around town). Just eat up and worry about possibly selling a non-vital organ to settle your bill later – the lobster with Sichuan sauce is well worth it. Best dish: You can’t go past the lobster with garlic and shallots.
