FOOD, Friends, HOLIDAYS, Living in... Australia, Uncategorized SYDNEY: shopping with friends at Paddington 21 January 2010

My girl friends and I decided to hit Paddington on a sunny Saturday, since the fabulous Paddington Markets are on then and we could also potter around all the shops. Paddington easily requires a full day to shop through – and even so, you’ll need to pop into each store quickly. I love it because it’s along along street with little shop fronts, instead of in a big shopping center (yawn!). Paddington’s also home to lots of little Australia boutiques, which I absolutely adore. We actually did a TON of shopping… but you can’t really tell ‘cos all the photos are of, surprise, food. Heh.

But first, brunch! A fabulous, tasty meal at Tiger Mottle, tucked behind the main street of Paddington and offering great food and lovely coffees. It was so nice to sit down and chill out with friends, and then shop up a storm 😛 I miss doing all these great, outdoorsy girly things!


Tiger Mottle. Cute name, no?

Us!

Luscious mushrooms and cream cheese on toast

“Green Eggs and Ham”, haha! Pesto, eggs, ham and bread

“Bubble and squeak” – bacon, cabbage(?!), peas(?!?!), poached eggs, potatoes

Poached eggs, roast tomato, spinach and toast

Just all round strange

A somewhat more normal pic 🙂

I looooved my latte

Big berry smoothies

Happily fed

SWEATING LIKE CRAZY, it was stinkin’ hot

Later, for tea, we stopped by our favourite French cafe and had these ‘lil treats. Yum.
