Foodie Friday – Gami in my tummy!

Gami in my tummy (1)

A couple of weeks ago I had a nice night out with my bro, my sis and our loves and bubs at Gami. Well known for its KFC (Korean Fried Chicken), I’d been to Gami only once before with friends and loved it. I didn’t know there were multiple locations in the city and with my auto pilot on (tsk tsk tsk) we ended up at the opposite end of the city at the King st restaurant rather than the Lt Lonsdale one where we were booked. Nevertheless we made it just in time as the food came out and yet again Gami filled our tummies with fried chicken goodness.

We ordered:

Half half: Fried chicken with two flavours (you can choose from sweet chilli, spicy, sweet soy garlic, sweet mustard. Mmmmmm mouth-watering! You can also choose boneless)
Kim chi pancake
Fried dumplings
Mae Hwa Ju (plum wine) and some beer

For a cheat day, you can’t go wrong with KFC!

P.S Look out for the cabbage salad and pickled radishes that come with all chicken dishes…I couldn’t stop eating them – a perfect mix of crunch and salty sour flavour! Make sure you book ahead as it gets quite packed out.

Foodie Fridays – A bite at 8bit

A Bite at 8bit.

Our grey and dreary afternoon last week was totally turned around by our first time at 8bit. Bright colours, awesome tunes and happy staff and customers greeted us as we scrambled from the carpark in the pouring rain. As soon as we saw the menu line up of milkshakes, burgers, hotdogs and cheese and bacon fries we were sold.

We came in just in time to grab a table and just before the evening crowd. Daniel the arcade machine around the back and we loved all the little touches from the window decal to the table number holders. Memories of playing Gradius, California Games, Robocop 2, Alien 3, Mario Bros etc on our NES got me feeling a bit nostalgic as we basically inhaled our meal it was so good!
