Up, Upper Deck and Away! Eat, and Eateries Await!

We popped back to Sydney to visit our folks and friends, and tend to some personal beeswax. One of those beeswax includes going back to our fave restaurants in Sydney. After 1.5 years away, We sorely missed the authentic multicutural food of Sydney, not foreign food cooked by Singaporeans, for Singaporeans, but by people originated from those countries for their fellow country men (more in my diary entry "Quests for Authenticity" dated 15-07-2009).
My nostolgic food list is long, and too long to visit them all in our short visit of less than 2 weeks. So we came up with a short list, representing the best of their national cuisine that we had tried and tested (never mind being a guinea pig in the name of science - ok, food. I'm refused to be patted. I take cash, and don't take traveller's cheques. Do they still exist?):
---> Arthur's Pizza on Oxford St in Paddington. You can walk off the heavy Italian carbo of dough and pastas by roving the Victorian terraces around the area. Keep your eyes peeled for the cast-iron laceworks on the balconies. For something more racy and less lacy, head south west toward CBD on Oxford St, and you might have a gay time (if that's your thang) exploring the (sub/counter) culture of people with different sexual orientations coming out on Oxford Street in the southing end (so to speak). Leave your gaydar at home. And glance at men who really take care of themselves. Eye-popping, in-your-face homoerotica abounds (books of men in latex wraped in plastics inside glass windows. You won't find riddles wrapped in mystery inside an enigma. Leave your imagination at home). I frequented a couple of coffee shops here.
