Wai Lam and I had about a half an hour window of time on Saturday to look around the Spectrum Playground. Spectrum Now is another festival (I'm actually unclear about what exactly it is) and there is a food market/music thing going on in The Domain for it. I'm a sucker for food in this market kind of setting but apparently no one else really cares. That's okay, fewer lines for me!
The Domain is nice, I'm not sure why we snub it as a picnic location. I like walking through Sydney Hospital to get there too, nicest looking hospital in Sydney possibly?
N2 and Black Star Pastry are doing a collab stall and Wai Lam got the ice cream version of Black Star's watermelon and strawberry cake. I've never tried this cake. I am still not convinced about strawberry and watermelon in a cake.
I crossed over to the Messina stall, Sydney's OTHER favourite gelato place...
They were doing twists on classic ice creams/chocolate bars. I got an ice-cream bar with hazelnuts, dulce de leche, and covered in chocolate...
Things got a bit messy.
Wai Lam managed to eat hers more elegantly.
I think this ends on Sunday so if you're looking for a nice deserted place with food stalls and clean grass to set up on, check it out!
