Sun of a Gun
Still one of my favorite places. The pimento cheese and shrimp will never get old.

salad of somewhat unknown ingredients
I’m very picky about pizza and Mozza is still one of the best. But the carrots were so fantastic that I had to go back for them.
shaved carrots, fennel, mizuna rabe, caraway yogurt & rye
meatballs, mozzarella di bufala, tomato, chili flakes & fresh oregano
I debated between a few places to visit on my last night in Sydney and so glad I listened to one of my favorite Momofuku employees and went to Automata.
dried tomato, sheep’s milk curd, black plum, shiso, tomato vinegar
cuttlefish, pickled celery, shallot oil, fennel & ink
steamed murray cod, turnip puree, daikon, roasted kelp oil
pork neck, eggplant, fermented cucumber & mustard
manchengo, pickled carrot, wild thyme honey, fennel pollen
The NYT review that came out right after this visit said it all more eloquently than I ever could. I do disagree that Seiobo has “less and less in common with the other Momofuku restaurants.” While there are not any typical Momofuku dishes, the entire experience felt identifiably Momofuku to me. And the marron was my favorite dish in Sydney.
