Funky diner from a bygone era
I'm a sucker for a good rendang, and in Sydney, it can be hard to find. I noticed the funky and inviting Sassy's Red, while wandering through the food court at Westfield in the CBD, and on closer inspection, noticed it was an off shoot of Chinta Ria, Simon Goh's famed restaurant, which could only be a good omen.
I ordered the Beef Rendang and a side special of curry puffs. The Rendang would have been enough, but the special deal on the curry puffs was too good to miss.
The dine in tables remind me of the Paris feel of Shanghai in the twenties, and there's a great ambience considering it's a wall-less food court diner.
The prices are low, and the food is good, so if you can't afford the time or bill at the indulgent Chinta Ria, then go for a little luxe of a bygone era, takeaway style.
