5. Giant Bunny Light Sculpture by the Harbour Bridge. You will find 5 enormous inflated bunny (maybe wallaby or kangaroo) glowing brightly at Hickson Road Reserve. Take a photo and it will turn out like you cut out a silhouette of a bunny.
What's the point of a night out without good food?
You don't need to worry. Vivid Sydney has become more than just a light show, it's now offering the very best in food and dining.
After all the amazing light shows, I am sure you will be tired and hungry. This year, the food on offer are superbly delish. There are numerous pop up food stalls and food trucks hitting the streets and serving up some of the best street food in prime location. The hungry spectators will be pleased to see gourmet street food and not the old boring sausage sizzles.
Tonight, we focused on street truck and food stalls for an assortment of delicious cheap finger and gourmet food instead of the posh fine dining restaurants overlooking the iconic harbour views.
It's hard to beat a warmly toasted, well-seasoned famous pull pork bun. Served with mustard cabbage and drizzled in sweet bourbon BBQ sauce ($12). The crispy fries ($5) are indeed crispy. Fresh from the deep-fryers. They are the perfect comfort food in winter.
The aroma of pulled pork and potato is enough to entice a solidly-packed crowd gathered around this small food stall.
Mexican street food hit the spot with Sydney-siders. Golden crunchy taco corn chips served with flavourful wagyu beef chili con carne, cheddar, house tomato sauce, chimichurri and a giant dollop of sour cream on top ($10). It is certainly moreish and a hearty comfort meal.
3. Psychedelic Psyndaes Gelato dessert from Messina:
You can NOT go pass Messina's first ever Vivid event. They are offering irresistible $10 dessert tub every night.
Tonight, we got the Kaleidoscope Bombe dessert tub, and it contained mango sorbet gelato, raspberry puree and crushed shortbread crunch. All topped with a large torched soft Italian meringue. A gorgeous dessert to be enjoyed under the light festival.
Now I am keen to try the other 3 flavours - Trifley Trippy, Psychedelic Spider and Silly Cone Chips
