Girly catch-ups are the best! We headed to David Jones to grab a quick lunch in the city. An old birthday gift card came in useful to discount my meal :D
There is a wide variety of prepared food available, including a Noodle Bar and a fancy Oyster Bar, but we made a bee-line for the Sushi Bar. My friend recommended her favourite, the Salmon Tataki.
Salmon Tataki ($9.80)
Each piece of sushi is lightly seared with a torch and drizzled with Japanese mayo and a light teriyaki sauce. Thin slices of red onion and a dollop of wasabi added some bite, but I went light on the soy sauce because the teriyaki sauce was already lovely and salty. Yummy! Luckily I was not too hungry because I had a late breakfast, so the small serving of sushi was adequate.
Delicious tempting goodies
I was keen to grab some sweet treats, so we wandered over to the section that sells cakes, pastries, cookies, and macarons! We were spoilt for choice and eventually decided to split six macarons between us (because it’s slightly cheaper if you buy a set of six).
Assorted macarons (6 for $13.50)
We made an awesome pyramid so I could take a cute photo of the macarons before we gobbled them. My macaron flavours were passionfruit, hazelnut, and salted caramel. Sometimes macarons just taste like sugar, but all of the ones I sampled at David Jones were very tasty and packed with flavour. I would come back with a friend just for the macarons because they are inexpensive and colourful!
We giggled about an unusual guy who sat next to my friend, acted like a fortune-teller, then told her that he loved her. What a strange end to our meal…
