Espresso & Matcha's Gluttonous Sojourn to Sydney - Day 7

On our last day at Sydney, we finally managed to wake up in time to have breakfast. Why would that be the case, you ask? Because our plane was to leave at 10AM. So we decided to have breakfast before we left. Considering there are significant amounts of HK restaurants in Sydney, I felt a little disappointed that we didn't have time to go to any of them, so for breakfast we wandered down to Dixon Building to get a proper HK style breakfast (which I note is very hard to find in Brisbane).


It was actually quite challenging to find our way in, as it was too early in the morning for the other shops to be open. We walked around the circumference of the whole building to realise later that it had to be accessed via elevator during non regular hours.

According to other reviewers, Ching Yip has been long established in Sydney. From the rather retro look of it, I could definitely see that were the case.

As all Hong Kong Restaurants do, they had breakfast specials and afternoon tea specials.

Cutlery was provided soon after ordering.

I had the Soup Macaroni with Ham, and a Hong Kong style Milk Tea. Whilst the soup macaroni wasn't anything special, I still liked how homey it was, and reminded me strongly of Hong Kong. The pasta was pretty average, it was just the regular type you'd be able to get in supermarkets, the soup was light and tasty though. 
The milk tea was strong and bitter, like the ones you'd get in the streets of Hong Kong. It definitely did its job in waking me up.

My companion ordered the Soya Noodles and Congee set. We thought it might have been too much, but the portions that came out were quite small actually, but nevertheless it was tasty. The congee didnt have an ideal texture, but it was homey and comforting. We would have liked there to be a bit more toppings on the fried noodles though.
