A lovely night for a visit to Vivid Sydney 2010. The rain had stopped once we arrived at I'm Angus Steakhouse Darling Harbour for an early dinner (6.30pm) and we prayed that the weather will hold up all night for our exploration of Vivid Sydney.
JY5, my colleague and fellow foodie and photogapher, had kindly offered to organise this outing which started with dinner - Vivid - desserts and more Vivid for the 6 of us.
Garlic Bread w/ Parmesan Cheese ($4.50) - On a cold night, biting into one of this warm, cheesy garlic bread was heaven sent and a great start to the night.
I had ordered the Prime I'm Angus Sirloin 300g, 100 days grain fed, aged for 60 days from the Darling Downs Region, ($36.00) cooked medium rare w/chips and mushroom sauce (additional $5.50 for the sauce). The steak came with lightly fried kumara chips in place of the standard vegies or salad. The steak itself was tender and perfectly cooked.
H also had the Prime I'm Angus Sirloin 300g, 100 days grain fed, aged for 60 days from the Darling Downs Region, ($36.00) cooked medium rare w/ mash and pepper sauce ($5.50). The steak was perfectly cooked and the mash creamy and buttery.

H had ordered the Belgian Waffles w/ Guylian Chocolate Dip, served w/ Guylian Praline Ice Cream ($16.50) which was a huge disappointment. The waffles were too thin (ie. stingy on the batter) and dry.
I loved the Guylian Dark Chocolate Shake, chocolate ice cream w/ Guylian dark chocolate ($10.90). It had just the right amount of chocolate-y goodness without being too rich or too thin and came with an extra piece of chocolate too.
