Sydney Day 4 – 6th Dec

Today we were heading off to Parramatta side of the town, had promised Neha to take her to a chaat restaurant for fav Pani Puri.

No driving, we were to use the Sydney Train system – our car has not moved out of the car park since we arrived!. Another perk of Sydney sunday travels, the sunday funday ticket provides unlimited travel on Ferry, Train, Bus & light rail for only $2.50!

First stop, QVB again, back to the Tea House for awesome brunch.

Then a stroll onto George st to the World Square area, here Nita spent lots of times during our 2007 visit.

Spotted the Three Monkeys Pub, was fun explaining to kids what each of the monkey was doing.

Walk back to Town Hall for train ride to Parramatta.

 

Kids were surprised with the double decker trains, Brisbane only has the single level ones and are much smaller, trains here were much bigger.

Arrived into Parramatta around 40 minutes later. Another surprise for kids, the station is connected to the shopping centre, we did not have to set foot on the outside streets. Things are well integrated in Sydney.

First impressions of the place, the mall looked very run-down and old.

We roamed a bit, Neha did some Uni Qlo shopping, then it was back in the train heading to Harris Park for Indian Chaat.
The recommended place was ChaatKazz, place seemed busy. Ordered the chaats – was looking forward to some authentic veg food. Food service was very quick, however the taste was not up to what we expected. We have had better in our US trip @ Viks Chaat. The only highlight was Pooja’s dish, the paratha and paneer tikha masala- that was very nice.

By 6pm we were back at the Train station awaiting train back Central.

At Central, time to switch to Light rail for ride back to the Star.

Finished the night with some yummy Messina gelato at the star.
