A few of my favourite things…

And speaking of cholesterol, moving on from my previous blog post…

The Unique Patisserie

This unprepossessing Katoomba café-restaurant-cake-shop offers not only wedding cakes, Aussie cakes, hot pies, deserts and fish and chips, but top Penang cuisine. Proprietor, chef and mother Hiang Hwa Yong (Wei Wei) sculpts incredible carrot birds and rice rabbits to adorn your meal.

Walk in and settle into a booth and let the music take you back in time – the soundtrack when we were there cruised through schmultzy ‘Spanish Harlam’, Matt Monroe, and ‘you’re just too good to be true’. As well as cuisine from Penang you can enjoy the old favourites, done to perfection – Sweet and Sour Chicken, for instance. The Aussie cakes are more perfect than perfect. There’s nothing like a lamington or a custard tart, to bring back memories.
