Two weekends ago, we had a weekend getaway to Sydney. It has been a while since our last visit and we intentionally planned a trip which coincided with Chinese New Year. Sydney Chinatown is the place to be if you wish to experience the vibrance and festivity of Chinese New Year which includes the lion dance, firecrackers, parades and night markets. We went to Malay Village on 1 Dixon Street (cnr Goulburn Street) Sydney Chinatown for a Malaysian feast. This may not your typical food to celebrate Chinese New Year but I really missed Malaysian street food. We went for their teh tarik (“pulled milk tea”), roti canai and Hokkien mee. Dishes which reminded me of home and more.
