Awesome afternoon at Opera Bar

On the heels of an incredible Bday dinner, M & and I planned to spend the arvo at The Morrison for happy hour wine and oysters.  Being from the east coast of Canada, we both have a weakness for bivalves…We had already purchased our tix to Les Miserables, and were looking for a way to pass the time in advance of the film.  We caught a bus up to Circular Quay with the intention of meandering down to The Morrison.   However, when M suggested that we spend some leisurely time on the waterfront – and have a drink at Opera Bar, I was all too happy to oblige!  I  ended up that we quit trying to “rush a good thing”, and so The Morrison was forgotten, and we quickly ordered another tasty bevy and snacks at Opera Bar.

Our drinks were further enhanced by a plate of Yam crisps and prawn popcorn. 

The Yam crisps were OK.  Certainly not life-changing.  They provided a good bit of crunch to go along with our wines, but they were pretty greasy.  I wouldn’t likely order them again.

The prawn popcorn, on the other hand, were delicious – I’m hungry just thinking about them now.   The plum, juicy prawns were coated in a light, crispy batter and served with a luscious, mayo-based spicy jalapeno dipping sauce.  YUM.

Opera Bar, I’ve determined,  is one of those spots that cater to both tourists and locals alike; tourists because it’s the Sydney opera-based bar, but locals, because it’s simply a damn-good spot to spend a sunny wknd afternoon.
