Ho’s Dim Sim Kitchen Yum Cha
Honestly, you haven’t lived till you’ve sampled every delicious morsel from Ho’s, the kind of place you can stock up on YumCha for your dinner parties, or pig out at on Fried Pork Buns, Prawn and Chive Rolls, Sesame Toast and BBQ bun. It’s all soooo good! Ho-Dim-Sim-Kitchen
Free Eye Liner
Head for the Victorian Galeries off Pitt Street - buy two sets of lashes, and get one free eye-liner.
Women Who Drink With the Sharks
The Shark Bar should be the sleaziest joint in town but funnily enough it’s not. Located just down from the Galeries, opposite the World Tower on Pitt Street it boasts $3.00 drinks. It also used to offer a Bikini Lounge and a real shark who once lived on the premises. Happily the babes are nowhere to be seen these days and the shark has been set free. Even better the sofas are low, the armchairs are a godsend after a day spent storming the shops and the drink prices are a dream! Shark Bar Pitt St Better still, you can eat upstairs at Holy Basil with Laos bar snacks, soups and curries from $8.90.
