Sydney Aroma Festival @ The Rocks 2011


It was that time of year again when the The Rocks at Circular Quay becomes filled with people who love coffee, chocolate, tea and spice for the Sydney Aroma Festival (generally held on the last Sunday of July). What a beautiful day it was, with the sun out to play and being surrounded by friends and of course FOOD!

Once arriving at The Rocks the first stop was to get some proper food into our system before devouring on the endless sweet tooth options. Where do you go for a good lunch? well there is no better spot then to go for a Turkish gozleme! After craving it for a few days after seeing the stand at the Sydney Winter Festival it was absolutely satisfying. There is nothing like sitting along the wharf, looking out onto the Sydney Harbour Bridge and eating some traditional Turkish food on a warm winters day. (always squeeze on the lemon, it just makes it that much better.
Turkish Gozleme - Beef, spinach and cheese $10

The rest of the day was just enjoying the lovely day out and trying all different foods from various stands. Trying all different chocolates and fudge become a bit overwhelming. There are so many options and different types. Its a shame I am not the biggest fan of fudge, but if i was I would have spent way to much money. Here is a look at the various food I had.

Mango and Passion fruit Pavlova $4.50

Cherry and Chocolate pavlova $4.50


Lush Berries $.350 each 

Blue Raspberry and watermelon snow ice $5.00

All the food we ate and tried was great. The pavlova wasn't to sweet or sour and the strawberries were some of the best I have ever tasted! The only disappointment was the churros. It tasted like pure oil and the dough seemed under cooked. I have yet to find a place where the churros are nice. Please, if you know a place let me know!
Good food, good times!
