Being an Asian, having seen Asian Food in a Western County brings comfort to me, especially when the weather is cold. Walking pass the streets while on our way back to the hotel, we spotted a menu plastered on the wall outside Chonsiam.

The "Special" indicate on the menu was quite straight forward with reasonable pricing, thus we went into the eating place without too much thinking.

Interior was small with limited seats and narrow aisles. Being dressed extra in winter clothing, I had to be additional careful not to topple over other table's food while making my way in.

This is perhaps the cheapest food I ever had during my trip in Sydney. The special promotion of a bowl of Boat Noodle only cost me at $4 AUD. Although the portion may not be big, ingredients were ample with diced chicken, fish cakes, meatballs, vegetables as well as noodles in black herbal broth. Beating the cold & wet weather outside, I just wouldn't mind to have such down to earth meal. One pet peeve about the cheapest bowl of noodle I had was that I was quite thirsty after having this.

Finding food in Sydney isn't an issue just that perhaps the exchange rate is a killer during then and with a plate of fried rice from the streets shop at $11.90 AUD. In Chonsiam, the team was mainly Thais and with such, the authenticity of their dishes are more or less guaranteed. The plate of fried rice was simple, good enough to keep a stomach full on a cold day without going hungry.
