:p I regret most of the content/jokes here. 40% of which are cringe-worthy. This is not a blog that I'd want my nephews/nieces ...or anyone to read, actually. but it's still up here because of sentimental reasons. The blog took a lot of time to build & I just don't have the heart to delete it. If you do find the jokes funny - I'm happy to know that they're entertaining. Otherwise, here's a more "proper" one http://coffee-choc.blogspot.com ...prob not as funny, mainly about chocolates and coffee and food & music

World's best SEAFOOD @ Balkan Restaurant, Sydney

The Original Balkan Restaurant grill in Darlinghurst was established in 1964 and has been praised for over 45 years for its great atmosphere, excellent European style dishes and large servings.

Seafood platter

Famous for its authentic European style food which is prepared right at the window on the street-front grills, allowing everyone to have a look at chefs preparing ones favourite dishes.

Some of the special dishes that have come to hold the pride of place as the specialties of this restaurant are spicy sausages, pork on skewers, poached Tasmanian mussels, and whole Barramundi.
