Food heaven is found on food at five, Westfield Sydney. Malaysian 'street food' shines bistro style at Sassy's Red, from the same people that bring you Chinta Ria, Mood for Love.
A busy place, and that is a good sign.
Best tip: come with a friend, and that way, as each of you order your meal at the counter, the other one can mind your table. There is limited seating, and it is great to be part of the stunningly simple decor, as opposed to hanging out in the food court space scattered.
Fast, attentive service, although I would have liked my Ella noodles with pork ($12) to arrive a little quicker, yet the quality and temperature made the wait worth it, and then some.
The laksa style dish one of my friends ordered
For the life of me, I cannot remember what my friend ordered, yet the laksa style dish also looked divine. Comfort food in wet weather, and even in the summer periods.
A little leaven of love indeed
With the Ella noodles, you won't feel bloated or overly full. Loved the bok choy pieces...the only qualm is there could have been more. A top notch stir fry dish. Perhaps more meat and vegetables, and a lot less noodle, and the Sassy's experience would have been totally stunning. Ever so popular, and should you decide to experience, and then return after that experience; you'd need to try something different. Change is as good as a holiday, and it most certainly is right here.
