Y2K Bug

For those who have lived and witnessed the ‘post-apocalyptic- technological’ Y2K bug of the new millennium, this post may not be what you are looking forward to read about. It’s more of the “bug”, which Y2K Supercafe has given us, when we had our first cold snack with them. However, the “bug” we are raving about, is neither an infection nor  a little critter they have served us, but more of a desire to come back for more.

As the sweltering summer heat starts, we have discovered a not so typical restaurant in the Asian food capital of Sydney, the Chinatown. Lurking near obvious Chinese and other Asian restaurants in the fabled Chinatown is Y2K Supercafe. It’s small, yes…But it serves one of the best refreshing delights especially on this scorching heat that Sydney (and the whole of Australia) is experiencing, and will be experiencing in the next two weeks or so. That makes it big…really big…for a ‘cooling’ appetite!

Berry Parfait

We have tried a few of their range of heat-busting and refreshing frozen desserts when we visited the place. A berry parfait…a banana split…a small bowl of chili fish balls…and two thirst-quenching drinks!

The berry parfait was a delight to look up to, with two chocolate sticks peppered with crunchy Maltesers on its sides. Its appearance is as delightful as its taste!

And so is the banana split…appealing to the eyes, but more pleasing to the gustatory senses. Our palates craving the three scoops of colourful and frozen delights in the center of the halve banana, in every spoonful we ate.

Breaking the sugary taste of our frozen delights were the fish balls, savored with spicy and garlicky sauce. Each ball, soft in the inside, is cooked just right making it spongy, and tasteful as its sauce.

There cold drinks – a lemon flavored black tea, and a libra (a coconut and strawberry concoction) – were both invigorating after a day over the smoldering and sweaty Sydney heat.

Our food trip to Y2K Supercafe is one experience we would love to do once again, especially that it’s not expensive as others. There price is very much affordable. Good food and great price makes it more a Y2K bug!

Y2K Supercafe is located at 43 Dixon Street, Haymarket, Sydney.

  1. I often visit this too for original milk tea with tapioca and curry fish balls. They’re really good.

  4. Thanks for letting me camp out in your blog for a little while today. I had a great time and tried to leave my campsite as good as when I arrived. I’ll be back in a couple of weeks!
