It was a Thursday night and I had just been turned away from a place that I really, really, really wanted to go to so I settle for Una’s for dinner instead. I blame that on the 45 mins it took us to find parking in Darlinghurst (why I drove, I have no idea).

Una’s seemed to have a fair number of patrons (not packed) and I wanted some comfort food after being rejected from the last place so German seemed a decent choice.

Had my doubts when I saw the Maitre’D wearing lederhosen, as it made me think this was directed to a more touristy crowd.

Any time I out west, I always like to stop in to Auburn to grab an adana (skewered minced lamb) roll. Love the middle eastern foods in Auburn, the take aways in the city have got nothing on these places.

Now, I normally go to Sofra for my adana hit but decided to try a new place today. Unfortunately, as I had to get going, we had to be happy with takeaway instead.
