We Urbanspoon-ed a lot on our last two days in Gold Coast, and Black Coffee Lyrics was extremely highly rated and regarded amongst the Urbanspoon-ers. We arrived late, about 12pm expecting a breakfast menu but after some last-minute research we found out disappointingly that breakfast ended at 11am. Oh well, we’ll go for the tapas instead.
Pictured above is probably one of the best siew yokes I have ever tasted in my life. I can’t remember the last time something made such a huge impression on me. Granted, it was written on the menu as “pork belly” but as a Chinese, siew yoke is siew yoke in whatever form it comes in or whatever country you go to. A five hour slow cooked pork belly with house made kimchi, seared scallop, pear chutney and pear reduction. I still dream of this tiny little thing. We shared this miniscule tapas between the both of us because we were once again thinking too much into the exchange rate and decided to better save our stomachs for something else (for example Korean food which is highly recommended by everybody for some odd reason).
