Braised Pork Belly Bento ("Like Grandma used to make!" said the boyfriend) and Fried Chicken Fillet Bento (it looked dry but the moist tenderness within surprised me) at the new-ish Oden House in Chinatown. A tiny hole-in-the-wall eatery that serves Taiwanese "small eats" quick and cheap. Their menu is not as extensive as the other one that we go to but I think it makes sense, for all eating places of this size, to zero in on just a few things and make them good. We're waiting for the temperature in Sydney to drop so we can go try their steamboat/hotpot-style meal. Slurpy-wurp!
Oh, and see that brown hard-boiled egg? It's an add-on. Oden's Special Boiled Egg which has been braised in a five-spiced soy. One of my favourite ways to eat an egg!
605-609 George Street (but the entrance is along Goulburn Street)
