Sassy's Red, Westfield Sydney

Exhilarating. Now that is one way to describe a lunchbreak right?
When your venue of choice is the food court at Westfield Sydney it surely is an exhilarating experience. One would think that all the hoopla would have died down but day in and day out that level 5 food court is bustling and hustling away. Its a one stop food wonderland, what ever your craving or your state.
Amongst the Burgers, The Sushi, The Snags and even the Spit Roast above - Sassy's Red has been holding its own among CBD dwellers, fixing everyone with their delectable Malaysian offerings. Located in a back corner of the food court the vibrant red walls, neon signage and almost kitschy asian decoration is quite eye catching. Sassy's space is a treasure trove in itself with the walls lined with colourful bottles of sauces. It is a break from the standard marble and leather set combination within the food court.
Oh look, a door in the ceiling. Standard. Which is why Sassy's is such a quirky lunchtime escape on its own. Owner Simon Goh's (Of Chinta Ria fame) elegant but fun touches are all around.
My go to dish at Sassy's is Donny's Chicken Rice. Donny's identity is somewhat of a mystery but this chicken rice of his is a gift to the masses. Nothing quite comforting like a serve of this and lucky for us Sassy's dont skimp on portions. The fragrant ginger rice is generously topped with pieces of juicy chicken with a crisp skin and the ginger throughout the dish cures every lunchtime ailment.
Feel free to put this theory to the test but Donny's Chicken Rice is a far better and more comforting hangover cure than a a burger..and you Empty Fridgers know how I love me those burgers!
My mom, Mrs Fridgemagnet is quite the Malaysian Food fiend and uses catching up with yours truly as an excuse to enjoy a big bowl of Sassy's Beef Rendang. Despite being preoccupied with my chicken rice I manage to steal a bit of roti and dunk it into the thick sauce.
Unlike Mamak, there aren't any windows where you can really spy on the roti making extravaganza despite a semi open kitchen. Fanfare or not the roti is served warm with fluffy corners. The centre bits, not so much but I wouldn't say it was unpleasant. Save it for wiping your bowl clean of the rendang sauce. The rendang itself wasn't overly spicy and very bearable for a chilli wuss like me.
Don't think that since Simon Goh's other restaurant Chinta Ria.. Mood For Love has opened up in Level 6 Sassy's is left to play second fiddle to food court commoners. It still is a big contender in the exhilarating lunchtime decision making routine evident in the lunchtime lines of people clutching their Sassy's buzzer eagerly waiting for their fix. Yours truly continuing to be one of them.
