Yum cha at the Sydney Fish Markets

Fisherman's Wharf Seafood Restaurant is at the end of the Fish Markets arcade and up the stairs.
We went for lunch one Tuesday. I was transfixed by the prawns in the tank. The way they scoot along the floor without moving, like running on a treadmill. Like layers of leaves rustling on a windy street. The yum cha was great too, especially my favourite one, the fried oval-shaped rice dumplings with BBQ pork inside. There were some fantastic prawn and vegetable steamed ones and the good old silken tofu in cold coconut soup. Then I found the crab tanks. And the lobster tanks. Who needs a lava lamp or a meditation tape when you can watch seafood?
