I didn't recall surf 'n' turf until I looked closely, but I see there's scallop and foie.

Thanks.  :D  I'm not sure when/if I will be going back.  Nice town, Sydney.  The flights were pretty damn rough, though.

You went via the west coast, I presume?  On my route back last time, I stayed over a night or two in LA.  Broke it up nicely.

Yep, a connection via LA. Stopping for a couple days would be a good idea.
