Sydney is a foodie haven. From a delicious smashed avocado breakfast, to a Thai lunch and Korean supper, there is something for everyone of varying tastes and budgets.
Time Out has listed its top 50 Sydney restaurants here, but if you want a quick guide to the best brunch, pizzas, cocktails and gourmet dining read on.
A good brunch with excellent coffee is not hard to find in Sydney. Think poached eggs, sourdough and a bit of rocket on the side and you won’t be disappointed. If you like the idea of some baked ricotta and Baba ganoush thrown in you may have found your food nirvana. Check out legendary chef, Bill Granger who has his own restaurant Bill’s at Bondi. The full Aussie breakfast includes scrambled eggs, cumin roast tomatoes, miso mushrooms and pork, chili and fennel sausage.
If you’re lucky enough to hit Sydney at the height of summer (and even if you’re not) the best place to get a good view, and a good meal is on the waterfront. Freshly cooked fish and chips at The Avalon on The Beach – The Kiosk and direct access to Avalon Beach is certainly a good way to spend a couple of hours, after an obligatory surfing lesson or attempt to cruise the waves. Pizza is always a great way to stave off any hunger pangs before dinner and Pizzaperta based in Pyrmont offers great tasting Italian street food and al fresco dining. Think authentic pizzas with a twist. The Waterfront Cafe at Church Point offers seafood to die for with buckets of prawns, oysters and calamari dominating the menu. The cocktail menu offering Mojitos, Bellinis and Martinis doesn’t look too shabby either.
A truly unique way to spend the day exploring Sydney’s greatest foodie destinations is an all-inclusive Taste of the Opera House tour, which takes place throughout 2017. You’ll get masterclasses in sushi and cocktail making, as well as a specially prepared lunch from Portside Sydney’s ‘hatted’ head chef Lauren Murdoch. A great one-off experience.
Unable to last between lunch and dinner, then you’ll be pleased to know that there are a variety of high tea options. A number of the luxury hotels including The Langham Sydney, The Westin Sydney and Park Hyatt offer a varying array of delicious cakes and finger sandwiches. For a more low key, but no less delicious, alternative The Gunners Barracks Tea Room offers spectacular views, peach flavoured white tea, samosas and creamy mango pudding.
Dining out in Sydney offers everything from Cantonese delights at Mr Wong’s , Middle Eastern food such as halloumi, egg plant and warm hummus at Kepos & Co and roast barramundi, ricotta ravioli and fennel salami at low-key Italian joint Sagra. Thai and Chinese restaurants feature heavily too but Time Out voted French influenced Hubert, the best of the Sydney bunch. Eating takes place in a number of different areas. So you can have a Normandy burger at the bar or share a chicken or a Riverine rib-eye in the main restaurant. All offer an excellent culinary experience.
