Are you feeling a little peckish? Well, there’s no better place to be hungry than Sydney, even if you don’t have any plans. Don’t worry, there are always places that will welcome you with open arms and provide you with a unique atmosphere and finger-licking good menu. Check out some of our recommendations.
Hit the beach
If you want to have a two-in-one experience in Sydney, you can hit the beach and have a wonderful meal while you enjoy the ocean. Places like North Bondi Fish are located only a few steps from one of the world’s most recognizable beaches, the famous Bondi, so you can enjoy your food with a view. They hold various events from Valentine’s Day specials to lunch parties, but there’s one thing that’s unique for this place—their fish pies! Perfect for winter, these snapper, potato and leek pies will warm up your body and soul!
Grab a bite in Surry Hills
If you find yourself strolling through Surry Hills and feel like you could go for a bite, you’re at the right place! Spots like Bodega serve amazing tapas with an always interesting menu. The atmosphere is very informal and chill, so you’ll definitely feel like you’re at home enjoying some tasty bites with your buddies. If you’re up for a more serious meal, visit Bodega’s big brother Porteño and try the lamb (and pork, and beef, and cauliflower and Brussels sprouts).
Check out Chatswood
Have nothing planned for a lazy brunch in Sydney? Why not hit Chatswood and see what this business district has to offer. Don’t get fooled by all the skyscrapers and official-looking places, though. Chatswood is actually a perfect place to grab brunch with your friends or share some delicious yum cha. Pick a spot from a variety of excellent Chatswood restaurants and you won’t regret your decision. You’ll stumble across some of the most pleasant ambience and most delicious food. There’s no better way to spend a sunny day than drinking Chinese tea and sharing dim sum with your loved ones in a Zen, quiet and minimalist environment. This is a must-try Sydney adventure for when you’re in the mood for something relaxing and fulfilling.
Food and the City
Dining in Sydney downtown is not a hard thing to do, but if you’re looking for something relaxing and romantic that won’t completely drain your wallet, look for a spot like Felix. This bistro-style French restaurant serves honest, simple yet delicious food and their seafood bar is just magical! On the other hand, even if you’re not big on French food, you’ll stay for the wine. Their wine menu perfectly complements the food, so everyone will find something to keep them glued to this charming restaurant.
Enjoy the fire in the Rocks
If you just want something hearty and smoky, look no further than Pony in the Rocks. This place is one of the pioneers of wood fire grilling in Sydney, so you can expect a real treat. They offer a menu that showcases all the best sides of Australian produce combined with signature Argentinean type of grilling. The best thing about Pony? The fact that it’s so open! You can see everything that’s happening in the kitchen, have a chat with the staff and watch your food get slowly prepared just for you. It’s truly a wonderful experience being treated with so much love and respect.
