Brown Sugar Bondi
With menus tailored for a hearty breakfast or a casual dinner, you’re bound to partake in a brilliant dining experience at Brown Sugar Bondi. It’s only a short walk away from the water, and the cosy atmosphere will only enhance the meal.
A Sydneysider staple, Hurricane’s Grill has restaurants in both Circular Quay and Darling Harbour, known for their signature steak and ribs. If you’re new to Sydney, Hurricane is a key location in fully experiencing the city.
Icebergs Dining Room & Bar
If you’re looking for a place closer to Sydney’s most iconic beach, Icebergs has you covered, with tables in the dining room overlooking the water-view. Their Italian inspired menu can be enjoyed both inside and outside.
Mappen Noodle Restaurant/Oiden Rice Bowl Bar
My go-to place for Japanese food in Sydney is a combination between Mappen Noodle Bar and Oiden Rice Bowl, which share a wall in SkyView Shopping Plaza on George Street. Mappen offers what is renowned as the best ramen in the city, while Oiden’s menu contains a range of donburi, both at a good price.
A local hidden gem of Darlinghurst, Robatayaki Toro hosts a variety of Japanese cuisine which can be enjoyed by the accompaniment of old black and white movies. One of the primary highlights of this location is the beverage menu, containing a great choice of sake and alcoholic drinks.
Located by the water of Sydney Harbour, the dining experience at Searock Grill is enhanced by the views of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House – but you might have to scare off the seagulls with some ‘seagull spray’. Their menu contains a variety of seafood dishes along with some of the best steak in the city; the mushroom sauce is Vendra certified (and she doesn’t even like mushrooms).
There’s always a line for the Emperor’s cream Puffs in Chinatown, and there’s good reason for it. At thirty cents a piece, the custard filled pastries are bought fresh off the hot plate; no matter how long you blow on one, it’s probably still too hot for you to eat. Yet, you enjoy it anyways. They’re amazing. Try them.
