Arras

Calling all sweet tooth’s! Enjoy an incredible meal at Arras but make sure to save room for the famed Petit Fours… All heads will swivel when a giant pink persplex slab makes its way from the kitchen to your table where you can then select as much (or as little) as your stomach can handle. From coconut ice to honeycomb, salted caramels and peanut brittle, there’s something for everyone and will guarantee smiles on the whole table.

The Dip

The Dip is located inside the Good God Small Club, make your way down the stairs and past the Flintstones-like booths and place your order at the bar for all your dude food needs. The Pulled Pork Nachos, Big Windy Hotdog and the Hot Wings are faves of the mostly hipster crowd.

Emperor's Garden

Had a pretty epic night and not feeling the best in the morning? Yum cha fixes all! Emperor’s Garden has the best egg tarts with flaky buttery crusts and smooth eggy custard innards. The polo buns are equally addictive, bite into the sweet crust and past the pillowy soft bun to reach the golden custard centre.

Sydney Fish Market

What’s a trip to Sydney without visiting the Sydney Fish Markets in Pyrmont? Gaze at the mountains of fresh fish piled high and then pick and choose what you want and have it cooked any way you like- battered, grilled or maybe even sashimi style.

Flour and Stone

Arrive early at Flour and Stone and be rewarded with the famed Pannacotta lamington. Don’t even try to resist ordering something from the pastry counter. The Jam Donuts are a winner as is the Lemon Drizzle Cake and definitely take home a Lamb & Rosemary Pie or two.

Fuku

For ridiculous delicious Japanese, try Fuku in the World Square Shopping Centre. The Seafood Hotpot is jam packed full of seafood or try the Smoked Miso Cod but maybe order 2 lots as it is too delicious to share!

Gumshara

With winter soon arriving, a bowl of Garlic Tonkotsu Ramen from Gumshara will warm your soul. Rich, thick soup and fatty slices of melt in the mouth pork will make you instant converts.

Opening Hours: 10am to 10pm

Mamak

The ever-present line at Mamak may test your patience but when you’ve made it into the Promised Land you definitely have to order the hand-made Roti. Plate after plate of piping hot Roti with curry come flying out of the kitchen and are devoured in record time. For dessert try the Roti Tissue, a cone of paper thin Roti dusted with sugar and when given the option of ice cream ask for condensed milk instead!

Narune

Last but not least, the best Fried Chicken in Sydney can be found at Naruone). Crispy, crunchy batter encase tender chicken or try the finger licking sweet and spicy chicken which is sure to kick all other fried chicken to the ground.
