Haven’t been over the bridge in a while? We’ve got 6 reasons why you should DEFINITLEY top up your e-tag and make the journey to North Sydney this weekend. Get ready for fine dining, cocktails in the sun, coffee and of course burgers.
Check out the harbour from O.T.B, and you never know, you might actually like it. We’ll catch you on the north side peeps, here are 6 North Sydney restaurants to try this weekend.
Mosman is upping its classy dining game this spring. Inside the newly renovated The Buena you’ll find a little piece of France in Bistro Moncur. The menu is French bistro inspired with pan fried barramundi fillet with mashed peas which is always a winner because mashed peas = yum. We also need to take a moment for the wine list. There is SO much great wine to choose from, with pretty much a vino to match every dish, so go for a long lunch or a long dinner (that’s a thing too right?) either way you’ll want to stay a while.
The Greens is the ultimate North Sydney venue. This neighborhood eatery has it all with a bar, café, garden and a bowling green. It embraces our favorite F words of food, fun, family and friends. Did we mention it has some of the best views of Sydney Harbour? The menu is jam packed with delicious eats including share plates, we loooove a good share plate in case you hadn’t noticed, especially when they have belly bacon on them. So enjoy a summery afternoon in Sydney at The Greens garden, sipping on a cocktail, gazing out at the Harbour. So picture perfect– literally.
These guys know coffee. Using seasonal single origin and espresso blends for both espresso and filter you know the trip to Hunters Hill is going to be worth it. Now that we’ve mentioned the coffee, let us tell you about the food. These guys have got it all, try the hippie lane rawnola if you’re feeling fresh or tuck into the dog’s board, with double-smoked ham, poached eggs and havati cheese. Do yourself and your pooch a favour —yep, they are welcome too— and check out Dachshund this weekend.
Five Points Burgers
Here at the Urban List we love a good burger. Five Points Burgers are the burger joint to visit on the North Shore with their fluffy buns, tender meats and saucy sauces. We suggest the Manhattan beef burger, complete with pickles and double cheese, it’s a no brainer really, plus the beer battered chips are an absolute must. Get your burger takeaway or eat inside and admire the modern industrial fit out. If you can squeeze in a little something extra (impressive) then the milkshakes are pretty damn delicious, we can’t go past the salted caramel, finished with their famous salted caramel sauce.
Searching for ramen heaven? Ryo’s Noodles in Crows Nest is just that. Authentic, hearty and won’t break the bank, it’s seriously what ramen lovers dream of at night. They’ve got everything from traditional dishes to ones that’ll surprise you. Ramen with miso bolognese sauce? Talk about a combo of Italian and Japanese deliciousness that needs to be in your belly stat. They’ve also got some great sides like gyoza and fried chicken. You’re on your way already, aren’t you?
This modern little Japanese establishment in Crows Nest is where you head for fresh home-style yakitori and Japanese cuisine in North Sydney. Perch on a stool at the bar or settle in to one of the long tables and prepare to feast. With a range of chicken, pork and vegetable yakitori these guys cater for everyone. They always have specials and their side dishes are ace. We sure haven’t seen burdok root chips and grilled rice balls on many menus around Sydney, and we guarantee you’ll love them as much as we do.
