The old Rozelle Tramsheds have been transformed into an epic one-stop shop of all things edible. With an array of cafes, restaurants, bars and street food vendors to satisfy your belly. Making a decision about where to eat can be hard, and let’s be real— your food choice has the potential to make (or break) a relationship, especially when you’re #hangry.
So to rescue you from the hanger gamers (see what we did there?), we’ve handpicked six places for you to hit up at The Tramsheds this weekend.
Butcher And The Farmer
Butcher and the Farmer is up there when it comes to Sydney’s ultimate farm to table dining destination. Their ethos is all about simple, honest and delicious food (sound like our kind of place). Their selection of prime cuts is pretty damn extensive, and each comes with a generous side of delicious smoked vegetables to match. If you’re choosey when it comes to your meat (and you should be), then you’re in luck. These guys will tell you the breed, where the animal was raised AND what it was fed. It doesn’t get fresher than that.
Garcon has two specialties, and they happen to be two of our favourite things: coffee and wine. Yes, it’s totally a lifestyle. Garcon is a coffee-centric espresso and wine bar located in the Tramsheds redevelopment. Pop in for brunch— we’re going for the brunch bao and a Garcon cold dip— or if you’re more of a night owl, then head there for a cheese board and espresso martini. They have three to choose from and because we can’t decide between them all, we recommend grabbing your crew and heading on down.
Flour Eggs Water
Even when we’re trying to cut back on carbs (and failing miserably) we’ll ALWAYS make an exception for A Tavola’s new baby. Flour, Eggs, Water is bringing us one of life’s simplest (and most satisfying) pleasures— fresh pasta on the daily. You can watch as the pasta is created right in front of your eyes and then transported straight to your belly. We know; we’re drooling too. There is seriously nothing better than fresh handmade pasta. Don’t believe us? Try it for yourself this weekend..
Belle's Hot Chicken
Chicken has taken flight in Sydney this year (see what we did there) and to continue this trend Belle’s Hot Chicken have not only set up shop in Barangaroo they’ve also made a nest at the Rozelle Tramsheds. Queuing isn’t really our thing, but when you get to sip on a glass of all natural wine and listen to hip hop beats on vinyl while you wait, it doesn’t seem so bad. You should definitely head to Belle’s for lunch, because that’s when the chicken and waffles come out and in our humble, fried chicken loving opinions, it’s one of the tastiest and most underrated dishes of all time. Too much? Just try it.
There’s no shortage of beer, whisky, cocktails and yakitori at Tokyo Bird. It’s the Japanese small bar that’s perfect for an after work drink, group dinner or first date. As a huge bonus, it’s got a pretty great vibe so there won’t be any awkward moments if you do head here for that first date. The food menu is designed to share and the drinks menu is epic, with an entire section dedicated to Japanese whisky so you know you’re in for a treat.
Here at the Urban List we looooove tapas for obvious reasons. Those reasons being that we hate food envy and love trying a little bit of every single dish on the menu. Bodega’s Latin inspired menu has kicked it up a notch with dishes such as pork and cuttlefish meatballs, corned beef and kimchi hot cross buns (we’re not kidding) for starters. If the weather is turning it on, then we suggest that you take it outside and opt for their picnic basket menu. It’s packed with their best dishes, and you can choose your fave wine from the wine store to go along with your takeaway feast.
Still hangry? Do the festive season right, and check out where to eat on Christmas Day in Sydney.
