6 eateries, 3 days—that’s 2 per day. Easy done. With so many groovy cafes popping up left, right, east, and west it’s hard to decide where to go. We understand that overwhelming feeling so we’ve given you our tips for 6 Sydney restaurants and cafes to try this long weekend.
If you’re cruising around Annandale this weekend make a visit to Cornersmith your priority. This family run business is boasting success with 2 cafes, a cooking school, it’s own cookbook and the famous Picklery, yum. Focusing on ethical food production, their menu is seasonal and always features locally sourced produce from small-scale growers and makers.
Belles Hot Chicken
Belles Hot Chicken is brining you the ultimate finger licking goodness. No excuse needed to indulge in a scrumptious meal at Belles. You and your belly will feel right at home in this groovy fit-out. If you’re brave enough to try the Really F**kin Hot wings you can wash them down with one of the craft beers on offer. We are pretty keen to get our hands on Belles famous chicken sandwich, with a side of fries of course.
Four In Hand
Inside the beautiful old corner building lies this elegant gastropub in Paddington. Four in Hand boasts a unique dining experience created by Guillaume Brahimi. With sophisticated dishes and inspired cocktails it’s a hard encounter to forget. The Hemingway Daiquiri is at the top of our list. Do yourself a favour and head on down this weekend and Four In Hand may well become your local.
The Soda Factory Long Weekend
Spring Break brought to you by The Soda Factory. This long weekend head to Surry Hills in your best spring attire, we’re thinking some sort of Hawaiian theme, and prepare yourself to let your hair down and get wet n’ wild. The party kicks off at 6pm with $5 drinks for the first hour. Resident DJ’s will be spinning 80’s and 90’s tunes till the wee hours of the morning.
Bouche On Bridge
These guys are revolutionising fine dining. No need for a special occasion just pop in over the long weekend where you will enjoy a fine dining food experience with a more relaxed vibe. The menu has been created to showcase local produce and has an extensive wine and cocktail list. There is something for everyone. We think a good place to begin is with half a dozen blood orange and wakame oysters.
Juicy meat, saucy sauces and plenty of cheese, get the ultimate burger experience at Royal Stacks. Burger joints these days are all about the creativity and with its attention-seeking menu, The King burger for instance is stuffed with mac-and-cheese croquettes, Royal Stacks really is unique. Go on, you know you’ve always wanted to try a burger with homemade truffle mayo, we know we have.
