What’s the best thing about a brand new month in Sydney? Well friends that would hands down be all the new spots to check out with your crew (obvs). But we get it; all that culinary choice can get a tad overwhelming, which is where we come in.
With the plethora of options coming to Sydney each month we rounded up our 7 favourites of the moment so you can take care of the more important things, like food comas.
Can Cava Pintxos & Wine Bar
Bondi now lays claim to Sydney’s first pintxos and wine bar, which between us, are two of our absolute favourite things. In case you’re yet to discover the beauty that is pintxos, think tapas style mini bites, including everything from goats cheese croquettes and tuna tartare to pork belly and chorizo. Because they’re so mini, you can get one (or five) of everything on the menu #win. They also have an extensive wine list and beer on tap, if that’s more your flavour.
Andy Bowdy, the dessert master, finally has a place to call his own. Setting up shop in Enmore to the delight of hungry bellies everywhere, this is where you go to have your cake, eat it, and take it home. What’s even better is that in addition to all-day brunch (the best kind), you can also work your way through bloody marys, super shakes and sandwiches, and never leave.
Sydney now lays claim to a Beyoncé and Jay Z themed bar—yes, you should be excited. Complete with murals and fried chicken, you’re in for a seriously good time. Their cocktails include classics like the crooked Hillary and Obama out, as well as Bey’s hot sauce (we love it already) and Kanye BBQ corncob.
We can’t remember the last time we got excited about Irish eats. Introducing Redfern’s 34bia, plating up Irish food without the stodge. You’ll want to order everything (with no judgement from us) from the moment you walk in. We’ll just say that it isn’t an Irish meal without a side of mash and some twice-cooked chips, don’t let us down now.
Head to Saltie for the three Bs—burgers, brews, and bowls. The coffee, by Gabriel Coffee, is top notch, and their burgers, well there is a reason they’re all over your Instafeed. But we also need to take a minute for their crushed avo on sourdough. Finished with tahini crema, sesame, and a wedge of lemon, it’s big enough to share, but also delicious enough to keep it all to yourself.
Chicago deep-dish pizza. Enough said? Sydney fiiiiiiinally lays claim to the good stuff and your belly, your crew, and your stretchy pants are in for a workout. Located on Stanley Street, this new kid on the pizza block has everything—pasta, arancini balls, cannoli and oh yeah, delicious deep dish pizza. It wouldn’t be Chicago style without a cheeky nod to The Godfather so be sure to check out their cigar deck and Rat Pack meets swing themed downstairs bar.
We love putting our dollars towards a good cause, and the Song Kitchen does just that. 100% of profits go directly to the YWCA NSW programs, supporting woman and children escaping domestic violence. The chef behind this social justice mission is Charlotte Gonzales, who has worked at the likes of Felix and Fred’s; if that doesn’t fill you with confidence, we don’t know what will. Hot tip: buttermilk pancake.
