For all those souls longingly desperate for some deep-fried goodness, we bring you Sydney's best American-style diners.
Miss Peaches Soul Food Kitchen | Newtown
This gumbo-loving soul food kitchen guarantees a hearty feed, with delicacies such as fried chicken, spice coated shrimp, and pulled pork sliders. If you're feeling like something a little more substantial, opt for the Okra Jambalaya or the Blackened Fish—it's sure to curb your Southern cravings.
The Soda Factory | Surry Hills
When a bar serves up $1 gourmet hot dogs every Tuesday night you know you've hit the jackpot! But the trademark hot dog isn't the only American item on the menu—try the chilli cheese fries, Bucket O'Fried Chicken, or if you're really feeling patriotic go for the chicken waffles with maple syrup. Authentic American diner style.
Hartsyard | Newtown
Renowned chef Gregory Llewellyn has opened 14 restaurants along America's East Coast, so you know his American-themed Newtown establishment has got to be good! The menu is designed to be shared with highlights including: crispy pigtails with buttermilk dressing; pulled pork with maple bacon, yoghurt and apple; and smoked beef brisket with BBQ pit beans, onion rings and pickles.
Hinky Dinks | Darlinghurst
This small, retro-themed bar takes its cocktails pretty seriously, with creations such as popcorn infused tequila and bourbon milk sundaes. To keep your hunger at bay, there are burgers, tacos and an assortment of sides, including jalapeño croquettes and beer-battered onion rings.
Mary's | Newtown
Serving up the mother of all burgers (a mouthwatering patty dripping with cheese, nestled between heavenly soft buns) Mary's is a must on your American hit list. If you're up for a challenge, go for the Larry—two deep-fried whole birds to feed five mouths. There's a vast array of bottled craft beers and a blackboard full of wine specials to wash it down.
The Eathouse Diner | Redfern
Rounding off our list of Sydney's best American-style diners is none other than Redfern institution, The Eathouse Diner. The menu will tantalise your taste buds with specialties including Southern-style fried spatchcock with chipotle mayo, and Jamaican braised beef cheeks with beans'n'rice. End the night with an old-fashioned banana split.
