Have you got a serious case of the nibbles? Look no further than a charcuterie board for an assortment of delicious cured meats, olives and cheeses. We’ve munched our way through our fair share of charcuteries from some of Sydney’s best restaurants and bars (yeah, yeah, it’s a tough life), to find the best of the best—just for you!
Just remember one thing, sharing is caring (and wayyy more delicious). And hey, we won’t judge if you if you also share a bottle of wine too – it’s more fun that way!
The Stinking Bishops

Alma Bar & Kitchen
Darlinghurst’s Alma Bar & Kitchen certainly knows how to put together a great charcuterie board. Think chorizo, prosciutto, salami, homemade marinated veggies, brie and goats chèvre with mountains of crusty bread for a board you certainly will remember. Share with a group of like-minded friends for a deliciously good time. Best paired with a bottle of wine and a long-overdue catch up.
The Local Bar
The Local Bar’s range of share plates is definitely something to boast about, with four takes on charcuterie boards for your choosing.

Take your pick, it’s hard to go wrong here.
