The old Rozelle Tramsheds are undergoing a huge makeover as we speak and I think you’ll all be pretty chuffed with the result since it is tipped to become Sydney’s coolest new food destination. Set to open late August, there will be a good mixture of cafes and restaurants, street food and sustainable fresh food providores.
The newest additions to the line up at the heritage-listed building are Southern-inspired diner Belle’s Hot Chicken, boutique coffee crafters, Garçon and Egyptian fusion eatery, Bekya.
Belle’s will be bringing their signature menu to their second Sydney location, so you can start getting excited about all of the wings, tenders and drumsticks that you’ll be devouring from next month. We’re probably most excited about the chicken and waffles combo that is, frankly, not done enough in our opinions. Also worth a mention is their wine list, which takes the au naturale route and will go perfectly with any dish (because it’s wine, and we love wine).
Bekya is taking the street food approach as well, so you should absolutely take their traditional Egyptian breakfast and home made flat breads for a spin. Then afterwards, while you’re sniffing out your second or third coffee of the morning (no judgment), you’ll come across Garçon who will be roasting beans from The Little Marionette onsite so you can sip your coffee while you bask in the heavenly aroma of roasting coffee beans.
A bonus (and an equally worthy mention) is Flour Water Eggs, by Eugenio Maiale of A Tavola who has confirmed that Tramsheds will house his latest venture. His goal is to bring the art of pasta making to the Inner West and provide an experience dedicated to the craft of preparing, presenting, innovating and learning about hand made pasta.
Already confirmed to open in Tramsheds are, bar and paddock to plate butchery, Butcher & The Farmer, sustainable seafood restaurant, Fish & Co, tapas restaurant, Bodega 1904 and needs-no-introduction-gelato-kings, Gelato Messina. We can’t wait.
