Remember when we found the gateway to Sydney’s foodie paradise? Well that foodie paradise has expanded and is making our tummies grumble even louder, if that’s even possible!

Part of an $80 million major redevelopment which is taking the Sydney CBD by storm, Gateway is the landmark dining precinct redevelopment your bellies have been waiting for.

Joining the likes of Neil Perry’s Burger Project, Gelato Messina and the 50-metre sushi train at Hero Sushi, are plenty of newbies set to make choosing much more difficult.  

Chat Thai are now dishing out their delicious pad Thai, fried chicken wings and coconut ice cream on the ever expanding level one dining floor, while Quay & Co have all your Greek cravings covered (not to mention winning coffee by Campos and #allofthewine).

If you’ve ever wanted to try some of the world’s best dumplings, now’s your chance thanks to Din Tai Fung swinging open their doors at Gateway over the next week. Made fresh in front of your eyes these tasty morsels of steamed pastry are the real deal. And if you’re in need of a coffee fix, Italian espresso bar, Workshop Espresso, have you covered (plus some tasty Brooklyn Boy Bagels to boot).

If food of the Indian persuasion is right up your alley you’ll want to head directly to Spiced by Bilu’s for their spicy street food. Find them in the bustling Cafe Court among all your other favourites.

A visit to Sydney’s CBD is no longer complete without stopping by this foodie mecca. So whether you’re in town checking out the latest exhibition at the MCA or on your way back from The Rocks market, be sure to swing past and fill up on the good stuff at Gateway, enjoy circo-style street entertainment by local crew Aerialise, or simply enjoy the recently refurbished outdoor oasis that is Jessie Street Gardens to soak up some sunshine. This new found paradise in Circular Quay has everything we’ve been waiting for.

Open from 10am to late every Saturday and Sunday (and with $2.50 all day ferry rides on Sundays to get you there) there’s never been a better time to cancel your weekend plans and head for the city streets.
