Let’s cut straight into it, cheese can do no wrong. Whether it’s silky, crumbly, creamy, salty, bitter or fruity (if you haven’t tried almond and apricot cream cheese what are you doing with your life?), there’s no denying cheese is downright delicious. And maybe slightly addictive (by maybe we mean definitely).
Major props to the Sydney eateries smothering our glorious city with serious cheese loving, we need more legends like you in the world. If you love the golden good stuff as much as we do, so much so that it’s practically oozing through your veins, this article is from us, to you.
We bring you the cheese trend of the year: the cheese raclette, and the best cheese menus to try it for yourself in Sydney right now!
Shout out to the crew at Loluk Bistro who now serve up the good stuff every Tuesday and Wednesday (that’s alongside a killer menu packed with a cheese soufflé and cheese platter so good you’ll happily call yourself an addict). Apart from the legit life-changing French fare, the aforementioned mid-week cheese raclette (in other words a raclette rave) is very much needed in your life, because bricks of cheese are never a bad idea.
