Missed out on a European Summer vacay this July? Don't worry, we've got just what you need, right here in Sydney! From new Greek street dining in Drummoyne, right through to globally sourced new and antique furniture in Waverley, Sydney is spicing things up with an explosion of cultural offerings. Here's a list of what's new if you're on the look out for things to do in Sydney this month!
Papparich | Broadway
If you have been too lazy to cross the bridge to Chatswood for some great Malaysian food (we understand) then you're in luck... The hugely successful Malaysian PappaRich Group has just opened the doors to its latest PappaRich outlet, and we couldn't be happier! Boasting an extensive menu of high-quality traditional and creative Malay dishes that are great for sharing, married with 60 different beverage options, it is no surprise the queue can be spotted halfway down Broadway. Enjoy watching the Roti Canai being made fresh, and don't go passed the 'Ice Blended Bandung', made from soymilk mixed with rose syrup.
Mordeo Bistro & Bar | CBD
Just popped up in Sydney's vibrant CBD, Mordeo Bistro & Bar offers a southern European eclectic flare to its rich and hearty menu items, exquisite wine list, and homemade range of artisan beers. The menu created by executive chef, Nicholas Aspros and head chef, Marc Gehret, provides customers with refined appetizers, attractive share plates, and robust mains, complete with finger-licking desserts such as Dulce de leche churros and Greek doughnuts. The bustling bistro and bar offers an entertaining, vivacious, and unique dining experience with live music and energetic wait staff, providing exceptional food at extraordinary value.
Zeus Street Greek | Drummoyne
If you didn't manage to book your Greek Islands getaway this July and are looking for things to do in Sydney, you can still enjoy all the olive-oil-soaked and barbecued culinary goodness this culture has to offer, just without the hefty flight costs! Zeus Street Greek has been serving a variety of mouth-watering souvla and street-eats to a full house since the doors opened a few weeks ago. There is no better time than when it's cold outside to fill your belly with a slow-cooked lamb and smoked eggplant souvla that would please the Grecian god himself, followed by a warm fig jam and cinnamon rice pudding.
Barista Haus | Rockdale
Calling all coffee and cronut enthusiasts, we've found your latest watering hole! This new hidden Rockdale treasure is soon to be a favourite among locals and commuters. Café manager and head barista, Jess Reynolds, is serious about bringing quality coffee to Sydney's Southern region and the staff here know exactly what you need to start the morning right. Offering rich and full-bodied coffee from Melbourne's Sensory Lab roast, freshly baked, melt-in your mouth cronuts, and a variety of cakes and sandwiches, don't miss Barista Haus next time you're in the area.
Dear September | Waverley
Still looking for things to do in Sydney? Keen for some culture? How about a little of something from everywhere? From Provincial French cookbooks and handcrafted Moroccans Poufs, to Mexican throws made from natural hand-processed wool, Dear September has all your decorating (and gifting) needs covered. This store hosts an eclectic but carefully selected range of unique, artisan, and traditional pieces from around the world. Dabble in a shopping experience that will whisk you away... and then have you returning home with treasures from exotic locales, that won't break the bank!
