National Weed Day is upon us (aka 420 day), so it’s no surprise we’ve started thinking about all the greasy, saucy, crispy and deep-fried snacks we’ll be shoveling down our throats (regardless of whether we have the munchies or not).
Here are the top five spots you should roll up to if you’re planning on celebrating 420 Day.
Opening in Newtown last month, D’Munchies has affectionately been called the “stoner café” full of “stoner food” (which makes it perfect for “stoner day”, right?) The menu is full of bats*** crazy combinations such as pretzel ice-cream, salt and vinegar sandwiches and deep-fried ravioli nachos to satisfy all those late-night cravings.
Not only does Butter have fried chicken, fancy champagne and kick-ass kicks, they’ve also created a Belgian waffle sandwich deluxe for 420 day (which officially makes it our new fave). In amongst the waffly goodness, there’s a maple mayo, laces, peanut butter soft-serve, choc chip and rainbow sprinkle filling, courtesy of Head Chef Julian Cincotta. With food this good, you’ll be begging for the munchies.
This hotspot on Oxford Street always manages to have a queue of VERY hungry customers (but it’s so worth the wait). When your stomach starts to roar on 420 Day, devour the Crackles Classic—crispy-skinned slow roast five-spiced pork belly (with a side of chilli cheese fries #nomnomnom).
Good Times Artisan Ice Cream
Everything’s better with bacon, amirite? Lucky for us, the ice-cream gods have looked down upon us with Good Times Artisan Ice Cream launching their brand-spanking new menu this week (just in time for those ice-cream sambo thoughts). If you’ve got a sweet tooth, get ready to demolish the Boppity Boo—ricotta cheesecake ice-cream, marsala caramel sauce, chocolate shavings and mini cannoli.
Two slabs of house-made lasagna, crumbed and fried and made into a bun, stacked with a wagyu patty, gooey mozzarella and special Italian sauce? Yep Sydney’s first (and only) lasagna burger smashes those bleary-eyed feels.
