The Verdict

You’d be forgiven for missing this unassuming Redfern nook, but Bush isn’t a place you should skip.

If you’re a hardcore fan of no-frills dining, you need to lap up the outback and camping-inspired feeds happening here. The menu at Bush is short and sweet and is made up of hearty bites like Kangaroo curry pies and what could well be one of the best new cheeseburgers on the block (that can also be made vegan).

You’ll also find a smashable and nostalgic serving of potato salad, plus fairy bread and butter pudding for anyone with a sweet tooth and a fondness for ironic Aussie fare.

As for the fit-out, it’s all out low-key or nothing. That means sandstone on the exterior, wooden table tops sourced straight from the outback and a backyard dining area featuring rustic corrugated iron. You’re also encouraged to BYO paints and have a crack at some wall art out the back.
