When you’re feeling a little daring and rebellious, new Sydney restaurant, Thievery in Glebe, is the place to be. Brought to you by the gang that created the Eat Art Truck and led in the kitchen by Julian Cincotta, Thievery offers exotic Middle Eastern food with a dangerous twist. No longer are you restricted to late-night kebabs! They offer street-food inspired dishes such as hummus with burnt butter and paprika, to roasted cauliflower fattoush and BBQ octopus with eggplant, cumin and black garlic. When your sweet tooth is calling out, Thievery also offers naughty desserts like the persimmon with smoked rice cream. Yes, rice cream!
If you’re looking to lose yourself for a few hours, the upstairs bar is the perfect hideout. With deconstructed broken walls and an exposed ceiling, you can delve into cocktail drinks inspired by the unique flavours of the Middle East.
Drinks highlighting flavours such as orange blossom, baklava, candied dates and spiced apricots along with an array of Middle Eastern beers will certainly satisfy your taste buds and warm you up from the inside out. In a place where rules are not welcome, and eating with your hands is definitely encouraged, Thievery is guaranteed to steal your heart and appetite.
