Dine like a local: Sydney's top eats
From restaurants tucked inside grand heritage-listed buildings to modern fusion cuisines; Sydney’s abundance of eateries is second to none. However, if you’re short on time on a weekender, or it’s Friday night and you’re wanting to drop your cooking plans for some cheap eats, sometimes the fun can be taken away with too many good options.
That’s why we’re dishing the dirt on the best places to eat in Sydney - like a true local. We’re talking Mexcian fiestas and modest New-Orleans-inspired bars to the most authentic Asian street food. We’ve got all bases covered.
