You might not be throwing a couple of shrimp on the barbie, but you’ll definitely taste some Sydney’s favorite dishes. Seafood is a must, whether you enjoy salty, crispy fish and chips, tuck into a selection of super-fresh sashimi, or indulge in local Balmain bugs (a species of lobster native to Australia). You’ll follow your host into a small deli filled with artisanal producers to sample – and stock up on – tapenades, bread, oils, and scrumptious relishes, and visit a wine distributor or a tiny heritage bar to taste some of the finest blended wines and craft beers. And if you’re keen to try Sydney’s take on international dishes? Thai or Indian tasting plates are always a good idea before strolling down the harbor, Jaffa gelato in hand.
