What you'll do

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.

Where you’ll go

Decades of immigration and multiculturalism has formed a food culture that has something for everyone. Whatever cuisine you fancy – Indian, Turkish, Mexican, Thai, Chinese – you’ll easily find it here, and while fusion food is predictably huge, there’s no shortage of fresh local fare. In the city’s trendy inner west suburbs of Newtown and Enmore, you’ll taste the best of Sydney’s homegrown and international cuisine as you move between tiny delicatessens, hip cafes and cozy wine bars. Just one mile west, the 150-year-old Paddy’s Markets are open for business and serving the freshest seafood and snacks. And when you want something totally Aussie? Maybe you can hunt down the ever-popular Chips on a Stick food truck.
