My absolute favourite Sydney restaurants. You’re always guaranteed a good meal and price to match.
Tamagawa’s (Balgowlah) My favourite Japanese restaurant in all of Sydney by far. My favourites include their curry udon & agedashi tofu.
Menya Mappen (Sydney or Bondi Junction). Ridiculously cheap udon as well as a fried-things bar (tempura & fried chicken and more!) plus matcha slushies. Pretty darned incredible and a great pocket saver.
Green Gourmet (Newtown) My favourite vegan chain that serves great vegetarian Chinese cuisine. Coeliacs beware however – they do not go easy on the gluten.
Silva’s (Petersham) Amazing fries and Portuguese chicken!
Chinese Noodle Bar (Epping). This helped me fall in love with Northern Chinese cuisine and I’m often here every two or so weeks. Absolutely adore the tomato and egg noodles. Only $10 but the best comfort food, especially on a rainy day.
Ginger & Shallots (Eastwood). Open until the late evening, this restaurant stole my heart with its family deals! For two you get 2 x meat dishes, 1 x veg dish, soup, rice and tea for under $35 altogether. Cannot beat that value.
Sushi Hotaru (Sydney). Located in the Galeries, this is my favourite place for a sushi fix. Complete with iPads to order side dishes and cute booths or a seat at the revolving sushi line, this place has something for everyone.
Can’t wait for round 2…
Had the opportunity to dine at these fine establishments but am dying to return!
Tetsuya’s (Sydney) Need I say more??
Kable’s (Four Seasons, Circular Quay) Had dinner here for my 21st birthday and never forgot the meal – so good!
Out of Africa (Manly) Their lamb sosaties specialty is not to be missed.
The Devonshire (Surry Hills) Delicious three course friday lunches for $35 – who could say no to a deal like that?
Ichiban Boshi (Sydney) Ramen lovers can’t miss this one.
Seven Lanterns Teppanyaki (Sylvania) Absolutely stunning Korean food – some of the best sushi, chicken teriyaki and beef rib I’ve ever had!
Erciyes (Surry Hills)
