I am no food blogger but I didn’t get this fat sitting around eating salad.

I have lived in Sydney for over 12 years now (with a little tree change in the middle) and this is the greatest eating city in the world. Melbourne can suck my shashlik.

Read on to reach Sydney food nirvana for under $20:

  1. A pannacotta lamington from Flour and Stone, Woolloomoolloo. Custardy, cakey goodness.
  2. Handmade Szechuan noodles with pork mince and cucumber from Chinese Noodle House, Haymarket. The worst décor in the land with some of the best food.
  3. Steamed pumpkin dumplings from Seabay, Sydney. Fluoro lighting and a 10 minute wait for a table.
  4. A Punjabi thali from Jaipur Maharaja Sweets, Sydney. Also has a great Indian sweets counter for all your gulab jamun needs.
  5. A double scoop at Gelato Messina, Darlinghurst, Surry Hills or Pyrmont (The Star). The funnest desert in the galaxy.
  6. Yum cha at Marigold, Haymarket. Hangover cure number one.
  7. The crumbed chicken and dumpling soup from Din Fai Tung, Pyrmont (The Star). Hangover cure number two.
  8. The pad kra pow from Spice I Am, Surry Hills. So hot it will blow your flaps/nuts off.
  9. A lamb or veggie sausage roll and a whisky and apple juice at The Wild Rover, Surry Hills. Crystal glasses and cute bartenders.
  10. Pho from PHD, Marrickville. The greatest soup known to man.

  1. I’d put the vegetarian degustation at Oscillate Wildly right up there as one of the best meals in Sydney. Also Russo and Russo does good things with vegetables.
