Hipster’s Foodie Guide to Sydney

5 choice places which make Sydney one of favourite foodie cities

Hipsters, millennials, the Y generation – you can call them what you want but you have to admit one thing – they do have a great taste in food. Always in a search for new tastes and original recipes, hipster-worthy food isn’t only pretty-looking and suitable for Instagram posts; it will also do good to your palate and leave you wondering if that’s what perfection tastes like.

Sydney, on the other hand, is one of the greatest city to visit these days and it has great food as well, so that’s why we bring you an ultimate hipster’s foodie guide through Sydney.

Although Ze Pickle is primarily a burger and craft beer oriented place, you can still find delicious vegetarian and vegan options on their menu, not to mention gluten and dairy-free meals. That means that this fantastic restaurant literally has something for every taste, especially for those who believe that burgers and beer are a match made in heaven. If the craft beer isn’t really your thing, there’s an extensive list of cocktails and wine you can order while trying some of their crazy-named burgers is a must. What about Pablo Esco Burger with ground beef, cheese, guacamole, queso, smoked jalapenos – a sublimation of Mexican food in one burger? It’s a must-have!

If you’re looking for a truly Australian experience, this contemporary restaurant located in Barangaroo Avenue is the best place to be. It’s based on the idea of celebrating the Australia’s four elements – earth, ocean, land, and air – and the whole menu is designed to show local produce and cuisine while the crockery you will be eating from is also locally produced. Besides, it’s a late night dessert bar, so trying out their 3, 5, or 7-course tasting, which includes stuff like pistachio, miso, and smoked vanilla, is obligatory.

SoCal, Neutral Bay

Inspired by their California surf trip, Hamish Watts and Ben Carroll decided to open a bar with the traditional ambiance of the Golden State, accompanied by the matching food and drinks. As for the food, beautiful SoCal Neutral Bay offers various BBQ meals as well as seafood, the best of Mexican cuisine and pairing it with some of the best southern Californian wines. A special thumbs-up goes to their in-house smoked cocktails – from Old Fashioned with cherry smoke to Fairbanks with hickory smoke. So trendy, yet delicious!

For those of you who love reading and drinking during the day, Hemingway’s bar is a perfect place, right across the road from Manly Beach. Hipsters who visited the place swear on bacon and egg roll while Hemingway’s offer many other breakfast options, perfect for curing hangovers. The best thing about it is that it seems undiscovered by the tourists yet so it’s mostly locals that eat and drink here meaning that Hemingway’s is the place to be if you want to blend in. The best thing off the vegetarian menu is the kale and quinoa salad which you can get for less than $20, so why not give it a shot?

Bread & Circus, Erskineville

Being a chic industrial-style eatery, Bread & Circus is one of those places that really have it all – vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free options, and it’s pet-friendly as well. Their menu is changing daily but there’s one thing that is constant – all of their food is organic. You can order things like biodynamic bread and eggs, flourless pancakes, and homemade almond butter so it’s clear that Bread & Circus is a perfect option for those who like eating healthy, no matter where they go. A special recommendation goes to Breakfast with Gwyneth – sautéed with quinoa, kale and mixed greens. Yummy!

One thing is for sure – you won’t stay hungry if you come to Sydney! Having something for everyone, Sydney is one of those cities you leave with a promise to come back. Well, some of these restaurants sure can be a reason to go back, so why not check them all out?
