I love my city, and I love the food scene we have here. I think it’s underrated and one of the best in the world for variety and authenticity. So here are 8 things you must eat (in my humble opinion) in Sydney. 

1. Sydney Fish Market

Sydney Fish Market is renowned for its selection of fresh seafood, sourced from local waters and around the world. The market operates daily, providing customers with access to a vast array of premium quality seafood.

Sydney rock oysters are one of the most popular items at the Sydney Fish Market. They are a smaller variety of oysters with a distinct creamy texture and a briny, salty flavor. They are typically served fresh and raw, and are often accompanied by a wedge of lemon or a mignonette sauce.
Market also offers a variety of sushi and sashimi plates. Both the sushi and sashimi plates are excellent options for those looking to enjoy the fresh seafood at the Sydney Fish Market.

2. Coffee at Single O

Coffee at Single O in Sydney is known for their high-quality coffee beans sourced directly from farmers around the world. They’ve been open for 20 years, sice 2003 and they’re still serving a strong crowd weekday and weekend. I love their soy cap here.

3. Ginger Brûlée Tart at Bourke

Bourke Street Bakery is a renowned artisanal bakery that was established in Surry Hills, Sydney in 2004 by two passionate bakers, and I’ve featured Bourke Bakery multiple times in my videos. 
They have since expanded their operations to several locations throughout Sydney and have become a household name for delicious baked goods. One of my favourites is their ginger brulee tart – smooth and creamy ginger custard that is perfectly balanced with the caramelized sugar top.

4. Normandy Burger at Hubert

Hubert is my favourite French restaurant in the city for it’s delicious food and casual vibes. Hubert’s menu features classic French dishes like escargot, steak frites, and bouillabaisse, along with an impressive selection of wines and cocktails.
But we’re here for their happy hour bargains like the duck parfait and their delicious normandy burger. It looks like plain old Jane, but there’s something about it that’s SO good.

5. Laksa at Ho Jiak

Ho Jiak is a popular Malaysian restaurant in Sydney that is well-known for its delicious Laksa. Their signature dish is the Nyonya Laksa, which is a rich and aromatic coconut curry soup filled with thick rice noodles, tender chicken or prawns, tofu puffs, and bean sprouts.
And if anyone knows me, they know I love laksa. There’s many spots I go to, but Ho Jiak has a great variety of Malaysian dishes which makes this place a go-to for a great dining experience.

6. Gelato at Messina

Gelato Messina is a popular gelato shop in Sydney known for its flavors and, there’s a lot of them! I’m always tempted to get a scoop everytime I’m in darling square. 
Gelato Messina is a must-visit for any gelato lover.

7. Steak at Woolloomooloo

Kingsleys Woolloomooloo is a steakhouse and seafood restaurant located in the trendy Sydney suburb of Woolloomooloo. They’re known for their high quality cuts of meat and delicious steaks cooked on a charcoal grill, but also the steakhouse has a great view looking out on the water. I got the Black Angus Sirloin 300g steak which was delicious.

8. Australian Comfort Food

Harry’s Cafe De Wheels is an iconic Australian comfort food icon that originated in Sydney in 1945. Their signature dish is the Tiger Pie, which features a delicious combination of chunky lean beef pie and creamy mashed potato topped with mushy peas and rich gravy. I absolutely love it and I almost always bring my friends and family from overseas to try it.
