Sydney is the perfect place for two major foodies to explore. We spend a lot of our time enjoying new meals and visiting restaurants together and always manage to find the best spot. We usually brunch for most of the time, but also do dinners once in a while. Below are some of the restaurants that we dined at lately. Enjoy! x
⌱ SUSHIRITO + JUICERY ⌱
IN SPICE ALLEY.
Spice Alley 24 Kensington Street NSW 2008
Located in the Chippendale neighbourhood is Sushi Burrito also known as Sushiritos. The restaurant is located inside the foodcourt of Spice Alley and dishes are served in take-away boxes. It is the perfect treat for take-away. A very positive thing about the sushiritos are the fact that the restaurant focus more on keeping it healthy through adding vegetables instead of rice. In addition to the Tasmanian Sushirito, we also ordered a sashimi salad and crunchy maki rolls.
Perfect for brunch and a must-try!
Wulugul Walk, 33, Barangaroo Avenue, Barangaroo NSW 2000
UME Burger is a Japanese inspired concept with special-made burgers, Japanese sodas and an ice-cream machine. We came here during the busiest day of the week for lunch together with our Sydney sider, Michelle B. This place was so good! We have never consumed a burger that fast before. The Katsu burger is served with Japanese tartare sauce and the mince on both burgers have a really great texture. It was beyond delicious and melted in our mouths. The portion was just the perfect size! In addition to the burgers, we also ordered the Koji Fried Chicken. Hot Tip: If you order hot chips with umami salt, remember to order the housemade aioli as well. Another unique dish is the Renkon Chips; a lotus root chips that is served with a dust of seaweed powder. It taste as good as it looks!
The line was long, but efficient. Staff are busy, but attentive. The menu is small, but delicious. Crowded, but with good reason!

Where to even begin? By far, one of the best places for dinner. The venue plays awesome tunes, stunning asian interior and has great views overlooking spice alley. The Indochine cuisine has flavours from South East Asia and has a variety of dishes rich of flavour. The scallops with coconut salad is served as a delicious art piece whilst the pork belly wrapped in betel leaf makes us miss home. Mekong also served Vietnamese Ice Coffee! Our favourite dish is the Confit Duck Red Curry accompanied with a bowl of fried rice. I want to come back for my birthday, this place went way beyond our expectations. Exquisite!
IN SURRY HILLS.
3/490 Crown St, Surry Hills NSW 2010
Good tunes, lovely ambiance and delicate scenery explains Nour Sydney’s venue. Nour is a Lebanese restaurant with a variety of dishes. Some was not to our preference as we have different taste buds from Lebanese cuisine, but it was certainly a great experience. Try the amazing lamb shoulder and bomb alaska dessert. Staff were very friendly at all times and always just around the corner to have a chat with.
IN CIRCULAR QUAY.
The Gateway Plaza, Level 1, 1 Macquarie Place, Sydney NSW 2000
A newly opened venue in Circular Quay has its own champagne and oyster bar. We visited for dinner and was astonished by the Modern Japanese inspired interior. The oysters came in a fancy cocktail glass and the sushi platter presented on a concrete bowl. All sashimi was as fresh as it can be. Other memorable dishes are the Wagyu Tatami and Green Tea Tiramisu with Yuzu sorbet for desserts. Tokyo Laundry is a very suitable place to go with your girlfriends or arrange a corporate dinner. Our host had a solid knowledge about each and every dish on the menu. All round a lovely modern restaurant.
