Sydney’s Famous Dishes And Where to Find Them

  • Australian food is largely a combination of the world's best cuisines artistically reworked and presented with a great flair. Travel to Sydney and you’ll find the ultimate best of all culinary experiments that have ever been made. Here is a look-see into some of the renowned food destinations and best dishes you should try out while in Sydney.


    Places to visit


    Sydney Harbour is a major tourist destination in the city that has always retained its glory through time. This part of the city is also known for the number of multi-hatted restaurants and cruising restaurants that serve some of the best Australian dishes you will eat in Sydney. You can hop on board a Sydney Harbour lunch cruise for a lavish freshly prepared meal that consists of some famous Australian dishes. Get on board the most popular glass boat to indulge in an unlimited roving banquet freshly prepared by experienced chefs on board. This unique lunch cruise in Sydney also has a fully licensed bar on board that serves a selection of premium drinks and beverages. The menu served on board the cruise features a delectable range of dishes such as smoked salmon, prawns, grilled fish, beef stroganoff, seasonal salads and interesting dessert options. Head over to Surry Hills, an inner city suburb, where you can go on a food tour under the guidance of a professional chef. There are a number of waterfront restaurants on Sydney Harbour which are worth visiting too. Some of the dishes you should definitely try are Barramundi, Sydney rock oyster, Avocado on toast, Lamington cake, Australian Prawns, Pavlova and Barbeque snags. 


    Some famous dishes


    Barramundi is a popular Australian fish that is served in almost all the restaurants across the country. It is a freshwater species that is available both farmed and wild-caught. It is caught using gill nets from rivers, creeks, estuaries and coastal shallows. In Sydney, Barramundi is usually filleted, pan-roasted, or grilled to prepare a variety of dishes. 

    Another culinary jewel of Australia is the famous Sydney rock oyster, which has a deep and lasting sweetness that distinguishes it from other oyster varieties. Its flavours are most pronounced when eaten raw, roasted or shallow-fried in a light batter. The Sydney rock oysters also pair well with fine wine or bacon and Worcestershire sauce. The Australian Prawns is another prominent item on the Australian menu. The climate in Sydney brings a year-round bounty of seafood including King Prawns and Tiger Prawns. King Prawns have a sweet flavour and moist flesh that is perfect for a cocktail dish. Whereas Tiger prawns are a delicious variety with medium flavour. It is either used in soups or paired up with mayonnaise or aioli. If you’re a vegan, do try Sydney’s Avocado on toast where mashed avocado is combined with feta cheese and sprinkled with sesame seeds and a drizzle of olive oil. Try this dish for breakfast or as a snack for a low-fat substitute in your diet. Some of the other famous dishes in Sydney include Barbeque snag, which is probably a beach-day basic snack for Sydneysiders. A barbeque snag is a thick Australian sausage that has a mild flavour prepared with beef, pork, garlic and onions. 




    Sydneysiders love their desserts as much as they love their beaches. If you’re visiting Sydney, here’s a list of desserts you should try out. Pavlova, the ultimate Australian dessert, is a meringue-based dessert with fresh berry toppings. Vegemite is the next in line, a toast spread that has been internationally acclaimed since 1922. Do eat the famous Lamington cake which is also known as the “National Cake of Australia”. It is a sponge cake covered in chocolate and topped with desiccated coconut. Some of the other must-try desserts in Sydney are Anzac biscuits, Jaffles, Fairy Bread, Tim Tams and many more.  


    So there you have it! If you’re planning to visit Sydney, try some of these dishes or visit the places for an intriguing culinary experience.
