Rabbit Hole Bar and Dining, Sydney

Rabbit Hole Bar and Dining is a hidden underground bar/restaurant near the Martin Place area. Situated in the space previously occupied by Bar Europa, they’ve been open for about a year and a half now and have already made a name for themselves serving up tasty meals (check out their wagyu beef burger!) and drinks. I’ve been a couple of times before but this time we’re trying out a pilot of their ‘Cocktail Concepts & Culinary Craze’ – a monthly event that will showcase unique cooking techniques and molecular mixology.

Press Food and Wine, Adelaide

On our last night in our recent trip to Adelaide, we thought we’d visit one of the finer restaurants in town and were recommended Press Food and Wine. As we walked there, the surrounding area of the CBD was highly reminiscent of Melbourne – many alleyways with artwork on the walls with hidden bars and trendy looking restaurants, except with less crowds and lines. Nevertheless, on a Wednesday night Press Food and Wine’s upstairs dining room was fully booked, but thankfully they leave the ground floor for walk-ins.

Devon Cafe, Surry Hills

Devon Cafe only opened last year but they’re already a huge hit, constantly drawing in long lines during peak weekend lunch times. I’ve been there twice already for lunch and the food is pretty good, but they’ve since realised they can capitalise on their popularity and have expanded into dinner (Thurs-Sat only). The dinner menu has a nice selection of snacks, smaller and larger plates incorporating the Modern Asian flavours they’re known for.

Kepos Street Kitchen, Redfern

Tucked away at the back end of Redfern and just one block away from Danks Street lies Kepos Street Kitchen, a small but super busy restaurant open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We rock up hoping for a Sunday lunch at 1pm but there’s a massive queue and we’re not seated until 2pm – crazy!

Bacar Restaurant at The Pullman, Sydney Olympic Park

When I think ‘Sydney Olympic Park’, I think concerts and special events, a large swimming pool and a small business park. Amongst all this are some hotels and little did I know that inside the Pullman Hotel would be a restaurant serving up 5-star quality food.

Headed up by Chef Gary Howieson, Bacar Restaurant presents a seasonal fine dining menu which is mainly Modern Australian with some Asian influences and experimental flavours. On top of this, each dish is presented immaculately like a piece of artwork and looks almost too good to eat (emphasis on ‘almost’). Today we’re dining from the lunch menu which is a shortened version of the dinner menu. It’s not particularly busy on this Saturday lunch session but on nights of concerts and sporting events, they tend to book out so it’s best to plan ahead.
