Last year, Cafe Opera at the InterContinental Hotel introduced their “A Taste Of…” food series – a degustation showcasing and supporting local produce. After a successful last year, three more series have been introduced this year including:
- A Taste of The Dairy – April 1st – 30th
- A Taste of Head to Tail – May 19th – June 14th
- A Taste of Foraged Feasting – July 14th – August 11th
The summer sun, an Aussie barbeque and grand views of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Opera House – there really is no other venue like Opera Bar! This month, they’ve transformed their outer seating into “Sydney’s Backyard” – think picnic dining tables, Hills Hoists (complete with laundry strung up), native plants and of course a barbeque serving up Aussie favourites. It’s family friendly with a kids area (Twister and giant Connect Four), live entertainment and even a lemonade and slushie stand. This fun set up is only going to be around until the end of January so it’s best to check it out soon.
Is it a bird? Or a plane? No, it’s Superman…or one of his many superhero friends riding a Vespa and holding a sandwich! The Sandwich Hero is one of the most interesting food services to shake up Sydney, offering sandwich deliveries from superheroes to the many CBD offices throughout Sydney.

One of the newest pop-ups to hit Sydney feature the trendy ‘bao’ – warm, fluffy buns which house both savoury and sweet fillings. This collaboration is founded by fellow food blogger Theresa (aka. The Gook) and Vella Nero, a coffee specialist cafe which is also housing the pop-ups.
We are huge fans of the food trucks that are doing the rounds through the CBD serving up gourmet “fast food” from different cuisines. One of the newer additions to the food truck club is The Nighthawk Diner, dishing up American style dishes like Philly Cheesesteak Sub sandwiches, Smoked Salmon and Cream Cheese bagels and huge milkshakes! All the action at Nighthawk happens inside a shiny silver trailer, which is going to be parked at World Square until October 13 from 11am-10pm everyday, in the breezy outdoor area of World Square (in front of Cue and the staircase to Din Tai Fung).
