Bar/restaurant hybrids are becoming more common around town these days, and The Flynn is a prime example of this with half of the revamped space in the popular bar on Bligh Street acting as a dedicated restaurant, with moody lighting and cosy booths creating some atmosphere.

misschu Tuckshop, Manly

The misschu tuckshops have been popping up all over Sydney lately and now one has set up shop in Manly, conveniently at the junction between the Manly ferry wharf and the promenade leading to Manly beach. The design of the place follows the familiar elements of their tuckshops elsewhere in Sydney – plenty of repurposed furniture (think ironing board tables and milk crates with cushions), hanging lights with china bowl shades and blackboards everywhere with menu items scribbled on. Apart from those signature items, the essence of Manly is incorporated into the decor with the canvas and wooden beach chairs in the corner outside, which we make a beeline for and relax into as we wait for our order.

Madame Nhu at The Galeries, Town Hall

Food courts are usually not very inspiring places to have a meal, but some of the CBD food courts have been getting quite fancy lately. One of my favourites is the revamped The Galeries food hall in the basement of the shopping complex, just a short stroll from Town Hall station. The food hall exudes a modern vibe with bright colours and interestingly shaped decorations which make it feel much less like a dull conventional food court. The Galeries food hall also offers quite a few gourmet eating options like outlets of the ever popular Ichiban Boshi ramen and Chat Thai, which thankfully have much shorter lines than their restaurant counterparts.

Phamish Vietnamese Cafe, Darlinghurst

Hidden away just off the bustling Oxford Street of Darlinghurst lies a small courtyard surrounded by restaurants. It’s a nice quiet neighbourhood that is private enough to escape the city rush but close enough to return once you’ve had your food fix.
