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.

Pizza Autentico, Surry Hills

It’s pretty busy for a Saturday night but we’re seated promptly with stunning views overlooking QVB and the bustling George Street.

Fuku Restaurant, World Square

Fuku is a modern Japanese restaurant situated on the upper restaurant level of World Square, right opposite Din Tai Fung. We’re visiting on a Friday night and Din Tai Fung has the usual longest lines; Fuku is moderately busy but we’re not stuck out waiting in the cold thankfully, so it’s a great option if the Din Tai Fung wait gets your stomach growling. The menu has a nice variety of Japanese classics which have been re-done with contemporary cooking techniques and flavours and there’s also a large menu of Japanese sake and wines, although tonight we just opt for food.
