The Wagamama at Circular Quay has vacated its premises and in its place is a new branch of the Japanese chain called Yayoi which serves up “teishoku” meals a.k.a. meal sets. The menu is quite extensive and the photos make everything look pretty appealing.
Tapa Vino is a hidden gem in Bulletin Place at Circular Quay – as its name suggests, it is a thriving tapas restaurant with an impressive array of sherry to boot.
It’s been packed every time we’ve been in and it’s best to book in advance to avoid disappointment. Our booking secured us a lovely table on the upper level, which isn’t as bustling as the walk-in bar area downstairs, but is perfect for a group of friends to enjoy a great meal.
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.
