Must Eat Food in Sydney - Top Culinary Treat to Sample in Sydney

As one of the country's foodie hotspots, Sydney offers visitors a host of unique dishes and desserts. Here's a rundown of the city's most tantalizing culinary offerings.


Strawberry Watermelon Cake

While it may appear to be an odd combination, this delicious cake is a favourite among those who frequent Blackstar Pastry in Sydney. The sponge-like cake with crusty portions is not only a local crowd-pleaser but also the perfect pick-me-up for those in search of a decadent but light snack or tea time treat.


Fish and Chips

A trip to the Sydney Fish Market is all one requires comprehending the abundance of seafood varieties and seafood themed restaurants occupying the city. The Deep Seafood Cafe, Fisherman's Wharf and Oyster Bar are among the best places to dig into the best fish and chips Sydney has to offer but countless other eateries around the city have their own version of this tried and true favourite prepared with locally sourced seafood items. While a plate of fish and chips in the city may set you back more than what one would normally pay for the simplistic meal, the cost is well worth it.


Beef and Beetroot Burger

The popularity of hamburgers may be unsurpassed when it comes to the world's most sought after burger varieties but Sydney's own Beef and Beetroot Burger is the one to beat for those who are looking for a wholesome meal in the city. Sliced beetroot is infused into the burger's kernel alongside Australian beef patties to create this signature dish which exemplifies culinary ingenuity.


Green Chicken Curry Pie

Those in search of Sydney's most beloved pastry item might be surprised to find that the city's green chicken curry pie is the undisputed market leader where speciality pastries are concerned. The combination of a traditional pastry pie along with the spicy, aromatic and textured filling of an Asian green curry dish is what sets this pie apart from other meat pies in the city. A chicken breast is first cubed without the skin and seasoned with coconut milk, green curry powder and lemon juice. The strong flavour of the Thai style chicken compliments the delicate flavour of the pastry to create a memorable culinary experience.



While the dispute over whether New Zealand or Australia can be credited as the creator of this globally renowned dessert still simmers, Sydney remains one of the best destinations to sample this classic Aussie dessert. Adored by fruit lovers and those with a sweet tooth alike, the crispy exterior of the white-hued dessert is perfectly balanced with a filling of stewed and sweetened fruits to create a mouth-watering dish that's served in nearly every bakery and coffee house in Sydney. Although a Pavlova is described as a "cake," flour plays no part of this egg-heavy dish that is typically served with a scoop of ice cream.


Seafood Pizza

Travellers based at PARKROYAL Darling Harbour or any other seaside hotels in Sydney should not miss the chance to dig into a slice of seafood pizza. The pizza topping is what makes Sydney's seafood pizzas the hero dish of any menu as the collection of fresh seafood, grilled to perfection alongside tomatoes and chilli makes the dish simply irresistible.
