Gourmet Traveller (Australia) - - Sydney Review -


Where some apart­ment de­vel­op­ments come out swing­ing with fancy restau­rants in their ground-floor ten­an­cies, Steam Mill Lane, which is on the piece of land link­ing Chi­na­town, Dar­ling Har­bour and Ul­timo, is all about the snacks. Now that all its venues have fi­nally opened, the clear wins for lo­cals are prov­ing to be the cof­fee at a smart new branch of Edi­tion, the gy­ros from Gyradiko and, above all, the bril­liance of the bánh mì at Mar­rickville Pork Roll (above), which some lo­cal wags have taken to stuff­ing with hot chicken from the neigh­bour­ing Belles out­let. Steam Mill Lane, Syd­ney


In­tra lends weight to not one but two key the­o­ries in Aus­tralian café life in 2018. One: that Can­berra is, on a per capita ba­sis, the best place to drink cof­fee in Aus­tralia, and two, that Ja­pan now ex­erts a de­tectable in­flu­ence on Aus­tralian break­fast menus. In the case of the for­mer you’ll find ex­pertly made Kyo cof­fee in beau­ti­ful lo­cal ce­ram­ics, while the lat­ter can be seen in the pres­ence of miso soup with the sour­dough and yuzu on the avo toast. 30/12 Provan St, Camp­bell, ACT


Syd­ney’s ra­men scene has a sig­nif­i­cant new player in the form of RaRa. A crisp build ren­dered in con­crete and ac­cented with ply­wood and neon is the back­drop for care­fully crafted Hakata-style thin noo­dles, tonkotsu broth, and ex­cep­tional chashu pork grilled to or­der over coals. Oh, and there’s a wor­thy ve­gan op­tion to boot. 66b Re­gent St, Red­fern
