10 BLIGH ST, SYDNEY; 8078 1888 SPICETEMPLE.COM.AU
Spice Temple is Neil Perry’s dark, sultry and seductive play on the fragrant, spicy and textural food of China’s Sichuan, Yunnan, Hunan, Jiangxi and Guangxi regions. But in true Perry style it’s a lighter, more considered interpretation.The service is spot on and the wine list huge. Begin with a cocktail at the bar, then move into the darkest dining room in Sydney to embrace the ride.
