Bar Topa

Gourmet Traveller (Australia) - - Quick Meals - 4 Pal­ings La, Syd­ney (02) 9114 7368, merivale.com

This bolt­hole on Pal­ings Lane is in­spired by the tapas bars of Spain. Oil paint­ings crowd the walls, legs of jamón hang proudly above the bar, and whipped salt-cod dip, Gil­das and sar­dines are plated up with noth­ing more than a point and a por fa­vor. Mar­ti­nis and Ne­gro­nis are served as half-pours

(for $8) and there’s San­gria on tap and Basque wine to ac­com­pany the likes of bo­ti­farra a la plan­cha.

What to or­der: The half-Mar­ti­nis are hard to beat, but grab one of the ex­cel­lent steak sand­wiches on a bun be­fore they beat you.
