Sydney Cheap Eats
I understand why Lucky Pickle is so popular. $10 for a sandwich is fairly reasonable in Surry Hills. It is tasty. The fact that is tucked away in some laneway makes it even more hipster and cool. It’s opened by Tio’s bartender Arash Katrak and Anna Berry. There is no reinvention of the sandwich. Just a whole lot of great combination that just works.
Now that I’ve moved to Sydney, I love Gumshara for two things – Ramen (light version with extra char siu) and Special Rice. It is on the menu board but kind of hidden away in the lower corner. What makes special rice special is not the toppings but the treasures hidden below the topping and rice.
We were out with a couple of friends the weekend before for a cafe hopping ride last Sunday. The first stop was The Shortlist in Chippendale. It was rather early on Sunday and a strong caffeine hit was very much welcomed. It was our first visit to The Shortlist and as we sipped our coffee, I could smell hangover food – bacon! I looked over the next table and the next and most punters ordered some sort of burger. It smell and looked delicious. Hence, our return the following week to get this place out properly.
