As Vivid Light Festival hit Sydney once more and brightened up our night skies, we thought what a better way to celebrate than with a Secret Foodies event. Darling Harbor was bursting with energy and excitement as people strolled the streets to see what they had in store for this years festival. Through the hustle [...]
On the weekend we wrapped up our 10 night series of Potluck Dinners and boy were we absolutely blown away by the quality (and quantity!) of food we tried. There were so many great dishes, we didn’t realise Sydney was hiding so many masterchefs out there!!
Secret Foodies even celebrated it’s 3rd birthday and what better [...]
Last Saturday Secret Foodies dined ‘New York, New York’ style at The Morrison Bar and Oyster Room. A stark contrast from the building’s previous venue, The Morrison delivered a wonderful night for all and was a fantastic event to kick off the new year for Secret Foodies. Special mentions must go to the succulent lamb shoulder and Sean [...]
Miga Restaurant opened last month at 1 Dixon St, Haymarket bringing a new style of Korean dining to Sydney. The street itself is lined with Asian restaurants and on this particular night a Hong Kong celebrity is signing autographs at the front of a neighboring restaurant. We have no idea who this guy is or [...]
If someone had invited me to attend a secret dinner on level 6 of the Westfield building in Sydney a year ago I would have politely declined. A bad food court, sloppy Big Macs, watered down coke and screaming children is no exaggeration of what was on offer. Fast-forward and scrap preconceived notions of shopping [...]
Some piggies go to market, some stay home. Some piggies have roast beef and some…well, they go to Chophouse and get eaten by hungry foodies! In it’s former life Chophouse played host to cinemagoers showcasing the latest black and white flicks. With the smell of popcorn well and truly gone the heritage rich building now [...]
Sometimes we get so caught up in our local bubble we forget to look beyond the boundaries of our zip code. Even Ms Darlinghurst gets a little too comfortable with her beloved 2010 and regularly on the hunt for the next underground restaurant to emerge. But every-now-and-then it’s worth exploring the more obvious destinations and [...]
Nestled in The Rocks amongst Sydney’s historic precinct you’ll find Appetito Pizza Pasta Bar. Built in the 1880’s this striking sandstone building was once a bank and so rather appropriate was the name of our latest Secret Foodies event, ‘The Italian Job’. Unfortunately I didn’t see anyone arrive in an old-school mini cooper and thankfully [...]
Small restaurants, tucked down little alleys and sneaky stairs that lead to a strange doors underground with cosy dining tables and mismatched furniture sounds very cool indeed. But sometimes Sydney tries to be too Melbourne- esque and we forget to flaunt our best assets. Arriving at Coast Restaurant on the waterside of Sussex St for [...]
Tres Parisian Chic in The Rocks!
Once occupied by convicts, rowdy sailors and Australia’s first settlers The Rocks is the historical heart of Sydney. Fast-forward two decades and it has been transformed into a style precinct. Who would have thought a one time shippingport would now host some of Sydney’s best restaurants? Amongst them is a [...]
