A few years ago when Boodle Feast posts exploded on Instagram, I felt I was left out, none of the Sydney Filipino restaurants that I know offered this type of dining.

It’s almost the beginning of summer and for most of us that means getting outside and enjoying the longer and warmer days. Everything blooms this time of the year and for food aficionados like me, I’m totally out of my hibernation, it’s time to go out and discover new venues and seasonal offerings that will whet my appetite around Sydney.
Sandwiched between the iconic Luna Park and the Harbour Bridge, Ripples Milsons Point offers excellent views of Sydney’s landmarks and breathtaking water views of the harbour. Dining here isn’t just about eating, it’s also a feast for the eyes. I’ve visited this restaurant twice in the last two months celebrating a lunch time birthday party, it seems a popular choice amongst my circle of friends. During both occasions, the restaurant was covered with clear vinyl plastic panels, a protection from those wintery cold winds. It’ll be nice to go back this summer when there’s no covering for an uninterrupted view of the harbour and beyond.
Whether you’re up for an excellent beer, delicious food offerings or both in a relaxed setting, All Hands Brewing House (A.H.B.H.) located at the old King St Brewhouse – 22 The Promenade on King Street Wharf. It really is the destination to head to for some of the best crafted beer and food in town.
When choosing to dine at Rockpool Bar & Grill, you can expect great food, impeccable service and an upscale dining experience. It is one of Sydney’s top restaurants nestled along Hunter St. in Sydney’s CBD.
If you are looking for a new cocktail bar to try, look no further than Sugar Ray’s Bar in Surry Hills located on the corner of Bourke St and Cleveland St. It’s a new player on the bar scene offering well concocted cocktails, wine, craft beer, fox sports and delectable American food bar menu.
It’s the middle of winter in Sydney and if you’re looking for a lovely meal to nourish the soul in a warm, inviting and cosy ambience, Bistro Mekong in Castlecrag is the place for you. Their inspired menu by countries along the mighty Mekong River – Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam offers flavoursome and bold dishes that will warm you up from cold winter nights.
The newly re-vamped Quadrangle Shopping Village in Castlecrag is set to become one of lower North Shore’s hottest foodie destinations with all the exciting developments taking place. Two of Kensington Street much loved restaurants have already opened their doors. Bistro Mekong the sister restaurant of Mekong and Holy Duck are now in full swing serving their specialised menu that is sure to please one and all.
There are millions of Filipinos who’ve made their homes outside the Philippines. They get homesick and often crave for Filipino cooking, or just miss conversing in their native language.
Located in the sophisticated Meriton Dining Precinct, Parramatta’s latest dining destination, The Meat & Wine Co brings a modern steakhouse to the area.
