Six iconic Sydney foods and where to try them
Fresh, local seafood is one of the defining pleasures of Australian dining. With its big open windows overlooking the beach, North Bondi Fish is an exceptional spot to try some local specialities just a few steps from the sand. There’s small plates like soft-shell crab sliders, grilled Tasmanian scallops, rock oysters and whiting tacos, as well as beer-battered flathead and chips, and whole baby hiramasa kingfish. For a unique Aussie flavour try the XO Moreton Bay bug, served with zucchini, garlic chive noodles, bacon dashi and shiso. Bugs are curious creatures, a bit like small lobsters with a shovel shape and a sweet, rich flavour.
