Fusion / Eclectic | Balmain, Inner West

The food is excellent and it is a good idea with a group to share plates. The size is good for up to four people for each plate and you get to sample a lot of different items. The dessert was sensational, chocolate tart with whipped sour cream, a taste sensation. The service is friendly and the overall restaurant is welcoming. It is a great place to dine. More

Italian | Newtown, Inner West

Discovered this place in November 2018, and it’s been a regular haunt ever since. The food is wonderful, the selection of wines excellent (small range, but a perfect combination of quality Italian and Australian labels). Service is lively and helpful. No pressure to leave quickly, which is very welcome given the size of the place and its popularity. The booking system on-line is a dream — easy to use, and precise and quick. Highly, highly recommended — interstate visitors I’ve introduced to this gem of a restaurant have made a beeline back to it each time they visit! More

Contemporary Korean | Abbotsford, Inner West

WHAT WE SERVE Contemporary Korean cuisine. What is contemporary Korean cuisine? Korean cuisine has a long history and traditional food techniques, however, they are locked in a certain format. This format is a culture that is familiar to Koreans only. Of course, traditional Korean food is a great culture and I want to publicize it, but I want to introduce a new style of Korean food twist with modern techniques and flavors. While S.O.G has been inspired by and respected traditional Korean cuisine as the foundation for our cooking philosophy, and also we will strove to explore new techniques and ingredients continually. We are small Local restaurant. As the name of our restaurant, we tried to make comfortable, and peaceful space like Sanctuary of god. Our restaurant open for everyone. Please come and feel free to enjoy our food and drinks what we prepared.More

Korean | Canterbury, Inner West

The flavours of Korea and Mexico have formed an unlikely, but delicious allegiance, given equal billing at Canterbury's modern fusion eatery Vecino. It's an uncommon culinary mash-up, but not one you'll forget in a hurry, thanks to a creative menu packed full of big flavours. Co-owners Tony Lee and Eunice Lim play on the similarities between two famously lively cuisines, drawing both on Lee's Korean heritage and his experience working in Mexican kitchens across the world.More
