If the way its chefs are regularly poached by restaurants overseas is any indication, Sydney has blossomed into one of the world’s great culinary capitals, offering a fantastic range of cosmopolitan restaurants, covering every imaginable cuisine. For a comprehensive guide, consider investing in Cheap Eats in Sydney or the Sydney Morning Herald Good Food Guide and check out grabyourfork.blogspot.com, a good foodie blog with lots of restaurant reviews. The many fascinating ethnic enclaves, representing the city’s diverse communities, serve up authentic cuisines, including Jewish on Hall St, Bondi Beach; Chinese in Haymarket and Ashfield; Turkish and Indian on Cleveland St, Surry Hills; Italian in East Sydney, Leichhardt and Haberfield; Portuguese on New Canterbury Rd, Petersham; Greek in Marrickville and Brighton-Le-Sands; and Indonesian on Anzac Parade, in Kingsford and Kensington. Much further out, reached by train, Cabramatta is very much a Little Vietnam.
