Thought I’d give a quick shout up and round up of a few places around sydney that won AltMedia’s Best of Sydney 2013 Public Vote. Did a bit of writing for AltMedia and scouted out a few venues and #jugfav Lobo Plantation which is brank spanking new even won Best Small Bar as did Uncle Mings. The winners are all worth your attention and gasp: Bonarche won best burger. Now I’m hankering. Almost all eats listed here are great and well worth checking out

BEST BISTRO PUB – TRACKS SPORTS AND SOCIAL

Congrats to Sarah Knights and Scott Wade for winning Best Bistro Pub with Tracks Sports and Social. The food’s pretty fantastic and they do some mean eating chicken wings. Lamb ribs were amazing.

BEST BREAKFAST – DEVON

Devon won best brekkie but lets be honest here, they’re probably better for their lunch menu which is superb. Truly some of the best eggs around. Here’s a selection of pics from the Spring Menu.

BEST DESSERT – GELATO MESSINA

Best Gelato in Australia wins best dessert? Easily. How good is this? Gelato Messina is full of win and their instagram is the epitome of foodporn. My laziest blog post yet because you shouldn’t be reading, you should be queuing.
