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.
Really beautiful food here. Just greatness on a plate.
BEST SMALL BAR – LOBO PLANTATION
Easily a favourite. Lobo is fantastic with a great vibe, chilled bartenders and its looks luxe. Hard to beat.
BEST STRAIGHT PICKUP JOINT – FRANKIES PIZZA
Frankie’s pizza won this. Okay. Great vibe and fun to boot. Craft beers and good margaritas = hetero winners. Beat the door down.
BEST BARTENDER – UNCLE MINGS BAR
Uncle Ming’s this fantastic sino opium den themed small bar and they have the best bartender. Dumplings, imported beers and cocktails in teapots.
BEST BURGER – BONARCHE BURGERS
Bonarche Burgers does rather amazing burgers and the chips and burgers are worth hoofing to Leichhardt for. Chu marr whatt..
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.
