Taste of Sydney starts today and runs for 4 days at Centennial Park. The City Lane got to take a sneak peak at some of the dishes that will be offer during the event and picked out what, in our opinion, are the 5 must try dishes.
Biota Dining (Dipped Lamb Caramel Buns)
Pork belly is hugely popular, and for good reason, but for some reason lamb belly hasn’t really caught on in the same way. Those who haven’t tried lamb belly are missing out as it’s an absolutely divine thing to eat and, with Biota Dining dipping it in a hot caramel glaze inside a soft bun, things just got a whole lot tastier. Cost = 10 Crowns.
Burek, borek, byurek, pita, zelnik. No matter what you call it, this baked and filled filo pastry delicacy of the nations that formed part of the Ottoman empire is one of the most delicious things that there is to eat on this planet. Efendy has gotten creative with their signature dish for this year’s Taste of Sydney and have incorporated duck, almond, fig and burnt cinnamon into their version of burek. Cost = 12 Crowns.
Porteno (BBQ’d Porchetta)
It’s not the cheapest of dishes at Taste of Sydney, but could very well be the best. Barbecued porchetta with chilli, fennel, silverbeet & truffle pecorino. At its heart its a simple dish and one that promises to let the finely balanced individual ingredients be the stars. Cost = 20 Crowns.
Movida (Leche Merengada)
Melbourne institution Movida has been kicking some serious goals since opening their Sydney outpost and their Taste of Sydney dessert has grabbed our attention. Recently there’s been a trend towards high quality, innovative flavour soft serve ice-cream and Movida’s citrus and cinnamon soft serve ice-cream with fennel & olive oil pastry sounds like it’s going to be a real winner. Cost = 6 Crowns.
Jonah’s (Milk Chocolate & Raspberry Ganache)
Another dessert, this one’s only available on the Saturday. It’s hard to improve on the classic combination of chocolate and raspberry, but we’re intrigued by Jonah’s inclusion of sweet corn custard and salted caramel popcorn to the mix. Will the extra flavours hurt of enhance the ganache? There’s only one way to find out. Cost = 6 Crowns.
