Sydney’s Best Late Night Bites
Make like a celebrity and enjoy a stop at Harry’s Cafe de Wheels
Harry’s Café de Wheels is a Sydney icon beloved by celebrities, politicians and basically anyone that gets their hands one of the delicious pies. Beginning in the 1930s Harry’s has been catering to the late night crowd, and for that we and the rest of the city’s partygoers are thankful.
If you are not familiar with the famed Tiger, that needs to change on your next visit to Sydney, because frankly you are missing out, but until then allow us to introduce you. The Tiger is a lean beef pie topped with mash, peas and gravy, coincidentally a few of our favorite things and it tastes, as you would expect, of absolute perfection. Just thinking of its flaky crust and all-star flavor combo gets the stomach grumbling.
But, don’t take our word on it, Harry’s pies are in with the in crowd and have attracted the likes of Sir Elton John, Prince Harry (must be the name) and Sir Richard Branson, if it’s good enough for them, it is good enough for us. Not to mention that it was voted Australia’s favorite pies in 2007, so the entire continent has given Harry’s its stamp of approval.
Best of all you won’t break then bank indulging in this local tradition, for less than $10 you can treat yourself to the famous Tiger, a beverage and an unbelievable view. The Historic Woolloomooloo location not only has water front property but it has been named a ‘quintessential Sydney icon’ by the National Trust of Australia (NSW) and is included on its Register. If it gets better than this we haven’t found it yet.
So now that we have shared our favorite late night Sydney eats, we would love to hear yours. Where do you go to cure your post partying hunger?
