In addition to the toasties, soups, salads, themed meal and pass-around pizza and cocktails pies (5-7pm), you can now enjoy a hot dog, curry, or Mexican feast. A sample of what’s on offer (Sydney lounge dinner menu) follows:

Luke Mangan self-service Hot Dogs

Pass arounds 5-7pm – mozzarella pizza, lamb and rosemary mini-pies; minestrone soup; Israeli cous cous, Thai noodle, potato with sour cream and herbs salads; make your own Greek salad – meatballs, tzatiki, Greek salad (no feta), marinated feta cheese, pita pocket, Mexican cantina – chickpea & chorizo, tortillas, avocado dip, sour cream, corn chips, caramel slice, and a cheese plate. While hot dogs are on Melbourne’s menu, and curry is in Brisbane.

This has of course been designed by our chef, Luke Mangan! Read more »

Crave Sydney

Crave Sydney International Food Festival is an annual celebration of Sydney’s cultural and outdoor lifestyle that takes place throughout October. Locals will get the opportunity to take in parts of the city they’ve never seen before, while tourists will feel at home in an international city full of great experiences.

There are multiple events as part of Crave Sydney International Food Festival: some established, others brand new and some free. Whether it’s breakfast on the Sydney Harbour Bridge, discovering art in unusual nooks and crannies, or travelling to islands not usually open to the public, make sure you get outside for some October fun.
