You can eat your way around the world in Sydney thanks to the waves of migrants from Europe, Asia, China and the Middle East who have transformed the food scene over the years. Fusion may be a dirty word in some gastronomic zones, but here it stands for the best mix of styles and flavours that only a truly multicultural society can concoct. While there are pockets of Italian and Greek, Asian is Sydney’s default cuisine as large numbers of Chinese, Vietnamese, Thai, Koreans, Taiwanese and Japanese all call Australia home. There are eat streets everywhere: • the food court at Dixon Street in Chinatown is so progressive there’s even a taco stand among the Cantonese staples; • Campbell Street between Castlereagh and George is Thai town for food supplies and eating; • and John Street in Cabramatta is Sydney’s Ho Chi Minh City, with dozens of places selling everything from spring rolls to fresh sugar cane juice. To feel like you’re in India head west to Harris Park in Parramatta, to Strathfield and East Ryde for kimchi or Korean dumplings, and for Lebanese around Haldon Street in Lakemba. For the city’s most famed charcoal chicken join the hordes at El Jannah in Granville, where the garlic sauce has a cult following of its own. Then there’s the most egalitarian of places, the beach, where all the cultures come together. Bondi with groomed white sand and rolling surf is the busiest and most famous. It’s also cosmopolitan and a multiethnic magnet with an array of eateries to match.
