The Most YOLO Meals In Sydney

Life’s too short to keep ordering the same thing from your local pizza joint over and over again. For a truly Sydney experience, try these YOLO meals that will shake things up again and get you out of your dining rut.

Tasting Menu - Quay

Yes, it’s expensive, but everyone should splurge at least once for some top quality grub. You can bet that anything on their menu will be great, but try the nine-course tasting menu which starts with smoked eel, jamon jelly, eggplant cream and shaved green walnuts and ends with some handmade petit fours.

Go on - treat yo’ self.

Cheeseburger and Fries - Mary’s

You’re not a true Sydneysider until you’ve queued up outside Mary’s in Newtown for a bite of this bad boy. It may take a while to get in, and it’s hardly the fanciest thing in the world, but it is universally agreed that the juicy burger and crispy fries are worth the wait.  

Stoner’s Delight - Ms G’s

This is not just doughnut ice cream. This is doughnut ice cream with peanut dulche de leche, peanut and pretzel brittle, crispy bacon, Mars Bar brownie, passionfruit curd, potato chips and deep-fried Nutella. Yep. That’s an actual sentence.

Seriously, you should probably have this meal only once, your arteries probably couldn’t handle another hit.

Strawberry and Watermelon Cake - Black Star Pastry

This is the bakery’s signature treat made up of two layers of almond meringue, fresh whipped cream, watermelon, strawberries, pistachios and rose petals. If your mouth isn’t watering at the sound of this fragrant masterpiece, then you seriously need to re-evaluate your life choices.

Punjabi thali - Maya Da Dhaba

If you thought that Indian food is just about butter chicken, you are so wrong. There are two restaurants under this name. The first is upstairs and has a more formal setting but if you go downstairs around lunchtime to the vegetarian restaurant, order one of these thali’s.

You get to try a little bit of everything as well as a little kheer (rice pudding) for dessert. It’s the perfect first-step into the exciting world of Indian cuisine!
