The gastronomic scene of Sydney is characterized by a large number of fresh products and biological origin that are offered in its restaurants. Due to its location close to the ocean, fish and shellfish are the star ingredients of recipes. Currently, among the most avant-garde restaurants is the butterfly lobster salad, a prevalent type of seafood. The barramundi, the spider crab and the yabby, which is a type of crayfish, are also widely used in local cuisine.
Regarding the areas, in Darling Harbor and East Circular Quay, you can find all kinds of restaurants. Although in the first area there are somewhere you pay more for the spectacular views they offer than for the quality of the food. To the east of the city highlights Victoria, Darlinghurst and Crown streets by the high concentration of restaurants.
In Chinatown, as you can imagine, you can find a lot of Asian restaurants at a reasonable price, and in the vicinity of Harris Park authentic Indian cuisine. Another recommendable area in Newtown, where the cheap places frequented by students abound. The city has a specific alternative style, and you can find many types of restaurants: Italian, Japanese, Turkish, Australian.
The city at night has many possibilities. If you want to have fun with the activities that Sydney offers, you have festivals at any time of the year, mainly in summer. The offer of dance, theater or cinema shows is also comprehensive.
If instead, you prefer to set up something on your own, the city has many bars, pubs, and clubs that you can go with your friends. But you must know that only some are licensed to open all night, many close before 3: 00. You should also think about the payment entries and the dress codes since in some places they take them into account.
