Sydney is arguably the most visited part of Australia (sorry Melbourne). With must-sees such as the Sydney Opera House, the Harbour Bridge and Bondi Beach, it’s a hotspot for tourists and other locals from within Australia too!
Other than sightseeing spots, Sydney offers foodies a plethora of cuisines and cafes to choose from – from tantalizing brunch to sweet desserts, Sydney has them all. Even if you only have a few days to spend, you’ll be satisfied for sure; you’ll probably want to book a return trip after this though!
Here’s a 3D2N itinerary for Sydney for travellers who are visiting Sydney for the first time. Trust us when we say it won’t be your last.
If there is one thing we cannot live without, it is, undoubtedly, desserts. You name it, we love it. There is just something about that sweet, indulgent treat that never fails to light up our day. This time around, instead of going for our usual choice of ice cream and waffles, we decided to spoil ourselves with something a little different — an underrated, yet equally sinful treat: brownies.
We paid a visit to one of the most highly-raved brownie shops in Singapore lately: BUNDT by The Backyard Bakers. Nestled in Havelock II, they are a hole-in-the-wall takeaway kiosk near Clarke Quay MRT dishing out sinful pieces of chocolatey happiness, also known as dangerously addictive brownies. They also serve coffee.
Albeit hard to find, the joint was still constantly packed with eager customers waiting to sample BUNDT’s bite-sized goodies.
When you hear “IKEA”, your first thought is most probably their famous Swedish meatballs that everyone in Singapore has eaten at least once in their lives. However, with a now increasingly localised menu, IKEA’s restaurant has so much more to offer than just their meatballs.
From the standard Swedish fare to Singaporean classics such as their Chicken Rendang, we’ve narrowed down their extensive menu, highlighting some of our favourite dishes that we think everyone should try at IKEA!
If you were to look up the best cafes in the Bugis area, you would have a pretty hefty list. It’s definitely a hot spot for new openings with the abundance of shophouses and lots for retail and F&B.
Newly opened in Jalan Klapa, near the North Bridge area and a few streets down of the famed Haji Lane and Arab Street, is Double Up Coffee. It’s a minimalist’s dream with stone seats, wooden furnishings and an overall industrial theme.
Jalan Besar is home to many eateries and Sum Dim Sum is one of the latest additions to the neighbourhood. Dim sum is a well-loved cuisine by most Singaporeans. Be it for breakfast or supper, we are always ready for some dim sum.
We had high expectations when we entered the Tiffany blue-themed restaurant and could not wait to satisfy our grumbling tummies. But is this new place an uprising competition to the ever-famous supper spot Swee Choon that is just down the road? Or just hype?
Let’s find out.
The quieter sister of Keong Saik Road, Bukit Pasoh Road deserves equal credit for being a foodie’s lane. Lined with hip bars and charming cafes, this preserved street has won our hearts over with its laidback, rustic aura.
And, if you haven’t heard, this stretch has received another addition to its family of establishments.
Meet Bakery’s Bench Bakery — a new artisanal neighbourhood bakery that churns out stellar bakes and gourmet sandwiches. From cranberry scones to croque monsieur, they’ve got everything you need for a dignified brunch. Caffeine junkies, not to worry, they also have a respectable selection of coffee brews and tea beverages.
Being more than just a national dish and a bowl of noodle soup, Pho carries the tradition and history of Vietnam since the 19th century. Pho has since gone through a series of modification as the years go by, but it remains a well-loved dish by many.
Amongst the many food options in Somerset, we spotted this Que in TripleOne Somerset that serves Pho, Banh Mi, Bun Cha and other Vietnamese dishes. The menu is relatively affordable with nothing over S$10.90.
Aside from the usual chains you see in town, maybe this could be a new choice for you to savour!
