This place is legendary! In fact, it's almost become a tourist attraction these days. Basically a street stand that has attained its status by always being there for the hungry masses in the wee hours of the morning. The usual fare are hot dogs and pies of all sorts. The food is good and cheap ($5 meal, can't beat that!) - just be weary of sea gulls trying to steal it from you. And it's only open all night on weekends. Weekdays I think it closes around 1 or 2am.
Favorite Dish: I had one of the pies, can't remember which one. It wasn't bad at all, fairly filling too. Be sure to grab extra napkins!!
Directions: Near the Finger Wharf, around Woolloomooloo Bay.
A Sydney institution. Down in Woolloomoolloo Bay is the kiosk that has remained static for years. If you need proof, look at the b/w photos dotted round the outside walls. And although near the Naval Yards, its had its fair share of rich and famous grace its ketchup bottles. Grab yourself one of the fantastic Aussie national dishes - meat pie. Have it served with mashed potato and mushy peas dolloped on the top. Bung on a sauce and there you have it - a fantastic haute-cuisine, Australian style (yeah, right -:)). Its a must, but if you can't face it, stick to the hotdogs. Stand round the kiosk staring at the photos or go sit on the wooden beam protecting cars from parking in the water of the docks. Not exactly the most stylish of environments, but you should do it once. (plastic knives and napkins provided)
Favorite Dish: That pie described above. Its the most expensive on the menu at A$4.
Address: Woolloomoolloo Bay
Harry's Cafe' de Wheels in Wooloomooloo Bay is famous for their pies. Faaaantastically good! Try a Tiger Pie,with mashed potatoes,peas and sauce. Mmmmmmmmm.......
I had a really hard time trying to walk by this place without buying a pie. I didn't happen...
Directions: Wooloomooloo Bay,10 minutes walk from Kings Cross towards the Opera House.
With all the different nationalities in Sydney, you can basically find whatever you want, whenever you want it!! If you happen to be near Kings Cross, take a trip to Harry's Cafe De Wheels. They serve some of the best pies I have ever eaten. You can get all varieties and you can also top your pie with mashed potato, mushy peas and gravy...if you want to. If you are around the Bondi Junction area there is a place called Rocky's pizza place which is also great. They have pizza (duh!) pasta, salads and gelato. Food in Sydney is generally high priced. If you are looking for a budget meal, check out the local pub or RSL club. In some RSL clubs they have a night where you can get all you can eat for around $5.00, you just have to find somewhere that does this. If you are looking for an expensive meal, you know, the ones where the plate is almost empty, places like Glebe and Paddington are for you! The food in Australia is great, so much variety. I am sure anyone visiting Sydney will be pleases with the selection of food. If you are not, there is always McDonalds and Pizza hut (which I think is better than the States anyway!!), Burger King and KFC!
Favorite Dish: If you eat at Harrys Cafe De Wheels and you like chicken, try the chicken pie with mash, mushy peas and gravy YUMMMM!!
If you eat at Rockys Pizza Place, try the Warm Chicken Salad.
If you choose to eat at McDonalds or Pizza Hut, get whatever you usually do, chances are it will be better than what you are used to anyways!!
It is a small stall just next to Finger Wharf.
Favorite Dish: The tiger pie is interesting! It is beef pie topped with mashed potato and green peas. The hot dog is nice too.
