Where to Eat The dining

Where to Eat The dining choices in Sydney are almost endless, but on this trip I want to find something a little different. These two fit the bill perfectly. Alibi Bar & Kitchen Night 1 - I headed to the Woolloomooloo district to try out a new plant-base restaurant call Alibi. Located within the Ovolo Hotel, Alibi offers an incredible menu created by plant-based chef Matthew Kenney. Kenney’s food philosophy is simple, “clean eating need never compromise on taste” This evening started with one of their signature cocktails, The Godfather Thompson. A mix of Laphroaig 10-year-old scotch whiskey, barrel aged whiskey bitters, angostura bitters, orange and liquid nitrogen. Wait for the liquid nitrogen to evaporate, then pour the mixture in to your glass. Very tasty. As a true carnivore I wasn’t sure what to expect from a planet-based menu. But fear not, these dishes are amazing. Full of flavor, texture and well seasoned. If fact after only a few bites I forgot for a moment that there was no meat. My favorites, Kimchi Dumplings and the Lasagna. Vegetarian or not, you must give Alibi a try while staying in Sydney. 8 . DRIFTTRAVEL.COM

Spice Alley Spice Alley is tucked out of the way behind the Kensington Street lane way in the Chippendale district. This street food meets lane way open air food court takes you on a culinary journey through a variety of Asian cuisine. Dine on Singaporean dishes at Alex Lee Kitchen, Bang Luck Thai Street Food, Old Jim Kee’s Malaysian spices and Cantonese street food from Hong Kong Diner and that will just get you started. But before you dig in, venture on down the street to Handpicked Cellar Door and grab a bottle of your preferred wine. For me, nothing pairs better with Beef Rendang and Roti than a Margaret River Merlot. Also, make sure you place an order at Shanghai Dumpling Bar. This new addition to the Spice Alley group prepares some of the most delicious dumpling I’ve eaten. Handmade in unique flavored pastry including pumpkin, spinach and beetroot these dumplings can be cooked potsticker style or boiled. Either way, you will leave wanting more. TRAVEL OFTEN .
