King Street Wharf will be fuelling our love affair for all things food by playing host to Sydney's newest culinary event on Friday 19 – Thursday 25 July 2013.
On The Wharf (Friday 19 – Saturday 20 July 2013 / 12noon-4pm)
During this two day festival, make your way down to King Street Wharf for lunch under Sydney's blue Winter skies. Spoil your taste buds with food boasting flavours from around the world. Or simply soak up the atmosphere and enjoy the live music. Plates will be priced from $5-$12 each - so you can sample a few dishes without breaking the bank.
Dishes include arancini balls ($8) from Casa Di Nico, green chicken curry rice ($10) from I Thai, quesadillas ($12) from La Cita, chilli coconut prawns ($12) from The Malaya and mini beef bourguignonne pies ($12) from Steersons Steakhouse. I know I will be making a bee line to Vessel Italian & Bar to indulge in their homemade tiramisu ($5) and ricotta filled cannoli ($5).
Hats off to these ladies for bearing the cold with such warm smiles
In The Restaurants (Friday 19 – Thursday 25 July 2013)
The restaurants and bars along King Street Wharf will also take part in this culinary celebration. There will be opportunities to meet the chefs, special wine tastings, live music and dancing. A few of the restaurants have menus specially designed for the festival.
So whether you have a craving for Japanese at Kobe Jones or at Wharf Teppanyaki which features the largest teppanyaki table in Australia; want to indulge in a Mezze feast at Mediterranean Bar & Grill; tuck into a main of lamb shank with soft polenta gremolata at The Hudson; or simply enjoy a drink by the waterfront at the Cargo Bar or Bungalow 8, there is something for everyone. During the festival, The Loft will be offering cocktails with "tantalising tastes inspired from the Great Gatsby". They sound like they're worth a try.
Make a restaurant reservation to avoid disappointment.
