Recounting the adventures in Sydney and beyond! :)

The Soda Factory, located in Surry Hills, is the place to be if you're after cheap food, great drinks, and a fun night out with friends. They offer special discounts every night including $1 hot dogs, $10 bucket of chicken, $5 burgers, $12 cocktails and so much more.
$10 fried chicken bucket, Mac 'n' cheese spring rolls, and pulled pork burger
I visited this very hip bar on a Wednesday night to take advantage of their $10 fried chicken bucket deal. There was about 10 pieces of chicken in the bucket and it was served with their special tangy mayo sauce. I guarantee you that nothing will be left but the bucket and the bones at the end of the night. Also on my list was the mac and cheese spring rolls and the pulled pork burger. The springs rolls were definitely interesting - the macaroni was al dente, the cheese was super creamy and the skin of the spring roll was really crispy - a balance of all textures in one mouthful!
Another thing on their menu that deserves a mention is the soda floats. You can choose from raspberry or whiskey. It is served in a tall glass, packed with ice cream and whipped cream on top. For just $14, I think it is definitely worth a try.
The staff and bartenders are extremely friendly, and the setting of the bar is very chic and retro. The Soda Factory is a very popular Sydney bar, so make sure you make a booking or head there early before it gets too packed.
