Topped with tasty bolognaise, or just simple sour cream, spuds are a great lunch or dinner option, and certainly healthier than some fast foods around town. The bad bit about these baked potatoes, is that sometimes they can be hard to track down, so we want you to tell us where you think Sydney's best spuds can be found. We know a few places where they're on offer, but need you to fill in the rest.
In Surry Hills you'll find Mad Spuds Cafe, who have a dedicated spud menu alongside their other breakfast and lunch options. Simple potatoes start at $8 but for one with all the trimmings you're looking at $14. It is all a bit indulgent, with toppings like goats cheese, brie, mozzarella, feta, and sour cream, or a tasty vegan option with chick pea crunch, beetroot relish, avocado, organic sprouts, and olive oil. The potatoes at Mad Spuds are a range of varieties, all from a farm in the Southern Highlands of NSW, and this is one of the things that makes them taste so great.
Food courts can be another great place to get a spud, which means they're a great thing to sate those lunch-time cravings. One such food court can be found on the 5th floor of Westfield Sydney. Surrounded by tasty snags, sushi, pies, and burritos, you'll also find Spuds'n'Crepes. Their tasty potatoes come with a range of fillings for you to choose from, and when you're done you can also enjoy one of the freshly made crepes as a dessert.
For a unique spud experience, head to Govinda's. They stock a delicious vegetarian buffet, that you can enjoy before heading into their boutique cinema and kicking back on one of their comfy chairs. As part of the pre-movie menu you can sometimes pick up a delicious spud, but unfortunately their menu does change, so they can't be guaranteed. The buffet option also means you can create your own spud masterpiece, adding anything else on offer that takes your fancy.
So let us know if you've had a good or bad experience at any of the places we've mentioned, and if you think you've got a better one, then tell us all about it. We think spuds are a great thing to grab, but now we need your help to find Sydney's best.
