Taste your way around the globe in Sydney

Sydney is among the most cosmopolitan cities on the planet and gourmets can taste their way around the globe without leaving the city.

Destination NSW has just unveiled a range of newly opened eating out options.

Dim sum in Summer Hill

Cantonese favourite Lotus has opened up a new sister venue in Summer Hill, the group's first foray in Sydney's inner west. Lotus Dumpling Bar serves many of the group's favourite menu items, including Peking duck pancakes and juicy pork xiao long bao, as well as a variety of vegan and vegetarian offerings.

Tequila-spiked Mexican dining

Recently reopened Bar Patrón brings the fiesta vibes of Mexico to Circular Quay, with a Mexican menu inspired by executive chef Manuel Diaz's Oaxacan background and a Patrón tequila-infused menu. The signature grilled lobster is drizzled with a creamy sauce made with Patrón Silver and Oaxacan cheese.

Catalonian cuisine

New Spanish restaurant Parlar brings the flavours of Catalonian cuisine to Potts Point. There's a plush fit out and a menu that stars photogenic tapas snacks and a range of Iberian-influenced mains.

Drink in the Basque

The new dining space from acclaimed Firedoor chef Lennox Hastie is an ode to the  wines of Spain's Basque country. Gildas, located right around the corner in Surry Hills, will also serve dishes cooked on  flames, with local produce at the forefront of the menu.

Zumbo comes to the QT

Dessert king Adriano Zumbo has created a high tea like no other at CBD hotel QT Sydney. The menu will feature savoury creations (like Champagne lobster rolls) as well as his signature Zumbarons and  passionfruit tart.

Turkish goes vego

Inspired by the vegetable-driven meze bars of the Aegean coast, celebrated Sydney Turkish chef Somer Sivrioğlu (Efendy and Anason) has opened a plant-predominant venue in the CBD, Maydanoz. From charred cauliflower to haloumi honey kebabs and cavolo nero leek pie, the meat-free menu offers plenty of choices.
