Best Food And Craft Beer To Try In Sydney


Australia has plenty of dishes that are classic and perfect to enjoy with a quality craft beer. If we are talking about the country tastiest staple foods, we can´t ignore Chicken parmigiana, Burgers, Steak and Fish 'n chips (head to The Keg & Brew’s for the perfect IPA to go with your fish).

According to The Good Food Australia’s best pub dishes are the following:

1.      Calamari rings

2.      Burgers

3.      Roast of the Day

4.      Mixed grill

5.      Wedges with sour cream

6.      Chicken Parmigiana

7.      Steak

8.      Prawns (the famous “Prawn Cocktail”)

9.      Fish & Chips

But the question is: Where to head when it’s time to eat and drink? All these dished and the best food in Sydney can be found at some of the pubs or restaurants in Sydney. For example,

The Edinburgh Castle Hotel that has been open since 1885, or The Imperial Hotel Erskineville a Sydney icon.

Also, the burger at The Lord Gladstone is rated one the best and if you are looking for an awesome deep-fried schnitzel, then The Unicorn at Paddington’s is your way to go.

If you head to The Public House, you will find some of the best-roasted pork bellies in town and Huxley’s serves some fried chicken that will blow your mind.

At The Dog Hotel, our Bistro Menu was created to offer all of the classics we just named, including amazing burgers like our Spice Marinated Grilled Chicken Burger or the Veggie Burger

with Grilled halloumi cheese.

If you are a Steak fan come and try our 200g Hanger Steak served with your choice of sides & sauce. And for our “Classics” don´t miss out on the Fish & Chips, Chicken Schnitzel, Nachos (with a melted three-cheese mix) or the Beef Ribs served with fries, house slaw & bourbon barbeque sauce.

Let’s not forget to mention our 13-inch wood-fired pizza available from 11 in the morning till late, daily. We also offer Daily Specials, a classic in every Aussie Pub:

I just wanted to send out thanks and compliments. Our function yesterday was amazing, both the food and venue were very impressive. We had so many comments from our guests on both how delicious the meal was and the great venue. Baptiste and his staff were excellent. Couldn't be happier with the day.

I had a great experience at the DOG last weekend. i had booked outside however due to the cold weather the team changed the booking at the very last minute and set our group of 20 up with a new spot indoors. Roast dinner was delicious and only had good feedback from other guests. Love the beer selection!!

Blake S – July 2016

We had a great day & everything went to plan. The music was brilliant & got the atmosphere going! 
Thanks so much for your help, I would definitely use the DOG again for a function or recommend you to others.

All guests had an amazing time and were really well fed. The staff at the DOG were very polite and accommodating, no issues with them at all.  Really impressive. The Manager was very helpful and attentive.  I did not need to ask for remind him or the chefs on anything. I did say thank you to the staff, but if you could please pass on my compliments again. I will definitely recommend your venue.

It was a good night. Our older guests were very impressed with the refurbishment of the hotel.We were very happy with the attentiveness and help of your Manager on the night....can't remember his name but seemed to have a French accent. Also bar staff good, particularly the young woman who came out from the bar and helped us during the night in various ways.
