Bacon, maple and pumpkin tart
Slide up to the bar for a flat white and this sensational pastry crowned with thick, maple-glazed bacon. pinbone.com.au.
Family-style som tum
The local heroes behind Haymarket hot spot Chat Thai have opened a hawker stall at Pitt Street Mall that peddles regional Isaan fare. Among the accoutrements on their supersize papaya salad: pickles, cracklings and house-made pork sausage. samosorn.com.au.
at Café Paci
What happens when a Finnish chef takes over a former Mexican bar for a yearlong pop-up? Rye tortillas filled with rice pudding, buttery eggs and a smattering of chives. It's a cultural collision that somehow works. cafepaci.com.au
Caviar, potato and sauce allemande
Neil Perry's mainstay has moved to a glam space downtown, with a tasting menu to match. One highlight: this poached egg veiled in a crisp potato cage, drizzled in shellfish-tinged velouté and topped with sturgeon roe. rockpool.com.
at Moon Park
Locals are obsessing over the deconstructed moon pie at this Korean-inspired Redfern gem. The game-changing twist: a thin layer of ginger jelly, to offset the sweetness of white chocolate pudding, prunes and torched marshmallows. moon-park.com.au.
6. FOR THE FLIGHT HOME
at Flour & Stone
After 10 years in classical French kitchens, star baker Nadine Ingram has a new home for her beloved recipes. Pick up a bag of her fresh-from-the-oven gingerbread cookies, hand-painted in a rotating roster of whimsical designs. flourandstone.com.au.
