2. LUNCH
Family-style som tum
at Samosorn

3. SNACK
Rye tacos
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

4. DINNER
Caviar, potato and sauce allemande
at Rockpool

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.

5. DESSERT
Moon Pie
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.
