Eating Out: Darling Square

Darling Square is Sydney’s newest neighbourhood for food lovers. Located between Darling Harbour and Chinatown, the precinct is overflowing with restaurants to try, and includes a few well-known favourites, along with some brand new dining experiences.

If you’re after some French-inspired cuisine, head to Auvers Café. Here you’ll find a menu that mixes French, Asian and modern Australian flavours to create some delicious dishes. From matcha pancakes to French toast with yuzu grape jelly and black sesame-fried ice cream, there are plenty of interesting creations to try.

Dopa by Devon is the old-school dessert bar re-imagined. Situated along the precinct’s ‘treat street’, this dessert concept store specialises in all things sweet, with a menu packed with Japanese-inspired milkshakes, shaved ice desserts, pudding, parfaits and giant cookies. You’re guaranteed to leave on a sugar high.

If you’re looking for a quick bite, Makers Dozen houses 12 different food retailers under one roof. From pastry and desserts to Vietnamese, Sri Lankan and Japanese, it’s a casual dining area that’s open from early until late, every day of the week.

The majority of the precinct is open and by the end of 2019, Darling Square and its’ surrounding streets will be home to over 70 new food, drink and lifestyle retailers.
