Once again, Sydney has pulled together the pieces of this city that make it such a diverse and interesting place to live. This month’s Grub’s Guide puts those pieces on a plate, wraps them up in a napkin and licks them off the tips of its fingers, with Burgerpalooza, the best restaurant in Indonesia, a taste of the eastern suburbs and the Cabramatta Moon Festival.
Taste of Coogee - September 1 and 2
As Spring begins, we’re starting to warm up and feel that pull to the seaside suburbs. Celebrate everything we love about the warmer months with over 100 stalls like Mr Bao and Sofrito Paella, alongside Batch Brewing Co, Yulli’s Brew’s and Peterson Champagne house. It’s only a gold coin to enter, so get involved.
Locavore Bali x Olio Kensington St Collaboration – September 6 and 7
As part of the Four Hands collaborative series, the chefs from Lovacore, Indonesia’s best restaurant, and #22 on the World’s 50 Best Restaurants in 2017 list are hosting two dinners at Olio Kensington Street. Focusing on sustainability, Chefs Eelke Plasmeijer and Ray Adriansyah will bring Locavore’s community-focused fare to Sydney.
The seven-course feast shared between the chefs is priced at $170 per person including matching wines.
Indie Spirits Tasting Sydney – September 16
Back for its fourth year, Indie Spirits Tasting brings over 40 exhibitors showcasing more than 150 craft spirits in the beautifully ornate Restaurant Hubert.

Burgerpalooza – September 22 and 23
Sydney is still enamoured with the humble burger. Australia’s largest burger festival, Burgerpalooza is back for a thirds year, bringing the big boys of Sydney’s burger scene to Parramatta’s Prince Alfred Square. BL Burgers, Down N’ Out, Mister Gee’s, Burger Head and Superior Burger all return while Ume Burger, Chef’s Kitchen and Hardstyle Kitchen will make their debut. Live art, music and stand up comedy will provide the entertainment over both days.
Cabramatta Moon Festival – September 23
Now in it’s 20th year, the Cabramatta Moon Festival brings together a range of entertainment to celebrate the annual spring equinox. On the night there will be a raft of food stalls, dragon dances and evening fireworks. Get down to Freedom Plaza, Cabramatta for a moon cake or ten.
