Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
Make this off-centre spot in the middle of Little India, with its cool industrial interior of exposed walls and hand-weld light fixtures with exposed bulbs, your dining destination of choice. A hand-laid brick oven is the beating heart of Sideways, which serves Australian-Mediterranean plates that have been kissed by wood fire. This includes its crisp and airy sourdough loaves ($4), baked fresh daily and served warm with an assortment of dips like avocado pesto ($12) and jalapeno hummus ($12). But don’t scoff down all your bread just yet – save some for dipping the roasted shrimps ($14), which come swimming in a rich and smoky broth made from their heads and shells.
There’s something for everyone at Sideways. Vegetarians and vegans are well taken care of with options like zucchini fritters ($24) and eggplant stuffed flatbread ($15) with roasted peppers. As for the meat eaters, fill up with pork belly ($24) that’s been smoked for hours paired with a side of spiced okra and Jerusalem artichokes. And if you’re there before 5pm, choose from an array of brunch plates from the Sicilian Surprise ($16), sourdough toast topped with spicy Italian sausage and burrata to Spanish baked eggs ($18).
