Endless Antipasto Platters

Sure, some people might wish for a never ending packet of Tim Tams, but if you ask us those people are limiting themselves. Why have a never ending supply of only one thing, when you can have an antipasto board that is refilled for you three times. This is the Thursday night special at Fratelli Fresh. All you need to do is roll up after 5pm, lay down $20 per person (for a maximum of 10 people) and an enjoy a snack parade that includes cured meats, gorgonzola, olives, semi-dried tomatoes, bruschetta and focaccia.

Boodle Fight at Sizzling Filo


No cutlery. No plates. Just one long table piled with food. This, my friends, is a boodle fight. It’s how the Filipino military used to eat in an army mess hall. Today’s boodle fights have evolved into more of a communal feast for family and friends. Sizzling Fillo has ten different banquets to choose from, so it’s worth rounding up at least three of your mates who won’t freak out about eating with their fingers. Pre-book at least three days in advance.

Nepali Breakfast at AD's Kitchen


There’s nothing like seeing a batch of freshly cooked puri coming straight out of the kitchen. Puffed up like UFOs, these hollow and soft deep fried breads have slightly crisp edges and a speckled golden brown surface. They cook them all morning long on weekends at AD’s Kitchen, one of the few places offering a traditional Nepali breakfast in Sydney. Pay $12 at the register and you’ll be provided with a plastic plate to load up as often as you like at the self-serve buffet.
