The Lanterns Pavilion in Chinatown

The Lanterns Pavilion, taking place in Haymarket from September 16th to October 1st, celebrates the Mid-Autumn Festival. With over 100 glowing lanterns, along with live music, the ongoing event offers an opportunity to immerse families in Chinatown’s vibrant atmosphere. Darling Square, filled with a variety of restaurants and bars, is buzzing! 

We love what the Lanterns Pavilion is doing for the cultural diversity and sense of community in Haymarket.

Kazando Ramen in Event Cinemas George St

Kazando Ramen, nestled within the Event Cinemas George St complex, offers distinctive flavors, such as the Yuzu Truffle Ramen and the spicy Gekikara Ramen. Whether you choose to dine alone or with a friend, it’s a perfect stop perhaps before your next movie night.

Spicy Sri Lankan Street Food in Glebe

For lovers of spicy and South Asian cuisine, a visit to “Sri Lankan Street Food” in Glebe, a suburb in Sydney’s inner-west, is a must. Their flavorful curries, when paired with a crispy hopper pancake, make for an exceptional culinary experience.

Coro·88 Burwood is a relaxed bistro and bar

Corro 88 is a hidden gem for casual comfort food opposite Burwood Park in Burwood. Catch sport games on TV, enjoy cocktails with friends, grab a coffee from Nelsons By The Park (the sibling café) and enjoy a lazy afternoon. There is comfortable seating in a neat, stylish space.
