Take your tastebuds on tour as we wrap up the best winter bites, right at your doorstep.
When the temperature dips, there’s nothing like a bit of comfort food to keep you from feeling the cold. The kind of food that’s not just fuel, but is there to be savoured and enjoyed by your mind, body and soul.
We’ve searched the corners of the globe to uncover the very best of winter soul food – comforting, cosy, hearty and wholesome – and best of all, we’ve made sure it’s available for you right here in the heart of Sydney at MLC Centre.
For a tasty treat that’s fit for a king, check out the Crispy Pork Pad Prig King ($14.90) from Stir Crazy Thai . Just when you thought crispy pork couldn’t get any better, it comes with a hit of chilli to put a flush in your cheeks, and refreshing Kaffir lime to give it a zesty punch.
Or how about a Wood-fired Shish in a box ($14.95) or wrap ($11.95) from Eat Istanbul to warm your winter bones? Available in chicken or lamb with your choice of sides, including garden salad, Istanbul-style rice, chips, tabouli, red cabbage or cracked wheat bulgur, it’s simple and simply delicious.
You can’t go past a classic fish and chips, but for some extra bite check out the Grilled Tandoori Yellowfin Tuna ($14.90) from Costi's. Also served with a garden salad and your choice of
chips or rice, it’s an old favourite with a modern twist.
Or, if tradition is more your palate this season, nothing says “winter warmer” quite like a curry. For something a bit special, try a Chana Bhatura ($10.90) from Chachu's. This super-popular Indian Street Food speciality is a rare find in Sydney. Traditional comfort food that’s made to be enjoyed in the colder months, it comes with two bhatura breads (fried, puffy flatbread), served with chana masala (lightly spiced chickpea curry), mango pickle and pickled onions on the side. Yum!
