Cheap Eats Review

Sydney’s love affair with laneways is consummated in this idiosyncratic bar/restaurant, hidden down the end of an empty city alley. At night it hums with a low-key after-work crowd, in their element drinking from jam jars and mingling among op-shop-style decor. The menu upstairs is French-inspired, small and lacking in adjectives but is complex in flavour. Fish, crab and peas this night is pan-fried kingfish, juicy and towering on crab-infused potato smash, dotted with peas and basil $30. But start with a share plate — the Lancashire cheddar and onion tart $17.50 will distract you from contemplating why there are more lampshades than wines by the glass. Sweets entice but the cheese board $15–$26 with subtle-tasting Fourme d’Ambert bleu and pear is the perfect conclusion.
