On 20 March 2015, a group of food bloggers and media were treated to a degustation lunch at Wintergarden – a food-court and retail haven in Sydney’s CBD. This upmarket food court not only offers the city’s tastiest treats, but services and retailers to save you rushing around during your work day. The Wintergarden is open now so get down and explore this glasshouse of food and greenery as Sydney begins to cool down.
The Wintergarden houses nine food tenants, serving everything from sushi to slow-cooked lamb, as well a few other residents designed to make your life easier. There’s a dry cleaner, and shoe repairer, a newsagent and naturally – a barber.
Chur Express, one of Wintergarden’s most popular food vendor, makes burgers that are consistently voted one of Sydney’s best. Chur Express sold over a massive 350 burgers on their first day of trading! Try a laksa from CBD Noodles – its co-proprietor Seong was the first man to bring this town’s favourite soup to Sydney over 30 years ago! Japanese food vendor Sushi Hub bring you the freshest in traditional sashimi and salads, bento boxes, maki rolls, Nigiri and soup.
A wintergarden wouldn’t be complete without fresh fruit and vegetables. And that’s exactly what Top Juice provide; made-to-order green drinks, nutritional juices, smoothies and protein shakes. Indulgent yoghurt and chocolate dipped strawberries are also available for the almost-guilt-free treat!
For a taste of Central America, Los Vida offers the best of fresh and authentic Mexican food. For a caffeine hit Crema at the Garden coffees will awaken the senses. They also have sweet and savoury treats to tantalise your taste buds. Named after the oldest thoroughfare on Manhattan Island that connected the farmlands to the heart of the city, Bowery Lane offers homely, seasonal food amidst a New York style cocktail bar and diner.
Artisan bread-makers Sonoma supply Soul Origin with their scrumptious baguettes. Buy one of their fresh salads for a healthy lunch. The Wintergarden Deli also sells wild salads and rustic frittatas. Not to mention their famous Nutella frappe (pictured).
