Do you ever wish you could recreate your favourite dish from your favourite restaurant? Maybe its disappeared from the menu, maybe youve moved and its not close by anymore, or maybe youd rather enjoy that delicious dish on the couch in your PJs watching Netflix. Weve all been there. Heres our list of restaurants so good someone offered them a book deal.

 

Kepos Street Kitchen

On a quiet corner in the backstreets of Waterloo youll find Kepos Street Kitchen. Once a workers cottage, this restaurant has a friendly vibe and delicious food. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner the dishes include everything from the Mediterranean equivalent of the big breakfast (falafel, hummus, labneh, soft boiled egg, tomato salad and schiacciata bread) to kingfish with sumac, freekeh, almonds and pickled eschalot. Just like the restaurant, the endearingly titled cookbook Falafel For Breakfast brings together the best of the Middle East into our homes.

Spice Temple

Neil Perry has a number of restaurants and cookbooks under his belt everything from the finest of fine dining to burgers. Spice Temple is a bit special though. Described as a modern Chinese restaurant that focuses on the lesser known regional cuisines, we cant wait to try making the yellow noodles with braised brisket, chilli and Sichuan pepper or the pork dumplings ourselves.

Biota Dining

It may be a bit of a drive to Biota in the Southern Highlands, but its certainly worth it. And bring on the challenge of recreating some of the exquisite dishes at home. It will be our own personal Masterchef challenge. Using only local ingredients (some from their own gardens) chef James Viles creates dishes like legumes served with their flowers and fresh cheese. If youre really inspired, sign up for one of their regular workshops.

18 Kangaloon Rd, Bowral NSW 2576 | (02) 4862 2005

 

 

China Doll

China Doll has a rather glamorous reputation. Right on the water in Woolloomooloo, chef Frank Shek is bringing a refined modern twist to Chinese cuisine. We love dishes like tea-smoked duck with tamarind and plum sauce, but we really love the desserts which include dishes like coconut sago pudding with passionfruit and lemongrass panna cotta with poached cumquats and ginger crumble.
