Middle Eastern

Middle Eastern food is wholesome, light, and often comes in the form of share plates – in line with the custom of communal eating. Breads, seeds, and pulses are common on the table, and often come mixed in or dipped into olive oils and ground spices like sumac and black peppers.

Stuffed vegetables and generous cuts of lamb and mutton capture the heavier side of the menu, and sticky and highly sweet desserts polish the meal off. The further west you head in Sydney, the more densely popular and arguably more authentic the Middle Eastern cuisine you’ll find, though there are some hidden gems around the Inner West, Surry Hills and CBD.
