Solo dining in Sydney? Here is where to go!

Are you a Sydney-sider wanting to eat out but you’re all alone? Or are you on the trip to Sydney be yourself and want to eat out? Well, not to fear, there are plenty of places to eat without feeling awkward that you are alone. You want to avoid quiet places or places like yum cha where it is probably best to have a companion. Or buffets, because who is going to mind the table haha? So, here is our list of where we would eat if we were solo dining in Sydney.

1. Sushi Rio

We personally can’t think of a better option than a sushi train. There are no tables and everyone is sitting along a bench facing the train, nothing awkward about that right? You can casually pick the options you want off the sushi train without anyone noticing you are all alone. Sushi Rio would be our pick if you are in the Sydney CBD. They have a lot of options and it is super fresh!

Where can you find them: Shop 7/339A Sussex St, Sydney (you can also find them in Westfield Sydney and Bondi)
When are they open: Mon-Sun 12pm-10pm but open till 11pm on Fri-Sat

2. Jimmy’s Recipe

Next on our list of options for solo dining in Sydney is Jimmy’s Recipe. During the week at lunch time this place is super busy. You order at the counter and your food is generally ready within the minute, so there is no awkward waiting around. Then you are off to find a table, it is so busy and fast paced in there, that no one will notice you are alone. Plus there are usually quite a few solo diners on their lunch break from work. We always get the Laksa from here, it’s the best!

Where can you find them: Ground Floor/500 George St, Sydney
When are they open: Sat-Sun 11am-3pm Mon-Tues 10am-6pm Wed 10am-7pm Thurs 10am-9pm and Fri 10am-8pm

3. Mister Gee Burger Truck

Last but not least, for our solo dining options in Sydney we had to add a burger truck. There is nothing awkward about ordering from these and taking a seat in a park and enjoying your meal. We picked Mister Gee Burger Truck and their burgers never disappointed. Oh and the loaded fries are amazing too! The good thing about food trucks in general is that they move around so you are bound to find one near you.

Where can you find them: Check their Instagram, they move around to different locations (this week they are at 16 George St, North Strathfield)
When are they open: Depends on where they are

The best of Sydney food trucks and where to find them

Where do I start! I love food trucks, I find they offer unique food options in convenient locations. Many of them move around so you just need to wait until they come to your area to give them a try! We’ve tested many of them out as food bloggers and we’ve made a list of our favourite Sydney food trucks below.

1.Duo Duo Icecream Food Truck

Lets start with dessert – Duo Duo icecream is to die for! It’s basically deep fried icecream on steroids with unique flavours and delicious toppings. We can’t stop going back for more. We find they are usually in Dulwich Hill, Strathfield, Burwood or Blacktown. They always post on their instagram where you can find them!

2.Bianco Group Food Truck

I’m always craving a good pasta, so of course we are going to try Bianco Group’s food truck. We found these guys at the Sydney Royal Easter Show! We tried the Gnocchi and Spaghetti Carbonara and topped them with a heap of parmesan. They only seem to do the food truck at the easter show but they have a restaurant in Brighton-Le-Sands.

3.Greek Street Food Truck

Other than Italian pasta, our other weak spot in greek food… especially feta. Our next top food truck pick is the Greek Street food truck and their Greek feta fries. You can’t go back to normal fries after you have tried these haha! They seem to move around to major events like the Sydney Royal Easter Show, Splendor in the Grass and more!

4.Happy Ending Burger Food Truck

These guys are rare to find as a food truck, other than their burger shop they turned up to the Sydney Burger Expo this year. To us, they were the best burgers at the expo. Only downside is you may only find them as a food truck once a year.

5.Pimp My Chimney Food Truck

We started on a high of dessert so lets finish on a high of dessert. Pimp My Chimney are basically a hot doughnut cone filled with soft serve! The good thing about these guys is that they are always popping in and out of suburbs all over Sydney. You are bound to run into them eventually!

We hope our list of our favourite Sydney food trucks has helped you pick one to eat at this weekend!
