travel just a few blocks and go to Faheem's Fast Food in enmore. pakistani. try the haleem and biryani
also nearby in newtown is a vietnamese place called Thanh Binh with really great paper wraps and also had a sort of beef stew that escapes me.
for coffee dont miss compos also in the neighborhood. check out the double ristretto, its strong.
check out the food guide by the food people i think from some tv station in sydney (the name escapes me, something like sms, i dont think what im talking about is the good food guide by the smh). its great and is organized by neighborhood and cuisine. it never failed me for an interesting recommendation. ill get back to you on what its called exactly.
