Sydney CBD Lunchtime Chowhounding

So, after one day in my job, I need some lunchtime hints, because I will have to leave the country if I have another meal as insipid as the one I had in Australia Square today.

I noticed a food hall on Hunter, at Wynyard Station I believe, with lots of Asian food places upstairs. There was pho, sushi and salads (and a branch of Michel's patisserie) Can anyone recommend anywhere in here?

Am also keen to hear about good places for sushi rolls, salads, soup and sandwiches. I tend to just run out for lunch and eat at my desk so takeaway options are preferred to eat in, although they're welcome too.

Any ideas?

  1. Lots of good little places under the MLC centre.

    1. Why not check out Red Mango Patisserie that just opened on the corner of Hunter & Castlereagh not far from Wynyard Station. Don’t be fooled by the name. It is a very attractive place with an amazing range of goodies too numerous to name. They do everything but sushi. Fresh salads, yoghurts, homemade soups & sandwiches. They only have a few tables so most of their business is take away.

      1. For super sized sandwiches (that are quite tasty - although if you want less bread, get the wraps) - there is a little shop/alleyway downstairs on Bridge St (there is a flight centre there, just a bit up from the ASX towards George St.

        Sushi - I like the place in Wynyard station called Megumi (could just be the amount of japanese mayo they put in... mmm) - otherwise the Sushi place on George St near Darrell Lea is great.
