i'm coming to sydney for about a week with my partner and we're skimping on accommodation so that we can eat eat eat!

where are your favorite places to go, it doesn't have to be cheap or too fancy - or too expensive, but places that we just can't miss? something memorable?
if we were your best friends, where would you take us?

we pretty much eat every and anything... :)
any advice is greatly appreciated!

    Spice I Am - 90 Wentworth Ave, Surry Hills, excellent Thai restaurant with no bookings policy and incredibly popular so it's usually a good idea to turn up and take your place in the queue before it opens at 6 pm.
    There is also a Spice I Am in Darlinghurst, which does take reservations I haven't been to it so I don't know how it compares.

        In my neighbourhood in Darlinghurst there is a great range of some of the best restaurants in Sydney. Have outlined these in the link below, with Omerta, a new restaurant, my current fave:

        If you're heading to Bondi, a great stop for international visitors, there's a great range of eating options, with Seans Panorama being something pretty special:
