Momofuku Seiobo, Sydney
How can a restaurant with no phone number, a bathroom tucked behind its scullery and views to nothing but the inside of a casino possibly top the national rankings? With a cutting-edge kitchen, a far-sighted director and an international team of talented young chefs and waiters giving it their all, that's how. No one in Australia thinks global and acts local like the Seiobo team. It's not like any other Momofuku, nor is it like anything else in the country. It's an exciting place to eat, and best of all it gives a clear sense that it's still on the up. Get it while it's hot.
