Top 10 Sydney Restaurants 2014

Looking for the best restaurants in Sydney? Here are the top ten Sydney restaurants from our 2014 Australian Restaurant Guide.

Jamaican goat curry

"Goat is the world's most consumed meat and we hardly give it a look in Australia. I adore it in so many different preparations, from South-East Asian dishes through to Italian braises, but my favourite is Jamaican curry with its heady spices," says Evans. "I see spices as nature's medicine cabinet and use them in as much of my cooking as possible. If you can't get your hands on quality goat meat (farmers' markets are a good bet or online), then feel free to substitute lamb or another protein. But if you've never had goat before, I urge you to give it a whirl."

Top 10 Melbourne Restaurants 2014

Looking for the best restaurants in Melbourne? Here's our top ten from our 2014 Australian Restaurant Guide.

Kung Pao chicken

"I'm a longtime GT subscriber and fan. My fiance is obsessed with the Kung Pao chicken from Mr Wong in Sydney. He keeps trying to replicate it every time he goes near the kitchen. The results haven't been too bad, but he isn't happy with them, which means further experimentation. Would you please ask for the recipe so we can move on to something else?" Jules Clancy, Cooma, NSW REQUEST A RECIPE To request a recipe, write to Fare Exchange, Australian Gourmet Traveller, GPO Box 4088, Sydney, NSW 2001, or email fareexchange@bauer-media.com.au. Please include the restaurant's name and address or business card, as well as your name and address.

Fast summer salads

There's nothing wrong with a simple green salad, but why stop there when you can take a couple extra minutes and make anything from a grilled chorizo with black bean and avocado salad to a lentil and asparagus salad with egg and sumac. Check out our slideshow for some of our best-ever fast salad recipes.

Great breakfast ideas - part two

44 Pupusas, Gorman House markets
Parting with these tortillas is especially tough when you know that you won't set eyes on them again for a full week. They're a specialty of the Salvadoran food stall at the Saturday morning markets at the Gorman House arts centre. Filled with refried beans, cheese or both and slathered with chilli sauce, they're a robust start to the day, perfect for chillier mornings. Gorman House Markets, Saturdays, 10am-3pm, Gorman House, Ainslie Ave, Braddon, ACT

45 The German farmer's breakfast, EU Café
The German farmer's breakfast is exactly as far from dainty as it sounds - an honest and hearty serve of roughly chopped potato, egg, ham, and other farm-fresh produce. If you're up for further European enlargement, consider crossing the Channel for the EU Café's Big Ben Breakfast. 2/4 Barker St, Griffith, ACT, (02) 6295 6915

46 Crumpets, The Chelsea
You know those factory-made round crumpets? These are nothing like that. Oval shaped, light and fluffy on top, dense and chewy on the bottom, there are two to a serve and they're beautifully partnered with a choice of organic honey or raspberry butter. Another reason to get up in the morning. The Chelsea, The Barracks, Shop 2, 5 Petrie Tce, Paddington, (07) 3367 1288

47 Natto rice bowl, Chado
It's a bit of a stretch because Chado isn't technically open for breakfast (it opens at 11am), but one person's lunchtime is another person's breakfast, and this natto rice bowl, which celebrates the mucilaginous pleasure of fermented soy beans, is a great savoury breakfast - pure umami. 134 Elizabeth St, Hobart, Tas, (03) 6231 6411

48 Assiette of roast mushrooms, Mantra on King William
The open fireplace is welcoming through winter, and locals tend to linger on Sunday mornings, browsing over newspapers and good coffee while savouring hearty breakfast plates, such as a rich mixture of roasted portobello, swiss brown, white and field mushrooms on thick slices of fig and fennel bread, topped with parmesan, rocket and walnuts. 36 King William Rd, Goodwood, SA, (08) 8377 7201

49 Har gau, Fisherman's Wharf Seafood Restaurant
Where better to seek the best prawn dumplings than at the nation's best-situated yum cha restaurant? Here, in a space replete with windows and water views atop Sydney Fish Market, you'll find har gau resembling happy little clouds packed with contradictions of lightness and density, softness and crunch. Now pass the chilli sauce. Level 1, Sydney Fish Market, Bank St, Pyrmont, (02) 9660 9888
 
50 BLT, Pearl Cafe
It's a BLT but not as you know it: in place of bacon we find sobrasada, Spain's spreadable pork salami, thickly smeared on organic bread. Where you'd normally find iceberg, there's a neat thatch of locally grown rocket splashed with EVOO and a sploosh of creamy organic quark. Chef Haidee Petersen's house-made organic green tomato pickle tops it all off. Pearl Cafe. 28 Logan Rd, Wooloongabba, Qld, (07) 3392 3300

51 Piña colada pancakes, Grub Street Eatery
Who doesn't love a breakfast dessert, especially when its coconut and pineapple flavours bring back memories of cocktail indulgences. A stack of coconut pancakes sits on a puddle of zingy and zesty lime curd with coconut ice-cream and pineapple hot from the grill. Grub Street Eatery, 440 Samford Rd, Gaythorne, Qld, (07) 3855 9580

52 Soft-boiled eggs and soldiers, The Hardware Société
It's play-time for grown-ups: two textbook soft-boiled eggs teamed with three toasted sourdough soldiers topped with an ever-changing variety of good stuff, perhaps trout tartare, or asparagus and Valdeón, or chorizo and romesco. 120 Hardware St, Melbourne, Vic, (03) 9078 5992
