American food is more than fried chicken, pancakes, hot dogs and burgers, but who really cares? The American-style food fad is taking over the city, but where’s the best place for a good old-fashioned American-style diner experience?
I loooove Jazz City Milk Bar (am sad that Jazz City Diner closed though!) Their sweet pies are off the charts, and it's such a cute little cafe.
Also as far as traditional American-style eating, The Dip is great too. Amazing burgers, awesome hot dogs and the hot wings OMG I could eat them all day!
I love The Dip as well! There's also an adorable diner in the beach-side suburb of Cronulla, called Old Joe's. This restaurant is full of bright colours and funky furniture, and the menu is all about re-inventing classic milk bar dishes. There's even a ping pong table and some arcade games, which means that there's always something to do!
Miss Peaches Soul Food Kitchen in Newtown is good if you are after that Southern Style fried food and a great atmosphere. The interior is all exposed brick and there are a bunch of colourful booths for you to sit in.Their signature dish is the Blackened Fish (which is fried barramundi) and in true Southern style they serve tator tots, bay bug pies and fried Catfish. There is also quite a few gluten free options.
Such as shock to find out that Jazz City closed down...sob. I love Batch Burgers & Espresso in Kirras. Mmmmm....that strawberry thick shake with a cheeseburger - heaven. Plus it's in a real milk bottle too xx
If you're feeling slightly more yuppie, Mary's bar in Newtown has AMAZING fried chicken and hearty cheeseburgers. Even higher on the chain, Hartsyard in Newtown do gourmet tarted-up soul food - it's just so darn hard to get in!
I've also had an amazing hot dog at The Soda Factory in Surry Hills - it's actually a bar, but you access it through a secret hidden door in a little hot dog shop just down from Hyde Park and Oxford St. ;)
