Palings, Sydney

This Melbourne Cup week I stumbled across a winner called Palings.

Before you start thinking of horses I will stop you there. It's not a horse it's a trendy kitchen and bar located on level one at the Ivy.


Arriving at twelve noon the day after Melbourne Cup it was quiet.

With a baby in tow the staff were very accommodating quickly finding a high chair and offering to take our order from our table.

With a not so empty tummy thanks to the Rise and Dine breakfast earlier that day I was overly excited when I saw lighter options of sandwiches, rolls and salads on the menu.

After several minutes deciding what to order we chose the Bug Roll, Pork Schnitty and Red fish curry.

Bug roll - balmain bugs, celery, carrot, corriander, daikon, mayo
Pork schnitty topped with slaw
Red fish curry with beans.
As we waited for our meals the venue filled quickly. With its ultra modern decor, hip staff and affordable menu it's no surprise this place is popular. To top it our meals didn't disappoint, each being packed with flavour.

If your after an affordable, casual and trendy city eat I suggest you give Palings a go.
