Hands down, seven places to get the best steak in Sydney.
They say that you can know a place more through its food. While you enjoy Sydney’s iconic sites, multicultural atmosphere, and breathtaking ocean views, make time to also enjoy its superb and delicious steaks.
It is a known fact that Australia raises some of the best beef in the world. It would be a shame not to enjoy this flavourful and juicy fare. As opposed to the smoked American steak, steaks in Australia are grilled to juicy perfection. Some restaurants allow you to choose your preferred breed for your beef, whether grass or grain-fed, cut, ageing time, and the condiments.
One bite of a well-grilled steak to change your preference for meat and beef. Pair it with a bottle of red wine, and you are sure to have a superior gastronomic experience you will always come back for.
