Sydney❜s Best Sunday Roasts
- All Ages
It might not be the most traditional of Aussie summer foods, but there's just something about a Sunday roast in the lead-up to Christmas time (or all year round, in our book) that really warms the cockles of your heart, particularly if you originally hail from the northern hemisphere.
Yorkshire puds, potatoes aplenty and slow-cooked meats dripping in gravy—there is quite literally nothing we don't love about a Sunday roast. Here are Sydney's best go-to spots for a classic roast dinner—or lunch—we aren't picky!
