Top 5 places for ice cream in Sydney

Who doesn’t love ice-cream? With the current soaring temperatures in Sydney at the moment, ice-cream is especially needed in our lives haha! But, why have regular ice-cream when you can have out of the ordinary, fancy ice-cream? We’ve done the hard work for you and found some of the best spots to find this treat in Sydney.

Heet Tea

We can’t leave out our bubble tea lovers when it comes to ice cream choices. Heet Tea in Burwood, is the place to be to find soft-serve milk tea flavoured ice cream! Amazing, I know and it is as good as you expected, especially with the added pearls inside. I dream of one of these opening closer to my house to I can have it more often.

Pimp my Chimney

If food trucks are more your style then Pimp my Chimney, may be your calling. They travel around to different locations serving ice cream in cones made of doughnut. It is actually delicious and you look forward to eating the cone instead of just the ice cream! I just recommend you eat it quick before the warm cone melts the ice cream all over you.

Cafe Crop, Stratfield

What about Korean ice cream? You may have come across the name Bingsu, which is a Korean ice cream that comes in many flavours. Cafe Crop sells this near Strathefield Station. My personal favourite is the melon flavoured Bingsu, it also has real melon instead as well. All there servings are for 2 or more so I suggest you bring a friend.

Duo Duo

Another food truck to add to our list of best ice cream places in Sydney is Duo Duo as we couldn’t leave deep fried ice cream off the list. They move around a lot, but you can generally find them in the inner west. They usually sell 2 flavours of ice cream at a time, the two times we have been, they have had different flavours. I guess that gives you more reason to keep going back for more haha!

Cow and the Moon

This place definitely wins the contestant for best range of flavours. It is easy to get overwhelmed by your choices here, but that isn’t a bad thing when it comes to ice cream. Every flavour is beautifully presented. They have your normal every day flavours as well as a few unique ones. Every time we go we try a different one (you’ve got the try them all haha)

Enjoy your ice cream adventures and make sure to not get a brain freeze!

New Spot: PeanutButterLove Dessert Bar

As Peanut Butter lovers, we are excited for Market Lane Manly’s newest edition PeanutButterLove Dessert Bar. As would any other Peanut Butter lover right? The best part is, it was the idea of fitness fanatics and designed to be healthy! So if you want a guilt-free dessert, this may be the right place for you.

For all our friends that are gluten free, dairy free, sugar free, paleo, vegan, (I think I mentioned them all) the majority of the menu is made for them. Some of their signature and permanent menu items include:

1. Triple Decker

As the name suggests this 3 layer slice, that is full of peanut butter has definitely got your sweet tooth covered. Oh and its healthy and did I mention full of peanut butter?

2. Pineapple Express

For our Hawaiian… or pineapple lovers, there is a healthy option for you too. Pineapple may not belong on pizza but it belongs with peanut butter haha. It is the perfect summer snack to have especially when you are having a sweet tooth for fruit.

3. The Pim and Pams

Are you craving a Tim Tam, but a healthy version? Well this is similar and has rocky road vegan ice cream inside and includes peanut butter of course! I think this is the option I would pick from the menu. Yum!

Food choices in Darling Square, Sydney

I like to pick where I am going to eat before I go somewhere. Sometimes I even pick what I’m going to eat off the menu haha! Here is a list of the food choices you have in Sydney’s new Darling Square.

1.Pasta Wafu

Pasta with a twist! If you like Japanese food, this one may be for you. It’s Japanese inspired pasta, like Miso Bolognese. All the dishes look really interesting and the few I tried were delicious. Serving sizes are a little on the small side so I would recommend you get some sides with it.

2.Saga Lyte

Now if you are feeling more like bakery food at Darling Square, Saga Lyte is the place for you. The cakes and large pies with catch your eye as you walk past this place. They even have a classic Aussie meat pie, if that is what you are craving.

You have 24 hrs in Sydney’s CBD!? Where do you eat?

The stress of finding the best places to eat in Sydney are hard enough when you live here, but when you are visiting for 24 hours, it’s a bit more of a traumatic process. We will save you the hassle and let you know from our experience which Sydney food we would eat if we only had 24 hours in Sydney’s CBD.

1. Breakfast/Morning Tea Food

  • You can’t start the day off without a meal and we wouldn’t go past The Tea Cosy, located in The Rocks. It’s basically the best tea and scones we’ve found in town. There are over 30 teas to pick from, ranging from your basics to some interesting I’ve never seen before but they all sound delicious! The scones are served fresh every day. There are also a variety to pick from, including sweet and savoury options (we love the cheddar scone with butter). They also have a large selection of jams including: Strawberry, Triple Berry, Pear & Vanilla, Fig & Ginger and they sometimes have special ones too!

Where can you find them? 7 Atherden St, The Rocks NSW 2000
When are they open? Mon – Fri, 10 am – 4 pm or Sat – Sun, 9.30 am – 5 pm

2. Lunch Food

I’m not sure about you, but I love noodles, hence why I have chosen Biang Biang as my next meal of your 24 hours in Sydney’s CBD. This place is hidden in a little alley in Chinatown, but is the perfect spot to relax away from the crowds. You can go for their classic Biang Biang Noodles with Chilli Oil if you can handle the spice or the Biang Biang Noodles with Beef if you like it medium. Otherwise there are more plain versions with stewed pork or minced meat and tomato. The meals are delicious and filling, especially if you love spicy food!

Where can you find them? Shop 39/1 Dixon St, Haymarket NSW 2000
When are they open? 12-10pm Mon-Sun

3. Dinner Food

Now to finish off the day with some dinner, there are so many trendy places to pick in the CBD. But I like one hidden underground at the Regents Place – Assembly Bar. It’s basically a bar and restaurant in one and the food is delicious! Name any pizza or pasta and they have it – my personal favourite is the Lamb Ragu. They also have vegan options and vegan cheese that can be added to any meal which is great! Oh and don’t forget the cocktail menu, its a hard choice which one to pick. They do have a chart to let you know which ones are sour or sweet which I love!!

Where can you find them? 488 Kent St, Sydney NSW 2000
When are they open? 12pm-12am Tues-Fri or 4pm-12pm Sat or 12pm-10 Mon-Sun
