Owner Derek Puah and Executive Chef Zachary Tan have officially opened their third iteration of Sydney’s beloved Devon Cafe, moving across the bridge to North Sydney’s Greenwood Plaza. With doors swinging open today, North Shore locals should be in for a treat, seeing as the already established Surry Hills and Barangaroo cafes regularly pull out some of Sydney’s best cafe dishes, from truffle-loaded toasties to pig’s ear katsu.
The original Devon Cafe in Surry Hills has long been one of the pioneers of the city’s higher-end cafe culture and is often regarded as one of the best spots for casual dining in a suburb packed with quality options. Similarly, the much newer Barangaroo cafe has become one of the precinct’s finest, standing out along with the likes of Belle’s Hot Chicken and Ume Burger as a clear favourite.
Tan, who also handles the excellent food over at Darlinghurst’s Lucky Suzie, and his team have come up with a whole heap of new dishes for the North Sydney menu. Announced so far over on their Facebook page is the likes of Ragu alla sichuanese, a wildly experimental pasta dish with coriander tagliolini mixed through dan dan style chili mince pork, peanuts, burrata and a slow cooked egg. Also on the menu is a lovely looking buratta served with Turkish bread, Sichuan chili oil and eggplant puree.
Devon North Sydney opens from 4th January 2018, for more information head to their website HERE.
