Now that all three of their venues across Sydney (the original Surry Hills location, North Sydney and Barangaroo) are well-established, Devon Café has never been in a stronger position. The highly influential and pioneering café, which arguably bolstered the cities offensive in its ongoing dining rivalry with Melbourne, remains one of the best and most referenced across the city. It’s a bonus that all three of their venues have slightly tweaked menus, a commitment to difference that carries over to their now traditional winter truffle menu. Each season Devon introduce a number of creative and playful truffle dishes (as with many other top venues up and down the East Coast) and this year is certainly no exception. Here we’re taking a quick look at Barangaroo’s limited edition truffle menu, which also extends to their regular everyday menu seeing as anything can be ‘pimped’ with truffles while the season lasts (I don’t even have to tell you how heavenly their signature ‘Breakfast with the Sakumas’ tastes with added truffle)....

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....

A few years ago, Surry Hills’ much awarded Devon Cafe expanded to include a spin-off a few suburbs over, gifting Waterloo Devon on Danks, an enormously popular venture that allowed for some bigger turns into the flavour-rich world of Asian fusion. As an essential brunch destination, the cafe dominated Danks street right up until it was sadly closed down earlier this year, leaving space for an expansion to the increasingly crowded Barangaroo precinct. It seems Sydney’s slick new waterfront destination couldn’t do without one of the most consistent cafes in the city, as if Belles Hot Chicken, Banksii, Ume Burger, and a 5-in-1 emporium wasn’t enough....

One of Sydney’s all-time favourite casual dining spots, Devon Café, will be expanding from the flagship in Surry Hills this October to open a new venue at Barangaroo. The very welcome news does come with a heartbreaking announcement though: the hugely popular Devon on Danks in Waterloo will be closing its doors in a couple of weeks. ... Read More | Share it now!
Chef Zachary Tan is a busy man as of late. As well as highlighting exceptional – and fun – Malaysian food at his new bar Lazy Suzie, he continues to help design new menu items for Devon Café and Devon on Danks alongside Chef Jacquie Ektoros. Now that we’ve entered the always anticipated truffle season in Australia (one of the best things about winter here), he has worked with the two wildly popular cafés to introduce two very special limited edition truffle inspired dishes, that will be on the menus up until the end of this year’s truffle season....

The team behind cult favourite Devon Café have just opened up their first bar-restaurant with Lazy Suzie, a playful fusion style venture that is located in Darlinghurst, serving up Malaysian hawker-style street food and Asian-inspired cocktails. Owners Derek Puah and Zacharay Tan (who also serves as Exec. Chef) have looked to Penang for inspiration to craft a breakfast, lunch, and dinner menu that moves away from the signature brunches of Devon Café and Devon on Danks to focus on street food in a space just big enough for 50 people....
