Foodies flock to Taste of Sydney

This year saw one of the most successful Taste of Sydney festivals in the event's history, drawing over 25,000 foodies to the four-day event.

More than 16 of Sydney’s leading restaurants, along with over 100 gourmet food and wine producers, descended onto Centennial Parklands from 13-16th March.  

Sydneysiders flocked to the festival, with Friday night serving up a record 41,774 dishes, making it the largest session at Taste of Sydney to date.

Guests sampled food from some of the best restaurants in the city, including Chow Bar & Eating House, Chur Burger, Rojo Rocket and Porte√±o.  

Chui Lee of Chow Bar & Eating House took the title of Best in Taste with his ‘Beggars Chicken’ dish. A panel of impressive critics judged the competition, including Australian Gourmet Traveller’s Pat Nourse and Lisa Featherby, food media personality Lyndey Milan, Time Out Sydney’s Myffy Rigby and Broadsheet’s Sophie McComas. 

This year Icon Park was launched, giving guests the one-in-a-lifetime opportunity to vote for their favourite dish from 6 restaurant newcomers; the restaurants all battling it out to score their own restaurant in East Sydney.  

Taste Festivals heads to Perth for the inaugural Taste of Perth, taking place in the scenic surrounds of Langley Park for the first time from 2-4 May 2014.
