The New Original
Fishbowl puts a unique, healthy spin on fast food, serving up Japanese-inspired sashimi bowls. The house favourite, the O.G., combines salmon, shallots, red onion, beets and edamame, with seaweed salad, a roasted sesame dressing, tobiko and crispy shallots. Never say no to avocado.
A Beast of a Burger
This video game-themed burger joint is the perfect guilty pleasure eatery. Start with the popular Altered Beast BBQ bacon burger, then wash it down with a Strawberry Cheesecake Milkshake. Ready player one?
A Matcha Made in Heaven
Don’t be fooled by imitators. Matcha-Ya creates teas and desserts from green tea powder straight from the source in Shizuoka, Japan. While locals love the Matcha Latte, our pick has to be the Matcha Shiratama Sundae, a matcha-infused rice cake and soft serve with all the trimmings.
MARRICKVILLE PORK ROLL
Let’s Get Crackling
The menu is short and simple, but that’s just fine when we all want the same thing. Join the lunchtime queue and you’ll soon be rewarded with Vietnamese style pork rolls and crackling that have now become local legend.
BELLES HOT CHICKEN
Too Hot to Handle
The Spicy Chicken Sandwich rules the roost at Belles, especially when paired with Southern style sides like slaw and mac and cheese. Things can get very spicy here, so make sure you’ve got Belles natural wine close by.

THE SANDWICH SHOP
Keep it Fresh
After a good sanga? You’ll have plenty of quality options here. Start with the Pulled Pork, Beef Brisket or classic Reuben and don’t skimp on the house-made sauces and dressings.
I Need Gyros
This little shop has quickly earned a big reputation for the city’s best gyros. You won’t find lamb or beef — Gyradiko takes a more traditional approach, pairing tender pork gyros with tangy tzatziki and other freshly-prepared sauces.
