Marrickville’s restaurant scene is a reflection of its history. The suburb is a mix of language groups, cultures and professions. The once thriving Greek community lives on in both traditional diners and modern second-gen restaurants reinventing Mediterranean cuisine.
The growing population of people from northern Vietnam is represented by bánh mì shops, bún chả eateries and casual diners presenting Sydneysiders with a different kind of Vietnamese cuisine (historically, Sydney has been home to more migrants from southern Vietnam).
Meanwhile, Marrickville’s community of artists and young creatives is encouraging a new wave of restaurants setting the agenda for Australian food and the different shapes it can take on.
