For the past week, I have teamed up with the Embark Mobile App to help you find some fun, food destinations around Sydney.
What is Embark?
Embark is a mobile app in Australia that gives you the best, possible commute from point A to point B. No need to use Government apps, or other apps that may be faulty due to new construction or delays. It also does more than tell you about public transport, but give you walking guides as well!
For your long commute, Embark has a long list of the worldwide, popular content for you to kill the time.
Embark is also available for iPhones and Androids.
Chur Burger - Surry Hills
What kind of list would this be without Chur Burger?! For those who aren't familiar with Chur Burger, it is an Australian cult classic with locations in Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane. The one I visited was in Sydney CBD.
Try: Grilled lamb, mint sauce, feta, red onion, and aioli burger for $12. Make it a meal with chips, and a drink for $18, or have a milkshake for an extra $2.
Thoughts: The lamb is served pink (as it should be), and was tender. Great meal, filling, and worth the price!

Brooklyn Depot - Surry Hills
My praise of Brooklyn Depot's menu cannot be stopped. As a former Social Media contractor for them, just seeing the photos of their food makes my mouth water. A new addition to the Sydney burger joints is Brooklyn Depot in Surry Hills, previously only located in Surfers Paradise.
Try: The Depot Burger which is two grass fed beef patties, double American cheese, hickory smoked bacon,grilled pineapple, oak leaf lettuce, tomato, Depot special sauce

Wild Pear Cafe - Dural
The Wild Pear Cafe in Dural is a fantastic place to eat some well-made desserts. The restaurant sits on top of a cliff, overlooking the beautiful North-Western Sydney wildlife. The interior is quite homely, and the balcony seating is a marvel every visit.
Try: Sugar ‘N’ Spice French Toast with rhubarb, fresh strawberries, orange blossom, pistachios & cream. It is sweet, but not overbearingly, and has rich additions like rhubarb to give it a lighthearted kick.
