Hartsyard brings all the boys to the yard! Damn right….

Newtown, Sydney

Yoooooooooo second time in Hartsyard. The first time was on 2015 and 2nd time well…. now…

Still amazing!!! Tip: always book online. Walk ins are available however you may have to wait. Although if there are spaces on the bar you may also be able to eat there.

So I came here with work mates to celebrate my birthday and it was so worth it! The down side was pretty much the cost of the bill other than that service was awesome and food was ridiculously satisfying.

For drinks we ordered the house creaming soda. When it came out it looks like milk, all white and with a cherry on the top. It tastes like creamy milk at first and no fizz. But… you had to mix it up to get it all fizzed up. Dang what a bunch of rookies we were. 3 out of 5.

To open up we had the chicken skin. Oh my how much I love chicken skin!!! It was crunchy and flavoring was just right with the buffalo chilli sauce!! Put some more people! Gives you a kick in the mouth. And its a good type of kick. Ha! 4 out of 5.

The 2nd dish we had the pumpkin dumplings. We just had to try this one. It was different and had good reviews. It came out beautifully presented with different ingredients on it. It was a subtle pumpkin taste with cheese and sauce. It’s a light dish that has no overpowering ingredients. Good to start off. I would say it’s a 2.5 out of 5 dish.

The third dish, we had the pulled pork. Hmmm my favourite dish of the night. The pulled pork served in a rectangle cube. With glazed bacon at the top and Apple with pork crackles on the side! Yummmmm. Pulled pork were soft however it was a bit dry this time round. Regardless it was amazing. Perfectly flavoured and soft. The bacon with the glaze was just amazing. Chewy and filled with the fatty flavour that we all love. I wished the glaze was all over the top of the pork. That would have made it a 5 out of 5. The Apple and crackling pork were a good side partner in crime. Just something fun to munch on. The cream (I think it was sour cream) made the taste of the pork subtle if you want it lighter.

The fourth dish, we had lamb ribs. Big ass dish with 4 pieces.. just the way I like it. It was smoking hot and looks crunchy. I love the skin tough. It was covered with brown sugar I believe and man, it was awesome!! Remember to lick it all around just because you can. It was moist under that skin as well and I devoured it. Juicy, crispy, crunchy, meaty. Perfect meat! 4 out of 5.

This time round, no dessert as we had it last time. The soft serves are to die for BTW!!! I mean we would love to if our stomach were bigger than our eyes. Instead we went to Hakiki Turkish Gelato. Overall I love this place. I have to say it’s one of my favourite American restaurant. Don’t forget to try the poutine and fried chicken. One of the best as well!

Hakiki Turkish Gelato

Newtown, Sydney

Hmmm….. gelatos are one of my favourite desserts in the whole chain of dessert universe. This place is pretty cool. It actually feels like you are in Turkey while in Sydney. With Turkish beats and music in the background and decorations across the room. They serve tea and coffee traditionally in Turkish cups. Prices are reasonable.

So what I’ve noticed with the gelatos are the unique flavours. You will never find them anywhere else. I had the melon and feta cheese and Turkish delight. Yooooooooo legit… Turkish delight actually tastes like Turkish delight. Imagine creamy milky sticky Turkish delight in a gelato format. If you love Turkish delight this would blow your mind! The melon and feta was amazing as well. The melon flavour bursts in your mouth and the small pieces of feta tastes like jelly. Haha. It just works!! But of course you won’t really taste the cheese. Check it out if you are in Newtown and bored of Messina! Sorry Messina.

So I went here not realising that the signature burger was not on sale. Make sure you check their instagram before going as you may get disappointed as they only sell one burger on the night. I mean all the others are good but if you want the best from this food truck get this one. The truffle mayo is the secret sauce. Wonderfully made secret for the whole world to taste.. maybe just Sydney actually. Don’t be fooled by being just a food truck. When you take that first bite it will keep making you want more and more and more. Juicy, melting perfection of all the ingredients… however as I said earlier… it’s the sauce that gets you! It ain’t no normal sauce…  oily mayo type of aoli sauce. It doesn’t taste heavy, it tastes light so you can keep going and going. Wow. You won’t regret it.

Don’t be fooled by the simplicity of the burger. Simple yet perfect. I’m actually quite surprised by this burger. I mean if you read the ingredients in the menu nothing kinda stands out. Just simple ingredients, mixed perfectly and cooked wonderfully. The milk buns tops it off. Medium rare beef pattie with the right amount of sauce. Not too dry not too soggy. Melted cheese really melts in your mouth. Juicy with the first bite. Juicy with the second bite. You just can’t get enough of this burger. P.s put some Siracha sauce on it for an extra kick. Hmmm…. just do it.

My oh my… legit number one in sydney. Why? Let me tell you why. I’m gonna keep it simple, short and sweet. First of all, the meat, medium rare and juicy. When you take that first bite it literally just melts in your mouth. You can taste the smokiness which is something that I dig. The bacon. What a pig. Chewy and glazed with maple syrup. Ain’t no traditional bacon taste. The sweetness is to die for. The poutine. I have no idea what it was but dayummmmmmmmm it’s so good! So apparently its fries mixed with cheese curds topped with gravy. I have no idea how to make it but I’m gonna find out. Genius! It’s like having fries in your burger. Kill 2 birds with one stone. The whole flavour in your mouth just works so well together. Please try it! I’m begging you.
