East London Paddington Is The Sichuan Chinese Restaurant You Need To Visit
There’s a local’s favourite pub in Paddington called the East London hotel. It’s on a quiet street corner, relatively unassuming and charmingly rustic in appearance.
Walk in, take a turn around the room before heading upstairs and you find the East London restaurant.
Despite what the name would suggest, it’s not English pub fare, it’s a play on words: ‘East’ referring to Asia, ‘London’ referring to the fact it’s in a pub. Put the two together and you have one of the best Sichuan Chinese restaurants in the East of Sydney.
It’s comfortable, very refined; rustic, yet sophisticated and the food cannot be faulted.
From sashimi, to wantons, to pickled chilli garnished fish, rice and everything in-between, the story of the degustation-like menu is better told through images.
In any case a must-visit and in all cases you must try everything on the menu.
Find the East London at 85 Underwood Street, Paddington. See more at their website.
