A feast of flavours
For a once-a-year food binge, there’s no better place than the Sydney Royal Easter Show. Iconic Show food stalls colour the grounds across the Show selling their range of tasty treats, which often come on a stick, in a cone or between buns.
The stalls along Showground Road and the Channel 9 Grand Parade take things to whole new level when it comes to one-handed food handling.
If it’s traditional Show food that takes your fancy, you can’t go past a Dagwood Dog. It’s an interesting taste experience, to say the least. It’s a sausage coated in batter, deep fried and impaled on a stick. They’re best eaten with tomato sauce oozing off.
Rivalling the Dagwood Dog in recent years has been popular treats Cheese on a Stick, Chip on a Stick and debuting at this year’s Show, Pizza in a Cone. To wash these treats down, fresh lemonade is the ultimate liquid refresher.
But it’s not all about calorie-laden food at the Show. In fact, there’s an abundance of fresh produce and gourmet offerings. New outlet, Café NSW, features locally sourced produce and Sydney Royal award-winning products. There’s luxury aplenty with char-grilled king prawns, Hunter Valley cheeses and fresh oysters to delight the Show crowds.
For the freshest produce on site, head over to the Woolworths Fresh Food Dome and walk up to the gorgeous District Exhibits. The Exhibits slice up their finest fruit every morning and sell it to the general public at a few bucks a bowl. It’s healthy, cheap and truly tasty.
