Best Value … Sun’s Burmese Kitchen, Blacktown. Photo: Fiona Morris

Sun’s Burmese Kitchen … This sleepy suburban restaurant sees our under $30 budget and laughs at it. Serves are generous and the priciest dish is $10. The best bit? The authentic Burmese food packs a serious flavour punch. Photo: Fiona Morris

Daily Life Hall of Fame … Paul’s Famous Hamburgers, Sylvania. Photo: Fiona Morris

As Sydney gets increasingly burger crazy, it seems timely to tip our hats to Paul’s. It’s hardly changed since opening in 1957 and is powering on, serving up simple, satisfying burgers to a crowd that’s as eager as ever. Photo: Fiona Morris

Sustainable Practice Champ … Cornersmith, Marrickville. Photo: Sasha Woolley

Sustainability remains the driving force at this cafe and its spin-off ‘picklery’. The menu is focused on house-made seasonal fare and local produce, including customer-supplied citrus and honey from rooftop hives. Photo: Edwina Pickles

Best Breakfast … Efendy in Balmain. Photo: Supplied

Efendy got a little more ‘everyman’ last year, adding a more affordable, casual mezze bar area. The highlight is the Sunday morning Van-style breakfast – a $29-a-head Turkish brekkie bounty. Photo: Brianne Makin

Best Vegetarian … The Veggie Patch Van, on the move.

Have veg, will travel. One of Sydney’s original food trucks, the Veggie Patch Van is still attracting followers (literally and on social media) with its vibrant burgers and sides – all veg, all good.

Best Bar Food … Mary’s, Newtown. Photo: Sahlan Hayes

The combination of craft beers, organic wines and champagne aplenty, a rowdy, buzzing atmosphere and seriously good burgers makes Mary’s tough to turn down. Just ask the keen queue of punters. Photo: Sahlan Hayes

Best Family Friendly … Umi Sushi & Udon, Darling Harbour. Photo: Wolter Peeters
