At Contrabando in Sydney, the focus is on Latin American cuisine made with authentic flavours and all-natural ingredients. Whether it’s a dish influenced by the shores of Southern California or a ceviche from Peru, Contrabando’s kitchen team produces their specialties with only the finest vegetables, seafood and meats. Situated on Bent Street in the heart of the CBD, this unique restaurant is conveniently located just moments from Martin Place and Wynyard stations and is open only a limited number of hours weekly, on Monday for lunch and from Tuesday to Friday for dinner.
There’s no other place like Contrabando in Sydney. Fusing together the best dishes of Southern California, Texas, Mexico and South America, this restaurant offers guests the chance to try something that can’t be found anywhere else. You’ll find the restaurant along Bent Street in the CBD, hidden among graffiti-covered walls and two black doors. Inside, you’ll find that the dining space is sophisticated and creative, complete with a contrast of boldly coloured designs and dark shades of gray – for private hire, it simply doesn’t get much better.
Contrabando’s extensive menu includes a number of munchies, quesadillas, tacos, sharing plates and desserts, all of which are made from scratch daily. Starting off with the Truck Stop Guac served with pico de gallo and corn chips is an absolute must before deciding from heartier options like the quesadillas stuffed with suckling pig, chipotle vinaigrette and salsa chimichurri, the tacos with Wagyu beef cheek, smashed avocado, tomato and citrus salsa, or the cheeseburger tacos filled with smashed Wagyu pattie, salsa roja, jack cheddar, habanero mustard mayo and a baby lettuce coleslaw. To finish, the dulce de leche flan with peanut praline is simply divine. Booking ahead is essential for this innovative Latin American restaurant in the heart of Sydney’s CBD.
