More about Contrabando, Sydney CBD

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 a beef patty, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles and onions on a sesame seed tortilla; the tacos with crispy pork belly, Korean hot sauce, queso fresco, and a carrot coriander slaw. Alternatively, maybe the cheeseburger spring rolls with Wagyu beef, American cheese, pickles, mustard and ketchup are more to your taste? Simply devine! Booking ahead is essential for this innovative Southern Californian street food restaurant in the heart of Sydney’s CBD.
