Sydney, New South Wales

Bar H is a bar in the Italian sense – that is, a tiny haunt in which to eat and drink well (don't go past the extensive sake list), then be on your way. The classy modern Chinese fare is consistently good and the vibe is that of a moody Asian tea house with a side of fun. Owner and Chef Hamish Ingham is a firm believer in preparing dishes to highlight the integrity of seasonally available produce, so expect quality casual dining.

The small plates menu trend takes a bite out of Melbourne's dining scene by contributing mid-priced dinners in amongst Sydney's ultra cheap versus upmarket fare. Enter former Sydney Morning Herald Young Chef of the Year, Hamish Ingham, with his eponymous Bar H in Surry Hills.

His navy and black eatery makes the most of a small space framed with large panelled windows that open up to natural light and a welcome breeze. Diners sit by the window bench, the view of the leafy street their company, whilst the kitchen is a honey pot for passers-by lured in by cooking fragrances or brewing coffee. The counter of the open kitchen doubles as the bar where afternoon visitors chat to chefs as they look over the extensive wine list. Blue velvet banquettes flanking the bar provide a low-lit intimacy whilst the open area at the front bathes in sunlight.

Bar H is ideal for smart-casual snacking where you can enjoy a bite to eat with a crisp glass of wine. Dishes are created with simple elegance, and the wine list is definitely worth experiencing alongside such delicious food.
