Hemant Dadlani's Recommendations

Restaurants:
Favourite international restaurant at Al-Amar
I go to Al-Amar, Neutral Bay for good honest Lebanese food. I highly recommend the Spicy Quail.
Best cafe at Cabrito Coffee Traders
Our neighbours Cabrito Coffee Traders, Circular Quay is where I go for a cup of joe.
Late night dining at Faheem Fast Food
Faheem Fast Food, Enmore is where I go to get my late night fix of spicy food. I was introduced to this place by Customs House Bar Manager, Mirza Baig. The restaurant looks and operates like a cafeteria but I guarantee it has some of the best Indian and Pakistani food around and their spice blends are out of this world. The Haleem and Lamb Korma is my personal favourite.
Special occasion at Cafe Paci
Café Paci, Darlinghurst is my favourite restaurant to celebrate a special occasion. Cafe Paci is a pop up restaurant (open until January 2015) run by my friend Chef Pasi Petanen. Finnish born Petanen was Head Chef at three hatted restaurant Marque before venturing out on his own for the first time to open Cafe Paci.
Best kept secret at Customs House Bar
The best kept secret in Sydney is our Customs House Bar, located in the heart of the CBD opposite Macquarie Place Park of course.
