The Friday Delicious, hosted by Time Out's Chief Food and Drink Editor Myffy Rigby, is broadcast every Friday afternoon between 4.30-5pm on FBi 94.5. But because we love you, and because not everyone is glued to the wireless (shame on you!) we're giving it to you in (Monday) delicious print. Now go out and get listening to the radio, you scamps.
We’re not going to use the term pop up. We won’t say guerrilla dining. Let’s call it a collaboration of talented people making delicious things in exciting places. OK?
The team behind Pin Bone is probably one of the most forward thinking, natural and intuitive group of cooks around at the moment. Pin Bone is chefs Mike Eggert (who you may or may not recognise from Duke, and before that Billy Kwong and goes by the Twitter handle @bigguymikeegg) and Jemma Whiteman (sous chef at Billy Kwong for years, then Berta and Three Blue Ducks – from all reports she make a hell of a choc chip cookie). Mike’s sister Berri (she’s managed pretty much everywhere you care to name around Sydney including Duke, Bar at the End of the Wharf and Moncur Terrace) runs the front of house. They were last seen making some of the best sandwiches in the universe at Rootstock – the natural wine fair every man and his dog was at last weekend. Their MO is tasty, interesting food in fun environs for not too much cash. Find out what they’re up to by following them on Twitter @pin_bone or take a look at their Facebook page.
We can’t give you too much detail here, because we don’t want anyone getting into trouble - but we can tell you the menu is incredible. Join a bunch of strangers at a huge communal table, stylishly lit with desk lamps (perfect for Instagram snaps) and listen to Johnny Cash while you drink a Young Henry’s long neck.
Not everybody is taking over other people’s kitchens or redoing old warehouse spaces. ex Bird Cow Fish owner/head chef Alex Herbert has hit the Eveleigh market instead, selling croques madame (that’s a super hectic pan fried ham and cheese toastie, in case you’re curious. Madames have a fried egg on top - pervy). She’s also doing amazing pastries and sandwiches, in case a fried sandwich sends you into hyper-drive first thing in the morning. Catch her every Saturday from early in the morning until she runs out of food. While you’re there you might check out the breakfast dumplings at Kylie Kwong’s stall, too.
