A three-minute walk from the Town Hall, this three-storey eatery bosts a fit out as eclectic as the menu.
June 10, 2022
Looking for somewhere to sample share plates with friends or grab a quick bite before a Town Hall show? Tucked away down one of Sydney's hidden CBD laneways is the recently opened Galli Galli, a vibrant eatery slinging delicious street eats and colourful cocktails.
A great spot to head with a crowd, this Asian-fusion eatery is mammoth, spanning three storeys. Those just popping in for a drink can park up at the downstairs bar, while those looking for a sit-down meal can dine on the second level — and enjoy some live tunes while they eat.
The menu is just as eclectic as the interior fit out: it boasts everything from cheesy chilli chips ($15.90), to Tomyum chicken ($19.90) — or maybe you might opt for a classic Aussie fish'n'chips ($18.80). If you're a spice fan, you'll probably want to opt for Galli Galli's 'devil wings' which are tossed with house chilli and garlic sauce, or the Shya Phalle ($12.90), is a Tibetan puff pastry with chicken mince, green chutney and chilli oil.
If you like your drinks on the sweet side, opt for one of the extremely aesthetic cocktails they're shaking down at the bar: the Vivaton ($20) is a heady mix of gin, elderflower, cucumber, mint and pepper, while the To Celebrate combines vodka, lychee liquor and passionfruit. For pudding, you might opt for the Toblerone cocktail ($20) which is packed with the good things: Baileys, Frangelico, honey — and ice cream and chocolate.
But it's the opening deal that's sure to get punters through the doors in droves: until June 18, Galli Galli is serving up its famous Nepalese dumplings for just $1 apiece. Wash it down with a $6 beer during happy hour between 4pm-7pm.
And yes, it's a three-minute walk (approx) to the Town Hall, making it the perfect stop for a quick pre-show bite — especially if you're running late to make curtain.
