Smoky Cravings Parramatta
A casual eatery that boasts an array of inexpensive Filipino barbecue and street food.
August 23, 2023
For a casual pre-pay-day meal, look no further than Smoky Cravings. The authentic Filipino eatery originally started as a food truck, but the demand for its wide array of barbecued meats was so overwhelming that the team opened a restaurant in Parramatta.
Almost as impressive as the classic street food are the prices. At only $4, a skewer costs less than a regular latte or a McDonald's cheeseburger. Sort dinner for $21 with a combo meal of three skewers plus chips or adobo rice, soup and a drink. Or you could get a picnic box to feed four or more for $150 and set up in Prince Alfred Square across the road. Finish up with a colourful halo-halo or fresh buko pandan, and then do your best to burn it all off with a stroll along Parramatta River.
