Really worth a try! Maybe one of the best choices to go for fast food in Sydney. Their crispy pork pieces over the bagette are fabulous! Quite busy at nights. It's a really small place. Popular prices.

Delicious but certainly not healthy for the heart! Gets very busy late at night at revelers stock up on food to soak up the alcohol. Must at least try the famous crackling.

I had heard about Mr Crackles and as we were in the area we decided to stop by and try out their crispy pork crackling. Their Cup of Crackling cost just $5 which I thought was pretty reasonable and there was a good amount of crackling inside. It wasn't too busy when we got here and I was served immediately.... More

Great late night spot! We got the Chilli Chips which is basically nacho chips, covered in amazing thin shredded cheese. Tiny spot but great vibe, the team there are really friendly, they recommended the sticky BBQ Pork and it TOTALLY DELIVERED! Do yourself a favour, it's delightful.

If you're a fan of pork rolls or banh mi then this place will please you and take you on to another level of goodness. Tender pieces or crispy pork topped over a baguette filled with slaw (I'm salivating just thinking about it). Flavor-wise, It's not your typical Chinese 5-spiced pork crackling. It can seem a bit pricey for what... More

Definitely overpriced. There are so many restaurants that will provide a greater variety of lunch menus with just as good quality and much better prices. The food was not bad. My son had one of the rolls which he said was nice but not worth $18. I ordered the chilli cheese chips at $10 per serve and I was not... More

Discovered this little gem on my trip to the Sydney Mardi Gras earlier this year. And I fell in love as soon as I walked in, there is possibly nothing more I love in life than port crackle and this is my euphoria every time I visit Sydney. Amazing food, if you're not worried about how many carbs go into... More

A colleague recommended this place for a quick lunch and I had to try it. I am a huge fan of anything pork belly related so this was a must. We arrived just as the restaurant opened and we were the first ones to order. Ordered the classic with a side of crispy pork belly. They were both delicious. Although,... More

Such good quality. Everything about it is great, great bread, great meat. Excellent 'post-drinks' meal but delicious any time!

Staying in Darlinghurst

Neighborhood Profile
Darlinghurst
Home of the small bar revolution in Sydney, Darlinghurst has more bars per capita than any other suburb. Themes range from American whiskey bars and 1950’s theme bars to hidden bars requiring secret passwords. Oxford Street is the "Gay Capital" of Australia, where gay and lesbian-friendly venues feature “diva shows” and dancing until the morning. Vintage lovers flock to Crown Street, and small designer boutiques can be found along Victoria and Bourke Streets. Dining in Darlinghurst is a gastronomic adventure. Food from all over the world is on the menu, from American ribs to tapas, sushi to gelato and every ethnicity in between.
