Local’s List: Top Sydney Restaurants By The Langham Chef

As a travel writer, I spend nearly 20 GB of data looking for the right places to eat at, before I seal my itinerary for any place in the world! After skimming through almost every food review website, book and crowd sourced ratings of restaurants, I have realised that the best advice comes from the locals. Consistency of a well rated eatery can be best verified with local gastronomes. Who better to consult than a local Chef!
