Newtown offers an exciting choice of restaurants to suit all budgets and tastes. simply go for a walk along King Street and take your pick!
If you like sushi Japone on the southern end of King St near the Newtown Social Club is must try.
Many of the best eateries in Newtown are situated along King Street. When I stayed in Newtown I had a fantastic pizza at Gigi's http://www.gigipizzeria.com.au/, incredible soul food at Miss Peaches http://www.misspeaches.com.au/menu/, phenomenal Pad Se Ew at Thai Pothong http://www.thaipothong.com.au/newtown and an unforgettable cronut for breakfast at Brewtown Newtown http://www.brewtownnewtown.com/.
There's also a Lentil as Anything on King Street for a feel good hot vegetarian meal that gives back to the community. The place is staffed by volunteers and paid refugees who gain valuable hospitality skills and experience. They use a 'pay what you feel the meal was worth' system http://lentilasanything.com/.
So many great places to choose from. Fantastic Vietnamese at Than Binh, delicious tapas at Bloodwood, great sushi at Sushi Train, just to name a few. Enjoy dining your way from one end of King St to the other.
