It’s no secret Marrickville is the coolest place on earth (seriously, look it up) but, somehow we’re still managing to find hole-in-the-wall hotspots that haven’t yet been taken over by the general public. Baba’s Place is definitely one of these. Located just off the beaten track in a warehouse that reeks of rustic charm, this Sydney restaurant is unlike any other, but that’s precisely the point. It’s a bit of a mish-mash of different cuisines, so while it’s probably the only spot on this list that isn’t strictly Greek food, you can expect to find some family favourites here, along with Lebanese and Macedonian delights that are seriously impressive. According to owners Alex Kelly and Jean Paul El Tom, the whole idea of Baba’s Place is to celebrate the uniting power of food, which has helped to bridge so many cultural divides, particularly in Western Sydney.
