So last Friday I stopped by The Carter Sydney to test out their menu and see why people are obsessing over this newest addition to Sydney.

Country and City: Sydney, Australia
Name of Destination: The Carter Sydney,
Address: 16 O'Connell St, Sydney NSW 2000

Named one half of the one of the most influential couples in the world and the big man in RNB/Hip Hop, Jay-Z, The Carter found at 16 O'Connel St, Sydney NSW 2000 is heavily inspired by the New York lifestyle and from the amount of food me and my mate consumed last Friday (see flatlay on right.) the Carter Sydney is paradise in the heart of the CBD that every foodie dreams of.

What to drink:
In the cocktail list you will find humorous names like Kimye, Obama Out and Crooked Hillary which as far as I can tell are all great but my personal fav is HOV a drink inspired by the nickname Jay Z gave himself as the god of rap. In this drink you will find a little bit of D'usse Cognac, Dom Benedict, Ron Zacapa Rum and rhubarb bitters served in a crystal glass with ice covers with a few anise stars and a burning cinnamon stick.

What to eat:
Starter: The Carter has some awesome options like their delicioso guacomole and the Minaj salad obviously nicknamed after rapper Nikki Minaj but you  can't go to The Carter and not order the notorious. A bowl of deep fried chips topped with house made mac and cheese, garnished with crispy bacon and grated cheese.

Main: Apparently the mains are to share or not to share but let me tell you this if you can eat a main course here all by yourself not share either you have the metabolism of a race horse or you clearly aren't worried about your figure which is fine but some of us have to watch our figures hunty, so I recommend  ordering with intent to share. What to order for the main I would go for the Obama fried chicken and the big boi steak these dishes will leave you wanting more.

Dessert: If you make it to dessert which in full disclosure I didn't but if you and your crew can manage something sweet, The Carter signature house made waffles looks beyond delish.
