As Sydney’s Pyrmont offers up yet another hidden culinary gem, it’s time to take a trip back in time. 1945 was the year the Indonesians attained independence from the Dutch (hence the restaurant’s name), but the Europeans left behind the legacy of the rijstaffel or rice table. It’s a style of eating lots of little dishes with rice, similar to tapas or a degustation. While you can order a la carte at 1945 - Dutch East Indies Cuisine, the best way to experience it all (and avoid arguments) is to pick the set menu, where you’ll encounter crunchy corn fritters, grilled coconut prawns and spicy beef stew. Call ahead for open hours.
