Surry Hills' Crown Street is not necessarily where you'd expect to find a restaurant devoted to home-style European cuisine, but here among the renovated pubs and cool cafes, you'll find Alchemy. One of Sydney's only Polish restaurants, Alchemy is open for breakfast, but it's lunch and dinner service where you'll get a real taste of what's offered. Traditional dumplings with fillings such as mushroom and sauerkraut set the tone, and mains of pork roulade or beef stroganoff with mashed potatoes really bring it home. In warmer weather, you might want to try one of the lighter dishes on the menu, like the prawn and watermelon salad.
