The people of Newtown are busy but that doesn’t stop them loving food. So when they order take away they want the food to be as good as it would be if they were eating it in-house. With great public spaces there are no shortage of green patches and benches to enjoy a take away meal.
Dean’s Diner on south King Street is a Newtown icon. This is a classic diner staying open late for those needing a feed on the way home. A relaxed vibe and an extensive burger menu make this a local favourite. Pizza Picasso also on south King Street is renewing Newtown’s faith in take away pizza. Fresh ingredients, garlic bread with real garlic and they also deliver. This is pizza Newtown style – fast, fresh and innovative.
Many take away chicken shops have come and gone on King Street but one shop has stood the test of time. This must mean it is damn good. Clem’s Chicken is another Newtown icon occupying a corner shop at Brown and King Street for over thirty years. It is impossible to walk past Clem’s without been enticed in by the smell of their chooks. Clem’s travels well for take away. And the locals all know a great way to spend a sunny day in Newtown is to grab some Clem’s and head to Camperdown park.
Newtown has a strong Mediterranean heritage and every day hungry locals are happy for this as they grab a Kebab from Saray Turkish Pizza and Kebab. Open until the early hours of the morning a pide here is the perfect antidote to a night at the Townie or a quick take away before or after a show at The Enmore Theatre.
Take away in Newtown is fresh, fast and tasty and the vibrant street life of our precincts makes it the ideal place to grab some take away, find a bench and watch all of the delights of this energetic community.
