Stay safe, stay home and takeout – #SUPPORTSYDNEY

While Greater Sydney and surrounding regions are in lockdown, ordering takeaway is a great way to treat yourself and to support local businesses.

Efendy, Balmain
Efendy has brought back its soup and pide cart, serving free lentil soup and pide bread to the local community during lockdown. The soup and pide will be available from 4pm daily throughout lockdown, for as long as stock allows. An honesty box will be available as part of the soup and pide cart, accepting gold coin donations from those in the position to help Efendy support staff until they are able to reopen. Why soup and pide? Onwer Somer Sivrioglu explains: “My nanna was the inspiration for this concept. She experienced political, cultural and economic turmoil but was still able to create delicious food with the little that she had. She has always been an inspiration for me, as I truly believe that through hardship, determination and community, beautiful things can be created”.

For those looking to recreate the Efendy experience at home during lockdown, a takeaway Turkish feast is also available with homemade Turkish bread, dips, mixed meat and vegetable pides, and baklava on offer. Additionally, Efendy is offering a range of wine, beers, raki (anise-flavored aperitif) and non-alcoholic beverages; available for takeaway daily 4pm–9pm.
