Flavors from around the world sidle up alongside each other in Marrickville, an inner west Sydney suburb that recycles and upcycles. Nibble Vietnamese pork buns and sample sticky Baklava before heading to a late-night underground music venue that plays until one of Marrickville's churches open its doors the next morning. As cooly scrupulous cafes move in next to endearingly disheveled hole-in-the-wall eateries, Marrickville minds the gap between the new and the old—a dichotomy which only increases its appeal.See places to stay Save this neighborhood
