The Dip, Sydney

The Dip is headed by Sydney DJ Levins and Sydney Foodie Bianca. Located in the GoodGod  Small Club on Liverpool street, The Dip serves American-style snacks such as hot dogs, nachos, grilled corn and many more.

I was catching up with the gym enthusiast, S, and suggested this place. As per usual, I had perused the menu closely prior to coming and knew exactly what I wanted, the pulled pork sandwich! However, we thought we should share so we can try more things.

We started with the Lev’s Dawg ($12) – smoked kosher hot dog with chipotle mayo, fresh tomato salsa, grilled yellow peppers and American mustard on a steamed bun.

I love the squiggle of mustard; the bun was soft, the hot dog was good, and love the chipotle mayo. The tomato salsa and grilled yellow peppers were a wonderful complement. It was good and tasty but I have to admit it wasn’t my favourite.

The southern smoke ($12) – 12 hour smoked pulled pork sandwich with bbq beans, apple and cabbage slaw and spicy bbq sauce. Frigging REDONKULOUS! It was one of the nicest pork sandwiches I have had.

Generous serving of smoked pulled pork which was incredibly tender that it just melted in my mouth. I love the combination of the sweet bbq beans and the spicy bbq pork sauce, it was just EPIC! The bun was soft and I wanted more. I couldn’t help but ‘eye’ the other half, but S too demolished it and the next thing I knew, it was gone and we both wanted another one!

The grilled corn ($8) on the cob, with lime mayo and chipotle salt is deliciously addictive! The corn kennel which burst with sweetness in my mouth, the creamy lime mayo and topped with chipotle salt – OH MY GOODNESS! I couldn’t help but smother my corn with the yummy lime mayo, it was just amazing.

The slaw ($6), apple and cabbage were light and creamy. Thought we should have some veggies.

As the waitress cleared our table, I commented on how wonderful the pulled pork sandwich was and she claimed that the nachos were just as good. S and I looked at each other and said ‘yes’? So behold, pulled pork nachos ($15) – corn chip topped with 12 hour smoked pork, pinto beans, tomato salsa, bbq sauce, lime cream and cheese.

I was in heaven! Pulled pork heaven! The crispy corn chips, the gooey cheese, the remarkably succulent pork, topped with salsa, bbq sauce and lime cream. I had to pause, it was SOOOO frigging good! I couldn’t help but scrape every single thing off the plate!

We sat there for a while before ordering dessert. Ice cold guac ($10) – sweet avocado ice cream, strawberry salsa and waffle chips. The avocado ice cream was deliciously sweet and creamy. It had a very subtle avocado flavour so don’t fret if you don’t like avocado. The strawberry salsa was a wonderful complement.

It was definitely the pulled pork sandwich and nacho that won my heart! It’s a shame that they are not open for lunch (although, in saying that, it is probably a good thing as I would be over every single day!). It’s definitely a fun place to eat, have a few drinks and catch up with friends. This won’t be my last visit, I am sure we will be back in the next week or so. Go straight for the pulled pork, it will not disappoint! Thought it was better than the hot dog, even Bianca agrees with me!

Love the ambiance, the friendly staff, the jugs of drinks and of course, the food!

And of course, it was so nice to catch you S!

Have been a couple of times back to the dip. They had a special that evening, ‘Mrs Officer’ named after their favourite song Lil’ Wayne Songs’ – pork steaks prepared three ways, cured, smoked and grilled served on a toasted brioche with tomato salsa, chipotle mayonnaise, and apple and cabbage slaw.

The Chef, Mr Levins, recognised me and look what he wrote on my plate – ENJOY 🙂 I certainly did enjoy it! It was frigging awesome, the pork delicious and toasted brioche – YUM!

The salsa fries ($6) – seriously crispy and the salsa – perfect accompaniment!

And of course, you can’t go to the good god without a drink – sangria.

Definitely worth going back even if its just for the Mrs Officer! I have heard wonderful things about their fried chicken wings – buffalo wings – seriously need to get myself some!

If you haven’t been, you really do need to get yourself there – and the special ‘Mrs Officer’!

    Man that looks like BBQ heaven. I have to ask, did you bring a torch as it looks like you somehow got a lot of light despite the darkness!

    That pulled pork sandwich is huge! I don’t think after eating that whole thing I’d have enough room for anything (except that equally amazing looking nachos, of course). But yes, it does seem like a good place to just chill and enjoy a good sandwich and beer, perhaps. 🙂

      its a very casual and relaxing place…and the pulled pork sandwich is really ‘not’ that big 🙂 it was good though!

    I saw that corn on suzes post and last night baked some corn in chipotle salt butter then served with a lime mayo, it was really really good!
