Harry's Cafe on Wheels is located in Sydney's King's Cross district, on Cowper Wharf Road, beside the finger wharf building. You can't miss it, it's a big, pretty, interesting-looking blue building. There's a hotel inside there called Blue Hotel. Russell Crowe also owns one of the apartments located in the building.

Harry's Cafe on Wheels is a Sydney institution in itself. It has a colourful history also, making the dining experience all that bit more fun! It was opened in the depression years in 1938 by Harry Edwards. Harry went off to fight in WW2 and got known as The Tiger due to his boxing abilities, which is now the name of one of the Cafe's signature dishes. The cafe has changed hands over the years but it's notoriety has never waned and is a very popular spot to visit for celebrities, tourists and Sydney-Siders alike!

Even though the van is called 'on wheels' it does not move. It looks like a diner and is very small but is covered with colourful Sydney pictures.

The options on the menu range from $4-$7. You can get hot dogs with a variety of different toppings like chilli, cheese, sausces etc. They sell pies also with chicken and mushroom, curry, chicken curry, vegetable and beef fillings. And don't forget the signature Harry's Tiger which is a pie with the filling of your choosing topped with yummy mashed potato and mushy peas with a dollop of gravy to top it off.

It is well worth the visit. It's an experience in itself. It may not be fancy and an elegant dining experience but when you eat here you are soaking up Sydney's history with Harry's being an intergal part of that.
