Oh yeah, we’re starting with dessert. As you should. KOI Dessert Bar is the best of the best, with every cake looking like a delicious artwork – literally. At Parramatta Lane, they’re going to have a layered cake featuring Nadia Odlum’s artwork Our Intertwining Lives. And tasting like one too. The care that goes into making every cake perfect is incredible, and eating these desserts is honestly a spiritual experience.

Knafeh. Attractive bearded men. Need I say more?

(If you’re one of the poor souls who haven’t tried the Palestinian slice of heaven that is Knafeh yet, it’s basically a cheese or semolina based creamy dessert with plenty of rose syrup and pistachos on top.)

Punjabi Fusion

Did you think I was going to wait that long before mentioning Indian food? No. Indian is everyone’s favourite, and if it’s not your fave then you have no taste. Sorry not sorry. Head on over to the Riverbank site for Parramatta Lanes to see their very own Little India. Punjabi Fusion always hits the mark with its modern Indian food, but there’ll be plenty of other Indian joints to give you all the different types of butter chicken you can dream of.
