So I went along to the Parramatta Lanes festival last week. I’m sure I’ve mentioned this before, but I really love this for a event for a couple of reasons. It gives the Western Suburbs the chance to get access to some of the most delicious eateries around Sydney, it’s open across a couple of week nights and of course, THE FOOD!
Just cause I’m a fat piggy, here are some of the bits and pieces I tracked down and tried at the event.
Town Hall Lane
This lane had such an amazing atmosphere. I feel the setting tried hard to evoke the sense of South East Asia with warm orange lighting, street food carts and lots of South East Asian inspired decorations We tucked in on some samosas and fresh Nan from Detour Indian and O!Momo. Mmmm, I love nan, especially cheese nan.
Colourful lanterns decorate the alley ways as you’re introduced to a hidden bazaar of Middle Eastern flavours and music.
The biggest attraction to the event had to be the undisputed kings of Knafeh, The Bearded Bakers. With popup locations all over Sydney and even Australia, the team have Foodies captivated. The music is pumping, the queues are long and the people are excited. Luckily for us, they pretty much only sell one item, so waiting times are really short.
If you haven’t seen the team in action, I highly recommend adding it to your foodie bucket list. You won’t be disappointed.
From a distance, there’s a lot of music and excitement and noise but on closer inspection, there is a beautiful sense of community and enjoyment.
This was my favourite hub of the night. The lights were glowing and the food was flowing and the hipster coconut drinks were yummy! Welcome to Seoul Town.

Hands down one of the most unique and best Vietnamese rolls I’ve ever had. I bought the ‘Breakfast roll’ and since they ran out of the usual bun, so I opted for the Roti – and it was everything I hoped it be. Amazeballs.
I hope to see you there next time.
