About Me

Food is one of my many joys in life. It is a common bond I share among my friends and family. Combining food and travel makes it all the more interesting. I enjoy going out for a good meal with friends and family. The array of various cuisines and our fantastic array of produce really makes Sydney such a great city to live in. Blogging is my hobby and my posts on restaurant meals I have had are paid for and not gratis. Any gratis provided to me will always be stated beforehand.

Zumbo Lab

Zumbo - now this is a famous one name word in Sydney and I believe in Australia too.

My friend KY found out that I had not been to the Zumbo cafe yet so he was kind enough to drive me to Rozelle. We were already having lunch in Woolwich so going to Rozelle from there was literally a stone's throw away.

It was already quite late in the afternoon when we arrived at Terry Street in Rozelle. Adriano was not there, so it was just a battle of working out which macarons to buy. The standout of the building is the Zumbo art grafitti on the main wall of the 'lab'. Totally unmissable.

The cafe is actually very small. The fascination is being able to view what was happening in the kitchen. You can actually see the patissiers cooking away in the kitchen. The artwork in the "lab" was very funky and very Zumbo.

I ended up taking away Pear and Vanilla, Fig and Burnt Honey, Lemon and Olive Oil and Raspberry Shortbread macarons.

The 4 Macarons!

Now I can finally say that I have been to Zumbo's. The results of having the macarons are that they are delicious and full of flavour. The lemon and olive oil macaron - a burst of lemon and the lingering subtle taste of the olive oil. The fig and burnt honey was full of flavour. As a matter of fact, all the four flavours were a great hit!

I will come back to try out more flavours.

Now I wish I went too. Love how vibrant colours of the macarons.
