Nour X Lilymu Mash Up For One Night Only, Sydney

On Wednesday 24 March, for one night only, one of Sydney’s favourite Middle Eastern restaurants, Nour will come together with Lilymu at Parramatta Square.

The culinary mash-up combines both South East Asian flavours with Middle Eastern, showcasing a tasting menu which will include dishes such as a chicken shawarma bao, samke harrah dumplings, Arab XO fried rice and pistachio and pandan mafroukeh.

Speaking about the mash-up, Paul Farag said “From the outside it might seem that these two cuisines wouldn’t work when mashed-up, reworked and redefined however, when you look into the history of both Middle Eastern and South Asian cuisine, surprisingly there are lots of similarities.”

Brendan Fong added “Paul and I have worked together to create dishes you probably have never seen before on a menu. We have focused on bold flavours and classic staples that are seen across both cuisines, to create something that is pretty unique but also tastes amazing.”

This is the second and final event in the series, which saw Lilymu take over Nour earlier this month. 

The 8 course tasting menu is $98pp with drinks extra.
