Papparich, Sydney CBD

Pappa don't preach... Err I mean Papparich! Did you know Papparich has opened up another venue in the Sydney CBD on liverpool st? It's a short stroll from World Square if you are craving those Malaysian flavours.

Papparich is a popular Malaysian Chain which has 7 locations across Sydney. I've been to the one in Parramatta and Chatswood but it's my first time at the newly opened Papparich in Sydney CBD. I order a hot milo which goes down well like a treat. Alternatively, you can go for a tasty watermelon juice or a mango mania which is topped with lychees. There's lots of colourful drinks and also coffee blends as well.


My gal pals and I order up a feast to share as we start talking about what's going on in our lives and current affairs. Firstly we start off with the curry laksa with seafood ($15.90) which has a nice chilli hit which subsides. I sip my hot milo when I am first surprised by the slight hit of chilli.

There's also the char kuay teow ($14.90) which is always a favourite of mine. The thin noodles is served up with fish cakes, prawns and egg. I love noodles so I get straight into this dish. Look at that prawn porn.

Another dish which is easy to share are the satay sticks and you can get a mix of beef and chicken. You can get 6 skewers for $14.90. We all agree that the satay sticks don't quite compete well with Mamak but are still enjoyable to eat.

We also order the Roti Telur Bawang which is flat roti with egg and onion and is served up with two dipping curry sauces and sambal sauce. I really like this dish ($8.90). There's something about that sambal sauce that is really satisfying.

My friends and I agree that the favourite dish of the night is definitely the dry egg curry noodles with curry chicken ($14.90). My friend nicknamed Tunez says she orders this dish all the time when her bf and her visit the Broadway Papparich. I hadn't tried it before but was pleasantly satisfied from the flavoursome noodles. I recommend.

Also, there's the roti planta ($8.90, below) where the roti is sugary and sweet. While it's nice, I think I prefer the savoury normal roti (above) or the Roti Telur Bawang however the roti planta is a nice change.

If you're dining with a vegetarian as well, there is a great vegetarian option - including the Vegetarian Fried Mee Hoon with curry and egg ($14.90) where there is a meat substitute. My meat eating friends are pleasantly surprised at how edible this dish is. 

If you have any room for dessert, I try the Banana Fritter with your choice of ice cream (I go for black sesame). The fritter is deep fried and crumbed ($9.90). We also try the roti with banana and vanilla ice cream ($10.90) which is much lighter and enjoyable to eat. I really enjoyed the roti with banana and vanilla ice cream. I might even be tempted to try this dish with black sesame ice cream.

Summary: If you haven't been to Papparich before then check it out! Otherwise, there's another location which may be closer to your work! My faves are the Char Kuay Teow, Roti Telur Bawang and the dry noodle chicken curry. I also really enjoyed the roti banana ice cream dessert.

  1. The place itself looks great with good pub area, and a much larger upstairs beer hall. Nice decor at San Francisco event venues with brick walls, wooden bench seating, and chalkboard beer lists showing off the day's selections.
