Lakemba, a Melting Pot of Cultures and Exotic Bites!

During the 70s when I was growing up in Sydney, the food landscape was fairly bleak. Pizza Hut and Kentucky Fried Chicken were considered trendy and were also very popular. However, there were some pockets of ethnic communities who brought their food traditions with them when they settled here. The Greeks had Marrickville, the Italians had Leichhardt and the Lebanese had Lakemba.
