Tokyo Lamington x By George
Croydon Park locals will have the chance to sample this inner west lamington shop's inventive take on the Australian staple.
If you're in Croydon Park, you can head to By George this weekend to get a taste of Tokyo Lamington. The cafe tucked away on Georges River Road will have some of the Newtown bakery's most popular flavours on offer for Croydon Park locals who haven't been able to get to Tokyo Lamington's own store during lockdown. The three flavours you can nab are the fan-favourite fairy bread lamington, the apple pie lamington and the OG, of course.
Over the last few years, Tokyo Lamington's Min Chai and Eddie Stewart have been on a mission to make the humble Australian dessert world-famous. After selling lamingtons in Singapore and Tokyo, they brought the brand to its home country, launching a store in Newtown last year.
While this meant that inner west locals were suddenly flocking to try Tokyo Lamington's inventive takes on the Aussie dessert, these next-level treats have still been hard-to-reach for many Sydneysiders, especially while we can only travel five kilometres from our house during lockdown. So, to help spread the joy, the inner west bakery has been running pop-ups in Parramatta, Penrith, Cecil Hills and now Croydon Park.
The collaboration will begin 8am on Saturday and run throughout the weekend, or until stock runs out. So, head down early if you want to be 100-percent sure you'll be snacking on a chocolate and coconut covered treat this weekend.
