The team behind Nour and Henrietta will open contemporary Asian-inspired restaurant LILYMU in the new Parramatta Square precinct later this month.
Brendan Fong (ex-Mr Wong) will be at the helm of the kitchen, bringing an unrestricted approach to the food, with influences from China and South East Asia. The menu at LILYMU will feature a selection of snacks and larger shared dishes including tom yum prawn dumplings with soy and lime dressing; pipis with XO sauce and kaffir lime; red curry of scampi with betel leaves, and desserts including a milk tea Tres Leches cake.
The full service bar showcases a comprehensive wine list and cocktails, including a Dragon Sour of gin, Lillet rosé, dragon fruit syrup, Thai basil leaves, fresh lime and egg whites, and a Fiery Passion – a spin on the classic margarita, including Thai chilli-infused tequila blanco, yuzushu sake, Aperol, lemon, passionfruit and agave.
Co-owner Ibby Moubadder said: “We’ve had such success with our restaurants, Nour and Henrietta and we wanted to continue that success as we move to our newest location in the Parramatta Square precinct.
“We believe that a restaurant is as much about the ambience, good conversation and laughter, as is the quality of food and wine and so we’re thrilled to be expanding our portfolio to include LILYMU, a contemporary Asian restaurant.”
With seating for up to 160, the space features multiple dining areas, including communal tables, a private dining room and outdoor dining. A pared back palette, the space features concrete, dark timbers and aged bronze accents, with softer furnishings injecting colour to the space.
LILYMU will be open for dinner Tuesday to Saturday and for lunch and dinner Fridays and Saturdays.
