Pappa Roti, Macquarie Park

Besides Max Brenner, there’s a dearth of dessert options open late at Macquarie Centre. We man­age, though, stop­ping by Pappa Roti before head­ing to join the almost guar­an­teed queues at PappaRich upstairs.

Egg waffles ($4.00) are a recent obses­sion of mine, and here, they’re made fresh to order, then cooled on a rack situ­ated between two fans for about 5 minutes.

The res­ult is the cool­ing is egg waffles that are super crispy on the out­side with a deli­cious eggy inside. There’s no steam to soften the egg waffles here unlike at Marble Street upstairs. The innards have less of a cake tex­ture than Marble Street but lack the addict­ive bounce and light­ness of the ones at Come Buy.

The egg waffles also come with your choice of ice cream for $7.00, includ­ing fla­vours such as rose­wa­ter, taro, thai milk tea, duri­an, bubblegum as well as your more ordin­ary fla­vours. Perhaps next up though, is to try their sig­na­ture cus­tard filled crispy buns.

Pappa Roti is at Level 2 Upper, Macquarie Shopping Centre, Cnr of Herring Rd & Waterloo Road, Macquarie Park NSW 2113.
