The very famous Zumbo. There's not much I can say that will add to the ridiculously inflated hype and it's very much well deserved for the man behind the dessert empire. I've been keeping a close eye on his creations since his humble little store in Balmain in 2007 and his desserts have impressed Australia nationally for their inventive whimsicality.
There's a Zumbo dessert train jacked on a child's imagination with all the accompanying fluorescent rainbow coloured playground gears at The Star that I've been itching to try out for a while. On the day, there's a little more than half a dozen desserts on display today in miniature form ripe for the picking, literally.

The prices are reasonable with plates ranging between 5 to 10 dollars but the sizes can be a bit tiny but you are paying for a premium location and also the evidently premium name. Overall the food did feel a bit... boring and missing something although I did admittedly pick the more conservative dishes. I'm speaking this from years of experience and they did really fail to wow. A bit of novelty more than anything else, I think next time I'll just go buy some of the more successful cakes from the adjacent Zumbo store and eat them at the food court.
