Kumar’s Sweets, Shop 3, 85 Mount Derrimut Road, Deer Park. Phone: 8361 7303
After my story about Kumar’s Sweets was published in The Age in October, I thought that was that … next!
However, in the subsequent months, Kumar’s Sweets has become a firm favourite of CTS – meaning it’s high time it had a highly justified post of its own right here!
Look, at Kumar’s you can get typically rich staples of Indian sweetdom, such as barfi or gulab jamun.
You can get, too, a line-up of savoury snacks – often, salty and spicy; always delicious.
But we what REALLY like is a tight line-up of gorgeous and jewel-like Indian sweets largely based on little more than nuts and dried fruit.
That’s right – they could even be loosely labelled as “healthy”; but these are about a gazillion light years in every way from your dreary “health food bars”.
Nope, these – including the wonderful cassata in the top photograph – are something else.
Very highly recommended by CTS.
