PAZUNDAUNG

Translating to ‘prawn mountain’, Pazundaung takes its name from the creek that runs through the township where, apparently, you could once have caught a mountain of prawns. Just outside the hubbub of downtown, it’s got an edgier, gritty vibe, with traintracks running through the center and a constant stream of heavy trucks headed out of town. Increasingly, though, the ‘hood is characterized by a cluster of kooky bars, shops and restaurants. Likely spot for the new, cool eatery you haven’t heard of yet.
