Prepare your stretchy pants – BrisAsia Food Festival is returning with stellar bites, creative cooking classes and a whole lot of fun. The mini food festival is part of BrisAsia Festival and will be taking over some of Brisbane’s best Asian eateries. Southside diners can kick off their culinary journey at Melbourne Street’s Chu The Phat, which will be dishing up its usual array of star dishes plus a few specials (hello wagyu dumplings and duck buns), whilst city slickers can pop into Madame Wu at Eagle Street Pier for flavoursome Asian delicacies like tang sui chicken ribs and Hong Kong Portuguese chicken with fragrant pear salad. For authentic Asian eats, Chinatown is where it’s at, with crowd-favourite restaurant Super Bowl and gems like Golden Palace Chinese Restaurant and Curry ‘n’ Cask all serving up special dishes as a part of the festival. Hungry folk can get their curry fix with an indulgent two-course banquet at Indian Brothers in Annerley or Taringa, whilst those searching for authentic Filipino cuisine can head to Kubo’s Bar and Grill in Coorparoo.
As well as some delicious deals being dished up across the city, eager diners can also put on the chef’s hat and get their hands dirty with some hands-on cooking classes on Saturday February 20. King Street locale Fat Dumpling will be hosting a dumpling class where foodies can learn the secrets of how to make its dynamite dumplings. If momos are your mouth-watering morsels of choice, then make tracks to 8848 Momo House for a flavourful cooking class where seasoned chefs will teach you the ins and outs of making a perfect Nepalese-style momo. You’ll be a pro in no time.
