Sichuan Snack Fair
South-west China’s Sichuan province is known for its fiery cuisine. And the restaurants doing it best in Melbourne are coming together for what could very well be the spiciest event on the Melbourne Food & Wine Festival roster.
Go stall to stall and get ready to feel the heat. There'll be dishes such as Sichuan cold noodles by Dainty Sichuan; silken tofu with black vinegar, smoked daikon, sesame and peanuts by Lee Ho Fook; and zhong (or Sichuan-style) dumplings and Chongqing noodle soup by Supernormal.
Plus, mapo tofu jaffles and Sichuan fish tacos by Super Ling; Chongqing chicken ribs (with cucumber salad) and Sichuan chicken sandos by Belles Hot Chicken; cumin-spiced lamb ribs and wontons in hot chilli sauce by Sun Kitchen; spicy pork steamed buns by Spice Temple; and spicy crisp barbeque pork by Da Long Yi.
There’ll also be mapo tofu by Fuchsia Dunlop – British writer, cook and Sichuan food expert – who’s headed to Australia for the event.
Entry is free, with food and drink available to buy. This event is cashless.
From 11am to 5pm.
