Eat Street is a food lover’s heaven on Earth.
Not being able to travel officially makes us nervous but thankfully we’ve got Eat Street just a short drive away from the city to cure many of our woes. So long as we’ve got this foodie paradise, our taste buds can travel the world. (Featured image: Eat Street Northshore, Facebook)
But what to eat first?
Like, seriously. With 70-plus containers fitted out into food stalls, there’s plenty on offer, and choosing what to tuck into first, like figuring out where to eat next, is an exercise that takes time and energy. Whatever you do, never go on an empty stomach. You’ve been warned.
Whether it’s dumplings or Korean sliders, the classic burger or Japanese pizzas, fish n chips or Peruvian lomo saltado, there are decisions to make. And that’s only scratching the surface.
Do you stick to the Main Deck, or do you trawl every area until you find what piques your interest? If you’re a sweet tooth, save some room for dessert and take a trip down Kombi Alley where you’ll find brownies, sundaes, and salted caramel anything.
Thankfully, the food has all been divvied up into various cultural areas and all dietary requirements should be catered for. You just need to find it.
To help you out, though, check out Eat Street’s handy new website where you can select the type of cuisine you’re looking for and find out where to eat it—right down to the shipping container number. However, you must keep in mind that there is no guarantee you will stick to your choice once you walk through Eat Street’s doors.
There’s more than just food at Eat Street. There are bars serving up alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages as well as a number of stages and areas where live music and other acts are performed so once you get your food, find a place to sit down and enjoy your meal with a show. To see what’s coming up next on stage, check out the What’s On page.
Eat Street has got you covered as well if you’re keen on doing a spot of shopping with stalls selling retro, vintage, and other wares. There’s even a shop to get your dog some treats too, who probably deserves it after following you around for the evening.
Open every weekend from 4pm, Eat Street is where you want to be when you want to eat everything but don’t know where to start.
Entry to Eat Street now costs $5 per person, but kids under the age of 12 are free.
