There’s more than dumplings, though we wouldn’t be complaining if there weren’t.
Brought to you by the team behind Gluttony, Adelaide’s Lucky Dumpling Market will be serving up the tastes of Asia’s street food for another year. Like last year, the two-week festive food market serving all things tasty will be set up at Elder Park to allow for more space, more distance, and more fun for everyone.
Entertainment at the market is free and will include live music, performances, and community activations on each of the three weekends that the market is running. There will be Tai Chi demos as well as Tai Chi workshops, cultural dances from across Asia, and even a Cantonese opera performing a number of shows. Evenings on the first weekend will also see DJ sets from the likes of Aaron Duff from Chinese Electronic Music Project, as well as DJ Tranzit and DJ Tom Ganly. Check out the full program for this weekend here.
In terms of food, it’s a who’s who of Adelaide’s Asian cuisine on show. Bao+ will be in attendance again serving up their Taiwanese favourites, so to will Chef Kim and its Korean delights as well as Enfes Gözleme, Flatiron Toastie and Momo Shop, Humpty Dumplings, Mr Chow’s Dumpling Bar, Ragi’s Spice Kitchen 89 and The Filipino Project among a few others. Some of the Lucky Dumpling Market stalls are able to cater to vegan diets as well as gluten-free and halal diets.
To check out the full list of options at your disposal, head to the Lucky Dumpling website and be prepared before you go. Three bars will be slinging drinks this year, with the Tanqueray Bar serving gin and other mixers, beers from the Coopers Bar, and the redesigned Sake Bar.
