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 three-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. Although the specifics are confirmed yet, if the entertainment is anything like last year’s Lucky Dumpling Festival, expect to see Tai Chi demos as well as Tai Chi workshops, cultural dances from across Asia, and Cantonese opera performing a number of shows. Keep and eye out for the full program here.
In terms of food, it’s a who’s who of Adelaide’s Asian cuisine on show. Bao+ is set to 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. There’s also a heap of stalls at the Lucky Dumpling Market that are able to cater to vegan diets as well as gluten-free and halal diets, if the line-up is anything like 2021!
To check out the full list of options at your disposal, head to the website and be prepared before you go. Expect to find a few of Adelaide’s favourite roving bars in attendance serving up the liquid gold.
