If you don’t already know who Luke Nguyen is, (stranger things have happened), you’re about to get well acquainted because for the next three months, he’s popping up in Sydney, serving the best that Southeast Asian street fare has to offer.
The pop-up in The Star’s Café Court will feed your hunger until the end of November, with a menu inspired by some of Luke’s (and our) favourite destinations, including Bangkok, Jakarta and Kuala Lumpur.
Each week, the dishes will change to coincide with his new TV series and will include things like Vietnamese baguettes, crispy chicken with chilli sambal, and lobster tom yum, a vermicelli noodle dish served with mussels, lemongrass and kaffir lime leaves - the yum is well placed when it comes to this dish.
If you’ve ever visited Southeast Asia, you’d know the flavours are rich, fresh and exotic and that’s exactly what Luke is bringing to the hungry bellies of Sydneysiders, who are after a cultural dining experience. And, because we know you’ll be hooked as soon as you dabble in the Luke Nguyen offerings, never fear because his Fat Noodle restaurant will remain as one of the most popular venues in the Star’s dining precinct long after the pop-up pops down.
So, prepare your tastebuds for a worldly exploration of their own, as the Luke Nguyen Asian street food pop up takes you on a mouth-watering, aromatic ride.
