Loosen your belts, because Ramadan Street Food Festival is taking over the streets of Auburn for one night only.
Located between Mary Street and Beatrice Street on Auburn Road, locals and visitors are welcomed to wander through the neighbourhood banquet area, peruse over 20 venues and stalls serving up mouth-watering dishes before dining under the stars.
If you've never embraced Ramadan before, Muslims fast from sunrise to sunset every day for an entire month, only breaking fast (Iftar) at 5pm. So whether you're a part of the beautiful community or a lover of all things street food, get ready for an array of tantalising treats, with crowds flocking to Auburn until late. You can even watch a movie in their outdoor cinema for two separate showings (Window Horses at 7pm, The Breadwinner at 9:30pm).
We're talking a huge line up of food trucks and famous local eateries serving up signature dishes and an overall authentic Ramadan dining experience. Think: deep fried dough soaked in sugar syrup from Lokma-nia, juicy smoked ribs and droolworthy burgers from 2 Smokin Arabs, epic kebabs from Utsab Food Truck and Catering as well as an array of Turkish street food from Mr Shish—to name a few.
With so many droolworthy delicacies on offer we recommend catching the train to Auburn Station, which is just a short three-minute walk from the event. Walk off that extra serve of baklava that we know you'll be ordering.
Best yet? It's free to attend so you'll only have to pony up the dough for your choice dish (or dishes, we're not here to judge).
