Get ready for the likes of Bangkok Street Food, Calabang, Bao Brothers Eatery, Biang Biang, Chinese Dim Sum King, Donut Papi, Foodie del Mar, Flyover Fritterie, FRY’D ᴹᵀ, Gelato Messina, HOY PINOY, Johnny Bird, KorBq, Kumokumo, Lets Do Yum Cha, Chur Burger, May's Malaysian Hawker, Mr. Bao, POKLOL, PUFFLE, Raijin Japanese Cuisine, Satay Brothers Food Truck, Shallot Thai, Teppanyaki Noodles, Okonomiyaking, Bearded Pigs, The Muglan, Twistto Original Korean Twist Potato, Flying Noodle, Waffleland, Wokmaster and Wonderbao.
And as for the dishes you'll be able to jump on—let's just say this year's menu is next level. Expect chicken noodles from Bangkok Street Food, Korean sweet pancakes from Donut Papi (and other small-batch Asian-inspired doughnuts), paellas from Foodie Del Mar’s Fusion Flavourbombs and Sydney’s first pakora and chai bar serving up all the vegan feeds from Flyover Fritterie.
Each year Gelato Messina creates something very over the top and this year’s “Eye Of The Thai-ger” treat, packed with condensed milk pudding, milk crumble and shaved ice, does not disappoint.
You'll also find cheeseburger "puffles" from the iconic Poklol x Puffle, pulled pork rolls from The Bearded Pigs and a whole heap more.
