Eat Street Markets

Over the last couple of years, Brisbane’s ‘Foodie’ scene has really come into its own. Restaurants with impeccable food are opening their doors every week, chilli-cook offs have become an annual event in the social calendar and food trucks cruise the streets delighting locals with their delicious fare.

With the city’s newfound love of food, the phenomenal success of Eat Street Markets is no surprise. Inspired by the colourful food markets found throughout Asia, Eat Street showcases a huge variety of cuisine sold out of market stalls, food trucks and miniature restaurants that operate out of re-worked shipping containers. With live music, great food and a teeny entrance fee of $2 per person, Eat Street is a great way to spend a Friday or Saturday night, which is exactly what Tom  and I did a dew weeks ago for date night.

And what a date it was! We gorged ourselves silly on mushrooms from Greg’s Mushrooms (surprisingly filling), delicious pork meatballs from Wholesomeness, some tasty dumplings from Michael’s Dumplings, a refreshing passionfruit and lychee cocktail from the Mocktail stall and finally some aaaahhhmazing Gluten Free Doughnuts from Gluten Off to top off the night and push us over the edge from slightly full to busting at the seams! All were superbly delicious and enjoyed amongst the colourful strings of lights and live music.
