Thanks for making October’s Little Eat Street a huge success!

This year’s Little Eat Street Program at the Market was the biggest yet.

Our taste tour travelled from Hong Kong to Hanoi with yum cha, teppanyaki, takoyaki, sushi, spicy sichuan, pho, and more at this Asian cultural experience.

We are currently making plans for a similar event during Chinese New Year, so watch this space.
