When it comes to food events, there's nothing quite like the Sunnybank $2 Food Trail. It's all there in the name, with the Brisbane suburb's shopping hub becoming a diner's delight in the most affordable fashion. Think of it as the ultimate self-guided foodie adventure, for nothing more than spare change — and with around 22,000 people taking part.
So how does it work? Between 2–8pm on Saturday, July 14, you'll walk between more than 45 local cafes and restaurants, all at your own pace. From chicken katsu and wontons to mochi ice cream and bubble tea, every participating eatery will feature a range of authentic, oriental cuisines. You'll feast on Chinese, Japanese, Hong Kong-style, Vietnamese, Korean and Taiwanese dishes, and you'll only pay $2 per tasting plate.
With such an array of steaming soups and sizzling stir-fries on offer, we don't recommend eating lunch first; in fact, you'd best arrive feeling as hungry as possible. Snacking on signature dishes is the main course — or several — but there's also plenty of non-edible appetisers, too. Enjoy some live music at five busking stations, watch lion dancers and and check out the roaming entertainment as you feast and wander, adding the perfect garnish to every meal by setting the mood.
