Valley of Spices
One night. Twelve street food vendors. Plenty of delicious Asian-style dishes.
It's BrisAsia time in Brisbane, again. Each year, for the whole month of February, this city of ours celebrates Asian culture — and in great news for your hungry stomach, plenty of food is always on the menu.
Expect a heap of bites to eat at the festival's new Valley of Spices event, which takes place from 4–9pm on Sunday, February 9. We hope you like a bit of heat in your meal and some tingling tastebuds afterwards, because that's what you'll be getting.
Twelve hawker-style street vendors will be serving up their spicy dishes and, if you want to know how to work your own culinary magic at home — spicing up your own curries, or adding some bite to your homemade dumplings, for example — there'll also be cooking demonstrations.
Taking over the Chinatown Mall for a busy afternoon and evening, the free event will also feature live performances to help celebrate Lunar New Year.
