Hot & Spicy Food Day
Preston Market is transforming into a spicy paradise for one day with $2 chilli shots, $8 chipotle burritos and free hot sauce tastings.
If you're the type of person who pours Tabasco on their breakfast, loads up their pizza with chilli oil and can think of nothing tastier than a bowl of spicy noodles, you'll want to put next Thursday, February 27 in your diary. Preston Market is dedicating a day to all things hot, spicy and sweat-inducing.
It's safe to say the northside precinct has your feasting well and truly sorted — a stack of its traders are getting into the spirit with a range of special offers, free tastings and one-off spicy dishes. Swing by the Local Pantry Co for free Danny Balboa hot sauce tastings from midday–2.30pm, then wander over to Super Raw for $2 spicy immunity shots. For something heartier, Cornutopia is serving up $8 chipotle bean burritos and you'll find spicy beef noodle soup (bun bo hue) for $15 at T's Vietnamese.
The chilli-filled fun continues over at Lemnos Deli (with chilli-stuffed olive, chilli-coated salami and hot sopressa), at Julie Take Away (serving a one-off chilli chicken tenders sanga) and Dragisha & Nikola Bakery (with a chilli tomato bread).
If merely eating chilli doesn't scratch your spicy itch, the market will also be hosting cooking demonstrations from 1–2pm and 1.45–2.45pm.
