Do you know the secret to a perfect baked feta pasta? Know all the tricks to make your cloud bread as light and fluffy as a cumulus? Do you even know what these words mean?? If so, there's a one-night-only event happening in Redfern this June that you won't want to miss.

On Thursday, June 23, Scape, Australia's biggest student accommodation operator, will host its first-ever TikTok-inspired pop-up restaurant, with humble student recipes given a blue tick-worthy glow-up by three of Australia's most popular TikTok food creators.

The dishes are based on research undertaken by Scape which showed that almost 75% of uni students who live out of home eat alone, and those that do often get by with a basic recipe rotation of toasties, pasta with sauce and stir fries.

To that end, the Scape TikTok Creator Cook-Up will see food influencers Vincent Yeow Lim, Morgan Hipworth and Priya Sharma take over a dining room at Scape's Eveleigh Street property to present a menu inspired by these dishes, but delivered with a surprising twist or two.

Lim's Yumyumcha is a creative take on a classic toastie, a flavour and texture bomb which sees ham and cheese siu mai served with XO sauce, garlic butter, croutons and topped with gold leaf. Sharma's Samosa Be a Stir Fry is reinvented stir fry that promises a cross-cultural explosion in which a samosa is packed with a delicious plant-based stir fry, noodles and all.

For dessert, Hipworth, who opened go-to Melbourne bakehouse Bistro Morgan when he was just 15, will be whipping up the aptly-named Nothing Is Impastable. The sweet take on a comfort classic sees sweet tortellini loaded with Nutella ricotta filling and served with raspberry coulis and hazelnut praline.

You'll need to hurry if you want to attend — spots are limited and they're filling up faster than you can whip up a Dalgona coffee.
