World Street Eats is Launceston's celebration of street food from around the world.
With international travel currently off the cards, Launceston's World Street Eats is filling the void for foodies keen to sample dishes from around the world.
Each market is a gastronomic adventure, with an everchanging line up of both sweet and savoury delicacies like aromatic seafood paella and perfectly balanced curries, to apple beignets and golden dutch stroopwafels.
The street food market was conceived by long-time friends Pearl Ueranant of Craft Cafe, Tik Pearse of Sushi Plus and Jaewon Chae of Tassie Korean Kitchen to celebrate, empower and showcase the diversity within Launceston's community and has been a hit with foodies since its inception.
With only two markets to go for the season, don't miss your chance to sample exotic flavours from around the world in Launceston's Civic Square.
For those keen to try something new and unique, market organisers Pearl & Jaewon recommend sampling the mango sticky rice from Maesi’s Thai Kitchen and delicious Afghan samosas from Kabul Veggie Delights.
Must try items include Korean pancakes from Tassie Korean Kitchen and Tassie Murtabak, serving a range of flavourful Malaysian dishes like Murtabak and Roti.
Each market features a variety of live music or dance performances from community groups to entertain crowds. Market organisers Pearl and Jaewon chose Civic Square for its central location "...It's the perfect event for a lazy Sunday, you can grab a casual lunch, sit under the trees on the grass and soak up the atmosphere."
From freshly baked Dutch stroopwafels, to Matcha Mille Crepe Cakes and Asian inspired sweet mango sticky rice, World Street Eats vendors have plenty of options to satisfy sweet tooths.
Also popular are the Italian gelatos and semi freddo filled cannoli, with a perfect crispy shell and creamy sweet filling. With a constantly changing selection of vendors, you'll be sure to find something new to try that will cure any sugar craving.
