Sydney's Biggest and Brightest Asian Cultural Celebration

Cabramatta Moon Festival


Food glorious food! Where there's a food festival there are hordes of hungry humans. Even better, if it involves Asian cuisine. At Asian festivals, we are attracted like bees to honey. Becoming mesmerised by the energy of the people, the vibrant colours, noise and the astonishing array of spicy, sweet, sour and salty food. I for one find Asia a fascinating destination for any holiday and generally choose an Asian restaurant when dining out.

If you've travelled to Asia, you might remember that delicious smell of burning wood that permeates the air in places like Cambodia, Thailand and Vietnam. All around you, there are hardwood barbecues smouldering all day, heating small clay ovens atop with woks and pots sizzling with fragrant dishes.

From Pho (noodle soup), Banh mi (crusty baguettes filled with pork, pate, chicken, chilli, vegetables and herb salad) to spicy stir fries, the food is all one fabulous taste sensation.

Travelling in Asia becomes a lusty experience amongst the colour and bustle of street vendors, market places and mobile vendors. Cabramatta, a local alternative is well-known for its diverse range of Asian Cuisine. Here you can enjoy food created with love from the local community of Vietnamese-Australian origin and every year they all put on a show to feed the masses.
