Luke has just recently travelled throughout Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia & Indonesia and now wants to take Australian's tastebuds for an adventure of their own with his new restaurant. On Level 6 of The Star, the 'Café Court', you can try new dishes every week that he will also be showcasing on his show in line with the event. These dishes will vary in cost but to entice your tastebuds a little bit you can expect dishes like Lobster Tom Yum with mussels, lemongrass, lime leaves and vermicelli noodles; Vietnamese-style baguettes & what I'm looking forward too; Smashed Fried Crispy Chicken with chilli sambal & rice (plus so much more!).

So not only can you feel like a well-travelled taste tester for Asian food, but also see all the vivid people who inspired these dishes for Luke in the first place.
