This year Sydney will be bringing in the Chinese New Year with a nighttime food extravaganza at Carriageworks. Curated by award winning chef Kylie Kwong, the night market will be inspired by the street food of Harajuku in Tokyo, Hongdae in Seoul and AnFu Lu in Shanghai. All this unique Asian culinary goodness is set to take place on Saturday January 28.

The Carriageworks' Night Market will also double as the opening night to the 2017 Sydney Chinese New Year Festival, which will welcome the year of the Rooster. Kylie Kwong's intention is to provide all kinds of foodies with a wok full of multi-cultural cuisine. As a result, each stellar eatery has been given the mandate to conjure a dish that reflects their own unique style while at the same time incorporating an Asian twist.

The Chinese New Year night market will also include all the glorious sounds and pop culture of Asia. There is sure to be something for everyone, as the food fest is set to incorporate a distinct multicultural arrangement of eateries. The dining options on the night will highlight the culinary skills of many of Sydney's hottest chefs, as they attempt to replicate and innovate the unique street food that makes Tokyo, Seoul and Shanghai famous.
