Putting the culture back in food
1. Dinner

From Mexican to Malaysian to the Mushroom Man, there is something for everyone. German sausages, Chinese dumplings and Philly Cheesesteaks are mouth-wateringly tempting. Indeed, food spotting becomes the primary pastime as you anticipate where your next stop will be.

Hungarian garlic bread is a popular choice, while potato on a stick will keep the kids happy.

From Italian (c/o MKR's Jake and Elle) to Indonesian, you will not only leave filled to your brim, but with a full plan of what you will be having for your next visit.

2. Dessert

There are a variety of sweet treats to tempt the tastebuds, from churros to crepes or cronuts, gluten-free donuts and the most delicious of cupcakes.

You can even take some Eat Street home.

3. Drinks

You will be spoiled for choice with drinks too - cocktails, mocktails, juices, nutella milkshakes and of course what beckons from the beer booths.

4. The atmosphere

Operating out of a decommissioned wharf in Hamilton, the markets are comprised of shipping containers transformed into mini-restaurants, bars and stalls. With coloured lights and grass-cushioned crate seating, the atmosphere is quirky and fun for all the family.

Free entertainment features, not only on the main stage, but within the market's nooks and crannies so you can sit, eat and people-watch to the strains of live music.

5. The shopping

Eat Street is about more than just dining. A variety of stalls are nestled amongst the food vendors. From arts and crafts to second hand books, jewellery, clothing, fresh flowers and even furniture, there is something to shop for at every turn. There is even the chance to buy your own produce to cook up a storm at home.
