Asian hawker-style culture and energy came to Select Citywalk, Delhi last weekend that is 21st October to 23rd October . This was the 3rdedition of the market. It brings an unique, one of its kind al fresco food festival bring the best of Chinese, Japanese, Thai and Southeast Asian cuisines under one roof. The three-day fiesta was truly a visceral trip to the sights, sounds, smells, tastes and experiences that could easily be mistaken for the streets of a busy southeast Asian market.
True to its name, the Asian Hawkers Market is the first ever festival of this scale for Asian Food alone. Delhi is lucky to have a great variety of Pan-Asian options, and the Asian Hawkers Market is a fun and delicious celebration of our love for it – a cuisine that has since long captured the mind and imagination of our palate.
This food festival engages all the foodies’ senses beyond their palate. I was hopping from one stall to another to celebrate the Asian culinary tradition. With the portions comparatively small, I could sample different cuisines without feeling uncomfortably full. Visitors were happily enjoying many as different menus across restaurants that they might not otherwise have had a chance to visit.
The food festival had restaurateur Zorawar Kalra, who is seen judging the fifth season of cooking-based reality TV show “MasterChef India”, taking part in the fest with his restaurant Pa Pa Ya.
The other debutantes included Burma Burma, with its all-vegetarian menu, Aftab Sidhu’s Jom Jom Malay, Pan-Asian restaurant of Westin Gurgaon; Ping’s Cafe Orient, Wai Wai City, Wok Tok (The Grand New Delhi), which is making its debut with Executive Chef Nilesh Dey.
The Asian Hawkers Market also had live entertainment, including flash mobs.
Best part of the Asian Hawker market for the insane drunkyard was the bar provided by “The Lord of the Drink”
