Asian Hawker Market

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.
