Night Tripping – Championing Asian Street Food @ the St. Hotel

September 27, 2015 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm



Celebrating Melbourne’s fervour for street food, Night Tripping at the St Hotel will gather four of the city’s best hawker venues to serve their most popular dishes from bustling stalls in a popup Asian marketplace.

At dusk on 27 September, the St Hotel will be transformed into a space with all the buzz of an Asian bazaar, where guests can enjoy plates from Windsor’s favourite culinary trio; Hanoi Hannah, Tokyo Tina and Saigon Sally as well as Docklands’ Ba Noi.

In addition to the savoury asian fare, Night Tripping will be taking care of diners in the dessert department with special guest Pidapipo. Melbourne’s beloved gelateria will be providing a selection of sweet, refreshing, handmade flavours to combat those exotic spices.

After the success of Day Tripping earlier this year, the team behind the event decided they would like to welcome everyone back on a second occasion, but this time under the more gentle light of the moon and with exciting dessert option to complete the experience.

“Instead of having to go to multiple venues and fight over what to order, we’re bringing them all together in one place and picking the tastiest dish for you. With the added bonus of a party atmosphere,” says partner Simon Blacher.
Guests should expect the unexpected from this food extravaganza, with a lineup of circus acts and freaky  entertainment strutting their stuff around every corner. “Think Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas meets the Bangkok night markets”, adds Blacher.

The flavours of Thai, Vietnamese, and Japanese street food will be there for the tasting and it wouldn’t be a party without Hanoi Hannah’s mini pho, which is a hawker market favourite. Most of the dishes will be kept a secret until the stalls are in service, however Tokyo Tina has confirmed they will be plating up snack-like versions of their Tasmanian salmon tartare, crispy Skin, cucumber and nashi.

A feature DJ will be Tripping as well, playing familiar beats from a suspended wine cellar that sometimes doubles as a DJ booth. Party-goers will enjoy one dish from each restaurant and will be able to purchase beer, wine and cocktails from the bar while the sun sets in St Kilda. After the event concludes, guests can continue the party upstairs.

If Day Tripping is anything to go by, tickets will sell out fast. Tickets can be pre-purchased.
