The National Multicultural Festival is held each year in Canberra, and as far as I’m concerned it’s the best food fest in Australia. This year it ran from the 10th to the 12th of February.

Nepalese Momo (dumplings). Some were filled with lamb, some with veggies. The accompanying sauce was extremely hot.

Ethiopian. We had this as our morning tea. There’s a potato and cabbage dish, a lentil stew and I want to say key wat? And of course, blissfully crumpety injera.

OMG, the Sicilian stall! They only sold sweets and I coudn’t resist. We tried this custard filled fried morsel, yum!

All that eating makes you pretty darn thirsy. Luckily there were free water bottles and free water.

Vietnamese drinks.

Sausages on the grill…

…and a sausage dog in a bag!

As you can see, it’s a pretty popular place to be.

The line for the Loukamades (greek doughnuts) is always massive. They weren’t as deliciously crispy as last year though…

A papusa from one of the Mexican stall. A cornmeal based thick tortilla, in this case filled with cheese.

And a delicious chicken tamale.

Which is your favourite food festival?

    Hmm, so far my favourite Tassie food festival would be the recent Tas World Party multi-cultural event (yum!). That said I haven’t made it to Festivale or Taste of the Huon yet!

    We’re sort of in the middle of nowhere but we do have the Noosa Food and Wine Festival. Nothing like this though. Jealous. :)

  3. With family living in Canberra I was so sorry I was unable to time a visit so I could go to this festival! The food looks fantastic and I’m sure it would have been a day out for the taste buds with all the variety too.

    momos are not just Nepali, its Tibetan and Sikkimese too. We love eating them with a hot sauce made with Tibetan chillies which has around 8000 scovil rate, crushed with garlic and vinegar, and a noodle soup called Thukpa.
