“Epicurean: Devoted to the pursuit of sensual pleasure, especially to the enjoyment of good food and comfort”…. A definition has never been more apt; for the Epicurean food hall is the perfect place to pursue the sensual enjoyment of good food.
We have all been hit with hunger pangs as we scurry about our busy day and have wasted time thinking where or what to eat. It helps when all our choices are in one place. Enclosed in large skylit space, the Epicurean food hall is a collection of small independent restaurants serving a wide selection of world foods including Mexican, Italian, Turkish, Greek, Brazilian, Spanish, French, Asian fusion and Japanese Temaki! If ever there was a place to get you salivating, this is it.
This is not the place to come for a romantic date it must be said. But with its location just off the northside shopping district and close to the infamous ‘Halfpenny’ bridge, it’s in a prime spot for afternoon sustenance, be you a tourist or a working stiff. It helps that the prices are some of the best in town, with special deals regularly.
My personal favourite of what is on offer is the gorgeous burritos from ‘Saburrito’, but I have a thing for Mexican flavours. I have tried nearly all the other restaurants, and have discovered some favourites on each menu. I say nearly as they have just added a Spanish eatery ‘Valencia’. I can’t wait to give it a go!
