Movies that will be shown in NYC's Astor Center include Night Market Taipei, a look at the night market in China's capital city. The flick's accompanying food includes fried oysters with a wasabi-yuzu sauce, green mango with chili-lime sugar and those delish-sounding pigs' blood pops. Pork Chop, a story about a Chinese girl's secret obsessions, will come with a side of pork belly with chili caramel.
You'll be able to watch films from Ipoh in Malaysia, Ipoh Invasion - Ginger Balls and Ipoh Invasion - Popiah S.S. Ali, and taste what's on the screen, as chefs will re-create the tenden meatballs and the popular popiah, a different version of the spring roll shown in the movie. And after you see Squid Chips, you'll get to actually taste the titular snack, since chefs will be frying them up at the event, as well as a dessert burrito popular in Southeast Asia.
Tickets to Brad Farmerie’s Southeast Asian Street Food Market are available online and cost $95 in advance and $125 at the door. All food is included with the ticket price.
