Peel Street is about to be transformed into a giant tasty Asian street food festival.

The first edition of Festival Streetfood Montreal will play host to 30 of the city’s Asian restaurants, aiming to “seamlessly blend the best qualities of food festivals and traditional Asian night markets.”

The theme of the inaugural event will be centred around South East Asian cuisine and will feature other delectable creations from Taiwan, Japan, Korea, and China.

“Our goal is to promote local Asian cuisine while offering our take on what a Montreal night market experience should be,” reads the festival’s Facebook page.
