Eastwood City is encouraging foodies and homemakers to spice up their dishes with finds from Eastwood Mall’s Weekend Spice Souk, happening on Aug. 14 – 16 and 21 – 23 at the second floor of Eastwood Mall.
Mallgoers can shop for a wide variety of herbs, spices and sauces at this weekend event. At Casanova Garden, guests can pick up potted and cut herbs, like sweet basil, tarragon, lemon mint, choco mint, Vietnamese coriander, lemon balm and more while those who are into spices can purchase turmeric powder from India, chili powder, garlic powder, paprika, oregano powder and more at R2R Trading.
For those who like it hot, chili sauces are up for grabs at Hot Mama. Guests can also experience chili in an all new way with Dielle’s Chili wines or try a variety of chilli dishes like chilli fries and nachos at Chili Pod.
Eating healthy can get even tastier as guests can dress up their salads with a variety of dips and dressings from Whisk. Mallgoers can choose from Lemon Tarragon Vinaigrette, Soy Ginger dressing, and even Strawberry and Basil Jam or Spiced Mango Jam. For organic vegetables, guests can check out Emporium Antipolo.
Mexican food lovers can get delicious dips from Tagueria Real’s Salsa Cartel and choose from offerings like Roasted Red Salsa, Habanero Carrot Salsa and more. Those craving a Mexican snack can also visit Hijo D’ Pita for tacos, burritos and the delectable El Chuapacabra – ground chicken wrapped in bacon.
Sugar and spice is a delicious combination too and Eastwood’s Weekend Spice Souk has plenty of spiced-up desserts for guests to try. Unit 16 Sweets has flavoured chocolates like chili and sea salt. Those who want a cool treat can stop by Buccino’s Ice Cream Experiment for unusual (and unusually good!) flavor combinations like Dark Chocolate Olive Oil and Muscovado with Bacon.
The Weekend Spice Souk kickstarts the beginning of a series of food events in Eastwood City as part of Eastwood City’s Food Artistry Campaign. Launched last July, the Food Artistry campaign hopes to encourage foodies and amateur chefs to create their own art on a plate. Mallgoers can look forward to different food fairs with exciting themes in the coming months.
