For the Foodie in You

Here at Macarthur Square, we have our fingers on the pulse when it comes to fashion trends. But did you know that you can also get the latest foodie trends right here at the newly-updated Fresh Food Market Hall and Dining Terrace? Here are the top foodie trends of 2017 and where to get them.

Healthy Snacks:

There’s no denying that consumers have adopted much healthier lifestyles in the past decade. In 2017, it’s all about healthy snacks, including coconut chips, roasted chickpeas and veggie chips.
Where to get it:
Avocado chips at Grill’d

Coffee alternatives:

While we all love a good cup of coffee, it’s fun to mix it up every now and then, and alternatives are making a big impact this year. Chai tea and smoothies with nuts are a delicious and filling option. If you’re after that caffeine hit, look for green tea or try the taste of matcha tea. Studies show that the nutritional value of matcha is much greater than other teas. 
Where to get it:
Matcha latte milk tea at Chatime

Fermentation:

Many cultures have been fermenting foods for centuries, and now this age-old process has finally made its way to Australia. Acting as a natural probiotic, fermented foods support digestive health. Look out for sauerkraut, kimchi, kombucha, yoghurt and miso.
Where to get it:
Miso at Sushia
Yoghurt at Soul Origin

Street food:

Inspired by Southeast Asian countries such as Vietnam and Singapore, street food has made a big impact on the food industry in the last couple of years. Bánh mì and tacos are perhaps the most popular street foods here in Australia. They are cheap, fast, and big on flavour – what more could you want?
Where to get it:
Tacos at Mad Mex
Hot dogs at Nathan’s Famous
Bánh mì at Rolld

Sustainable food:

Whether it’s fashion, agriculture or food, consumers interested in making conscious choices are looking for sustainable produce. Social responsibility is no longer a trend but a way of life. Sustainably-caught fish and sustainably-farmed vegetables are actually a lot easier to find than you might think.
Where to get it:
Sustainable produce at Inlakesh

Seaweed:

Seaweed is hugely popular in 2017, and is a fun ingredient to experiment with at home. It’s generally the foundation of ramen broths, while chefs are using it as a base in oils and fish sauces.

Sushi at Sushia
