Teage Ezard and Gingerboy team up for new hawker-style pop up (Sydney)

The Star Sydney are certainly putting their dedicated pop-up restaurant space to good use. Within the past 12 months this space within the property’s food hub has seen temporary digs from the likes of Chase Kojima with Sokyo Ramen, followed by Singapore Hawker Style, and more recently Luke Nguyen’s Street Food. Now Teage Ezard of The Star’s BLACK Bar & Grill has taken over the space, calling in Melbourne’s Gingerboy for a collaboration going by the name of Gingergirl.

From this Thursday, Gingergirl will be operating a stone’s throw away from the likes of Gelato Messina and Din Tai Fung, sliding into the pop-up with their own interpretation of Asian hawker-style street food with dishes inspired by Gingerboy’s famously experimental menu.

“I’m really excited to take over The Star’s pop-up restaurant space this summer, to bring the energetic pace and vibrant taste of Gingerboy to foodies in Sydney”, said Ezard. “Many people know I find huge inspiration in the bold flavours of Southeast Asian street food, so I can’t wait to follow Luke and Chase in offering this style of experience at The Star”.

Non-alcoholic beverages such as green bubble tea punch, a Vietnamese espresso, and a slushie that mixes coconut water, ginger, watermelon, passionfruit and lime, will be available to help wash down street inspired dishes designed to mirror summer flavours. These include a cold noodle salad with squid, drunken chicken, sesame, paw paw and bandit dressing; yellow curry of blue eye with lychee and mango salad; Wagyu brisket with peanut tamarind caramel and hot & sour coconut salad; and red duck leg curry with basil and coconut cream.

Gingergirl will be open daily from this Thursday 15th December until the end of March 2017.
