Melbourne’s CBD is set to welcome a hybrid food hall and dark kitchen concept with the launch of Ezistreat.

The venue is slated to open in early 2022 and aims to revolutionise the dining experience with high-tech, minimal-intervention technology and service systems.

“We want Ezistreat to be a platform to provide an incubator of new hospitality concepts in Melbourne,” says Founder Seyun Kim.

“We see Ezistreat as being the optimal location for up-and-coming chefs and food entrepreneurs to test and refine their concept or existing brands wanting to diversify their offering, all within a space that harnesses creativity.”

Ezistreat will be home to 15 different dark kitchens with its own drive-through system for delivery drivers.

The food hall will have 11 casual eateries fitted out with a self-service beer, wine and cocktail bar along with a café that will provide breakfast, coffee and lunch.

Under supervision, customers will have a prepaid card to purchase and pour beverages themselves.

The venue will also host a variety of themed night markets throughout the year with the likes of Albert Lim from Vic Market’s Asian Night Market and Noodle Markets.

“We have seen how successful the model has been overseas and after adapting certain aspects for a local audience, we can’t wait to welcome vendors and customers through our doors,” says Kim.

Ezistreat will operate seven days a week for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
