Chef Teage Ezard is preparing to launch a new Asian hawker-style, street food pop-up at The Star Sydney, called Gingergirl.
Launching on 16 December, Gingergirl is the work of Ezard’s BLACK Bar & Grill team, together with that of his Melbourne restaurant, Gingerboy.
Open for lunch and dinner seven days a week until the end of March 2017, Gingergirl draws inspiration from Gingerboy's experimental menu and follows three pop-ups at The Star over the last year: Luke Nguyen's Street Food, Sokyo Ramen by Chase Kojima, and Singapore Hawker Style.
“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,” Ezard said.
“Many people know I find huge inspiration in the bold flavours of south east Asian street food, so I can't wait to follow Luke and Chase in offering this style of experience at The Star.”
The Gingergirl menu includes cold noodle salad with squid, drunken chicken, sesame, paw paw and bandit dressing; yellow curry of blue eye, lychee and mango salad; and Wagyu brisket with peanut tamarind caramel and hot and sour coconut salad.
The menu will be accompanied by a non-alcoholic beverages list, including green bubble tea punch; Vietnamese espresso; and the 'Tropic Thunder' slushie with coconut water, ginger, watermelon, passionfruit and lime.
Gingergirl will be open Sunday to Monday from 11.30am–9.00pm; Tuesday to Thursday from 11.30am–10.30pm and Friday to Saturday from 11.30am–11.00pm.
