Be spoilt for choice with a food experience as we have the BEST OF THE BEST food stalls in Melbourne at the Supper Market

This year we have a SPECIAL SECTION called the FOOD TRUCK SQUARE! It’s a new area that we’ve opened up where there will be four food trucks gathered within a concentrated area, nearby there is a lovely court yard that you can picnic next to once you’ve purchased your food.

This year’s line up is pretty impressive, they are all on top of their game in their area of specialty foods/dishes:

Himalayan sherpa logo

Huge following for Himalayan Sherpa food !

Himalayan Sherpa has grown a fan base at the Supper Market, each year their popularity grows as their food is REALLY DELICIOUS! They serve up specialty Nepalese food from the heart. They also differentiate themselves by using free range chicken and organic products in their dishes including their signature chicken momo (dumplings), famous char-grilled chicken sekuwa (skewers) and delicious vegetarian biryani (aromatic rice). Traditional street style food eaten in Nepal, freshly prepared onsite. Try the satay prawns or famous dumplings.

Sha – the chef – has worked at the Hyatt Hotel for five years, and then opened a restaurant with her husband Pramen until recently. They decided that they would concentrate on the catering business and thus the Himalayan Sherpa restaurant closed in late 2012 (had been operating in Richmond for ten years) and many of their regular customers were very sad. But there is good news! They offering catering services to the home and office! To have them come to you, check them out at:
