Market City, is set to unveil its transformed food offering with the launch of its 1909 Dining Precinct, featuring a line-up of eight deluxe Asian eateries.

The redeveloped third floor of the busy centre in Sydney’s CBD will open progressively from today, with Mr Meng Chongqing Gourmet the first restaurant to go live, marking the second Australian location of the noodle chain, with seven more international and local dining concepts to open in coming months.

Featured restaurants will include Dolar Shop, a Macanese hot pot restaurant chain making its Australian debut with a 200-seat restaurant, Yayoi Japanese Teishoku, Korean BBQ restaurant Kogi and Chinese eatery Beijing Impression. Contemporary sushi train restaurant Fugetsu will also open, with two yet-to-be-announced concepts rounding-out the precinct.

“Market City has a strong heritage and reputation for providing both locals and international visitors with a great shopping and dining experience – whether it’s through access to leading retail brands, specialist ingredients, authentic Asian cuisine or the famous Paddy’s Markets,” said Market City centre manager, David Yam.

“We are excited to be evolving our offer to deliver an elevated day-to-night food experience, heralding a new era of dining at Market City and something we believe will further underscore our position as one of the city’s most authentic and vibrant Asian food destinations,” he said.

The precinct’s name reflects the year the heritage red-brick facade was originally erected to house Sydney’s first fruit and vegetable market. The launch marks the second stage of Market City’s overall transformation following the renovation of its first-floor food court in 2017. It is also home to The Eight, a modern Chinese yum cha restaurant on level three offering a variety of authentic regional delicacies.
