City of Greater Bendigo, Media Release, 9 June 2021
Bendigo’s newest food precinct, Lyttle Eat Street, officially launches on the footpaths at Lyttleton Terrace in the city centre to celebrate and indulge in delicious global street food this Saturday, June 12 from 8.30am to 2.30pm.
Fourteen local businesses from Lyttleton Terrace have joined forces to create Lyttle Eat Street, an initiative to create a new ‘street food vibe and neighbourhood’ in the city centre.
It is the first in a winter-long series, Slow Smoking Saturdays, to entice more people to visit the area on weekends to enjoy unique dishes and drinks.
The Lyttle Eat Street launch will serve up slow cooked and flame-grilled flavours together with Asian street food, BBQ demonstrations, ‘try before you buy’ tastings and live music.
Greater Bendigo City Council Mayor Cr Jen Alden said the City was delighted to support the Lyttle Eat Street initiative.
“We very much welcome the collaboration between businesses at Lyttleton Terrace who have come together to make Lyttle Eat Street a reality,” Cr Alden said.
“The City’s support for the initiative included the development of the Lyttle Eat Street logo, the installation of a temporary new outdoor dining area called a skiplet, landscaping and help with the necessary footpath permits for street trading.
“Lyttle Eat Street is a wonderful idea and precincts like this provide an opportunity to showcase our status as a City of Gastronomy and encourage more people to explore new food neighbourhoods.
“Street food precincts bring a new vibrancy and draw people to the city centre in fun and engaging ways and importantly help support our local businesses during this difficult time, so shop local and enjoy Lyttle Eat Street.”
The Lyttle Eat Street initiative is part of the Bendigo’s ‘IGNITE’ Winter Gastronomy campaign promoted through the City.
