Market City has had transformation of its food offering with the launch of its 1909 Dining Precinct, featuring eight deluxe Asian eateries.
Located on the third floor of the Haymarket icon, 1909 Dining Precinct will open progressively from today, with Mr Meng Chongqing Gourmet the first restaurant to go live. Marking the second Australian outpost of this hugely popular Chinese noodle empire, Meng Fei (If You Are The One host), will deliver a relaxed dining experience, serving up a variety of famous dishes including chongqing spicy noodles with peas and pork mince and its signature deep fried spring rolls.
Seven other international and local dining concepts, which range from premium dine-in to more casual fare, will open in the coming months, with the precinct expected to be open in its entirety by mid-year.
Featured restaurants will include Dolar Shop, a Macanese hot pot restaurant chain making its Australian debut with a 200-seat restaurant, fabled restaurant YAYOI Japanese Teishoku serving up signature dishes including wagyu beef sukiyaki and unagi eel hitsumabushi, new artisanal Korean BBQ restaurant Kogi showcasing a menu of marinated meats with banchan and soju, and Chinese eatery Beijing Impression. Contemporary sushi train restaurant Fugetsu will also open, with two yet-to-be-announced concepts rounding-out the precinct.

The Precinct’s name reflects the year the heritage red-brick façade was originally erected to house Sydney’s first fruit and vegetable market. Following the transformation, it will boast a new contemporary design including a central lounge-style communal space, alongside custom restaurant fit-outs which will bring a unique range of dining experiences to life under one roof.
Market City will offer diners free undercover parking from 6pm with more than 600 bays available. It is also easily accessible by public transport including bus, light rail and train with Central and Town Hall station in close proximity.
1909 Dining Precinct, Market City will be open seven days a week until late.
