Want to spice up your week?

Verity Lane Market’s Chilli Week has kicked off. It’s a spicy celebration of all things chilli, with the full range of vendors serving up their hottest and most delicious chilli-inspired dishes from all over the world.

Dishes include an indulgent Dan Dan Loaded Fries of pork mince, homemade chilli oil and aioli sauce from Superbao and a chilli chicken Ayam Rarang from Rasa Rosa which is not for the faint hearted.

Pasta Artigiana will feature a fierce and fiery penne Penne all’Arrabbiata “alla tua”, translating to “your way,” where diners can select which fresh chilli they would like included in their pasta; and finally Pizza Artigiana will hero their Nduja & Cheese and Inferno pizzas with the option of adding Nonna’s famous Hot Sauce!

“Everybody wants a bit of spice in their life and chilli week is the ultimate excuse to get spicy” says Operations Manager, Ben Answerth.

“We’re on the brink of winter in Canberra and enjoying the last few weeks of warmth in the city so we thought this would be the perfect time to heat things up in our kitchens and on our plates too.”

“All of the dishes on offer for Chilli Week have strong connections of vendor’s cultural routes including Singapore, Indonesia, China and Italy,” says Answerth.

“These countries relish their spicy food and in many ways are famous for it. We can’t wait to share this experience with our customers and rouse their tastebuds.”

With every vendor offering up their spiciest dishes, the bar is no exception with a range of chilli-infused cocktails also set to make mouths water. These include a spicy passionfruit margarita with house made habanero infused agave.

“Don’t worry, if you really need a glass of milk to calm the mouth down, we’ll have that available too,” says Answerth.
