Flavours from around the world drew hundreds of people to
the Otago Museum lawn on Saturday.
The Otago University Students Association international food
festival hosted by the university's international student
clubs served up a smorgasbord of delicious tastes and smells.
Steaming plates of exotic delicacies from India, Fiji,
Thailand, Hong Kong, Sri Lanka and Singapore were sold from
Tracey Ng (19) was one of many people to experiment with her
taste buds, trying some Fijian cuisine.
''I thought it was a good opportunity to try something a bit
different,'' the Dunedin student said.
The annual festival was moved to the museum lawn this year to
make it an open public event, OUSA Orientation event manager
Dan Hendra said.
''We had an international food festival on campus last year,
only we held it at night time, during winter. We thought it
might be a good idea this year to hold it during the day, in
summer, and have it at the museum, so everybody could join
in,'' he said.
''We're really happy with the day and the turn-out. This is
the final event for Orientation and it's a great way to
finish an amazing week.''
