March into Merivale is Merivale’s annual event (now in its seventh year) where the Merivale Group throws a large street fest style party with all of Merivale’s operations come together to celebrate its food culture and people. Every year, without fail MIM is a fantastic vibey time with great eats and a lively atmosphere. 2015 is no different and we’re already looking for to the next big thing; Just Desserts this coming Wednesday (4th March 2015)

A big part of MIM is all the staff that get together from the various Merivale restaurants and eateries. From Felix, Elloco, Palings, MsG’s, MrWongs, Est, Lorraine’s Patisseries, Sunlee Thai and more. All of Merivale is here at the Ivy. $45 nets you 8 tokens which you can use to buy various eats at the kiosks popping up and there’s plenty to be had, from savouries, sweets to cocktails.

Charcuterie Plate from Felix was a great pick with a tasty terrine and pickles.

March into Merivale’s Launch was a lot of fun and the hashtag #MarchintoMerivale on instagram showcases the range of eats and the great times Sydney had at the launch. We also checked out @patrickfriesen (that fried chicken noodle popup by Papi Chulo’s Patrick Friesen). There was some serious fried chicken and next level wontons there. They were really delicious.
