Last weekend saw the return of popular street food team Night Tales with their latest incarnation ‘Tokyo Nights‘. We went in on Halloween to sample some of their Asian themed foody offerings all soundtracked by the AUS music crew. We gotta hand it to the Night Tales team on the production side of things as they transformed the pretty drab car park round the back of Red Gallery into a magical spot that we can see being the place to go for after work drinks and food on a Friday.

The team have converted the space into a kind of beautiful decayed urban Japenese street scene… filled with glowing lanterns, cooling fans, electric cabling and neon nude signs giving you a intviting red light district feel.

Our highlight on the food front was the Dumpling stand with its assorted selection for £6… so tasty!
Richie Hawtin’s Sake brand was about too apparently but we just stuck to Asahi’s.

A big selling point for this year’s Night Tales is the music side of things with some amazing DJs and crews all taking over the main food area and then putting on one of after parties at Red Gallery until the early hours. The AUS team played some wicked stuff that eventually had most people up and dancing so we would definitely recommend this as a night out to try with mates!
