Allow us to introduce you to Gingerboy, the mysterious culinary genius that, when he's not cooking up a storm in Melbourne, is touring the streets of southeast Asia to gather inspiration for your next meal.

The man behind Gingerboy? Chef Teage, is a well-travelled individual who has transformed his travels around Vietnam, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore and Hong Kong into this winning restaurant. Inspired first and foremost by the street markets there, he has used all colour, texture and occasional chaos to inform the design of Gingerboy. With no unifying theme, the restaurant shifts and shapes as you progress through with showstopping light features, textured walls and neon displays affording the place its sparkling and unpredictable personality.

So, what have Chef Teage's travels rustled up? To begin, experience the street stalls with snacks like scallops in a black bean sauce, crispy pork belly with a soybean glaze and more exclusive offerings like confit ocean trout with a smoked crème fraiche and a touch of mustard. Other than that, steamed dumplings lend themselves very well to sharing.

The sharing vibe continues - as is always the case at street food stalls - with delicacies from all over the region. From Thailand comes the red duck curry, from Melbourne's own shore comes the roasted hapuka with a chilli jam, and from Vietnam a wagyu fillet with sweet tamarind and a banana blossom salad.

Thanks to Gingerboy, Asia is only an order away.
