The Block
This is the new Annandale. Yes, we love our quiet and crowded hole-in-the-wall Korean restaurants and the loud and flashy K-Pop-blaring barbecue spots, but The Block is the beginning of something else. The food hall stocks vendors with modern iterations of Asian food, like Balo Kitchen’s genius conflation of pho and French dip, and an ice cream shop, Munch, that sandwiches scoops between doughnuts and sells off-menu and Instagram-friendly activated-charcoal cones with coconut ash inside. There’s also customizable poke bowls, a Thai food stand and a craft cocktail bar.
