Melbourne Night Noodle Markets: The Top 5
Food lovers unite, ’tis the season to be eating.
The long awaited and much-loved Night Noodle Markets presented by Good Food Month and Citi, will finally reach the shores of foodie-heaven, Melbourne, this Thursday evening. Once again transforming Birrarung Marr into a bustling Asian street food-fest, the Night Noodle Markets promises 18 nights of groundbreaking food with a few surprises. To make the lives of fellow food-lovers easy, we’ve shortlisted our Top 5 from this years markets, highlighting a range of food experiences and flavours!
One does not simply visit the Night Noodle Markets and NOT eat a PUFFLE. While the queues for the delicious Hong Kong-inspired egg waffles may be as long as the Great Wall of China – it’s well and truly worth the wait. Somewhat a taco that mutated into a foodie’s dream, PUFFLE’s are a must on your Night Noodle Market bucketlist.
One of the all-time crowd favourites, Mr. Miyagi knows what the people want and knows how to deliver. This year their Truffle Wagyu Beef Japa-Dawg, Peking Duck Japa-Dawg and Parmesan & Pesto Japa-Dawg are on offer, alongside their Instagram-worthy and surprisingly delicious Mr. M’s Wasabi Fries – fries coated in ramen seasoning, wasabi mayo and crunched wasabi peas.
Long forgotten is the standard sandwich of your schooling days. The sandwich is now a gourmet foodie treat, often featuring unexpected ingredients and a range of luxe flavours. This year ZOMG Sando joins the Night Noodle Markets to bring along some of those luxe sandwich vibes – we recommend the Pork Sando for a mouth-watering feed.
Oriental Tea House x David's
New comers to the Night Noodle Market scene, Melbourne institution Oriental Tea House is bringing along dumplings, dumplings and maybe a few more dumplings. Alongside their many and delicious dumpling choices, the team is offering Shanghainese Sticky Pork Belly & Chat Potatoes, Salt & Pepper Calamari and everyone’s favourite, Peking Duck Wraps.
Son In Law
Another exciting new addition to the Melbourne 2018 Night Noodle Markets is Son In Law, a casual Thai food destination sporting a flash of fun and fire. They’re offering Spicy Deep Fried Chicken Ribs (yes, you read that correctly) topped with house made seasoning and classic Thai sauce; as well as Soft Shell Crab & Prawns in Dry Green Curry.
And once you’ve made you way through each and every one of these items (you can do it!), why not head over to the Pimm’s Garden Bar or the Amplify Kombucha Bar offering bottomless Kombucha on the house, the group’s first time with the Melbourne Night Noodle Markets.
Remember to eat wisely and if necessary, go back for seconds – you do have three weeks…
