Melbourne, the famous Night Markets are back for summer and it’s an event not to miss.
A Melbourne favourite, the Night Markets have returned to the Queen Victoria Markets for the summer, and we can’t think of a better way to spend a Wednesday evening. The Night Markets have something for everyone with live entertainment, market stalls, bars and most importantly, some of the best food Melbourne has to offer. To help you out, we’ve picked five of our favourite eats (and drinks) available at the Night Markets.
Before you start your food-driven adventure (or maybe after), make sure you try a cocktail from Gin Springs. They offer a range of cider and gin-based cocktails, including a signature gin and tonic and even a cider spider. Take your pick and enjoy a moment away from the market bustle, sipping a delicious drink in their courtyard.
There’s not much we love more than halloumi, and Cypriot Kitchen has lots of it! Enjoy a taste of the Mediterranean and a healthy dose of halloumi goodness by making a stop at Cypriot Kitchen. There’s plenty of halloumi-based food options, including burgers, pita, souvlakis and even a watermelon and halloumi dish.
El Rincon specialises in Spain’s national dish, paella. Using the best and freshest produce, El Rincon serves some of the most delicious Paella this side of La Sagrada Familia starting with their very own paella base, the Sofrito. It’s definitely one of our favourites.
If you’ve ever wondered what would happen if a taco and a wonton were combined, then wonder no more. Miss Wonton infuses western and eastern cuisine to create a mouth-watering taco wonton. Coming in a range of flavours including pork belly, soft-shell crab and vegetable, Miss Wonton is as fun as it is delicious.
To finish your Night Market experience, you’ll obviously need a dessert – because there’s always room. Taki’s Balls have taken the doughnut craze one step further, serving bowls of delicious deconstructed doughnut balls. Fresh and warm, the doughnut balls are served with a choice of toppings including Nutella, salted caramel, and cinnamon sugar.
When: every Wednesday 5pm-10pm, Wednesday 20 November – Wednesday 11 March 2020, excluding Christmas and New Years Day.
