Must Visit Night Noodle Market Melbourne
Do you love asian food as much as I do? If you live in Melbourne you need to visit the Night Noodle Market Melbourne, it’s on until November 30th in a much bigger location than last year across the other side of the Yarra. So many of Melbourne’s best asian restaurants have set up stalls there. You’ll find it by following your nose to Birrarung Marr where there’s a huge range of asian hawker style food stalls and food trucks. Cuisines represented range from Korean, Vietnamese, Chinese, Indian to Malaysian, Burmese and Nepalese.
We went along on a sunny Tuesday night last week. Nick and I arranged to meet Dave an old friend from high school there. He was early, we were late, as we decided to drive, not a great idea, public transport is a much better option.
The atmosphere was upbeat and exciting with lots of Melburnians out enjoying the sunny weather and indulging in some tasty food. We started off with some meat skewers from Hoy Pinoy then climbed the hill for some Sliders and Caramelised Pork from Chin Chin, finishing off with dessert from Gelato Messina and coffee from St Ali.
If you’re feeling inspired here’s some links to asian recipes on my blog you can enjoy making. Chicken and Vegetable Dumplings, Healthy Fried Rice and Beef Stirfry, Vietnamese Chicken Salad and Nasi Goreng. If you live in Melbourne, I hope you get the chance to go along to the Night Noodle Market Melbourne it’s a great night out and one of the Food Month events I really look forward to. The hours are Monday to Tuesday 5pm to 9pm, Wednesday 5pm to 10pm, Thursday to Friday 5pm to 11pm, Saturday 4pm to 10pm and Sunday 4pm till 9pm.
