Not much of a foodie? Or just scared of the thought of gaining too much weight before the Summer hits? Well you gotta let October ‘Good Food Month‘ be your excuse!
Sydney Morning Herald’s Good Food Month is held for only 1 month every year. It is Australia’s largest Food Festival which presents a month full of appetising food and drinks from Sydney’s best chefs, restaurants, farmers and food producers (http://sydney.goodfoodmonth.com/home).
Night Noodle Markets is the biggest event of the month, attracting approximately 200,000 individuals to enjoy some authentic Asian food along within the vibrant atmosphere.
Where: Hyde Park North, Sydney
When: Oct 9-12, 14-19, 21-26 [Mon-Tues: 5-9pm; Wed 5-10pm; Thurs-Fri: 5-11pm; Sat 4-10pm]
So you still have next week to check this place out so hurry! Check the website out for more event details such as The Breakfast Club, Let’s Do Lunch ($38 lunches), Good Dinner Under $30 & Let’s Do Dessert ($20 desserts) – majority at some of Sydney’s top restaurants!
You’re at the noodle markets for 2 things- atmosphere & the food !
Since it was dark, the pictures did not exactly do justice for the taste but hopefully you can still make out what the picture captured.
I must admit the chicken was well worth it. I’ve never tried satay chicken with Thai peanut sauce but this combination was excellent! Salad was pretty boring, no dressing plus it was like they had just picked it out from the gardens and layered it beneath the chicken but still, well worth the $10 paid.
These curry puffs were quite standard and wasn’t as crunchy as I would have expected.
These traditional pork buns were quite nice. The usual xa xiu fillings.
So the below box only cost$5. At the time of purchase (8.30pm), this store decided to put up a 50% off all food sign, so seeing this, we decided to try some. The 50% was for a reason, it was probably late already so the food was not fresh whatsoever. It was quite dry and bland and the prawn crackers (despite free), was dry and had been exposed for so long it no longer was crunchy anymore.
Overall, the Night Noodle markets atmosphere was great, and the food we ordered turned out better than we expected. The prices for food here are a little bit more expensive than your usual markets food, but it’s only once a year- so well worth trying 🙂
