Melbourne Night Noodle Market

18 Nov 2014

After the success of last year, the popular Night Noodle Market is back in Melbourne again, bigger than ever - with a new location and a lot more stalls!  The best thing about the night markets is the plethora of hawker style food, great bar areas and the pretty lighting....I'm a massive sucker for some fairy lights!  

We went along on Sunday night to check it out, I went prepared for the huge crowds and long wait times like last year, but I was pleasantly surprised.  The organisers have definitely learnt from last year's mistakes, and this year, the market has been spread over 3 areas at Birrung Marr, has double the stalls and plenty of seating for everyone.  Loved it!  We are planning to drop by at least a few more times during the 17 night event.

Returning this year are the ever popular fine dining restaurants with stalls - Chin Chin, Izakaya Den and Longrain. Gelato Messina, Wonderbao and Malaysian restaurant Mamak have also returned.

Some of the new stalls joining the noodle market this year include:

  • Kong: Serving up ginger and soy-dressed soba salad with pickled walnuts and steamed-then-roasted pork belly.
  • Red Spice Road: South-East Asian food with a modern Australian twist.
  • Charlie Dumpling: Makes its debut with a specially-made pork and ginger dumpling with black bean, chilli and lime, and fried chicken ribs.
  • Mr Miyagi: Think Japanese fusions, including Nori Tacos and Miyagi Fried Chicken.

Where: Birrarung Marr (near Federation Square), Melbourne
Cost: Free entry; dishes from $5-$15
