Coming into summer, there are SO many events in Melbourne, I think I’ll be doubling up for the next few weeks with events that are totally worth checking out!
Night Noodle Market- Melbourne
So the Night Noodle Market shave already been running in Sydney for years. Now it is our turn! From November 18-30th, every night there are Asian street style market stalls set up for dinner including stalls from some of the best Asian restaurants in the city. Food from a range of Asian countries will be represented, you may have to make multiple dinner trips in! Newcomer to Melbourne is Gelato Messina, who make the most amazing flavours of gelato I have ever seen and tasted. (About to open a store in Fitzroy! Maybe I should have written an entire blog entry just on them! I love gelato!!)
Some of the restaurants that will have stalls at the market include Chin Chin, Paperboy Kitchen, Hoy Pinoy and Dumpling Plus. These names don’t mean much to you? Check out the full menu here as part of the Melbourne Good Food Guide. Everyone in the comments here are whinging about the prices compared to ‘street food’ in Asia which is super cheap. When you are getting together some of the best chefs and restaurants in the city I am not expecting to pay $2 for my dinner, but I think they are also missing the point of this being a bit of fun, something different. I love a bit of chaos and atmosphere! Heres hoping the weather improves so we can enjoy it fully!
Night Noodle Markets are being held in the Alexandra Gardens from the 18-30th November times vary but from around 5-9 each night with some nights starting earlier, some open later. Check out the Good Food Guide or Broadsheet Melbourne for exact times.
