So yesterday I went to the night noodle markets with a few friends from my exchange in Canada.
We were a bit worried about the storm that was threatening to ruin our evening but it proved to be an empty threat and we didn’t encounter any rain during our visit to the markets.
The night noodle markets have been running for a few years now as part of the Crave Sydney Food Festival and I try to make it at least once a year as it is something different.
There are big white tents set up with red lanterns outside them, which are filled with stalls from all sorts of Asian restaurants. There is Malaysian, Chinese, Vietnamese, Thai and other types of food available to purchase. There is also live music and a bar.
As it was quite busy, we settled on the grass, using the Sydney morning herald newspapers bags we were given, as makeshift seats.
One friend and I ordered some noodles, beef and black bean, a spring roll and san choy bao. The two others ordered various dumplings and pork buns.
The atmosphere was great and there were even waiters coming around to the people seated on the grass! Now that’s good service!
If you’ve been to the noodle markets we’d love to hear what you thought of it!! Post your comments below!
