Sadly, we haven’t been able to tantalise our taste buds at the Night Noodle Markets since 2019. And we all know why that is. But not to worry, because our favourite Asian street food festival is returning this June. Get ready to dig into cosy eats before enjoying some live entertainment and a winter stroll through illuminated gardens.
The Night Noodle Markets, presented by Citi, is coming to a new location, set to bring the City Botanic Gardens to life over 12 nights. From Wednesday, June 15 till Sunday, June 26, this gorgeous riverside park will become home to several stalls and pop-ups, serving up everything from noodles and dumplings to bao and desserts. Dietary requirements will also be catered for, such as vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, Halal, and more.
Some stallholders you can expect to see at the Markets this year are Hoy Pinoy with their Filipino BBQ & street food, Flying Noodles, as well as Sydney’s Demochi Donut serving up their hybrid doughnut-meets-mochi creations, Wonderbao, Roll Up, and more. Gelato Messina will also be in on the action with deep fried Milo gelato and dulce de leche peanut butter French toast.
Once you’ve acquired your food, grab a drink from one of the pop-up bars, kick back and enjoy the live entertainment on offer, which includes traditional lion dancers. The Markets are also pet-friendly, so you can bring your pooch along for the fun.
Just like in previous years, the Night Noodle Markets don’t cost to attend, but you will need to register for a free ticket, which you can do here.
