Sydney’s Night Noodle Markets Are Open!

1

GOOD FOOD MONTH has launched and we’re pretty darn happy about it here at Zanui. Hyde Park is all decked out like a traditional Asian Hawker Food Market for the iconic Noodle Markets. It’s family and Fido-friendly.

*Though you do need to keep your furpeeps on a leash and away from the stalls!

The Noodle Markets are something of an institution in Sydney with a host of Sydney’s designer and casual Asian eateries putting on short order menus to pique the palate. Last year’s favourites are back – Longrain, Mamak, Din Tai Fung, New Shanghai and more – with newbies Harajuku Gyoza, Asia Dogs, and Melbourne’s hot new eatery Wonderbao joining them.

The evening air is fragrant with spice and alive with the sounds of laughter and bottles clinking as Sydney comes out to say cheers to spring in the city. And there’s so much heaven-in-the-mouth to be had. Lose yourself a little in all the heady atmosphere. (Or download this map if that makes you come over all unsure of yourself.)

The woks were fired up last Friday (the 10th of October), and are set to spit the fat for 17 consecutive nights until October 26. There’s music and other live entertainment to take in as well as stunning light installations. With cuisine from Malaysia to Thailand, the Himalayas, Vietnam, Japan and more, the difficulty is deciding where to spend your pennies.

This is the first time I’ve seen sense in the 5-2 diet. The Noodle Markets warrants a period of starvation so you can maximise your indulgence. It’s a veritable culinary world tour. There’s momos, mango sticky rice, duck pancakes, papaya salad, wontons, laksa, roti, or pork ribs, hot chips and for the less adventurous. It’s the definition of perfection paired with bubble tea or just a glass of something bubbly.
