STRESSED about exams? Take a study break and visit Melbourne’s first ever Night Noodle Market on at Alexandra Gardens from 18-30 November. By Rebecca Di Nuzzo.
Noodle markets are an Asian staple. Most countries have their own fantastically vibrant and buzzing version, where you can get a bowl of deliciously warm noodles for a couple of dollars.
Well now, Melbourne joins the club with its first ever night noodle market.
Fill your belly with glorious morsels of Asian street food. Vendors won’t just be serving noodles. There’ll be fluffy pork buns and fresh roti, steaming plates of dumplings and Asia-inspired ice-creams all from some of the city’s best restaurants like Wonderbao and Izakaya Den.
Wash it all down with a tension relieving drink from one of the four outdoor bars serving beer, cider, gin and wine. And don’t forget to soak up the buzzing market atmosphere and funky DJ music. Before you know it, you’ll find yourself refreshed and exam ready.
Entry into the markets is free, with the festivities kicking off at 5pm weekdays and 4pm on weekends.
The market will feature more than 25 food stalls. If it proves half as popular as its Sydney counterpart, it’s a safe bet it’ll become a standout feature of Melbourne’s events calendar for years to come.
So what are you waiting for? Grab a friend and enjoy a taste of home and some great cheap eats!
