Good news, Sydney foodies! The Night Noodle Markets are going ahead after all. After two days of cancellations due to rain and flooding, they’ve just announced new dates. A site assessment had deemed the location unfit along with the rain and weather concerns. But not for long. The markets will now be held from Wednesday, October 12 to Sunday, October 16 at Prince Alfred Park in Surry Hills.
The Night Noodle Markets
Presented by Citi, the Sydney Night Noodle Markets were originally scheduled to return this week from October 4-9. The vibrant Asian food festival is a staple for foodies and this time round, they’re ditching their regular location of Hyde Park for the expansive, Prince Alfred Park.
Now the markets are finally set to return for five nights of food, lights, music, endless bowls of noodles and steaming hot dumplings.
So what can you expect at this year’s Night Noodle Markets?
As always the markets will be filled with various hawker-style stalls and pop-ups dishing out some truly delicious grub. Right from dumplings to melt-in-your-mouth bao, you can indulge on a variety of both sweet and savoury meals from local, national and interstate vendors.
As for vendors, Hoy Pinoy’s delicious Filipino BBQ will be on-site along with Donut Papi, Flying Noodles, Bangkok Street Food and Wonderbao. Night Noodle Market favourites like Teppanyaki Noodle, Twistto and of course, Messina will also set up shop.
For lovers of all things vegan, there’s tons on the menu from crispy tofu bao to creamy donut hot balls. Donburi Station will be back with their crowd favourite Tokyo Taco along with Toastie Smith which will make it’s night noodle market debut this year. Calabang’s crispy skewered calamari, Pho Real Vietnamese’ bowls of noodle soups and dumplings from Brendan Pang will also be on-site.
Apart from food, the markets are also home to heaps of live entertainment providing attendees with a real chance to kick back and (over) indulge.
Expect live music and lion dancers frolicking about, an exclusive beer garden and an aperol spritz kombi bar for all the drinks. Non alcoholic beer brand Heaps Normal will be on site along with Dan Murphy’s Zero% Bar. A new addition to this years markets are QR codes thanks to a partnership with Mr Yum. This will allow you to simply scan the QR code, place an order and pay which means less time queuing up and more time stuffing your face.
