Chomp and slurp your way through the Night Noodle Markets
The event we’ve been waiting all year for is so close we can almost taste it. The Night Noodle Markets are coming to South Bank again after a successful showing last year, bringing with it a smorgasbord of delicacies from Brisbane’s best Asian eateries.
It’s not every day that you are able to down an entire bowl of pho and follow it up with BBQ pork buns, pork belly skewers, orange carrot skin chicken dumplings and a raindrop cake. The Night Noodle Markets is one of those rare occasions where gluttony is excused and even encouraged, as more than a dozen of Brisbane’s finest Asian restaurants and street food vendors gather to offer a delectable range of dishes. From July 20–31, the Cultural Forecourt will be bedecked with lanterns and food stalls – making South Bank the place to be through the tail-end of July.
This year, the markets will see cuisine from all corners of Asia, served by popular eateries such as Fat Noodle, Harajuku Gyoza, Nest Restaurant, Taro’s Ramen, Saké Restaurant and Bar and Madame Wu. In addition to the food, there will be a series of special events, including appearances by Fat Noodle’s Luke Nguyen, patissier Adriano Zumbo and Jackson Heywood and Orpheus Pledger from Home & Away, as well as a pop-up bar from Yalumba. The markets are completely cashless, with EFTPOS facilities being the only way to pay this year. Check out the Night Noodle Markets menu and get ready to tick off as many as you can stomach.
