From Asia with Love: Melbourne’s Annual Night Noodle Markets

The Night Noodle Market is heralded as one of the best things to see and do in the city of Melbourne. It’s here that foods from all around Asia are served in a street stall manner. Some of the fancier restaurants even make
an appearance and serve up their best in the fastest way possible.


There are three sections to the night noodle market and I for one am grateful that some stores repeat themselves.

Logic is thrown out the window as you have vegan and vegetarian food mixd together with the best meat platter going around. The roving entertainment keeps the crowds enthralled from the lion dancers to the beats from Harvey Norman and the live DJs from the various marquees.

Whilst the atmosphere is pumping, what we are really here for is the food.IMG_4287

I chose to get the delicious beef noodles with mint and sliced veggies. The heaping pot of goodness was amazing and you are served quick and fast. The flavours were amazing and served to explode in your mouth at random intervals.


The meal was above satisfying and I was about to exit the market when I came across people holding on to the infamous black burger.IMG_4302 Started in Japan as a fad, this thing got a life of it’s own (and no, not in a Godzilla kinda way) and has taken the world by storm. You see the sheer blackness of the burger is designed to visually repulse us. And to then force yourself to consume something that the brain is telling you can’t be good for you is even more of a mind over matter battle. But imagine your delight when you bite into it and the brioche bun is sweet and delectable and the pulled pork divine. Heck, even the coleslaw filling was perfect and everyone knows you don’t make friends with salad.


In 2015, the night Noodle Market ran from 12-29 November. Get in on the action. Grab a few friends and make it a night out. You will not be disappointed.
