Good Food Month’s Night Noodle Markets return to Sydney

BBQ pork skewers, bao with delicious pork, beef or chicken fillings, charcoal BBQ pork buns, mango sago cake, and a quirky flavoured crème brulee gelato made with liquid nitrogen are just some of the amazing dishes that will be served at Good Food Month’s Night Noodle Markets which returns to Hyde Park Sydney from October 5 to 22, 2017


There will be over 40 sizzling food stalls serving up the best street food from across Asia every night of the week.  


The Night Noodle Market’s will also feature family-friendly live music, DJs, and LED-lit dancing dragons. The always popular savoury dishes by Mr Bao. Hoy Pinoy, and Let’s Do Yum Cha will return together with the bespoke dessert creations by Gelato Messina, Black Star Pastry and N2 Gelato.


Mr Bao will be spoiling us with Gua Bao Trio (which will consist of crackling pork belly, Karaage chicken, Korean BBQ Beef baos), crackling pork fried, and pork belly bao-less Sanga with fries.


Hoy Pinoy will be lighting up their charcoal BBQs and serving up their ever so popular BBQ pork and chicken skewers. Their pork skewers are marinated in Pandan, lemongrass and garlic, and roasted for many hours.


Let’s Do Yum Cha will have an array of yum cha treats including Lo Mai Gai (sticky rice with chicken wrapped in lotus leaves), vegetarian spring, rolls, chicken dim sims, vegetarian dumplings, BBQ pork bun, prawn and chive dumplings and custard buns.


Gelato Messina will be serving up their unusual gelato creations of O-No-Giri (green tea gelato and pistachio mousse dipped in rice bubbles and white chocolate) and Kamikaze Katsu Sandwich (a deep fried gelato Katsu sandwich made with Sudachi lime gelato coated in red velvet cake and Panko crumbs sandwiched in fluffy white bread with Yuzu sauce).


N2 Gelato will be surprising us with an Asian flavoured crème brulee gelato made with liquid nitrogen.


And my favourite bakery, Black Star Pastry, will be launching their mango sago cake and their cherry tiramisu which is made with Brand’s Laira Coonawarra wine at the markets.


The markets will again be cash-free, so you’ll be able to spend less time queuing and more time saving.  


The Night Noodle will be open from Monday and Tuesday from 5pm – 9pm, Wednesday and Thursday from 5pm – 10pm, Friday from 5pm – 11pm, Saturday from 4pm-10pm and Sunday from 4pm – 9pm

Good Food Month ends on a high note with the inaugural Spring Social event

Sydneysiders attended a 1920’s garden party inspired by the Hamptons to enjoy: gourmet picnic food; vintage lawn games such as croquet, jumbo chess and bocce; acoustic melodies from the main stage; and their favourite Pimms cocktail.

It was a unique picnic held at the recently launched, Centennial Homestead. Catering was by the Eastern suburb’s best including: renowned chef and restaurateur Matt Moran, who cooked up some of Chiswick’s favourites; the boys behind Three Blue Ducks (Darren Robertson and Mark LeBrooy) who were on the barbecue; Centennial Homestead’s own Rodrigo Do Vale who delivering some of his house specialties; and dessert wizards Alistair Wise (Sweet Envy) and Andy Bowdy who took my taste-buds to the next level.

The food served from these top chefs included: Piri Piri Chicken with spiced yoghurt, chickpeas, tomatoes and preserved lemon or BBQ whole pumpkins with mixed grain kraut & baba ghanoush from Three Blue Ducks, Sydney rock oysters iwht natural or finger fresh lime or warm pastrami bun, with English mustard  Chiswick pickle from Chiswick; Amy Winehouse Sundae and Andy Bowdy Sundae or a dessert plate of vanilla slice, apple and chedder pie, pineapple and Jatz pie from Andy Bowdy and Alistair Wise; prawn cocktail roll, Yamba king prawns, herb mayonnaise on milk bun or beef cheek cottage pie, braised beef cheek in red wine, and almond crusted mash potato from Centennial Homestead.

The event was hosted by master of ceremonies, Kris Smith, and an entertainment line-up included a special swing repertoire performed by Rob Mills and comedy by comedian Joel Creasey.

Good Food Month has ended in Sydney but it is on in Melbourne this month.
