As Perth continues to find its foodie groove, an exciting new event is about to make its mark at the Perth Cultural Centre. In association with Eat Drink Perth and WAtoday Good Food Month presented by Citi, the first Night Noodle Markets will hit the city, over 12 nights from 18 – 29 March, 2015.
The Asian hawker-style pop-up markets started 16 years ago in Sydney and over the last two years the Night Noodle Markets has made its way to Melbourne, and Brisbane, with over one million people passing through the gates in 2014. The free event will also launch in Canberra this February and is now gearing up to play host to the City of Perth, making its debut this March.
Night Noodle Markets Creative Director, Gail Williams says, “Pork buns, dumplings and fried chicken…what’s not to get excited about? Three of my favourite things coming together under Perth’s balmy night skies with a backdrop of the city.”
“This event coming to Perth just proves that we are getting better and better with summer food festivals, and with so many new Chinese chow houses jumping on board there will be even more reason to celebrate.”
The event will be comprised of 25 pop-up stalls including three bars showcasing cuisines including Modern Asian, Korean, Thai, Filipino, Chinese, Vietnamese and Japanese.
Affordable bite‐size offerings starting from $10 each will be available from the best of Perth’s Asian restaurants such as Print Hall’s Apple Daily Bar & Eating House, Low Key Chow House and newcomers such as Lucky Chan’s Laundry and Noodle Bar.
Chris Rose from Low Key Chow House said, “We’re very excited to be involved in the inaugural Noodle Night Markets. Come March, Northbridge will be a buzz with great Asian flavours and Low Key is proud to be part of this first event.”
Joining Perth will an Eastern States Night Noodle Market favourite, Hoy Pinoy – showcasing its legendary Filipino fare – pig on a stick, as well as Daniel San, Lets do Yum Cha and Teppanyaki Noodles.
“After firing up the charcoals and showcasing Filipino BBQ to Melbourne and Sydney we can’t wait to head over to Perth in March. The Night Noodle Markets have been an exciting new way for us to deliver our traditional Filipino pork belly & chicken skewers in the same way you would buy and eat them on the Streets of Olongapo City in the Philippines.” Says James Meehan of Hoy Pinoy.
Night Noodle Markets will be a fantastic addition to Eat Drink Perth, which has become a highlight of WA’s culinary diary. The event is suitable for all ages so bring your family; your friends or head into the Night Noodle Markets for a sneaky after work drink and nibble.
