Preparations for WA’s first Night Noodle Markets are underway! As part of WA Today’s Good Food Month presented by Citi and in association with Eat Drink Perth, the pungent smells of herbaceous curry, fish sauce and pork broth will be wafting through the city streets from tomorrow evening when the Night Noodle Markets is officially launched.
The Asian hawker-style pop-up markets will open tomorrow at 5pm at the Perth Cultural Centre in Northbridge for the next 12 days.
Two stallholders showcasing their bites have made it into Australia’s Top Restaurants 500 Finalists list ‐ www.australiastoprestaurants.com. The Chef driven National Restaurant Awards Program includes WA’s Low Key Chow House and Apple Daily Bar and Eating House, both gearing up to offer some tasty bite size treats at the Perth Night Noodle Markets.
Leederville’s Low Key Chow House is serving up mouth watering Asian cuisine with Mantou Buns with pork shoulder 2 ways (part crispy part soft and unctuous) as well as Kari Ayam Chicken Curry. Tasty snacks will include Chilli Candies Peanuts and Renton Lotus Chios with Wasabi Sauce.
Serving South‐East Asian cuisine and bringing fine dining to a pop up stall will be Print Hall’s Apple Daily Bar & Eating House serving Linley Valley Roast Pork Belly Kana Moo Grob, Spicy Chicken Wings with Narm Phrik Pao Caramel and Puffed Rice and Smoked Ocean Trout with Coconut, Green Paw Paw, Cashew and Nim Jam.
From Lansdale, WA will be Banana Leaf Filipino Cuisine serving up Spicy Fish Salad, Filipino Noodles, Flavoured French Fries and Pork BBQ with Rice.
Victoria’s Shallot Thai will serve Pad Thai, Green Curry Chicken with Rice and Por Pia Pag – a mouth watering Thai vegetable spring roll with a spicy herb filling. Renowned for big line ups at Eastern States Night Noodle Markets will be Filipino restaurant Hoy Pinoy serving Inihaw Na Baboy (BBQ Pork Belly Skewers) and Inihaw Na Manok (BBQ Chicken Skewers), both available with Kanin – steamed rice with Atchara.
If Yum Cha is your thing, Victoria’s Let’s Do Yum Cha will offer BBQ Pork Bun, Prawn and Chive Dumplings as well as Chicken Dim Sim and Prawn Har Gow.
Also hailing from Melbourne will be Pasar Malum (translates to Night Market) serving up delicious Chill Soft Shell Crab with Golden Baos and Nyonya Lollipos – a fried aromatic chicken on the bone coated with rich Malaysian Nyonya spices.
Queensland’s Tepinyaki Noodles will feature Japanese cuisine and Victoria’s Masak Masak will serve up Malaysian cuisine.
Joining the top line up of Asian eateries will be a few select pop‐up bars to wash down the chilli and noodles. Yalumba wineries will bring a monster 12‐metre sea container over for the event to give wine lovers an enviable sky‐high view over the 20 pop‐up food stalls. The shipping container has been transformed into a two‐storey bar, entertainment hot‐spot and dining area for the entire 12 days of the exciting Asian‐inspired foodie event.
150 year old Australian beer icon Coopers will be on site with a trendy pop-up beer garden featuring stained timber decking and barrel tables as part and an inviting open‐plan area giving guests plenty of room to move.
No bar area these days would be complete without a dedicated Cider corner, so Thatchers Cider Orchard will play host to another chill out zone, decked out in upturned half barrels and timber‐high tables, umbrellas and apple baskets.
The free event will offer modern Asian, Korean, Thai, Chinese, Vietnamese and Japanese cuisines with all menu options costing $14 or less.
