5 Things You Must Taste At The Sydney Night Noodle Markets

Sydney’s favourite food festival is back and that means noodles non stop. When the Night Noodle Markets hit Hyde Park, the venue breathes new life and the city smells delicious. Post work eats or an adventure in to gorge yourself, the hawker style market is the stuff of tastebud wonders. Bonus for those who live a pay pass existence the event is cash free, tapping hands at the ready. It’s on October 6th- 23rd, so grab a group and get there early. Don’t risk being overwhelmed for choice, here are the 5 must try delicacies on offer, you’ll be back for seconds.

#1 Hoy Pinoy – Pork Belly Skewers

Freshly smoked for 12 hours, lathered in banana ketchup glaze; pop it on a stick for manageability. Easy peasy. Hoy Pinoy are market favourites, serving up there delicious filipino skewers hot and ready to roll. The pork belly offering at this year’s noodle markets marries their famous pork belly and pops it on a skewer, so you can eat more around the park. How many skewers is too many? Buy an extra just in case.

#2 House of Crabs – Banh Mi Crab Roll

What’s cracking? Delicious crab filled banh mi that’s what. Crispy fried crab sandwiched between a crusty banh mi with all the trimmings. Pate, cucumber, fresh lemongrass come together in this sandwich of dreams. Fusing their soft shell crab recipe with Vietnamese flavours is pure genius. Beware this one makes a mess.

#3 Bao Stop – Peking Duck Fries


Bao down. Peking duck fries is one of those offerings you never knew you needed. Shoestring fries loaded with authentic peking duck, it almost sounds too good to be true. You may go to this stall with the intention of eating soft fluffy baos but keep in mind the killer fries as well.

#4 Queenies – Prawn and Mango Bammie

So if you’re not sure what a bammie is then we’re in the same boat. Queenies does Jamaican food excellently and this bammie is no different. Prawn and mango make the filling for these west indian flat pancakes and it packs a tropical punch. It’s made for sharing so go on grab a handful and share them amongst yourselves. The pulled pork is also superb, so make room for both.

#5 Messina – Matcha Do About Nothing

The tastiest, pun-filled flavours are Messina’s bread and butter. But their market offerings are always something else. This matcha soft serve brings together swirls of chocolate and green tea gelato underneath white chocolate and pistachio crunch. It’s no ordinary cone either, a green tea waffle cone plays home to all these delicious flavours. Sure there’s other flavours, but this is true oriental flavours brought to life in a hand held desert. Delish.

If you’re still hungry then make sure to dive into the other stalls too. There’s food from Sake, One Tea Lounge, Black Star Pastry, Mamak, Mama Made, Eat The Chicken, N2 Gelato and so much more.
