Your guide to Brisbane's Night Noodle Markets

14 July 2017

Dig out your jumpers and warm up your tummies – the Night Noodle Markets are returning to Brisbane! This year’s event is on from 19-30 July 2017 and as always, you’ll find it at South Bank’s bustling Cultural Forecourt. Read on to plan your visit.

Where to eat
Whether you’re a savoury fiend or a sweet-tooth all the way, you’ll find a palate-pleasing dish at the Markets. 

The out-of-towners
Exotic, insta-worthy food is what food festivals are all about! The crew at Night Noodle Markets get this, so they’re bringing a stack of eateries north to mark the occasion. This includes Bao Stop, Blackstar Pastry and N2 Gelato, Hoy Pinoy, Let’s Do Yum Cha, Donburi Station, Poke Bear, Poklol, Sambal Kampung, Shallot Thai, SpanThai, Taiwan Noodle House, Twistto, Little Kyoto and Waffleland.

The local heroes
A few firm favourites that already have already set up shop locally will also be operating special pop-ups at the event – think Chur Burger, Gelato Messina, Harajuku Gyoza, Vintaged Bar + Grill, Junk, NomNom Korean Eatery, Phuc Deli-Viet West End, Zagyoza and Teppanyaki Noodles.

Dishes not to miss
