Night Noodle Markets, Melbourne

Night Noodle Market is part of Good Food Month, Australia’s largest food festival.

Over 17 summer nights, the banks of the Yarra River are alive with the delicious aromas of authentic Asian food. You’ll find fare from Korea, Vietnam, China, Japan, Thailand, Philippines, India, Malaysia and Burma among the 50 food stalls.

If you love Asian food, you can’t miss it. I tasted some spicy chicken skewers and naan bread from one Indian stall, popcorn chicken from a Korean stall, a delicious spicy salad from Red Spice Road, and some sweet mini pancakes.
