Night Noodle Market, Alexandra Gardens

Melbourne is absolute food heaven, no wonder I love it so much!


For two weeks, Alexandra Gardens turned into Asian cuisine heaven, hosting it's fortnight of The Night Noodle Market. I ventured down three or four times, trying different stalls each time (some if which have stalls at the Victoria Night Market on a Wednesday - don't worry you haven't missed out!)

The setting was great - like a mini festival, surrounded by the sky scrappers of the city in the background. See...


With DJs, a gin tent, cider tents and ALL of those food stands, I'd probably have to say that it was my perfect environment. Is that bad?

I opted for a whole host of treats on mine and Nadia's first trip - we shared a dumpling selection from Wonderbao, prawn toast, spring rolls and satay chicken curry from a Thai stand. 

The second time was a little less satisfying - a chicken roti with questionable samosas and even more questionable mint yoghurt dressing,



The third - must better, G&T fuelled with a dish of satay chicken curry again...and a few cheeky spring rolls. I'd been banging on about it to the family friends that live here so they made a trip down with us on the final night.

DEFINITELY go next time this is on, if not for the food but for the relaxed, fun atmosphere that makes Melbourne so special in the summer.
