The Canberra Times Night Noodle Markets has released the sizzling menus of this year’s event, with a feast of signature dishes and creative tastes from Canberra and Australia wide favourites. Returning to Reconciliation Place for an extended stint of 11 nights due to popular demand, from 28 February until 9 March, the air will be filled with spicy, salty and sweet aromas as Reconciliation Place is transformed into a bustling Asian street food festival.
It will once again bring together the best combination of Australia’s multicultural flavours, celebrating and fusing cuisines as locals embark on a vibrant flavour journey from across Asia. Tasting new creations, dynamic flavours and signature dishes from twenty-five delicious hawker-style stalls from around the country with a range of gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan options available; locals are sure to be left satisfied as they enjoy live music, DJs and lion dancing. The markets are also cash-free (all major cards welcome) so guests can spend less time queuing and more time enjoying the night.
Local-picks Korbq, Donburi Station and Superbao will be joined by crowd-favourites Hoy Pinoy, Gelato Messina and Flying Noodles along with exciting newcomers Demochi Donuts, Grill & Spice, The Pham Sisters, Chinese Dim Sum King and Raijin Noodles & Dumplings.
