Mochi Donuts, Gravity-Defying Noodle Skewers: Here’s A List of Brisbane’s Noodle Night Markets

This winter, Night Noodle Markets is finally back for 12 nights of culinary delicacies after sitting out the last two years for obvious reasons. That means it’s time for plenty of delicious stuff on sticks, pasta bowls, bao’s and fancy desserts, all in the event’s new home at the Brisbane City Botanic Gardens.

While you’ll head to a different place to get dishes from street vendors between Wednesday 15th June and Sunday 26th June, this is the case of a new location and the same delicious result. And if you haven’t already got your appetite just thinking about the event in general, the markets have just revealed the full list of stalls that will showcase all kinds of foods.

In total, 16 restaurateurs will set up shop, all so you can eat everything from chicken karaage pasta to fried milo gelato. Expect a bunch of pop-up bars too, and an overall crowded and noisy atmosphere.

If you’ve been to Night Noodle Markets before, you can start to get excited about a few of the returning favorites – Hoy Pinoy, Bangkok Street Food, Flying Noodles, and Gelato Messina. That means grilled Filipino street food will be on the menu, including pork skewers in a glaze of banana ketchup and chicken skewers in a traditional soy glaze. So the thai will be stuffed with prawns and braised pork belly noodles, too.

As for Messina, they serve up gelato and Asian-inspired desserts such as their famous mango tarts (which stuff mango and vanilla syrup into a mango crepe), the aforementioned fried milo gelato (which also includes Messinatella pudding and Oreo crumble) and Hong Kong French toast (made with dulce de bread Lychee and French Toast Peanut Butter Bread).

Another big draw card, and a timer for the first time to Brisbane’s Noodle Night markets: Demochi Donuts. A Sydney favorite for its mochi donuts, she’ll serve it up with original honey and cinnamon flavors, drizzled with milk chocolate drizzle and candy drizzle (also to show Brissie all the hype about the South).

Other patriotic stall owners making their own Malaysian mayo, wonderpao, kalabang, roll-up and towisto, which will make fried radish buns, Korean fried chicken, gua bao, sweet custard, calamari, duck rolls and duck and potato twists as part of their menus . From local favorites Teppanyaki Noodles, Raigen, Stone & Copper, Stone & Cooper, and Steamed Stem, you’ll also be able to enjoy fried yakisoba noodles, teriyaki chicken skewers, Karaage chicken noodles, bang bang chicken, chicken satay dogs, and rainbow dumplings.

On the list of drinks already announced: Gage Roads Beer Garden, Aperol Spritz Kombi Bar and Dan Murphy’s Zero% Bar, with the latter following from Melbourne’s bottle-chain alcohol-free venue and spewing only non-drunk drinks. And there will be Heaps Normal non-alcoholic beer, Rekorderlig wine and Naked Wines vinegar.

Also, if you’re keen on spending more time dining and less queuing, Mr. Yum is also available to let you order over your phone – skip all the queues, pick food from different vendors and pay in one transaction.

The Brisbane Night Noodle Markets 2022 will take place from Wednesday 15 June to Sunday 26 June at Brisbane City Botanic Gardens, 147 Alice Street, Brisbane City. For more details and to sign up for a free ticket, head over to the event’s website.
