Night Noodle Markets
Hyde Park South
Sydney CBD (October Annually)

On a quick visit through the massively successful Night Noodle Markets in Hyde Park this year the first visit was to BaoStop Sydney. They had some great combinations. I tried the lobster regou boa - it was amazing. There was heaps of Singapore chilli lobster in it too and great flavours. It had spring onion salad added and it was all put into a sweet bun finished with five spiced watermelon radish chips.

The mob behind BaoStop don't have a permanent home yet - but hopefully they do soon because their food is great.
Next visit was to the well known Melbourne establishment of Wonderbao.

This place is located in Melbourne's CBD and is hugely popular there - and as a result they were equally busy here in Sydney with everyone wanting to see what their food was like.

I had a twice cooked pork belly gua bao which came with pickled carrots and daikon, cucumber and it was dressed with hoisin sauce.

Oh yum. This was great too. The baos at these markets were certainly a highlight.

We're visiting Melbourne soon and fully intend to drop by and try some more of the Wonderbao range!

Final stop on a whirlwind visit was to the Gelato Messina stall. Yes it probably isn't an expected fit with Night Noodle Markets but these guys got into the swing of things with some crazily inspired Asian influenced gelato that as usual wowed the visitors there.

I had a huge Street Hawker. It had a thick and rich lime and chocolate brownie as its base, topped with peanut gelato, coconut and caramel jam, big chunks of fortune cookie clusters and a giant peanut cookie protruding from it all. These desserts were massive and great value.

Next year we'll try to visit more places - but we'll certainly be back at these fantastic noodle markets!
