Night Noodle Markets

Last night the bunnie family hopped to South Bank for the launch of Brisbane's much anticipated Night Noodle Markets. Decorated with colourful paper lanterns, the markets have hawker-styled food stalls lined one next to another offering a wide range of popular Asian dishes. To prove the markets' popularity, there were people everywhere queueing for food (8,000 I am told), and I don't blame them with an aromatic smell constantly lingering in the crisp winter air, it's sure hard to resist.

To thoroughly enjoy the markets, I think you need a plan of attack, or what I call, the mighty plenty plan:
  • plenty of cash;
  • plenty of time (see below);
  • plenty of patience (I waited 40 minutes for my cheese okonomiyaki ($12)); and
  • plenty of comfort (although wearing your best pair of Loubies with black leather miniskirt may look hot, standing in a long queue waiting for food may make you regret that decision).

So you've had some food and you are after some drinks to wash it all down so you should definitely check out the enchanting Tanqueray Gin Garden. It's hard to miss with its mysteriously beautiful design. And while you're there to relax in the fantastic ambience (I loved the live music!), why not sip on a refreshing Tanqueray and Tonic? You can score your free Tanqueray and Tonic at the markets by following @tanquerayginau on Instagram and tag your photos! Further information can be found at the garden.

The Night Noodles Markets is one of the highlights of the Good Food Month and the markets operate from July 17 to July 27 with free entry.
