If previous years have been anything to go by, the Sydney Night Noodle Markets – much like the Melbourne Night Noodle Markets – are going to turn it on for food lovers.

As always, in Hyde Park from 4-21 October it makes one of the biggest events of Sydney Good Food Month. 

Complete with forty sizzling hawker-style stalls showcasing Asia’s best cooking techniques and flavours, the Night Noodle Markets will turn it on with the likes of Mr. Bao, Chat Thai, Mr Miyagi and Wonderbao (both coming to Sydney from Melbourne for the first time), Chur Burger, Donut Papi, Gelato Messina and Black Star Pastry.

And here’re the best hawkers to get your fill from for the whole three weeks:

For a taste of Thailand: Khanom Jeen Nahm Ya at Chat Thai – A favourite amongst Sydney chefs, Chat Thai’s fermented rice noodles with coconut curry and fish dumplings is a classic not to be missed.

For a taste of Taiwan: Gua Bao Trio at Mr Bao – Mr Bao always keep it fun and flavoursome offering a ‘Gua Bao Trio’, including crackling pork belly, karaage chicken and Korean beef served in a cloud like taco shaped bun.
