How Chapel Street’s Mr Miyagi is smashing Melbourne Night Noodle Markets this year

Mr Miyagi

From 8-25 November, go to Birrarung Maar in Melbourne for the annual Melbourne Night Noodle Markets. They’re on again and serving-up all the good stuff from the likes of F&B legends Wonderbao, Black Star Pastry and Sash Japanese – and heaps more! We spoke to Mr Miyagi, the ramen joint on Chapel Street that made a fast name for itself, about what’s on for them this Market season… What do you think you bring to Good Food Month that is different to everyone else? A new surprise every year, we are constantly testing new menu items and this year’s offering is better than ever! How did you decide what will be your hero menu items this year?  We work throughout the year to come up with the most delicious dishes imaginable. This year’s offering has been tried and tested through our “50 step process”. This includes wet weather testing, plate stability tests, UV resistance and photographability tests. Our staff all have a different favourite, and that’s when you know the items are good! In three words, how’d you describe your flavour?  Japanese. Hot. Dog. What’s your favourite thing about food?  It brings people together, fun memories are always created over a meal. Awkward Tinder dates and family food fights wouldn’t be possible without food! Why Melbourne Good Food Month?  We love Melbourne, we love food and we love months. The Noodle Markets give us a great platform to share our love of these things with a huge group of people and get feedback to keep improving. See… Read More

This year we’ve brought our Strawberry Watermelon, Chocolate Lava, and Raspberry Lychee cakes to the Night Noodle Markets. Anyone with a sweet tooth needs to save room for at least one. How did you decide what will be your hero menu items this year? Our iconic Strawberry Watermelon Cake is said to be the world’s most Instagrammed cake, so it picks itself as the hero item. It only makes its way to Melbourne once a year and the queues are always long for this sweet sensation. You know it’s a good cake when a molten chocolate fondant with raspberry compote, caramelised popcorn and freeze-dried raspberries takes second billing. In three words, how’d you describe your flavour?  Strawberry. Watermelon. Perfection. What’s your favourite thing about food? Good food is one of life’s great pleasures, that’s why we’re in the business of making it. Look around the Night Noodle Markets, it’s full… Read More
