C&G’s Guide to Night Noodle Markets

Are your tastebuds ready? The ever so popular Melbourne Night Noodle Markets will be returning to Birrarung Marr from 7-24 November. You’ll most likely recognise its iconic lanterns lining the Yarra River, transforming it into a hawker-style festival of refreshing summer vibes. You’ll be able to treat yourself to oriental flavours sourced from China, Vietnam and Thailand to name a few. There will also be plenty of live music and DJs to keep you entertained for 18 whole nights! In this C&G blog we highlight our favourite eats on the menu, but there are so many more so don’t forget to check the full directory here. Gather your friends or family and enjoy this wonderful noodle-filled festival!

Gelato Messina

It’s everyone’s favourite artisan gelato. They’ll be serving up some exclusive flavours such as Phuket Bucket, Eye of the Thai-ger and Coco Phangan. That sounds like plenty of sticky rice, coconut, banana and lychee to go around! Perfect for the sweet tooth and warm weather.

Mr. Miyagi

The popular Japanese eatery from Windsor will be bringing the goods this November. They will be offering their signature Miyagi Fried Chicken alongside their Pounded Pork and Mushroom Sesame Smash. Yum!


It’s not a food festival unless these gorgeous lobster rolls are making an appearance. Pinchy’s is known for their sustainable seafood practices and adding a signatory twist to their dishes. Their popular Maine to Melbourne Lobster Roll will be the first on the menu as well as Wasabi Prawn Roll and Creamy Crab Croquettes. Don’t forget to check them out!


When it comes to delicious steamed bao buns, Wonderbao is a clear winner. Melbourne will be getting a taste of authentic Chinese flavours with 6 different options catering to savoury and sweet preferences. Inspired by the practice of eating well and nostalgia, this ‘food fairytale’ will surely be a hit!

Night Poodle Markets

Lastly, don’t forget Fido and Max on Saturday 9th November as there’ll be dedicated stalls filled with treats for your four-legged friends! There may also be pet photographers around to snap a memorable portrait of you guys! All the proceeds from this special evening will be donated to RSPCA Victoria.
