Last night, Joel took me to the Night Noodle Markets, an Asian food market set up in Sydney’s Hyde Park as part of Good Food Month. 50 food vendors, 8 million people, 7 million chairs, hundreds of lights, and one giant inflatable Happy Cat. While it was insanely crowded, the weather was perfect and the food was incredible.
The evening reminded me of food festivals back in the states–except the smell of gutter farts and stale cigarettes was blessedly absent. Just a drunk mix of rich business yuppie, school kids, hipsters and hippies taking up tables for too long, or sprawling out on the grass enjoying the dim sum, bao, noodles, fried chicken and curry fest. And I took lots of semi-blurry photos because I was getting knocked into a fair bit, and I don’t know how to play photographer yet.
Man… I could really go for some Pork Bao right now.

That looks like so much fun!! Nice pictures too!!
“I was getting knocked into a fair bit” You’re talking like them now! You’re becoming one of them!! (probably that’s a good thing.) I used to get this dish at this tiny restaurant called “Night Market Noodles” and I always pictured the Night Market as being this dark but beautiful place where everyone ate noodles, and today I have learned that this place exists in Australia. I must go.
