Great news for Asian food lovers, or indeed lovers of food in general, the Kingsford Noodle Markets are back again this year. On Saturday, November 16, Kingsford’s Meeks Street will be transformed into a lantern garden and bustling marketplace filled to the brim with sensational cuisine from Indonesia, Japan, China, Malaysia, Vietnam and more.
Along with delightful delicacies from countless countries, this year Randwick Council and Kingsford Chamber of Commerce have joined forces to bring you a fabulous mix of performers and entertainment. From lion dancers and cultural performances to free workshops and karaoke, there will be no shortage of things to see and do. There will also be a few competitions throughout the day for those who want to get involved and test some skills they never even knew they had. Fancy trying your hand at a bit of casual prawn peeling? Have you always dreamed about taking on your friends, and strangers, in a serious chopstick competition? Well, this is your chance.
But of course, nobody goes to a noodle market purely for the entertainment, so let’s get down to the real business of food. The event is designed to showcase the best that Kingsford has to offer. Many local restaurants will take part and their super talented chefs will be delighted to cook their signature dishes from scratch right in front of you. Walking past endless stalls of fresh produce exuding truly fabulous aromas will be enough to make your mouth water and your tummy grumble. Satay, sushi, noodles, dumplings, pancakes and ice-cream… a selection of delicacies from Kingsford’s best restaurants. Seriously, are you dribbling yet?
For those of you who are tempted to try something from every stall, you’re in luck, because this year’s event will run from 12 noon until 9pm. If you’re smart about it, you could probably spread your ginormous food-binge over two (or maybe even three) meals to make it seem a bit more socially acceptable. With so much entertainment on offer and a fantastic atmosphere all-round, it’s a perfect day out for the whole family, not just you and your bursting belly.
Last year’s event drew some solid crowds, so the organisers recommend catching public transport where possible. There are bus stops along Rainbow Street and Anzac Parade that are just a short walk from Meeks Street.
We’ve given you plenty of notice here, so there’s still ample time to hit up the gym, trot up and down the coastal path or do whatever you need to do to make room for an endless supply of fresh, delicious and authentic Asian delights at the Kingsford Noodle Markets on Saturday, November 16.
