Night Noodle Market 2014

November is Good Food Month in Melbourne so it's the best month of the year to be a foodie. From once off events in restaurants, to the Taste of Melbourne Festival and the Night Noodle Market. In it's second year, this time round it was hosted at Birrarung Marr. With heaps of stalls to choose from spread over 3 areas this is how my exploring went....

Mr Miyagi


For those who read my blog on a regular basis, would know how much I love fried chicken. So trying the MFC was a must. Between Bobo, Az, D, K and I, we got the 20 piece and smashed it! The crisp chicken skin with juicy, succulent chicken inside. It's finger licking good!

Shimabashi
To continue my binge on guilty pleasures, I got the Japanese poutine. Bits of broken up twister chips, covered with Japanese curry sauce and cheese. It was unexpectedly good!

New Shanghai
From New Shanghai we got the combo pack (which only saved us $0.50). It came with the famous pan fried pork buns, spring onion pancakes and steamed dumplings.

The pan fried pork buns were good but is better in store. It was difficult to eat without a spoon with all the soup inside.

Spring onion pancakes and the steamed dumplings were nice but nothing exceptional.

Messina
Whenever Messina as dessert is an option, then it is a must have. We got the Street Hawker and Phuc Khing Tasty. Street hawker has a brownie base with lashings of peanut gelato, peanut cookie and coconut and caramel jam.

Phuc Khing Tasty, is as the name suggests, F'ing tasty. The coffee gelato, cinnamon scroll,  with the spiced cookie was just delicious and a wonderful combination of flavours.

I can't wait for 2015's noodle market!
