One of the highlights of Good Food Month, the crowd favourite Night Noodle Markets are back at South Bank from July 19-30.
The lantern-lit waterside markets are the place to sample the very best of street food from around southern Asia, from Taiwan to Japan, the Philippines to Vietnam.
This year's Night Noodle Markets will offer 23 stalls of delicious food, a handful of bars and live music nightly. Noodles can be had from Taiwan Noodle House and Teppanyaki Noodles as well as Malaysian stir dried noodles from Sambal Kampung, Drunken Noodles from Shallot Thai and Spanthai (also look out for their Saffron Chicken Paella) and Pas See-iew and Pad Thai from Spanthai and bespoke chef-created noodle dishes from Vintaged Bar & Grill.
But there's so much more to this market than noodles - look out for the delectable Bao from Bao Stop, Vietnamese Pho filled Burritos from Little Kyoto, Kimch Ramen and Fries from NomNom Korean Eatery, Twisstos (Korean style twisted potato on a stick), and Alpine King Salmon poke bowls from Poke Bear. Otherwise there's the likes of Crispy Pork Belly, Chilli Caramel and Asian Slaw Burger from Chur Burger and Harajuku Gyoza's Japanese Corn Dogs, Long Fries and Dessert Ramen.
Meanwhile Let’s Do Yum Cha will be dishing up delicious steamed dumplings and pork buns, along with their classic spring rolls, while Hoy Pinoy cook up their mouth-watering Filipino chicken and pork skewers and Zagyoza serve their much loved gyoza with creative vegan fillings such as chick pea lentil and black bean vegan. And in a first this year, Phuc Deli Viet will be peddling their bef pho, chicken laksa and Vietnamese Tasting Plate.
Be sure to leave room for dessert, with Blackstar Pastry xn2 Gelato bringing back last year's hits Strawberry Watermelon Cake Smash Gelato and Ferrero Reveal as well as Raspberry Lychee Cake while Waffleland's fresh baked waffles come with toppings such as maple syrup and black sesame, and the amazing Shanghai Sunrise - waffle with shaved coconut, mango, ice cream violet crumble bits, wafer sticks and maple syrup.
Last but not least Gelato Messina will be whipping up some must try creations including deep fried coconut and palm sugar gelato with passionfruit caramel and mango pudding and Banana Miso Gelatowith lychee tapioca, dragonfruit jellies and sweetened coconut thai milk tea.
Need to know - Night Noodle Markets are entirely cashless this year. Dogs are welcome on leash and kept 20m from the food stalls.
