Monday night after a big weekend, with little to nothing in the fridge at home to eat made for the perfect excuse to check out the Night Noodle Markets currently on at Southbank in Brisbane. Christian met me right after work at 5pm when things kicked off, and there were already crowds of people pouring through the front gates (perhaps all in a similar boat to us).

Passing through the entrance, under a canopy of colourful lanterns, the aromas immediately hit you. Our stomachs growled with excitement! With so, so many stalls set up it was incredibly difficult to pick a starting point. We settled on the most logical, starting at the front of the grounds and working our way around.

Music pumped at the individual bars set up, including a live DJ at one. Staff from The Fox Hotel wandered about taking drink orders for those lucky enough to nab a seat, and the sun slowly started to sink a midst the onset of cloudy skies.

Delicious yum cha, Japanese pizzas, Pad Thai, skewered meats, tantalizing curries and a seemingly endless supply of gyoza all on offer – could our bellies stretch enough to try it all?

Needless to say, we left heavy like sumos.

This was certainly a great way to kick of Good Food Month, ahead of Brisbane’s annual festival. If you’re in town and you’re a fan of noodles and everything in between, then make sure you pay these markets a visit. You have until this Sunday 27th July before they pack all of the goodness up.

For more details, head to the Good Food Month website. While you’re there, be sure to check out all of the upcoming events that also extend to Sydney, Melbourne and Canberra.

    • Yeah! I’m pretty sure this is the first year up this way. I’m absolutely loving Good Food Month. You guys are lucky in Melbourne to have an endless supply of amazing food 24/7. I would move just for that fact!

    • That was a really lovely post! I think it’s great to have a source of inspiration (or multiple). Sometimes we need it in order to hit ‘refresh’ on our own minds etc.

      To be honest, writing is something I’ve done for a while and it kind of comes naturally (not without a bit of hard work and hours from my part). I suppose my big inspirations focus mainly on photography, as that is something I’m trying to work on and get better at!

      My little blog all started purely as a way of keeping friends and family updated back home while I was travelling. It also acted as a bit of a diary for myself! I received quite a bit of encouragement once I started it so I kept at it. I’d really love to see it go somewhere, but for now, it’s a great creative release outside of my 9-5 job 🙂

      It means a lot that you took the time to read through some of my posts! And even more so that you liked what you saw. We can always be our own harshest critics, so getting feedback from others is a great thing.

      Thanks again Deanna. Wishing you all the best with your own blog!

      • I love how neat your blog is! I love your article about Bali, I will be going there next month for the first time!
        I agree with you, writing is really a form of release for most of us.
        Hope you can visit Philippines one day. I would love to give you a tour!

        All the best! 🙂

      • Thank you! So exciting to hear you’re off to Bali – there really are some incredibly beautiful spots over there. You’ll love it!

        I would like to get to the Philippines one day. Lots there to see 🙂
