Spring’s Top 5 must see events in Sydney
1. Good Food Month – Night Noodle Markets
Good Food Month runs for the whole of October in Sydney and it means that there are an array of foodie events happening around town that are sure to ignite your taste buds, but none more iconic than the night noodle markets in Hyde Park. This year the markets will be packed with a whopping 50 food stalls featuring all of the old favourites that we know and love plus some exciting new stalls such as; Jugemu & Shimbashi, Black Star Pastry and N2 Gelato. If you’re feeling particularly brave you can even try one of the much buzzed ramen burgers from One Tea Lounge. At this fantastic event you will not only be spoilt for choice in the food department but will also be surrounded by the amazing atmosphere of an Asian hawker market right in your own backyard. You’d be a noodle to miss this one!
