Hawker 88 Night Market
Time Out says
Another night market hits the Queen Vic Market to tide you over until summer
Wednesday nights in Melbourne are known for one thing and one thing only: Queen Victoria Market’s legendary Night Market. With the night market finishing up for the winter months, Queen Vic has announced it will be bringing back its insanely popular Asian night market to tide you over until the warmer months.
The Hawker 88 Night Market brings Asian tastes, sights and sounds to Queen Vic’s sheds. Running every Wednesday night from September 18 until October 23, over 20 stalls will be set up to sell authentic street food direct from China, India, Vietnam, Korea, Malaysia and Japan.
The tasty line-up of vendors this year includes Sri Lankan curries from Drums Café; soft shell crab with wontons from Miss Wonton; authentic Filipino spit-roasted pig from Kuya's Simply Pinoy; kimchi fries from Lui Boss; grilled momo from Nepal Dining Room; and Japanese pork ribs from Kobe Jones. Thai favourite Son in Law is bringing its giant cartoon fairy floss creatures back while Durasia is serving fresh slices of the world's most divisive fruit, durian (you can also get durian ice cream from the vendor).
As usual, there will be market stalls selling plenty of weird and wonderful wares, as well as live performances and music to enjoy.
