BLOG OF THE MOMENT: I Eat Therefore I Am
Crowded to the hilt I stumbled upon the markets (located at Hyde Park) rather accidently, intrigued by why there were so many people gathered. Much to my surprise it was a foodie event and naturally I could not keep away. There were dozens of stalls set up serving various Asian fare from noodles to stir-frys and Japanese pancakes: many of Sydneys leading eateries and restaurants had their own stalls set up serving some great food at prices accessible to all. Booze was also available for sale around the place, albeit at highly inflated prices.
Turns out that it was a lot of fun with live Chinese lion dancing and celebrations thorughout the evening. Queues for food were long, but that was part of the fun. The buzz around the places was great. And I loved watching the stall-holders stressing out cooking and serving as fast as they could.
My dish of choice - BBQ Singapore King Prawn Chao Quo Tiao: For $12 there is a seriously huge amount of yum factor going on here. Standing at the stall watching them cook up fresh batches to order was great.
A great experience and definitely a Sydney event I look forward to exploring deeper in the future.
