Good news, Sydney street food fans – the festival devoted to the best of the city's hawker fare is back. That's right – the Sydney Night Noodle Markets are on once again, this time with one very important difference.
This year, Sydneysiders can bring the markets home to them, with a rotating menu and banquets delivered straight to their door.
The Night Noodle Markets at Home, presented by Citi, delivered by DoorDash, offers a rotating menu of crowd favourites and signature dishes from eight sizzling stalls – now from the comfort of your couch.
Think Korean cauliflower bao from Bao Brothers, prawn toast doughnuts from Donut Papi and Toast Smith's XXL loaded Asian-inspired toasties filled with fluffy scrambled eggs, cheese, roasted sesame slaw, grilled prawns, corn chips and sweet chilli sauce.
Or steamed chicken and prawn wontons from Wok Master, loaded Nutella waffles from Waffleland and Asian egg waffles from Puffle.
Can't decide what to choose? Order a specially curated feast for two people, from the Broc 'n' Roll vegetarian dinner, with gourmet mushroom bao, cheese Asian egg waffles and tofu pad Thai, to the Date Night banquet, which includes traditional yakisoba, prawn and scallop spring rolls and a Donut Papi leche flan doughnut.
Or try a Bougie Banquet for six, which includes chicken and prawn wontons, steamed Chinese buns and Korean fried chicken Asian egg waffles, plus all the trimmings.
The head of Nine Food Events, Venessa Cowell, says the Night Noodle Markets herald the start of summer in Sydney.
"This year, whilst we can't all be together for the event, we wanted to deliver the next best thing," she says. "Celebrate with your favourite dishes, try something new and see what this years' ... cult dishes are going to be."
Delivery is available through the DoorDash app to selected inner suburbs. Pick up is not available.
Each customer will go in the running to receive giveaway surprises from Maggi, NESCAFÉ GOLD and Weis. Or share your banquet on Instagram for a chance to win one of four $1300 foodie staycay packages.
Stay tuned for a specially curated music playlist and fun TV binge-fest to enjoy along with your market feast.
