The Night Noodle Markets are making a return this week! Please try to ramen calm – I mean remain calm.
The markets will be held from this Friday 25 February to Sunday 6 March and there is plenty of entertainment on offer from live music to dragon dancers, but let’s get down to what we’re all interested in: the FOOD. We have compiled a list of the dishes we are most looking forward to…
1. Flying Noodle
What’s better than noodles? Noodles that fly! Slurp on the iconic chicken, prawn or braised pork belly dragon noodles by flying noodles.
2. Korean Fried Chicken
Enjoy some Seoul food from Korbq including Tempura Eggplant, Tempura Vegetable Pancake and our pick – Korean Fried Chicken.
3. Potato Twistto
At first glance, this may look like just potato on a stick but don’t get it twisted these tornado potato sticks are seasoned to perfection and are a must try.
4. Roti Roll
@RollUp returns to the Night Noodle Markets again this year with yet another wrap battle. Choose between peking duck, satay chicken or vegetable wraps all of which taste as good as they look.
5. Pork Belly and Chicken Skewers
Hoy Pinoy returns to the Markets this year and as usual always delivers. Their mouthwatering signature pork belly skewers in a banana ketchup glaze always hits the spot.
6. Crispy Calamari and Long Potato Fries
If you’re after crunchy, deep-fried treats look no further than the giant crispy calamari and long potato fries from Calabang.
Yakisoba is Japanese style fried noodles with zucchini, tomatoes and pickled ginger and is a perfect vegetarian option for veggos in the mood for noods.
