This summer i'm planning to do as many new things as possible.. and one of them is to visit night markets! So Farn and i went to the Suzuki Night Market at Queen Victoria Market last Wednesday night and it was a lot better than i expected. Just imagine a never ending maze of craft, vintage, delicacy and clothing stalls surrounded by food stalls from every cuisine possible...
We actually didn't eat dinner at the market because we wanted to try out the new Taiwan place on Swanston St/Lonsdale St (the one that has lines of people waiting outside 24/7....).
Farn ordered the "XXL Chicken Bento Box" (and it was a very big piece of chicken LOL...) and i decided on a Hot & Sour Noodle Soup because it was cold and i didn't bring a jacket....
Unfortunately, the food was either under or over seasoned (but the actual food is cooked well) and i prefer Box Hill's "The Booth" Taiwanese food a lot more (get THEIR hot & sour soup!!!!)
LOLL so of course we had to try what literally the whole market was lining up for that night (apart from the Korean potato skewers) - DUTCH PANCAKESSSS.
Warm, soft and fluffy... covered in butter and icing sugar hahaha not the most appealing photo but after it melted it was nostalgia all over.
I'm thinking chocolate sauce next time :) Oh and the home made lemonade with "lemon pulp" was nice too!
Now i only found two stalls worth buying vintage items from - a $15 skirt stall and one with a "2 items for $20" rack. The rest are your usual overpriced $35-75 range.
After browsing through every single stall (poor farn LOL), I decided it was either a $15 vintage skirt or a $2 lucky dip because i was definitely not going home empty handed hehe...
But then i chose the skirt because well... lucky dips are rarely worth it :(
The skirt looks rather blue, yeah? It's actually rather green and awesome to twirl around in :D
Anyway, I missed out on the French Festival and some outdoor cinema this year but there are plenty more night events to go to yayyyy
