The Night Noodle Market is not just noodles – it’s music, fun and fabulous Asian flavours.
Hagley Park’s lakeside Entertainment Triangle will have 21 local and international hand-picked food stalls from February 6, Waitangi Day, until February 15.
That’s 10 mouth-watering nights for Christchurch’s celebrated pop-up event under neon lanterns.
Event Manager Vanessa Fleming says stallholders are working on exciting new menus, with more plant-based options.
Aussie Hoy Pinoy’s smokin’ BBQ skewers and Gelato Messina’s Thai full moon gelato dessert menu will wow.
New onboard are Japan’s The Flying Noodle and Melbourne’s Puffle Dessert.
Favourite local fare includes new restaurant Dish. Moa Beer, Crafters Union and the Coca-Cola Caravan have beverages to match the feasting.
Achieving NZ’s Best Sustainable Event at the 2018 NZEA Awards, compostable packaging partner Ecoware, recyclable cans, and 100 percent recycled plastic bottles help the event move towards zero waste.
Lion dancers, Takumi drummers, performers and live bands spice up the mood, with local funk/reggae band Horizon for opening night.
Sport Suzie will entertain the kids both Saturdays.
Eclectic new visuals include an immersive entranceway and an 9m-wide neon-look “selfie” wall.
Vote for the favourite ‘Top Chopsticks’ stallholder to be in to win $1000. Also Air New Zealand offers the chance to win economy flights for two to Asia.
Entry is free and all ages are welcome, including dogs on a leash.
There’s free Wi-Fi at the cashless event – all stallholders accepting major credit and debit cards (excluding AMEX) and have contactless payment facilities.
Noodle Night Market runs from 4pm to 10pm daily – with a 1pm start for Sparks in the Park, on the last day.
