Sensational street food


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.

Coinciding with the Chinese New Year, Cantabrians can embark of a vibrant flavour journey through Asia, with a mouth-watering line-up of more than 20 sizzling hawker-style stalls and live entertainment recreating the hustle and bustle of an authentic pop-up Asian Night Market.

Popular local eatery and 2018’s crowd-favourite, Sister Kong, is returning with a new menu as ‘Bang Bang Street Eats’; ever-popular Hoy Pinoy is back and serving up tasty new items; Little Kyoto is debuting in Christchurch all the way from Japan; and a wealth of Canterbury favourites are coming to the party, including newcomer Mumbaiwala.

Recently nominated for Best Sustainable Event at the 2018 NZEA Event Awards, this year’s markets will run alongside UB40’s 40th anniversary gig on Waitangi Day and Christchurch’s Sparks festival on Saturday 16 February (both also held at North Hagley Park).

Free event Wi-Fi and a new mobile event guide are set to make sharing the Night Noodle Markets experience easy without worrying about chewing up data. Entry is free and food options range from $5 to $20. All ages are welcome, even the furry kind (leashed). The event is completely cashless – all stallholders accept major credit and debit cards (excluding AMEX) and have contactless, Apple Pay and Google Pay facilities.
