Night Noodle Markets @ Hyde Park

It's been a crazy few weeks for Roo, preparing for my upcoming trip to the Caribbean and US (I leave in a few days but more on that later), working and socialising.  I know I'm looking forward to lazing on the deck of the cruise ship in the Caribbean with a cocktail or three. Just gotta get there yet.

Good Food Month has passed me by and I haven't done as much as I had planned.  Saying that, I did make myself visit the Night Noodle Markets on Wednesday night.  It's been many years since I have experienced them, what with living overseas and travelling, I was never around.  Last year I had BIG plans to go a few times, until I had to have 2 operations that shut me down for October! Anyhoo, this year I was not going to miss out again.  I was surprised on how big they have grown over the years. 

I loved the lanterns all lit up and made for very pretty photos.

Grabbing what seemed to be the last table, we managed to score a decent bottle of Brown Brothers white - let's just say it was a very 'cheap' bottle of wine and I loved it so much - it's on the list to purchase a case!

Gasp, shock, horror, I left the choice of dishes up to a friend for first round.  They wandered off while I fended off the vultures looking for chairs.  It wasn't long when they returned laden with a couple of dishes for Zilver.  Dim Sum and Sang Choy Bow.  Bother delicious!

My turn to wander and I was on the hunt for Jackie M and decided on a serve of the Roti Canai.  Absolutely devine.  The roti was crispy and crunchy and perfect to dip into the lentil curry. I loved this dish.

Wrongly, I was full and I wished I could have tried more - my bad for leaving it so long into the weeks and as I won't be able to get back there before Saturday when it finishes for another year I won't get a chance to try some more of the amazing looking offerings at these noodle markets.

Go early as it gets crowded.  There are plenty of tables and chairs, but they get full. Another great option is to take a picnic blanket and pull up some grass.
