There's a hidden Chinatown in the heart of Kingsford and now is the time to discover the tantalising Asian tastes of this suburb, only 7kms south-east of the CBD, with the noodle markets taking over Meeks Street on Saturday 16th November.
From noon to 9pm, local restaurants will be out in stalls cooking signature dishes with fresh produce. Authentic cuisine on offer will include flavours of Indonesia, China, Japan, Malaysia, Vietnam, and more.
In addition to oodles of noodles, the aromas of dishes being cooked in front of you will see you indulging in the likes of dumplings, combination dishes with rice, satay chicken, prawn and meat skewers, tuna rolls, salads, crepes, mini pancakes and exotic ice cream. Quenching your thirst are lychee drinks and interesting mixes.
With the flavours of Asia, there comes plenty of colour in the bustling area transformed into a lantern garden where lion dancers and cultural performances entertain visitors. Abuzz with activities as well, there's a lot to enjoy in this festive atmosphere.
Entry is free and car parking can be had for free too at Uni NSW (access via Barker St, Gate 14), just a short stroll to the event via Harbourne Street. If you're travelling by bus, there are a couple of routes from Central Station. Visit Transport NSW for timings.
Hosted by Randwick City Council, in collaboration with Kingsford Chamber of Commerce, this hawker-style market is the place for your fix of Asian food in one place for one day.
