The following year, the event was one of the first to move to Elizabeth Quay, where the crowd flocked to pop up, Asian-inspired stalls.
This year, the Night Noodle Markets will again be held at Elizabeth Quay from March 16 to 25, where tens of thousands of people are expected to go along and enjoy food from Perth's own Malay street food Bunga Raya Satay, traditional Vietnamese street food Saigon Eats, traditional Thai food from Bangkok Jump Street, Japanese street food from Gyoza Joint and Miss Chows dumplings.

Reminiscent of the great Asian hawker markets, friends flock to Elizabeth Quay to enjoy sitting down and sharing a variety of dishes from more than 20 stalls with everything from fluffy bao to delicious desserts.
Perth has fallen in love with the sizzling sights and smells of the markets with its fresh, fluffy bao, sticky skewers of smoked hot meat, refreshing drinks and delicious desserts.
Pop up bars are open for beer, cider and wine with Coonawarra winery Brands Laira, Beer It's Beautiful from Lion Australia and spirits from Diageo.
The stall layout this year will be slightly different and visitors are being promised even more seating areas than last year.
Lion dancers, live performers and DJs will keep the crowds entertained.
