Who wants some real, good, authentic Thai food as well as some incredible entertainment and live music? Then look no further than the Thai Street Food Night Market. Brought to you by Torung Market Perth, the pop-up marketplace will be full of fresh, hot food, cold beer and music.
With a selection of foods, from oysters to fresh fruit, there is something for everyone. The noodle soup bar and the Thai Salad bar are both not to be missed. Once you have had your fill of delicious hot meals, then there are dessert carts and stalls too. There are even lollies for the kids. You can go to a fruit carving lesson for only $5 per person. Bookings for these lessons are essential, and they do book out fast.
Thai food is often described as sour, spicy, salty and sweet. So, something for everyone. They often contain rice or noodles, vegetables, meats (but vegetarian are available) and soupy broths. Sometimes, some fruits are added, like papaya or pineapple. Papaya salad is often one of the healthiest Thai meals you can get, and is an incredible taste sensation.
With a licenced bar, there are lots of different beers and wines to enjoy in the night air. Some food carts are going to require you to book as they get very busy. The Perth Latin dancers will be there to help you to shake your hips as they cha cha cha their way through the evening.
Kids can get their faces painted, and there will be other activities to keep them entertained.
The entire markets are Thai themed, and there will be stalls for you to shop at while you eat. Pick yourself up a present for the family or even treat yourself to something nice. After all, Christmas is coming and a gift from the Thai Markets would be better than some bath salts.
The markets open on Saturday 25th September at 6pm and close at 11:30pm. The venue, Perth City Farm in East Perth, is eco-friendly and COVID safe. What's even better is, tickets are only $10. Of course, the food inside and anything to buy inside costs more. You aren't forced to spend more than the entrance fee, but once you are inside, you are going to really want to spend loads of money and you will spend the entire night eating, drinking and dancing. What could be better?
