Asian Night Markets Return to Queen Victoria Market

by Tiahne Frederic

There is no need to pack your bags and fly overseas because for a second year in a row the Hawker 88 Night Market is back at Queen Vic Market. You will have definitely have a multifaceted, cultural experience where you can enjoy all that Asian bars and restaurants have to offer at this market. Every Wednesday night from the 18th September to 23rd October, and with more than 20 stalls, your taste-buds will transport you to from China to India, Vietnam to Korea and Malaysia to Japan in just one night!

There will be traditional dishes like Filipino barbecue, Malay satay, Indian curries, and Korean pork belly and yes you can definitely pretend you are in that night market scene in Crazy Rich Asians. I know I will! And I don’t know about you but I now have a crazy rich appetite (no pun intended). Obviously this market is definitely a must this Spring so write is down on that to-do list please!

With food at the centre of its culture, the Asian experience includes immersing oneself into food flavours, aromas, colours and form and you can definitely do this here. I truly and whole-heartedly believe that one of the best things about being a Melbournian are opportunities like this Night market that give us the chance to try something new and engage with multicultural experiences.

Additionally, to complete the experience, the sounds and colours of Asia will fill the Market sheds with live music and entertainment, including traditional dancers and performers taking centre stage. Expect everything from a traditional Chinese lion dance, to martial arts and K-Pop and it is very important to note that each Wednesday night has a different theme. This includes;

18 September: Mooncake Festival

9 October: Bali & Borocay Island
