Enlighten Night Noodle Markets
Following the popularity of its inaugural year, Canberra restaurants will feature as part of the 2017 Enlighten Night Noodle Markets as the event returns with more space, more food and more stall holders.
More than 25 stalls are expected to span across both sides of the grass at Reconciliation Place.
Crowds are expected to flock to the shores of Lake Burley Griffin to enjoy a diverse offering of Asian eats against the stunning backdrop of six of Australia’s most iconic institutions lit up after dark.
“The Canberra Times is proud to get behind the Enlighten Night Noodle Markets, which showcase the city’s growing street food scene. There is also a chance for Canberrans to taste delicious dishes from across the country, such as Bao Stop and Hoy Pinoy,” Natasha Rudra, The Canberra Times Food and Wine Editor said from the 2016 markets.
The 2017 Enlighten Night Noodle Markets will run from 3rd-12th March in the heart of the Parliamentary Triangle.
