Now it is without question that Melbournians have a great awareness of food. Whether you simply eat it to live, or live to eat, the topic of food is widely discussed amongst people from all walks of life. We talk about the best place to have ramen, where one can acquire the most tasteful drip coffee, we talk to each other about the great place we had brunch the other day. Hence, when Alexandra gardens, a minute walk from Flinder’s station, became the host of the Noodle Night Market, we Melbournians flocked to it like a fly to a lightbulb. An epic pligramage of people with tastebuds ever ready, and their thumbs a swipe away from instagram.

Truly a fun event with lovely lights, open space and food galour. It featured a host of our favourite food star’s such as Chin Chin, Messina and Wonderbao. Running for two weeks from the end of November, it definately has been a highlight and an success in the Melbourne event calendar.
To our fellow Melbournians, what were your thoughts on the event? :)In other non food related happenings, we are absolutely loving having Livia share her divine fashion sense on our blog, I believe we have around 2 or 3 more posts to share with you, so don’t stress, you haven’t seen the last of Liv!  And v&v photography have been super busy doing some shoots and events! We just finished a shoot this morning and cannot wait to share it with you.

    I loved the Noodle Market, the food was good and the weather was even better! The only downside for me was the amount of people, there were so many but that’s ok,… the more the merrier! And I loved the Lanterns there, would definitely go back!

      Awesome to hear your thoughts Susan! Yeah it was super packed, I was really shocked with the lines! But it definately made for a great atmosphere. 🙂

    Oh wow, all that food looks so good! I went to the Noodle Markets in Sydney but didn’t eat much because it was a bit overpriced… I’m curious about what was at the Melbourne one though, since I assume it would have different restaurants!

      Hey Mani! We did find that the food was slightly more expensive than their regular prices! We had Chin Chin, Wonderbao, Mamak, Messina, (which I believe you also have in Sydney!) Saigon Sally and Longrain. It was really hard to choose what to eat. 🙂
