Melbourne’s Night Noodle Market

Noodle 1

November is Good Food Month in Melbourne and this is the 2nd time the Night Noodle Market has been run. It’s one of the feature events on the calendar. Held at Birrarung Marr, on the banks of the Yarra River, there are around 50 stalls run by well-known restaurants. You can wait an hour or more to get a table at some of these restaurants so just being able to walk up to a stall and try a few sample dishes is great. We got there quite late so some of the restaurants had sold out.

We only had a chance to buy one meal so we chose the dumpling from Let’s Do Yum Cha. I introduced my Mum to the pork bun. They are an acquired taste but I have grown to like them.

Cee’s Which Way Photo Challenge: 2014 #23

This photo was taken at Point Nepean National Park in Victoria, Australia.  They are some of the steepest steps I’ve encountered. I can’t remember how many there were unfortunately.  They link sea level with the road and battlements.

Fedeles

Fedeles is a great Italian restaurant near where work in Melbourne.   It has been around forever.  Everyone remembers it from a long time ago but no one remembers when it opened.  We were there for a work dinner.  We were offered a limited three-course meal.

The Antipasto entrée contain an oyster, prosciutto, goats cheese, salmon and frittata amongst other delicious bite-sized pieces.

The salmon was advertised a grilled fish of the day. The menu didn’t even mention that the fish was salmon and I didn’t ask what it was. I was so happy when it arrived and it was salmon.

The Christmas Pudding was absolutely delicious and so was the custard.  I’m going to keep the presentation in mind for Christmas lunch this year.  Adding the strawberries and blueberries added a nice, different touch.
