The iconic foodie event to take place at Brisbane City Botanic Gardens in June
One of Queensland’s most iconic foodie events is back! Announced today, the 2022 Brisbane Night Noodle Markets presented by Citi will return for 12 nights from Wednesday 15 June until Sunday 26 June.
Last held in 2019, this year’s Night Noodle Markets promise to be even bigger and better as they take place at their new home of Brisbane’s City Botanic Gardens.
Each evening, the beautiful riverside park will be transformed into a vibrant, open-air Asian street food festival, with live entertainment and hawker-style stalls and pop-ups serving up their most drool-worthy dishes, drinks and bites.
From slurpable noodles and steaming hot dumplings to melt-in-your-mouth bao and Insta-worthy desserts, locals and visitors will have the chance to feast on an array of sizzling, sweet and spicy meals and morsels from an exciting mix of popular local, national and interstate eateries. Vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, Halal options, and other dietary requirements will also be catered for.
Expect tasty treats from crowd-favourites Hoy Pinoy, Flying Noodles, May’s Malaysian Hawker, Wonderbao, Gelato Messina, and Twistto to name just a few of the stallholders onboard, with more to be announced in the lead up to the event.
Along with live entertainment, lion dancers and a pets-welcome policy, this year’s Markets will also feature pop-ups from popular partner brands. These include a Gage Roads Beer Garden, an Aperol Spritz Kombi Bar, and Dan Murphy’s Zero% Bar which will be shaking fresh non-alcoholic cocktails. The Night Noodle Markets will also be serving Australia’s popular non-alcoholic beer Heaps Normal, a range of beverages from Coca-Cola Europacific Partners, Rekorderlig Cider, and Celebrity Cruises will be giving people the chance to win a luxurious Japan cruise for two.
Samantha Elliott, Head of Digital Sales and Marketing at Citi, said: “We are thrilled to be partnering with Night Noodle Markets again this year, as we welcome people back to in-person events. Citi customers love to dine out and the Night Noodle Markets promise to be an event filled with tasty food, delicious drinks, and fantastic entertainment. Events like this also give people an overdue opportunity to come together with family and friends to relax, catch-up, and reconnect, while celebrating their local foodie culture.”
Thanks to an exciting new partnership with Mr Yum, the experience will be transformed this year so visitors can spend less time queuing and more time eating. Diners now have the option to skip not just one but multiple queues at once by simply scanning a QR code to view, order and pay for items from different vendors on their phone in one transaction through Mr Yum, with an SMS sent when orders are ready for pick up.
Mr Yum CEO and Co-founder Kim Teo said: “The Brisbane Night Noodle Markets are one of Queensland’s most popular food events and Mr Yum will make the experience in 2022 even better by offering mobile ordering for drinks and food. Ordering through Mr Yum will help people skip multiple queues at once and we can’t wait to also welcome Brisbanites into the Mr Yum Garden on site in the City’s Botanic Gardens, where they can come to hang out and enjoy their meal.” Conor Farrell, Head of Night Noodle Markets comments: “Having not been able to host since 2019, we are so excited to confirm the Brisbane Night Noodle Markets will be taking place in June this year. We are back with an amazing new home at the Brisbane City Botanic Gardens, a fantastic line up of stallholders and pop-ups, and we’re helping make the experience easier through ordering with Mr Yum. It’s guaranteed to be a great night out of feasting under the stars for friends and families!”
