Adelaide: Day 1 – The Lewingtons & Adelaide Night Noodle Markets

September 26, 2015

With a bit of help from our lovely colleagues, both Michael and I were able to swap some shifts to have 5-6 days off together.

Mike’s best friend, Matt, his wife Laura, and their daughter Isabelle had recently moved to Adelaide to live and work for the year. As promised, we were able to find some time for a short visit!

We left on Saturday morning from Rockhampton to Brisbane to Adelaide. Perks of being a Qantas Club Member – priority check in and lounge access… which means food if you’re hungry! πŸ˜‰ And a comfortable place to hang out during your layovers!

I wish we had more time in Brisbane to see some friends and visit some of our favourite restaurants, but maybe next time!

We landed in Adelaide around 6pm – thank you to the Lewingtons for picking us up and being such wonderful friends and hosts during our stay!

Our visit in Adelaide started with the well timed Adelaide Noodle Markets, in association with OzAsia Festival (Sept 24 – Oct 4) where the city’s Festival Centre precinct was transformed to an Asian hawker-style market. Loved it.

After being in Rockhampton for a long while, so good to see such a gathering of good Asian food! You can click HERE to see a map of all the vendors and the dishes they offered!

We enjoyed a number of tasty dishes including:

  • BBQ pork buns from Let’s Do Yum Cha
  • Chili Crab Bao from Baotime
  • Gyoza (Japanese dumplings) from Zagyoza – The Home of Gyoza
  • Vegetarian samosas and pad se-iew from SpanThai
  • Banana fritters with ice cream from Shallot Thai

Would have loved to enjoy more delicious Asian food for days! πŸ˜‰

Ended the night catching up with Matt and Laura. We even got to be happy taste testers for Laura who made her first, quite successful, pavlova! Topped with custard, whipped cream, and fruit – yum!
