Night Noodle Market Hyde Park, Sydney

It was a very warm Spring evening when hundreds or even thousands descended into Hyde Park for this pop up event, Night Noodle Market which is part of the CRAVE Sydney International Food Festival.


Meals are cooked to order and only the freshest ingredients are used by JackieM Malaysian Restaurant. I can see a lot of other stalls are prepping up for the rush, and the vendors are cooking their meals away whilst hungry and patient patrons line up and wait to order their meals for the evening. For some, the aroma reaches the nose before the foods can reach the mouth. It must be quite torturous, the waiting.



For me, it was worth the wait. After tasting every morsel of the char kway teow which was a generous portion by the way with its fine wok breath, one can almost feel like one have been transported back to the street stalls of Malaysia. I also visited Mamak stall, for my all time favourites; satay. I could happily lived on satays alone if I were to give up carbs...but not tonite ;) because that char kway teow is just stupendous!


And this is exactly what Noodle Night Market is all about. The park is transformed into a Street style hawker center,  just like ones, you see in Asia when you traveled. Here are the various stalls that are participating this year.



Every year, for the month of October, the beautiful City of Sydney brings you CRAVE International Food Festival and the Night Noodle Market has become one of the regular event. Because of its success in the past, this year, the event has been extended to thirteen nights.






I love this event and was sad to leave. I am already planning my next vacation, October next year and I will be staying longer to visit with this beautiful city of Sydney.

*** To note, something quite different for this year; is the Noodle Lounge. For $79.95 per person, this includes your drink on arrival plus full menu – entr矇e, main, dessert and you get to lounge around and catch up with friends after work and eat fabulous hawker fare without the lines. How good is that? Drinks are provided by The Morrison Bar and there is a live jazz music to keep your feet tapping.*****

Where: Hyde Park North

When: October 3-5, 8-12, 15-19; 5-10pm

Madam Tan's Nasi Lemak

Jackie from Yummy Stuff Goes Here was asking for a guest blog so I shamelessly offered to write about Madam Tan’s Nasi Lemak. 

The Madam Tan's method entails a lot of work but it is well worth it because you get to have the fluffy yummy nasi lemak rice to go with your curry chicken, egg and chilli. I developed this Nasi Lemak recipe after loads of research and served many a satisfied customer a delicious rich fluffy plate of Nasi Lemak.

You will need the following:

Old fashioned steamer
Muslin cloth
Large Bowl

7 cups of rice
500 g of coconut milk
4 cups of water
2 tsp of salt
1 large Spanish onion (finely sliced)
2 slices of ginger
Pandan leaves tied into a knot

Fill the bottom of the steamer with water and tie the muslin cloth across the steamer basket so that the rice doesn’t fall through the large holes. If you have a steamer which has small holes, then there is no need for the muslin cloth.

Muslin cloth with pandan leaves
Soak the 7 cups of rice for at least 2 hours and then place rice into the steamer with the sliced onion, pandan leaves and ginger. Steam the rice at high heat for 30 mins or until rice turns opaque, making sure to stir the rice from time to time. Prepare the coconut mixture by mixing the coconut milk with the water and salt. When rice is cooked, place into the coconut milk mixture and let soak for 30 mins.

Steaming the rice
Place the rice into the steamer once again and steam for another 40 mins. From time to time, stir the rice to ensure even cooking.

And there you have it......Madam Tan’s Nasi Lemak. Enjoy!

Nasi Lemak Sambal Prawns

Woke up hungry this morning and was craving nasi lemak, a Malaysian breaky. So ended up cooking some king size prawns in sambal paste from Malaysia. I didn't have any ikan bilis and so it is a very simple dish as in coconut rice and sambal prawns only. So delish!

It's finger licking good and I should have bought more of that sambal paste, note to self, buy more next trip to Melbourne ;) So hot and spicy.

Breakfast at Concorde KL

It was International Breakfast buffet at the Concorde KL, and me being the food freak, who has been missing out on all these foods for donkey years; err, let's just say....I went a little berserk but gracefully though at the buffet. I sneaked in some of these shots when no one was watching me... of course I earned one of those looks and groans from my son ...he was like"Mum.....can you sit at another table pleaseeeeeeee, stop taking pix!" Such a party pooper!


Siew Mai Dumplings, also on the plate is Roti Canai
