March is such an exciting month with so much to see, eat and do in the nation’s capital! Enlighten and the Night Noodle Markets kicked off on Friday and are some of the many events happening during Good Food Month. We were invited to some special foodie events to try ALL the food. We want to share it all with you so you can be prepared when you head to the Night Noodle Markets this year.
This year Menulog has launched the At-Home-Zone so you can take a seat, skip the queue and wait for Menulog’s on-ground team to take your order. If you decide to hang out in the At-Home-Zone then you can order from Hoy Pinoy, Chur Burger, Pkol, Spanthai, Waffleland and Zagyoza.
Bao Stop are Back and we’re a little obsessed with their baos and peking duck fries.
Chur Burger Food Truck hits Canberra for the first time with three burgers, fries and a kids burger to choose from. We tried The NOTORIOUS P.I.G with crispy pork belly, chilli caramel, Asian slaw, pickled carrots and aioli and The Beef Dynasty – Grilled beef, cheese, five spice bacon, lettuce, Chinese bbq sauce, rice wine pickle, aioli, prawn cracker (yes – a prawn cracker!) They also have The A.C.T “Asian.chicken.tonkatsu”with Japanese panko crumbed chicken, tonkatsu sauce, lettuce, togarachi mayo but we haven’t tried it, YET. We hear it’s delicious and will give it a go on our next visit!
Hoy Pinoy are back and are dishing up their delicious sticky pork and chicken skewers!
Kusina Canberra have a selection of tasty treats for your to choose from including Lechon Kawali – crispy pork belly with tradition Filipino sweet bread sauce. They also have a special ube and pandan swirl ice cream that we hear is a winner!
Grab some gyoza and edamame at the Donburi Station! The gyoza were juicy and so flavoursome.

After you’ve finished with the savoury options then move on to the sweet treats. Choose from 5 flavours at Waffleland including strawberry and nutella.
Gelato Messina have created some special sweet treats this year! We LOVED the Pavin’ It Large – Lychee Meringue, Coconut & Pandan sorbet, Kaya (pandan custard), Raspberry Marshmallow, Yuzu Puree – and will definitely be heading back for seconds.
