Today's special: tiger prawn pancakes
(and note the decorative tiger stripes on the letters too)
Another visit to the Night Noodle Markets, this time with the shutterbugs from Sydney Photobloggers on Flickr.
And when Tracey said "but haven't you already been to the Night Noodle Markets?", I could only smile and look at the hubbub around me and say "but look at how many different stalls there are!"
In less than a week, there were already changes evident from my last visit with Saffron. Three extra stalls had been set up on a short strip near Elizabeth Street, some stalls had swapped location and price drops were also noticed: Banana Blossom had caved in to market forces, reducing the price of their pork sausages from $9 to $7, and their ocean trout from $10 to $8 (their stall had been a little lonely and queueless that first week).

Benzin by Sailors Thai Canteen
Benzin was definitely a new arrival and having not yet had the chance to visit its Surry Hills premises, dinner from here seemed a logical choice (the lack of queues helped somewhat too).
Thai chicken with chilli sauce $7.50
from Benzin by Sailors Thai Canteen
Two pieces of chicken were laid upon a disposable bowl of white rice and then drizzled over with extra Thai sweet chilli sauce. The chicken was tender and the skin was lovely and crisp, barbecued to a caramelised black. It had the intensity of flavour from an overnight marinade in plenty of garlic, chilli, sugar and peppercorns. It was good...
Two stalls down. More to go.
The Night Noodle Markets are on Monday to Friday from 5pm-9pm until Friday 20th October.
Head to the Archibald Fountain, Hyde Park North, Hyde Park, Sydney
(where Market Street meets Elizabeth Street)
