Once more with feeling
Everyone I know that has been to the Night Noodle Markets usually comes down with a bad case of ‘I want to eat everything’itis’ but as physical limitation goes, we can only eat so much before we blow up.
After our first visit we just had to come back for more.
First stop, POKLOL, a name that always puts a smile on my face, I don’t know why, is it the ‘LOL’ in the name?
Doesn’t matter, I’m here to eat!
I got myself two Korean BBQ Tacos for $15. The Bulgogi Beef and Chilli Pork were both soft tortilla tacos with kimchi slaw and spicy mayo. At first glance they both looked the same and I wasn’t sure which one was which. Not that it matters, I just wanted to know which one I was eating first.
The Chilli Pork taco had a nice chilli hit to it, but definitely not overpowering. The Bulgogi beef was just filled with BBQ beef goodness. The other components fitted in nicely and there was plenty of meat. I was very satisfied with my first choice of the day.
Second stop was House of Crabs to try their Lobster Fries ($13) it had corn and lobster gravy with pieces of bacon. I really, really liked it. The fries weren’t soggy at all despite all that gravy which covered the entire serving. I found myself scraping the last remaining pieces of bacon in the end. Who doesn’t?
Last stop was dessert. I really wanted to go to Messina and get myself another gelato creation but I knew I had to try something different, so I walked over to the Nutie (according to the staff, is pronounced ‘nut-e’) donut stand. These are not the traditional donuts you and I know, as in deep fried batter goodness but more like little donut shaped cakes covered in chocolate, hmmmm chocolate cake donuts.
I got the Bounty and Cherry Ripe donuts (2 for $12). They both tasted similar to their chocolate bar counterparts, very rich, sweet and delicious. I did struggle to finish them in the end, but finished them I did. Victorious!
Part two of The Night Noodle Markets was a great success, we managed to find more yummy foods as well as a creative take of the beloved donut.
Night Noodle Markets ends this Sunday 23 October, so be quick.
