Saturday night, two-and-a-half hungry bunnies were sitting in their pad wondering what to have for dinner, when suddenly, a lightbulb appeared above my head; why don't we go to the Eat Street Markets where we can eat as much different food as we want?!
So we hopped into the car and off we went to Hamilton Wharf next to Portside.
We had been to the Eat Street Markets once before, when the foodies destination had just been established. I think the idea of cooking and serving international street foods from shipping containers is brilliant and it was about time that Brisbane finally has something like this as Asia is full of hawker stands that serves cheap yet super delicious street foods. We ended up having so much food on our first visit, but we still failed to try all of the morsels that were on offer.
So this time round, our plan was to pace ourselves and take things slowly.
It was a failed plan.
The moment when we set foot at the markets, which were beautifully decorated with glittering fairy lights everywhere, I had forgotten our tactics for the night. We started off with a garlic langos with the cheese, sour cream and salsa ($9) which tasted fantastic with some BBQ sauce. It was washed down by a bottle of cold Eumundi ginger beer ($5) and believe it or not, some dark chocolate coated strawberries($7). We then devoured a grilled cheese kransky w' sauerkraut in a roll ($7) and some pork ribs w' coleslaw ($14), before ending the night with a giant chocolate coated cronut ($7) (half croissant, half donut... just in case you were wondering).
It was a fun night filled with ample food options and exotic music. Eat Street Markets is a novel idea and I would recommend that you visit at least once, but make sure that you don't get too overwhelmed by the overcrowded atmosphere and make sure that you bring enough cash as it can get pricey. And yes, some patience will also be needed when it comes to finding a parking spot...
Total Bunnie Dollars Spent: $53 (including $2 entrance fee each).
