twilight hawker market–eat drink perth 2011



Sizzling satay, chefs on stilts and huge paellas are just a few of the things that made the first Twilight Hawker Market a raving success. It was unbelievably crowded – more to support the cause that  casual, fun and multicultural food events are what Perth people want.

There was an amazing variety of food – Romanian food, Moroccan dishes, Columbian empanadas, Turkish gozlemes, Spanish paella, pintxos and Malaysian satay.

Phew, that’s a mouthful.

We didn’t get to taste everything – in fact, we only got to taste the satay because the crowds and queues were getting crazy. Hopefully next week the markets will be better spaced out. I wouldn’t mind going back for some handmade empanadas (by Abstract Gourmet’s Matt’s wife) and tasty gozleme, hot off the griddle.

So, get in quick – the Twilight Hawker Market is held on Friday nights during this month, so there’s only three more to go.

    Tessa – Hi Tessa! Unfortunately the Hawker Market is shut for winter but there is a similar (undercover, thank goodness) concept at the end of July and August called the Winter Supper Club. It would be a good opportunity to have a look at the town hall and the Winter Arts Festival. Check it out here: The market in Melbourne must have been awesome – was it the Suzuki Night Markets? Heard good things about that one.
