Food lovers rejoice

Good Food Month returns to Brisbane.

From the sizzle of street food to two-hatted culinary masterpieces, Brisbane’s Good Food Month has something for everyone.

Fairfax Head of Food Events Venessa Cowell said Good Food Month was highly anticipated by food-lovers across Australia.

“The Brisbane food scene is finessed, dramatic and innovative and we wanted to showcase that in this year’s Good Food Month’s program,” Ms Cowell said.

“We’ve got one-off, unique collaborations across three feature events that food lovers of Brisbane will be very excited about.”

Feature events include the Lûmé x GOMA evening of modern art and modern food, the Young Chefs Lunch which showcases the next generation of superstar chefs and an evening with chef, author and television personality Adam Liaw.

The popular Night Noodle Markets will return to South Bank. This sizzling food market under the stars is the perfect place to sample the best street food from southern Asia, including Japan, The Philippine, Vietnam and Taiwan. 

Top five picks at the Brisbane Night Noodle Markets

  1. Pho: It’s hard to go past a steaming bowl of traditional Vietnamese noodle soup on a cold winter night.
  2. Bao: Sticky steamed buns packed with meat (traditionally pork) or vegetables. Don’t let the size fool you, bao are very filling.
  3. Gyoza: Bite-sized pan-fried dumplings stuffed with meat and vegetables. Best served with soy sauce and a cold beer.
  4. Twissto: Also known as potato slinkies, this deep-fried potato snack originated in Korea and is popular throughout Asia.
  5. Gelato Messina: A Night Noodle Market favourite, fresh-churned gelato is the perfect way to end your Night Noodle Market experience.
