What could be more Sydney than the Lunar Markets?

Following on from the ever-popular Night Noodle Markets, The Sydney Morning Herald Lunar Markets is giving Sydneysiders another opportunity to enjoy delicious Asian cuisine under the stars.

Following on from the ever-popular Night Noodle Markets, The Sydney Morning Herald Lunar Markets is giving Sydneysiders another opportunity to enjoy delicious Asian cuisine under the stars.

From tomorrow evening, Pyrmont Park will transform into a lively precinct of nightly entertainment, food and drinks to celebrate Lunar New Year as part of The Sydney Morning Herald NSW Food & Wine Festival presented by Citi.

The pop-up food festival, running across 11 nights from Thursday, February 12 to Sunday, February 22, offers an assorted feast from more than 20 food stalls, including popular Night Noodle Market regulars Hoy Pinoy, Baostop and The Star’s Fat Noodle. Torn between dumplings and pho? Bar Pho offers a creative solution with its trademark new combination dish: phumplings. If barbecued meat is more your thing, grab some robata skewers from Manly’s hottest new Japanese rock ‘n’ roll bar, Daniel San.

After dinner, welcome in The Year of the Ram with friends in a karaoke battle at the Sapporo Beer bar or relax with a drink at one of the fun seating areas from The Star and China’s national spirit, Moutai. Citi customers can enjoy access to reserved seating and a dedicated bar at the centre of the Lunar Markets.
