With lockout laws putting a downer on Sydney’s night life, what is there to do to have a fun Saturday night in Sydney? Well, Sydney’s west has a new legit attraction not to be missed: Paddy’s night food markets. They make use of the Flemington markets space which is generally dormant at night. Running each Saturday night from 6:30pm to 10:30pm, a bunch of food trucks rock up to create an instant and diverse food and drink event.
There is something for everyone: bring your friends, partner, kids and dogs. The event has a street party atmosphere with DJ’s pumping out tunes, street artists doing live art displays and hotted up cars doing laps. There are even arcade games to keep you occupied.
It does get busy so it is recommended that you get there early. It may even pay to have a plan, pick your favourites and disperse, allowing you to try all of your favourite options.
Be prepared to feel like a kid in a candy store, there is so much choice and it may get a little overwhelming, take a deep breath and rip in. Where to first???
Other options include Dirty Bird food truck, Holy Schnit, Bottom of the barrel BBQ and many more. If you are after something clean and tasty, hit up the guys and gals at poke bros. The salmon poke topped with sriracha mayo was the goods.
The Poke Bros Mars bar cheese cake also caught my eye, it was time to keep clear as this was devoured, defs not sharing this delight. Other dessert options including torch me creme brulee, gelato brioche dessert truck, perhaps retro rosie or even fluffy crunch for some tricked out fairy floss. So many choices and too many to name.
Finish up in a food coma, you may need a caffeine hit to help you get through it. Coffee in a cone seems to be all the rage at the moment, why not see what the fuss is all about and grab one from the good people @pull’nshots. Very impressed that they managed to bang out some latte art in the cone, especially at such a busy event.
