One of Melbourne’s greatest attributes is food, glorious food. With Good Food Month on during November, we thought it would be a great idea to visit the Night Noodle Markets with the kids. On a beautiful Tuesday evening, I arranged to meet my husband in the city and get there early to beat the crowds.

As the kids I drove along looking for parking, the monkey was attached to his third appendage (aka blanky) and fairy was looking too cool for school.

The logistics of heading into the city at “witching hour” soon caught up with us. I did not have enough coins to feed the parking meter and monkey had a meltdown in the throngs of the crowds, but he was soon placated with a massive bowl of pho.

It was a beautiful setting for the noodle markets and plenty on offer for every preference of Asian cuisine.

We shared a plate of Ā pancakes for dessert, which were an absolute rip off at $10 for a plate of 10 bites (literally)!

So often in the evening hours of dinner, bath and bed, we don’t get the time to just sit and watch. The kids had a ball running around with chopsticks while we enjoyed a cold glass of wine and beer and stopped for a moment.

Unfortunately reality bit quite hard, when we arrived back to the car to this šŸ™ Oh well, c’est la vie!
