Brisbane is finally stepping up their street food game with the Eat Street Markets and we went to check it out tonight with a couple of our Canadian friends.
We arrived shortly after it opened for the night to beat the crowds and secure a decent parking spot. From the moment we walked in, there was so much to take in. This place is full of reclaimed/reused goodness and has a decent selection of international dishes, too.
Taking their cues from Asian night markets, the organizers have transformed the Hamilton Wharf into a food market using shipping containers as mini restaurants and astroturf-covered wooden pallets and cable spools as seating.
As the sun started to set, the beautiful twinkly lights came on and the whole place came alive with chatter and movement.
The atmosphere was so good. It was nice to be out on a Friday night again, in a place where we don't have to worry about our boys see drunk people stumbling around them. We had space to just chill out and catch up with our friends, and there was so much food!
Five dishes, two desserts and 1.5L of organic tea later, we were stuffed with yummy food and ready to head home.
This was a fabulous way to finish off our week.
Happy weekend everyone!
