Twilight Hawkers Market returns this October

Perth’s original and largest hawkers market is back next week for another round of balmy Friday nights and delectable street food.

Since 2011, stalls within the Twilight Hawkers Market have been dishing up mouth-watering cuisine from more than 40 countries around the globe.

With an updated calendar, the popular food market will continue to be held at Forrest Place every Friday from 20 October to 15 December. Following a break over the festive period, the market will reopen in 2018 on 2 February until 23 March.

There will be new and exciting stalls as well as old favourites to explore in this year’s market setting.

From the Netherlands and Germany to Italy and Spain, there will be plenty of European influences alongside exotic Asian cuisine. With live local music adding to the cultural atmosphere, it’s the perfect Friday night out.

This year, a plethora of Perth traders are taking part and below is a glimpse of what will be on offer.

Eat Me Ramen 
Eat Me Ramen is a new favourite among those who appreciate an enormous bowl of satisfying Japanese goodness. Next time you’re headed to the Twilight Hawkers Market, get a good taste of the umami bomb ramen. Opting for the mouth-watering chicken on the side isn’t a bad idea, either.

Niko Niko Onigiri
Also hailing from the land of the cherry blossom trees, this Japanese stall provides the perfect Asian snack – Onigiri. Here, rice is rolled into a small ball to provide for easy eating. A nostalgic food for the Japanese, the concept started in the Nara period before the use of chopsticks.

The Croquetas Bar
Transport yourself to Spain with this glorious little croquetas stall. A common sight on bar counters across Spain, these crumbed and cheesy savoury pieces are normally served as a tapa or light lunch.

Superstar Waffles
A favourite in Northbridge, Superstar Waffles never disappoints when it comes to dessert, or dinner for that matter. Incorporating traditional American style waffles with exciting toppings, you’ll never feel dissatisfied. Opt for a classic maple syrup or a gourmet topping such as Cointreau-soaked strawberries with mascarpone ice-cream.

We all know this 140 favourite. A German stall boasting the best in brotzeit and bratwursts, this is the perfect way to enjoy an authentic European dish.
