Although you can’t get Korbq’s ever-so-popular-at-the-Markets chicken waffle at their Civic or Belconnen restaurants, you can snap up their original Korean fried chicken in its place.

Some may remember these little babies at last year’s festival and guess what—you can find Superbao’s bao-gers at either their Dickson or Verity Lane Market locations! Winning!

While Market favourite Hoy Pinoy is based in Melbourne, we’ve found a local spot to get your Filipino BBQ fix—Lolo & Lola’s in Watson.

Menu options include adobo, Bagnet and Manila-style ensaymadas.


Shin Sen Teppanyaki

Do you remember the infamous flying noodles from last year’s Markets? Well, we’ve got you covered with another sort of gravity-defying deliciousness!

Shin Sen Teppanyaki in Dickson offers a thoroughly entertaining dining experience, with their chefs the stars of the show.

A combination of Lao and Thai cuisine with after-dark vibes on the main street of Braddon, you’ll be able to satisfy those market-style cravings with Zaab’s Pad Thai, satay and noodles.

Zaab has got it all—and serves it with class.

Yum, yum, yum, is all we have to say! Deep-fried banana fritters, peanut crumble and banana gelato was on offer last year’s Markets, however, it isn’t available on Gelato Messina’s regular menu.

However, if you’re after those crazy dessert designs, Braddon’s Messina or Frugii is the place to be. Ice cream heaven, ahoy!

Made fresh, in-house daily, Kynefin also offers gluten free and vegan options.

Who doesn’t love a good waffle? Better yet, one with an abundance of goodness chucked on top.
