The near mention of a night market has my name written all over it, especially when the main event is close to my stomach. It was the opening night of the Victoria Quay Night Market, held behind the E Shed Market at Victoria Quay where I witnessed the bustling crowd of foodies and food appreciators from all walks of life. The smells were flirtatious, each aroma seducing me to take advantage of the cuisine and have my way with it. Food loving is not child's play after all, so I knew that I had massive decisions to make and didn't want to be trapped in the familiar affliction of food envy. I paced up and down the market and set my heart on a few purchases, need less to say, Malaysian satay was a definite candidate followed by some authentic Moroccan feasting. I finished the night with some freshly made watermelon and mint gelato (which I unfortunately didn't get a photo because it was so gosh-darn delicious that I had to eat it all) which cleansed my palette and was what I was craving for after some rich splurging. If you're looking for something to do on a Thursday night and you're in the Fremantle area, be sure to check out the markets.
Cooking fresh Murtabak (Mince beef in between hand-rolled roti pastry)Indian food, great portion size...butter chicken is worth a try. More fresh MurtabakChicken and Beef satay cooked traditionally on charcoal Chicken satay, kutupat (compacted rice cakes) and cucumber. Highly recommend both the chicken and the beef.Murtabak (You can probably give this one a miss, you can definitely get better in Perth)Most delicious Shakshouka that I have ever had, perfect dish for winter. Teamed with Moroccan chicken tajine and cous cous. By the way, that Harissa sauce was out of this world, perfect flavour combination.
