The boyfriend and I decided to go to the Queen Victoria Night Market last night to celebrate my freedom (yes, did I mention that exams are finally over?). Being a person who usually spends summer overseas, I miss out on the night markets so I was really excited that I got to go this year. And I wasn’t disappointed.
There was so much food. And a wide variety too. From the famous Mamak roti to buffalo wings, and even Arabian cuisine. Much to my surprise, there was a stall selling Philly cheesesteaks! I was super excited. For $12, I got a decent-sized meal, and being a person who doesn’t usually eat too much, I was satisfied. Obviously, I’ve never had a “real” cheesesteak so I had zero expectations whatsoever. Maybe that’s why it was so good. There were also your usual market snacks, i.e. those twisty potato things on a stick (I have no idea what they’re called). And there was lots of gelato!
As soon as we walked in, we saw heaps of people with sangria. I was in the mood for a celebration so I was definitely looking for some alcomahol. Mind you, I’d already had a frozen margarita while waiting for the boyfriend. We found a stall advertising $12 cocktails and sangria was $8 for a substantial amount. However, the boyfriend suggested we go to a nearby bar for sangria that was $5 per glass. Best idea! Unfortunately, I didn’t catch the name of that bar 😦 But it’s right opposite the market and kinda hard to miss.
There were also other stalls selling your usual market-y trinkets, as well as buskers and bands for entertainment. I loved the atmosphere, even though it was a little hot, and it made for a nice relaxing night spent with a loved one. Would go back again.
The Queen Victoria Night Market is open every Wednesday night from 5pm-10pm until 26th Feb.
