Though I’ve lived in Melbourne all my life, I’ve only ever made it down to the Queen Vic Night Market twice, the second time being last Wednesday. We arrived just a bit before 5:30pm and there was already a crowd building…
We got a table right near the mini stage before we all went to scout out some food. For me, I was on a mission to try some Germany sausages! My uncle (who is also a bit of a foodie!) had been raving about them for a while so I was determined to find out what they were all about…
I wasn’t sure which to choose so the lady behind the counter suggested the ‘Kransky’. I added Onions and Cheese for $1 each.
The bread was like a Vietnamese roll which made it a bit crumbly to eat but it was worth it. The Kransky, which apparently originates from Poland (so says the half-Polish guy sat beside me), was rich in flavour and very different from the humble snags that I’m used to on the Aussie barbie. Onions were a bit cold so I’d probably skip it when I try a Bratwaurst next time.
I wasn’t quite full yet and was keen for some Dutch Pancakes however, one of the girls highly recommended Honey Dumplings so…
I was recommended to try the Honey Dumplings with chocolate and ice-cream and then requested a sprinkle cinnamon and nuts on top ($7.50).
So what are honey dumplings? Essentially, they are deep fried balls of doughnut dough dipped in honey and then the topping as described above. It was YUM! Lol, there are 5 in a serve but it is incredibly filling so I got some of the guys to share some. I liked how the chocolate topping froze dry… haven’t had Ice Magic for a long, long time!
As for the rest of the market, most things are overpriced but if you have the time you might find a good bargain. The atmosphere is great though and of course food a plenty :D. The Night Market is on for two more Wednesdays (until the end of Feb) for grab a few friends and have a great night out!
In total, I spent $17.00 on food that night and so set aside $8.50 for the Eat Out:Help Out Project.
