We’ve seen signages (near Three Monkeys) for the Boundary Street Markets for quite a while but because it’s only opened at night on Fridays (we want to check out the night market), we only finally went to the market tonight!
It’s obvious from the crowd how popular this place is! 😉
Absolutely starved, the first store we hit was The Wing Stand:
We ordered our wings with ‘Buffalo Sauce’ and ‘Lemon Pepper Sauce’; we wanted to try the ‘Suicide Sauce’ but it was obviously suicidal for Darien and J, so D had to give that a miss. As much as J’s tolerance for spicy food has increased and she could take the ‘Buffalo Sauce’, she still preferred the ‘Lemon Pepper Sauce’.
Walking around, the next store to catch our eyes with the huge oven/grill was Joe’s Texan BBQ:
As we observed how meat was grilled, we noted that the meat looked very charred:
Priced at $20, Joe’s Texan BBQ‘s ‘Beef Short Rib Plate was worth it for the quality and quantity we got:
Yes, the meat still looked charred but somehow did not taste charred; in fact, the meat was tender, juicy and tasty!
We paid only $8 for the Turkish Gozleme, which is definitely value-for-money considering the generous amount of dips that complemented the gozleme!
Actually, we ordered a potato twister/swizzle too:
Terrible choice, it was soggy instead of crispy, we didn’t like it.
We then decided to check out The Motor Room, “a vibrant, fully functional warehouse venue in West End. Previously the engine room of the old Peter’s ice-cream factory, the space is now fitted with shipping-container bar, 200m2 graffiti mural, new and vintage furniture, tap beers, pro stage, lighting and audio, all enclosed by a large breezy deck, making the Motor Room the new venue that has everyone talking – and dancing“:
We wanted to grab a drink but there weren’t seats for us to chill at so we decided to go to the indoor market and then head down to Archive Beer Boutique.
Quite some artsy stuff in the indoor market but these cut-out/pop-up cards caught our attention:
According to Chris Woutersz, owner of Classy Cards, he brings the cards in from China and though there is already quite a variety at the stall, he says there are more designs on his Facebook Page. The cards cost between $5 for small square cards to $10 for a bigger card with more complex design.
You may find Chris at the Boundary Street Markets on Fridays (4pm to 10pm) and Saturdays (9am to 3pm) as well as at the Eagle Farm Markets on Sundays (7am to 1230pm).
If you find a design you like, you may contact Chris at his mobile (+61) 0408 873 986 or via e-mail.
Can’t remember where specifically we read this, but apparently West End Tea Co. does pretty good chai latte:
To our dismay, it was closed for the evening… Don’t think it’s because we’re too late (it was only 9 pm), but then again, maybe we were?
We didn’t actually shop a lot but we loved the food, so we’re definitely coming back for more! 🙂
