Messina's Lucky Fortune Bar Night Noodle Markets 2015

The Messina LUCKY FORTUNE BAR has been reincarnated for the 2015 Good Food Night Noodle Markets which kick off in Sydney tonight (8 October). We're bringing good luck and good fortune to Hyde Park in Sydney for 2 and half weeks or so where we'll be serving up 5 new menu items for you!

This year, our awesome friends at WONDERBAO have perfected an un-bao-lieable recipe for sweet sweet baos, perfect for us to fill with delicious gelato things, then roll around in more deliciously saucy things (all sounds rather fun to us). We've got 2 flavours of sweet BAO, plus our never-been-tasted-before balls (we've been planning to do for what seems like Zodiacs of years!).

We've also figured out the perfect deep fried ice cream ball, filled it with thai custard and then nestled it into Messina 'tinned fruit salad'.

If you're feeling pumped by the pressure at Night Noodle, you can grab one of two ready-to-go MESSINA WEALTH BARS flavours - there's no waiting around for cooking, steaming, saucing. You can sneak off to a corner, unwrap and devour one (or both) before hitting the next queue.

Read on for full details. See you there!
