It’s look­ing all right to grab a bite tonight

Sunday Territorian - - NEWS - MOLLY BAX­TER

THE rain gods have an­swered and Mindil is ex­pected to de­liver the big­gest and best mar­kets to date as well as an almighty food coma.

Fire­works, live en­ter­tain­ment and a new look are all part of what’s promis­ing to be a great open­ing mar­ket af­ter rain forced Thurs­day’s can­cel­la­tion.

Food stalls, a huge traf­fic driver for the mar­kets, now take up the whole beach­front walk.

All the favourites are back to tempt you with some new ad­di­tions of Rus­sian, oc­to­pus, French, Lush Ice pop­si­cles and an in­dige­nous bak­ery with more than 60 food stalls bring­ing a blend of in­ter­na­tional cuisines.

Michael Pikos’s Char­coal and Pick­led Oc­to­pus prom­ises fresh Tas­ma­nian oc­to­pus with a Greek twist.

He said he would have about 300kg of oc­to­pus af­ter sell­ing out at Palmer­ston mar­kets on Fri­day night.

“I sold out of 500 pieces so I’ll have more than that,” he said.

“I had peo­ple com­ing back for sec­onds to take home.”

Rush’n Hour owner Xe­nia Muz­ica is bring­ing a piece of Rus­sia to Dar­win with tra­di­tion pork and veal dumplings and borscht – a pop­u­lar beet­root soup.

“I’ve had pretty good suc­cess in all my other events and peo­ple are now look­ing out for me,” she said.

The mar­kets are on from 4pm to 9pm to­day and sun­set is at 6.34pm.
