OK, super late post! Challenge night didn’t go according to plan because my friend, Sam, had rehearsals and couldn’t come on the night. The Three Muskaeats were down to two, so my friend John and I decided to just go to the markets and well...feast! John and I decided to try as much as what our stomachs would allow - and even though it felt like we ate a lot that night, there are still so many stalls we are yet to try. We will get to you, we promise.
The Rotorua Night Market is on Thursday nights, where part of Tutanekai Street (between Haupapa and Hinemoa Streets) is closed off to traffic. When I first went there two years ago, it was mainly a food market, but now there are more retail market stalls and buskers. Sam and John only found out about the $20 Best Eats Challenge when we parked up. Being the super competitive people that we are - it was definitely game on. A quick five minute walk to the markets itself and fifteen minutes to check out all the food stalls, it was on like Donkey Kong!
