Outdoor restaurants, quirky local snacks, and a wealth of cuisines all add to the tourist s culinary experience in Darwin. Plan your breakfast, lunch, and dinner — because food is an essential condiment to life.
Darvin tourism must not miss a visit to the local market, where you can enjoy specialty food, local art, handicrafts and music. Remember to have a bowl of Mary s famous laksa (spicy rice noodles), curry bacon, or freshly squeezed mixed fruit juice. Otherwise, the visit to the Paro Village Market on Saturday morning is incomplete.
You can stroll around the Nightcliff bazaar on Sundays, starting with a scone shop, served with strawberry and chocolate hazelnut sauce for breakfast, and enjoy the live drum beats. There are also some interesting small shops selling environmentally friendly soaps, fiber products and local clothing .
The Rapid Creek Sunday Market is the best place to buy local vegetables and fruits, especially Asian herbs. Here you can enjoy a Thai massage or a little homemade mango chutney and jam. It is open every Sunday morning throughout the year.
Mindil Beach Sunset Markets is by far the largest market in the Northern Territory, open every Thursday and Sunday evening from May to October. Bring a bottle of wine and a blanket to find a comfortable spot on the beach and watch the famous Darwin sunset. For sweets, try chocolate-filled fried churros, or try Malaysian satay. Vegetarians can try Lucky Cow s felafel wrap.
Fannie Bay is famous for its beautiful scenery and expensive land. Of course, dining here is much cheaper than buying a house. You can have breakfast at the Cornucopia Museum coffee bar and have a sparkling drink. But remember to book.
Across the road is the Darwin Ski Club. The food here is popular and the bay is amazing. Or try it at the Cool Spot Coffee Bar, a popular little restaurant that serves delicious light meals and snacks. Pee Wee s seafood is very famous , especially the soft-shelled serrata crab. For dessert, be sure to try chocolate bars-it s awesome!
Darwin s food centres are concentrated near Mitchell and Knuckey Street, where restaurants, cafés and bars are everywhere. For breakfast, Café Uno offers delicious roasted avocado, tomato and cheese croissants. Coffee lovers can head to Café 21 on the pedestrian street. For something fresh, try the lemon curd coconut bread at Roma, and the maple syrup French toast and bacon at Ducks Nuts.
More More lunch options in the Central Business District. You can go for sushi at Go Sushi, try Caesar salad at Wisdom Bar \\ u0026 Café, or crispy and delicious roast duck at Roast and Noodle. Have a snack at the Tasty House, try tapas at the Moorish cafe, or stir fry your own way at Magic Wok. There is a row of taverns serving fish and potato sticks, hamburgers and sandwiches. Visiting Kitty OShea s, Shennanigans or Fox Ale House is also a good choice .
Darwin s dinner can be either a fine dinner or a casual snack, and visitors can choose freely. For succulent steaks and fine wines go to Char Restaurant @ Admiralty. For delicious curries go to Hanuman. Or enjoy Italian delicacies at Giuseppe s, drink colorful cocktails and taste modern Australian dishes at the Monsoons restaurant.
The waterside dinner at Crooked Bay offers a variety of seafood delicacies and a wide bay view. You can also taste Italian, Thai, Greek and French cuisine. Fresh oysters are a specialty of Yots Greek Taverna. In
BeachLa Beach Try barramundi, try juicy bug tails at takeaway fish and potato strip shops, or have a glass of sparkling wine at Buzz Cafe. There are plenty of restaurants on the promenade overlooking the pier, so you don t have to worry about having your favorite choice.
I watched the yachts and sailboats come and go in and out of the port, and watched the diners feed the moonfish with crushed food. Most of the food here is a picnic-style takeaway: a pot full of stir-fried fried noodles, beer with barramundi, squid, and more. Before you leave, be sure to go to the ice cream parlor and let the creamy or mint chocolate flavor balls wake up your taste buds.
Renowned for its bazaars, Zamparo also has a number of diverse and less well-known restaurants. Try grilled sizzling Mongolian beef or the steaming Mexican spicy dishes at Pickles at The Happy Garden Chinese Restaurant. Then go to The Cyclone Cafe or Paraparazzi for a cup of coffee and a cake. If you want to stock up on some delicacies, head to Parap Fine Foods, which has great deli and French homemade bread
