For a city with such strong Chinese heritage, Darwin is surprisingly lacking in yum cha venues. What it has instead is a weekend culture of breakfasting and brunching on savoury snacks at the markets: Parap Village Markets (Parap Place; +61 8 8942 0805) on Saturday mornings; Nightcliff Markets (Progress Drive; +61 8 8948 3252) and Rapid Creek Sunday Markets (Trower Road; +61 8 8948 4866) on Sunday mornings. Popular choices include laksa, Vietnamese banh mi and Thai stuffed chicken wings.
