While there were a lot of stalls available, we carefully just chose a few to try for this 1st visit:
Wok-fried carrot cake is something that is very iconic to the Singapore hawker scene. Whether you like it white or black, this is one thing everyone enjoy a lot. However, it was my first time to try Salted Egg Carrot Cake and boy was I so excited!
This is a very popular snack from Hong Kong. Rich and spicy curry sauce cooked with plump fish balls. I love how springy the fish balls were but the sauce was just tooooo spicy for me.
I love Singapore's popiah and I've been hearing a lot about Good Chance so I was really excited to try this when I saw that they have a stall here. For S$5, you get two rolls of popiah where you can choose if you want it spicy or just the regular flavored one. I got one of each and I have to warn you that the spicy was stuffed with minced chili inside. Bite with caution so as not to burn your tongue!
This was our favorite among all the things that we've sampled that day. Yummy pandan flavored churros with gula melaka sauce and desiccated coconut. The sweetness level was just right and trust me, one churros stick is not enough as it was just so good!
This just got to be the most popular food item in the food fair. In almost every table, you'll find someone munching on either a huge stick of deep-fried squid and grilled squid. It's really so big that the size is double an iPhone 6! I love the sweet BBQ sauce and the fact that the squid was very tender.
We enjoyed our visit to the Singapore Food Festival the first time that we invited our dear friends, the Googly Gooeys and D to have dinner there last week. Here are a few more dishes which we shared among the 5 of us:
Pong also got the Chee Cheong Fan with Liver and Mushroom which I think was very yummy! I'm so glad to be able to have the chance to check out this year's Singapore Food Festival once again. Now, the countdown begins for next year!
