Decided to do a post on the Geylang Serai Hari Raya Bazaar since I visited it 5 times this year! Despite the insane crowd, perspiration from strangers rubbing against my arms, and crazy heat, the food and drinks were good enough to keep me going back.
Churros from Loco Loco!! So good I had to have it 3 times!
From L-R: Assorted churros ($5.50–> original, pandan, red velvet, oreo), Assorted churros ($5.50–> original, pandan), Salted egg yolk churros ($6)
Loved the salted egg yolk churros the most. The sauce was creamy but not too sweet, and the salted egg could actually be tasted unlike the one I had at the iLight Festival this year which was too sweet and had no hint of salted egg AT ALL. Also, they were soooo generous with the salted egg sauce that there was actually some leftover in the cup yumz. As for the assorted cup, I honestly couldn’t tell the difference between the original, pandan, red velvet and oreo after the gula melaka sauce was poured over. However, I still highly recommend Loco Loco as the texture of their churros are amazing- crisp on the outside and doughy on the inside!
Really can’t remember which stall I got these ice cream rollies from… but in the picture is thai iced tea + oreo rollies topped w/ koko krunch & marshmallows! The only downside to this was that the thai iced tea wasn’t really mixed properly?? and hence I could still taste the powder while eating. Had to drink a lot of water after which but I guess I was just unlucky that day..
Double Fried Russets ($5.90) and Classic Ice Limau ($2) from KATOSHKA. So upset that I only tried their double fried russets on my 5th visit to the bazaar 😦 IT WAS SO GOOD that I’m craving for it now even though I just had it!! Chose the sour ranch sauce which was so amazing I couldn’t stop until the entire cup was finished. They also serve their russets with BBQ, special cheese or salted yolk sauce. Sampled the other 3 sauces but still think that the sour ranch was the nicest and most unique one. There was already a queue even before they opened their stall but despite the long queue, I would say that their service is rather efficient. Moreover, the staff taking the order always serves her customers with a smile making the experience so much more pleasant. 🙂 100% recommended, so worth the wait!
MOON VIET COFFEE ($3)
After having iced coffee in Vietnam, I never expected to come across anything similar or EXACTLY the same in Singapore. But today, I DID. On my first sip, this cup of iced coffee won me over. Warning: very sweet, but that’s exactly how Vietnamese coffee is so if you don’t have a liking for sweet stuff don’t go for it!! But if you do, maybe even 3 cups won’t be enough.
- If you’re gonna get thai iced tea/thai green milk tea, don’t bother getting those that are $3/$4 with brands on their cups. Just find and get the $1.50 one cause they all taste the same.
- Can never go wrong with old school ramly burger ($3.50)! Still tastes as good as the first time I had it years ago.
- If you’re planning to have tako balls, find the 6 for $2 ones! Cheap and yummy.
- Popcorn chicken is just like any other ordinary popcorn chicken. I mean, what else could you expect from it?? HAHA
- Wouldn’t go for the taiwanese cheese potato again ($4.50). Was rather disappointing though it was my first time ever trying it.
Well.. so I thought that my 5th visit would have been the last but guess I was wrong.
Headed back to the bazaar for my 6th and 7th visit! (On the second last and last day!!)
Had my favourites as usual and tried a couple of new items as well 🙂
Double Fried Russets ($5.90)
Had the russets from Katoshka again but they were a huge disappointment this time round.. They were cold and soggy and I regretted not picking the sour ranch sauce. Instead, I decided to give the salted yolk sauce a chance and immediately regretted it on my first mouth.
Dutch Homemade Pancakes aka Poffertjes ($2.50)
These pancakes were amazing- So soft and chewy. My only regret is not ordering 10 as they were gone so quickly 😦 Definitely not be missed at any bazaar in future!
Giant Fried Squid ($7)
Yup, it simply tastes as good as it looks! Worth the calories and whatever else.
Only downside was that it was hard to bite it off the stick… But then again, who cares how you look when you’re eating something this good??
