Geylang Ramadhan Bazaar

Last Sunday, we went to Geylang Ramadhan Bazaar to check out the scene as well as hunt for food at this once a year Food Mecca!

First stop is the Putu Piring stall @ Banquet, Haig Road. You would always see customers forming a long queue just to get putu piring from this stall. When one really wants to eat it, am sure one is game enough to join in the queue. Small cakes of rice flour dough with gula melaka (palm sugar) topped with coconut .. it is putu piring-licious!

The stall also has a few awards to boot and all were proudly hung on its wall.

Next purchase was Ayam Percik - grilled chicken with spicy sauce. The taste of slightly charred chicken wings plus the sauce was truely just good!

I went to this stall called Boy. Rather cute boys selling these chicken wings and they look Malaysian too .. cute boys .. nice chicken .. always a bonus .. hahah

Otak-otak - fish paste wrapped in banana leaves.

This is another must buy for me. Slightly springy and spicy. Just the way I like it.

Keropok lekor, a long and chewy savoury cake, is a specialty of the state of Terengganu. Made up of fish, flour and seasonings, these are nice eaten hot. Sliced and fried just before serving,it is normally eaten with sauce. This is just one of the snacks that is rather addictive. My kids love them!

A food shopping frenzy indeed!

Colourful drinks


Barbequed wings

You tiao

and many many more. Go on a food hunt there. Lots of food to choose from. You'll be spoilt for choice. But only buy what you think you would eat. Afterall we want the food to end up in our tummies and not the bins right?
