World Street Food Congress | Food Event

Quick Thoughts:
Worth a try but don’t expect to be blown away.

  • Personal Rating: 3.5 / 5
  • Occasions: Great if you like to explore, not family friendly, unless your date is a a foodie and not too high maintenance not a first date suggestion
  • Likes: Good variety of food from a number of places and a few surprising yummies.
  • Dislikes: The space is not the best for events like that, Savour suffers from the same issues. Not wet weather ready, you’ll get stuck queuing in the rain or not be able to get to the restrooms.
  • Tip: Go with a bunch of friends that love to share, happy to explore and can rough it out a bit… then order a mix of food so you get to try a bunch of stuff and then if you need more satisfaction, home in on the ones that you like.

A couple of friends decided to organize a little excursion and I had oddly freed up to be able to join them. I must admit I was kind of apprehensive about food fares like that. While they get tonnes of love from the media and every “wanna be cool” person would flock there, the general quality of food or value has left more discerning company wanting. Either way can’t be entitled to say much until I tried it out myself no?

These looked amazing on the grill! Vietnamese, Chuoi Nuong Banana Sticky Rice

The first stall to catch my eye was the Vietnamese Chuoi Nuong Banana Sticky Rice, and if you like coconut as well as toasted rice, this is amazing. They wrapped a banana with sticky rice, grilled them in what I believe were banana leaves, and just before serving you, they break it up and dollop on a generous serving of coconut milk. Now I need to find out where I can find this in Singapore again!

Aside from the foray of usual Asian street food I was glad to find Mexican food too. These seafood Tostadas were small, relatively expensive but I liked them

I was kind of mixing it up between and sweet and savoury stuff and we had some pretty nice Indonesian Kue Pancong and Kue Pukis.

The Litti Chokha looked pretty amazing while they were grilling it but when I did order it, it did not taste good at all.
