So it’s the season for the Night Market again~ Boyfriend and I went on a Sunday night and just had our “dinner” there.
Not sure if it’s because of the ‘recession’, but there were a lot less vendors. There were quite a bit of empty tents, so in total there was only about 1.5 to 2 actual rows of vendors (minus the empty tents).
The food area, however, was doing much better. There were still quite a few vendors with only a couple empty ones here and there.
Now on to the food!
Now this is one vendor we visit every time. She sells Vietnamese drinks for $4 each. One summer we went on a rainy day and we got 2 for $5…gotta try that again sometime.
Our pick is always this one. It has everything. There’s fruit-flavored jelly, pandan jelly, big red beans, and mung bean paste in it, among other things. Also coconut milk.
We forgot what it’s called heehee but it’s #4 on the menu if you’re interested.
Next we came upon a new vendor. They’re called Point Zero and they sell what’s supposed to be charcoal-grilled skewers. They were EXTREMELY smoky. When we were getting our drink we saw all the smoke and for a second I thought maybe there’s a fire.
They have friendly prices…almost all of the choices were just $1 each.
We picked the chicken knee (they call it knuckle), pork jowl (neck meat?), and the pork intestines. They ask how spicy you want it. They were pretty good.
We’ve always gotten grilled squid from on vendor. However this time we saw people walking around with this big box of squid so we were on a mission to find it.
I think we found it here (although there were many other places that sell it in similar ways). It was $5 and again they ask for your preferred spiciness level.
It didn’t live up to our expectations though. Even with the seasoning we found it tasting quite bland. I think next time we’ll go back to our trusted vendor.
However at the same tent Boyfriend was enticed by their Lamb Pie. It was $2.
It was surprising good. The lamb was very tasty and ‘lamb-y’. Boyfriend especially liked the wrap they used.
So it might not seem like we had a lot of food but we were quite filled by now. However, we still had one last thing from this vendor.
They sell everything deep-fried haha. Taiwanese fish-cake, yam fries, squid, and chicken nuggets.
We opted for their large size for $5.50. You can either pick one item or 2 items. We chose the fish-cake and the chicken nuggets. Everything is fried to order.
I enjoyed the nuggets but I thought the fish-cake were sliced too thin, more like chips. Otherwise, it was good.
