Chanced upon a pasar malam at Serangoon Central recently. It is located near to Nex shopping mall along the roadside. As usual, scanning along the street for any good foods. Stepping into a pasar malam, you’ll noticed many foods from different regions such as Singapore, Japan, Taiwan, Thailand, Spain, Middle East etc. It was a fruitful night. Besides all-time street food at pasar malam, I have also found many local food gem that were lost and found in Singapore. Definitely not the usual pasar malam that you visit! The food list, but not limited to:
- Traditional Oyster Cake (Teochew Meat Puff)

Teochew meat puff next pasar malam location: Lot One at Choa Chua Kang by end of October 2016.
The Teochew Meat Puff that made me go crazy to queue for at least 45 minutes. Well, I’m not the most crazy one. Spotted someone bought 25 pieces at one go. Do not underestimate the size of this UFO. It is bigger than what you see on the screen now. Really mad love over this UFO oyster cake. Beneath thin crispy crust, the minced meat and diced mushroom is very well marinated and is not so salty. It also comes with chinese celery, do request a special order if you don’t eat it. The uncle is generous with the ingredients, you get 2 pieces of fat oysters for oyster cake and 1 whole piece of scallop for scallop cake. Wondering how to differentiate the different fillings? You can easily spot by the peanut pattern dressed on the UFO cover. Peanuts that were clustered together at a corner is oyster. Two peanuts on 4 UFO corner is scallop. And lastly, ikan bilis spread equally is vegetable. If you have missed this chance, visit their Facebook on the next pasar malam or visit another hawker stall selling Fu Zhou Oyster Cake at Berseh Food Centre.
All-time picks for Otah Otah which I have discovered in the last pasar malam at Geylang Serai Ramadan Bazaar 2016. It still taste as good as it is.
This is one of the long lost childhood street foods, Malt Candy and Ting Ting Candy. No longer do we get to hear any “ting ting ting” from our neighbourhood anymore.
Mini fun fair that is popular among family.
The last day of Serangoon Central Pasar Malam is 9 October 2016, Sunday. It’s less than 3 days left before its all gone. Bring enough small notes cash, tissues and also patience queuing for your favourite foods.
