I shall begin my post on snacks with Singapore’s hot favourite – Salted Egg Yolk.
Hokkaido salted egg yolk cheese tarts.
Price: S$3/ piece and S$5.50/ 2 pieces.
Mini pineapple tart selling at S$15.80 each?!?! It is definitely a joke. Each small box of pineapple tarts is selling at S$15.80.
Hokkaido salted egg yolk cheese tarts and pineapple tarts are available at BakeINC.
Salted egg yolk buns from Kung Fu JB Bun.
This was one of the most delicious salted egg yolk charcoal puffs from Takashimaya Food Fest. Thick and hot salted egg yolk lava flowing out on the first bite. From Kele selling at S$12.80 for 6 pieces.
Whole salted egg yolk pastry from Amethyst Pantry and Cakes. Selling at S$6.50 each or 2 for S$12.
The tasty Japanese snacks that you would see at any Japanese food fairs in Singapore. Price varies for different varieties.
Queue for Takoyaki is one of the challenging tasks to do. Although the queue may seems short here, it is filled up to the stairs within minutes. Why was the queue for Takoyaki endless? Each moulding pan had to be cool down before cooking the second batch of Takoyaki. There are only three small moulded pans and one cook at Takashimaya Food Fest. Average waiting time is 45 minutes on peak hours. Each box of 6 pieces of Takoyaki balls is S$7.
Takoyaki is a Japanese snack made from wheat flour-based batter filled with diced tako (octopus), tempura scraps, pickled ginger and green onion. Takoyaki and mayonnaise sauce are sprinkled before adding shavings of dried bonito.
Each piece of Takoyaki was pipping hot, crispy on the outside and melting soft on the inside. It tasted just like the authentic Takoyaki balls from Osaka. Warning: A box of freshly made Takoyaki is incredibly hot. Find a table and feast in.
If you have missed the famous grilled and large deep fried crispy squids from Geylang Serai Ramadan Bazaar UYI, they are also available at Takashimaya Food Fest. Average waiting time is 15 minutes. Price for grilled squid at S$4 and large deep fried crispy squid at S$7.
The grilled squids are freshly cooked on the spot and coated with sauces.
Large deep fried crispy squid is of bigger size as compared to grilled squid selling at S$7. And there are 5 flavours to choose from.

Korean fresh fruits and snacks from Korea Agro-Fisheries & Food Trade Corporation.
Grilled fish and oden from Romantei.
