As you might have seen on the papers or your Instagram feed, many have been flocking to this year’s Ramadan Bazaar at Geylang Serai for some interesting street food.
Flavoured churros? Yes please! With a growing trend of churro-lovers, you can find more than just one stall here selling these highly Instagrammable deep-fried doughs.
Remember those ice cream rolls you had while you were in Bangkok? Good news because they are now here in Singapore too. Not sure what to try at this year’s Ramadan Bazaar? Here are 5 highlights from this year’s Ramadan Bazaar at Geylang Serai.
#1 FLAVOURED CHURROS
Trust us when we say that these are a must-try when you head down to the bazaar this year. The wide array of flavours include Pandan Churros with Gula Melaka Sauce (S$4.50), Red Velvet Churros with Salted Caramel Sauce (S$4.70) and the classic Churros (S$4.20) coated with cinnamon sugar.
The churros here are made fresh and we highly recommend munching on these immediately after receiving them – or after snapping a photo or two, if you must (and you must). There is a nice crunch to the churros and we could not stop raving about the sauces, especially the Gula Melaka one!
#2 THAI COCONUT ICE CREAM
We were delighted to find this gem of a store located at the side nearest to Paya Lebar MRT. Reminiscent of the ones at Chatuchak in Bangkok, this ice cream was topped off generously with corn, red rubies, atap seeds and also juicy young coconut flesh.
For just S$4, you get your dollars worth as this is a perfect choice to combat the heat and humidity there at the bazaar. There is also a range of other Thai food served here such as coconut pancakes and mango sticky rice.
#3 ICE CREAM ROLLS
Shared thousands of times on our Facebook pages, these ice cream rolls made fresh are a treat for everyone. As the most crowded stall in the bazaar, they even have an automated queue system and the wait ranges from 30min to 1 hour if you come after 7pm (post-breaking fast for Muslims).
You can choose between two ingredients for your ice cream rolls and these ingredients range from fresh fruits to chocolatey picks such as oreo. For S$5 a cup, we are definitely not complaining!
#4 DEEP-FRIED OREOS
This snack needs no introduction and we can all agree that it is one of the most delicious street food snacks we have ever eaten. And if you haven’t, what are you waiting for?
Coated in batter then deep-fried to a golden brown, these Oreo bites, drizzled with some chocolate sauce, is our definite guilty pleasure. They also have fried Mars bars and other mouth-watering snacks here!
While Takoyaki certainly isn’t something new at bazaars, the one at this year’s Ramadan Bazaar is probably one of the most delicious and value-for-money renditions yet. For just S$2.50, you get a portion of six takoyaki balls, sprinkled generously with bonito flakes and sauces.
You can choose different fillings such as the classic tako (octopus) and others like prawn, etc. The portion makes it an ideal sharing item. Save some tummy space for the other yummies ya?
