Geylang Serai Ramadan Bazaar 2017, We try 8 voguish creations : Yay or Nay?

The Geylang Serai Ramadan Bazaar 2017 is back and bigger (and pricier) than ever! Amidst the high rentals, controversial Halal certified food stalls & illegal workers arrest, we present to you 8 hyped items we tried and tell you what’s yay what’s nay! We are looking to do another segment on the true blue traditional foods in Bazaar, so be sure to stay tune for that!

RACLETTE SET

Stall Name: The Raclette Factory ( Stall No. 78, near end of Blk 12 Haig Road)

Price: $12 (Raclette Set), $40 (Family Platter)

UNICORN STARLITE DRINK

Stall Name: Rainbow Works (Stall No. 29, opposite Tanjong Katong Complex, Engku Aman Rd)

Price: $9.90

Pro :  Definitely Insta-worthy & you get a free pink balloon !

Con:  The inflated price tag and the amount of sugars / calories in this drink

Verdict: 2/10 (if you are health conscious) , 7/10 (if you a social media aficionado)

ROASTED MARSHMALLOW ON A STICK

Stall Name: The Wicked Cream Co (Stall No. 26, opposite Tanjong Katong Complex, Engku Aman Rd)

Price: $4 for 3 cubes on a stick , add on for premium flavours

Pro : Taste as good as it looks (We recommend the Salted Egg & Charcoal Lemonade Marshmallow, Gula Melaka is the hot fav!)

Con:  Nothing except don’t spend too much time taking pictures like we did or they’ll fall apart haha

Verdict: 8/10

THAI MILK TEA SOFT SERVE

Stall Name: Loco Loco (Stall No. 7, opposite Tanjong Katong Complex, Engku Aman Rd)

SCOTCH EGGS

Stall Name: Loco Loco (Stall No. 7, opposite Tanjong Katong Complex, Engku Aman Rd)

Price: $5.50 (Chicken or Beef)

Pro : Perfect molten egg yolk centre! Crispy goodness, best eaten fried

Verdict: 7/10

RAINBOW SOFTSERVE

Stall Name: Happy Rollies (Stall 130, 131, 132 opposite Blk 12 Haig Road, Mini-Sou)

Price: $7

Pro : Can’t think of any

Con:  Melts in an instant, below average tasting & texture plus the swirls needs major work. Miles apart from those Rainbow Tower Softserve you get in Japan/Korea.

Verdict: 2/10 (Disclaimer : Opinions are made based on the day where the machine was not working well, we paid $4 instead of $7 for missing flavours)
