BBQ satay chicken with Thai peanut sauce @ Kinn Dining stall

taste: ★★★★✩

I must admit the chicken was well worth it. I’ve never tried satay chicken with Thai peanut sauce but this combination was excellent! Salad was pretty boring, no dressing plus it was like they had just picked it out from the gardens and layered it beneath the chicken but still, well worth the $10 paid.

These curry puffs were quite standard and wasn’t as crunchy as I would have expected.
taste: ★★✩✩✩

BBQ pork buns from ‘Let’s Do Yum Cha’ stall
$2.50 each or 5 for $10

So the below box only cost$5. At the time of purchase (8.30pm), this store decided to put up a 50% off all food sign, so seeing this, we decided to try some. The 50% was for a reason, it was probably late already so the food was not fresh whatsoever. It was quite dry and bland and the prawn crackers (despite free), was dry and had been exposed for so long it no longer was crunchy anymore.

Overall, the Night Noodle markets atmosphere was great, and the food we ordered turned out better than we expected. The prices for food here are a little bit more expensive than your usual markets food, but it’s only once a year- so well worth trying 🙂
