You can choose from various flavours and since we couldn’t decide, we went with the ‘Shanghai’ for a mix of the different toppings like preserved veg, spice, etc. Liked that they don’t fry these so it wasn’t greasy, but it’s like a biscuity flatbread with a nice crunch. It wasn’t too heavily seasoned and works well as a healthy snack.

Grabbed a cup of this at the cashier thanks to the staff’s recommendation. Each rice cake is wrapped in a piece of seaweed. They were soft and chewy with a lovely soy sauce aroma. $2.50 for 6 pieces of these worked as a good snack!


Was in Tiong Bahru and googled for small bites - Leung Sang Hong Kong Pastries were the first few results for their traditional HK style egg tarts! Lightly sweetened egg custard in a buttery and flaky crust, it was a good snack to have! If you’re not a fan of the flaky crust, they also have the normal Western egg tart crust at the same price.


First had 串串 in Guangzhou last year and have been hoping to have them again, so I was super excited to see this new stall up in the food area just outside People’s Park Complex (aka where you find all sorts of China Chinese dishes). The skewers at Happy Cat are $1 for each meat skewer and $1.50 for every 2 vegetable skewers.

Grab a cup, pick the skewers you want and the servers will help to dip them into a spicy sauce. Most skewers I had in Guangzhou gave an option of a hot or cold dip, but this was only available cold. However, while I liked the freshness of the ingredients and the ‘numbness’ of the spicy dip, thought the dip could be a lot more fragrant and I would have preferred lesser sesame sauce in the mix.

Teochew Meat Puff’s oyster cake has been my ultimate favourite ever since I’ve first had them 2 years back. It’s slightly pricier than others but just look at HOW STUFFED IT IS?! The classic oyster version has plump and fresh oysters, but if they aren’t your thing, they have other options like prawns, octopus, crab, vegetable and scallop. It’s well seasoned and remains crisp even after being set aside a while. Also, because it’s so generously portioned, it’s very filling and can almost replace a meal 😂

You can only get Teochew Meat Puff when they do pasar malams (usually in the East), so follow their Facebook page for more updates. They’re currently in Serangoon Central till 3rd February 19 from 1pm to 10pm daily!


Was craving for something cheesy and as luck would have it, spotted Teppei Syokudo’s new mozzarella stick at their takeaway outlet in Takashimaya’s food hall. This reminded me a lot of Lotteria’s cheese sticks in Korea!! For 2 bucks the portion was not too bad. I enjoyed the stretchy mozzarella it had, though it’s not as generous as Lotteria’s. Thought the batter could be much thinner and crunchier, but it still worked pretty well as a snack.

Update: Passed by and saw that the stick now goes for $3 - it doesn’t feel as worth it as it was previously.

Throwback to the har cheong gai burger months back! McDonald’s has since quietly put up the same cutlet as a side for $2. It feels a little smaller (flatter?) than the original patty but tastes pretty much the same. Prawn paste flavour wasn’t that strong but it was still an affordable and satisfying snack! Skin was crispy and meat tender, albeit a little too fatty.


Pricey for chips but soooo addictive! I felt the guilt every time I reached into the bag to grab some, but that thick salted egg coating on every single piece of chip was hard to resist. Crunchy and surprisingly wasn’t too salty or jelak. There’s a small bag too at $8, while the other chips available include Salted Egg Fish Skin ($16 for Big, $8 for Small) and Salted Egg Cassava Chips ($15 for Big, $7.50 for Small).


Was looking around for a snack and spotted Old Chang Kee’s newest item on the menu, the Cheesy-licious Chicken’O. It’s basically the classic Curry’O with added cheddar and mozzarella. The filling to crust ratio can definitely be improved on (they don’t have egg in this) and it was a pity that the cheesy fragrance was much stronger than the actual taste of it. I’d still go for the classic instead!


No frills snack that’s not as commonly found nowadays! The crowd seems to be quite regular so that also means you’d most likely get served hot piping ones. They were quite oily but crispy on the outside and soft inside.

This neighborhood bakery has my friend’s fav waffles! I’ve been around the area weekly but was finally drawn in by the lovely whiffs of fresh bakes. It wasn’t the thin crispy sort, but I loved the chewiness the batter had (even when I left it aside for a while)! Cheese melted nicely into it and the lady was so nice. She meticulously arranged the slice of cheese in a way that it covers as much surface area, or should I say waffle area - if you always order cheese waffles you’d get why I appreciate this!

Small piece but packed with a fragrant and slightly spiced savoury filling! All the colors here are obtained naturally from ingredients like sweet potato and that gave it an additional subtle sweetness.

We also had a try of their Ondeh Ondeh ($2.50) but the skin could be softer and less thick for better texture.
