If you're a fellow Westie who loves pasar malam food, you'll be pleased to learn that there is an ongoing bazaar next to Bukit Batok MRT station from now till May 29, 2019.
With a mix of local favourites and overseas creations, here are some stalls to look out for:
1. Teochew meat puffs
Undoubtedly the highlight of this food fair, these Teochew meat puffs by the Hoo family are a traditional local delicacy.
There are five variations: oyster-pork, prawn-pork, octopus-pork, crabstick-pork, scallop-pork, and vegetable.
Prices range from S$1.80 for a vegetable puff to S$3.50 for a scallop-pork puff.
These meat puffs are so popular that long, snaking queues have been spotted:
Past reviews of the meat puffs have also been overwhelmingly positive, with waiting times for these meat puffs going up to a few hours long:

Fuzhou Oyster Cake @ Teochew Meat Puff 潮州香饼, Bukit Panjang MRT [Hillion Mall] Food Fair. I spent two hours in the queue to get my hands on this piping hot oyster cake a.k.a. UFO [that’s how I termed it when I was a kid & even till this day], freshly made and deep-fried on the spot. Check out the overflowing abundance fillings [e.g. minced pork, chopped parsley & 2 fresh oysters] in the puff! 😲 #burpple #burpplesg #stfoodtrending #sgfood #sgeats #foodsg #wheretoeatsg #whattoeatsg #teochewmeatpuff
