Sengkang pasar malam with fried durian & rendang otah open throughout CNY holiday

I know what you’re saying, “Oh no, Aaron! Not another pasar malam?!” But wait, I’ve scouted a bunch of unique eats that you’ll be able to get at Sengkang pasar malam, which will be running till 29 Jan 2023.

Located just next to Sengkang MRT, the night bazaar boasts a total of 38 food stalls, lined up nicely side-by-side in 2 rows. The first thing that got my attention was a bright yellow stall called Cheese Love.

This Halal spot had a variety of cheese bites including Cheese Stick, Cheese Nuggets and Cheese Ham (S$8 for any 5 pieces). But I ignored all of that and went for the Crispy Fried Durian (S$8 for 4) instead.

The batter was crumbly and crispy. The durian filling was slightly chewy like mochi, and had actual durian pulp. Although the quality wasn’t the best, it was still satisfying as a pick-me-up snack.

Another stall which piqued my curiosity was Ikan (also known as ‘fish’ in Malay). Those with a penchant for otah should definitely check this out.

I tried the Rendang (S$4.50 for 5) and it was delicious! Just imagine an infusion of all the flavourful notes of rendang being packed into a piece of otah. Ikan also has other varieties like Scallop, Crab, Sambal Chilli and Squid.

I spotted Yum Cha.Sg with a long snaking queue. I decided to join in the craze and everyone in front of me ordered the same thing, the Honeycomb Ice Cream (S$8). And so did I.

It had crispy cornflakes and strawberry pearls at the bottom. It was then topped with a generous serving of vanilla soft serve, a drizzle of honey, and a substantial piece of honeycomb. One word to describe it: shiok!

If you’re yearning to savour the King of Fruits, I spotted a durian stall selling Mao Shan Wang (S$12 per kg), Red Prawn (S$10 each) and Sultan (S$10 each). So go for that!
