I’m truly overwhelmed by bowls after bowls of Taiwanese popular street food snack placed right before me. There’s the Taiwanese crispy chicken on my left, bubble milk tea with Pearls on my right, and 11 other main and side dishes laid right before me. I can’t help but to think that I’m might actually in this mini Taiwanese street food haven right at Bugis+, the newly renovated mall which was once called Illuma.
In Taipei, you can find endless rows of food stalls selling their local delights such as Oyster Vermicelli or Braised Pork with rice in the popular night market such as Shi Lin. If you’re lucky, you don’t have to wait for hours before you could dig into that bowl of oyster vermicelli.
Good news, people! Right here in Singapore, at Taipei Station, you don’t have to walk, queue or wait. All you need to do is to walk over from Bugis MRT to Bugis+, talk an elevator up to the Level 4, “alight” at Taipei Station, grabbed one of those white chairs and enjoy the spread of Taiwanese delights.
Oyster Rice Vermicelli, $4.90
Batter fried broccoli.
That’s how you could add some crunch into vegetables.
Sweet Potato Fries seasoned with Sour Plum, $3.00
I love this snack! It’s definitely a healthier alternative to potato fries for it’s beta-carotene (found in carrots) and Vitamin C!
Original Crispy Chicken, $4.20
Calamari seasoned with Wasabi, $3.50
Cheese Crispy Chicken, $4.50
Braised Pork with Rice, $4.90
This is one of my favourites! The minced pork gravy with white rice is a heavenly match! Eat it while it’s piping hot!
Cheese-flavoured Calamari, $3.50
Cold noodle with Peanut Sauce, $4.50
Tasted cold noodles before? It’s pretty unique dish. It is somewhat sweet and savoury at the same time. Cold noodles are best for Summer! This unique dish inspired me to prepare my very own bowl of cold noodles. Stay tuned!
