Hoy hoy! Great news everyone! Ultimate Hawker Fest 2014 is coming up soon (this weekend!!) and we’re gonna run down some Halal options for you to head down and check out!
This is the 3rd year the event is running and this year promises to be even bigger and better. We’re talking about some of the best hawker fare out there and great to see that there are some Halal options featured which look set to be big hits!!
And best of all – everyone can do their part for charity!
All profits will go to 32,000 beneficiaries under Touch Community Service!!
So what exactly can we expect in terms of Halal fare at the festival?
|Prata with Poached Egg and Indian Hollandaise Sauce ($10.00)|
The Ultimate Hawker Fest is not just about showcasing the bestest and most power hawker food in our beloved Singapore but also a chance for the masters to showcase their skill and creativity by incorporating new and unique ingredients and cooking methods to create fantastic spin-offs of our favourite dishes.
The masters at The Prata Place – one of the most popular prata joints in Singapore – have truly outdone themselves with this dish which will remind you of Eggs Benedict or Eggs Royale when you take a look at it.
So you have a Prata Kosong as your base (and yes, it’s still good ol’ crispy prata!) and on top of that you have a slice of turkey ham for an extra bite and some savoury flavour. Next, you have a poached egg which is super power when you break into it and the yolk runs all over the shop. *drool*
If that’s not enough, they top it off with an Indian Hollandaise Sauce which incorporates curry and spices and gives you a unique flavour kick like no other!
And just how power is the poached egg???
ZOMG DAMN POWER RIGHT!!!!
You know we have a thing for poached eggs and this one does not disappoint at all!!
And the finished product when you’re about to dig in?
Looks like a big yummy mess! I am sure some of you are going ZOINKS just about now.
We had our doubts when we first heard the idea but we hail to this excellent food invention!
Don’t be put off by the idea – just try and it and you’ll know just how power it is!!
The Prata Place has been at the festival for 3 years straight and has always been a big hit.
First it was The Ultimate Murtabak and then it was The Murta-burger (which we will review separatelt very very soon!) and this year they have come up with yet another sure hit!
Look out for another Halal choice too!
Asam Tree Cafe will be there at the festival with their offering – ‘Longtong!!
Well, trust us – the Prata with Poached Egg and Indian Hollandaise Sauce is more than enough reason to go! We still can’t get over how surprisingly power this dish was! LOL
A unique twist on classic dishes and so delicious – that’s what Ultimate Hawker Fest is all about!!
