I didn’t do any Sugar Hits this year (previous ones back in 2006 are here, here and here) nor did I attend any Hats Off dinners… what I did do during this year’s Good Food Month, was grab a quick bite on the last day of the Night Noodle Markets.
It was packed!

Squidlicious were offering mixed seafood plates for $16 which included 2 sticky and sweet prawn skewers, 2 crisp tempura prawns, some not-too-bad salt and pepper squid and crumbled scallops on a bed of undressed gourmet green salad leaves.

The nasi lemak ($10) from Sam Satay had all the key elements, coconut rice, egg, anchovies, sambal, cucumber, peanuts and chicken curry… it was tasty but lacked oomph.

Sam Satay were also offering roti canai with dahl (lentil curry). The roti was a little soggy, overwhelmingly buttery and the dahl lacked flavour and spice.

No time for dessert, because we were running late to a 25th surprise birthday party!
