Compared to the time we went to the Richmond Night Market and to previous years there was definitely less people. However, we went to the Bridgeport one the second week it was open, so there would've been more people there for sure.
Stop #1: Dan Dan's Smokehouse
This stand specialized in quite a diverse variety of grilled foods. I heard about the turkey drumstick ($5 for "large") last year but never got a chance to try it. Compared to chicken drumstick it was definitely drier and had more tendons, but it was way meatier as well. It was packed with flavour that had a slight tang of bbq sauce, but not enough, in my opinion. They actually sell an "extra-large" option for $8. Doro got the beef enoki (3 for $3), which was not bad. She didn't like the sauce, and for some reason I thought it had a hint of corn to it.

Stop #3: Hurricane Potato Stand
Obligatory pic of the line-up. Not bad compared to the one we saw last time at the Richmond Night Market.
Stop #3: Korean Food
Doro wanted her rice cake again. The cup of toppoki rice cake ($2) was alright. It's pretty hard to mess this up. Actually, nevermind, the first cup had a hair in it. Compared to the stand at RNM, this one had some nappa cabbage in it.
Stop #4: Tornado Cake
We noticed that this stand was selling spiralled food that was NOT a potato, and I was quite intrigued. These tornado cakes ($3) are roasted a few inches above charcoal, giving them a hint of flavour. They're more like cinnamon buns than cakes and quite soft inside with a slightly crisp exterior. Since they gave the option of choosing up to two toppings, being the greedy Asian girl I am, went for both cinnamon and walnut. Quite the delicious combo, I'd say.
Stop #5: Vietnamese Delicious
Dorothy saw these deep fried crab claws ($5 for 5 pieces) and had to get them, even though I tried to remind her that they were not so good last year. I think they were about the same as last year's (though it's now $5 for 5 instead of 7 pieces), and they weren't that great.
Stop #6: What8ver Cafe
