As if my last visit at the Richmond Night Market was not enough (even though we had visited eight food stands in one evening), I went back a few more times. This time, we went diversified and tried some different stands. Although it feels like summer is almost ending, the Richmond Night Market runs on until October 8, 2012.
QQ Egg Puff
QQ Egg Puff offers bubble waffles in a variety of flavours. Strange that they didn't have little cartoons for the more expensive $4.50 ones. We were intrigued by the cheese flavoured bubble waffle, but they had already sold out of this flavour.
The chocolate bubble waffle ($4) had a very subtle hint of chocolate. These were pretty standard; they turned out well, but they weren't as amazing as the ones from Sweet Bubble. The interior was not as soft and chewy and the exterior wasn't as crispy.
Cherry Icy Bar
As much as I love Cherry Icy Bar, the thought that I could get this outside of the night market at their permanent location in Parker Place's food court makes me opt for Mango Yummy instead. In comparison, it seems this one has more mango chunks but less coconut milk. It's also a tad more expensive.
The Squid Co.
The small cup of signature style squid ($6) was alright. After everyone had a few pieces, it was still over three-quarters full. I finished another quarter by myself before reluctantly throwing it away. It was just way too much squid to be enjoyable.
Original Oktoberfest Style
Fortunately for us, some hungry friends came along, and I was able to sample a few pieces. There was so much meat! The meat was tender fo the most part, except for some tendon-y bits. The skin, although slightly crunchy, was a bit thick, but that was expected. There's actually a big bone piece in there as well.
