A friend caught up with me sometime earlier this week and suggested visiting a Farmer's Market here in sunny Singapore. Ok so it was more "farmer's" market than farmer's market, but there were some really interesting rewards... Held at Dempsey, the Farmers' Market
was a good way to spend a Saturday morning. After a really hot morning, original plans to visit the zoo were scrapped and the really hot day continued with a picnic lunch at Sungei Buloh Nature Reserve. Pretty awesome Saturday.
|Bacon Buttie. I loved the sesame bun. Even though it looked pretty simple, and you wonder if it's worth the $9.50, it tasted wonderful, with a tangy sweet sauce spread on the bun. Bacon was charcoal grilled and awesome flavour went great with the fragrant sesame seeds|
|A Paella lauded as an original Spanish paella, not made to suit local tastebuds. I saw it being made and it looked beautiful. It tasted very good too, the rice had a good chew to it. The saffron and paprika gave it a beautiful scent. It was $10 for a large serving. Seeing it being made was half the fun.|
|Find of the day, Jamon Iberico, I've never had any Jamon before, so it was really good to find it. The taste... incredible... all that piggy goodness... The fig was a twist of brilliance, we bought it from the greengrocer stall. |
|Lovely flavour, but the Fig was abit of a let-down. The ham wasdry and beautifully scented. Ahhh....|
|The final slice, fat glittering in the sun.|
|As things turned into a spanish conquest, yummy sangria.|
|Vegan cold treat. Bottom right hand corner, a beautiful pumpkin coconut flavour... hmm I was too full to have some, but I wonder where i can get some now....|
|Maybe google Brownice? |
It's made from brown rice (I wasn't listening closely enough coz i was looking at something else...)
|The late lunch we had later, picnic at Sungei Buloh! friend's had pickles in it 'because it is MY sandwich'|
|Cheese, tomato, rocket, smoked turkey breast,and mustard on Sourdough bread|
|Some migratory birds on the mud flats. |
Been many years since I went to Sungei Buloh, and it's nice to see the birds are still there.
