MENU AND PRICING

Some dishes cost 50¢, while some are $1.00 or $1.50. The only dish that costs $2.00 is the chilli crab. The price depends on the type of food and quantity served. Maximum of 4 portions per person. You can use either coins or notes for payment, while notes depend if they have enough change for you. There is also a coin changing stop near the entrance of the fest, opposite the fried rice stall.

These dishes are served in mini bowls, each contains a small portion of the food. Below is a display of various dishes. I suggest ordering more portions for each dish, as the servings given are rather small.

Do visit this event and experience the lively atmosphere that is reminiscence of the past. There will be some old school entertainment such as black and white outdoor movie screenings, life performances by opera singers and martial arts professionals. Come down tomorrow Sunday (31/07/2016) to experience these nostalgic moments and saviour on local food from 11AM to 11PM for its final day! However, do take note that it will be quite crowded, so expect to wait for some time in order to get a table and queue for the food.
