I happened to talk about this place with few of my students & I wasn’t surprised they’ve heard of the place. In fact, they’ve been there couple of times. Seeing my keen interest, they proposed taking me there for a “tour”. So off we went exploring, after our class. We'd such a good time shopping!
The shop in my top of the list is Fassler Gourmet, specializing in smoked & marinated seafood products. The shop was featured in the TV programme & I was fascinated by it. Outside the shop displayed a rack of winter clothes, where customers can borrow to wear in order to enter the freezing chambers.
As much as we’d like to browse longer, we got out immediately after getting what we wanted. It was freezing inside. Even with the winter jackets, we couldn’t last very long inside.
My students also brought me to this fish ball stall where there were already a handful customers busy picking their buys. Besides fish balls, the stall also sells fish cakes, ngoh hiang (meat roll), wanton & chicken wings. The plumpy fish balls were going at 9 for just a dollar! What a steal!
I also got myself some satay @ 30 cents a stick, which comes with a generous pack of gravy. We also went to a shop selling frozen Prawn Rolls. All you need to do is deep-fry them & they’re really delicious. On one lazy afternoon, I cooked these rolls to pair with instant noodles. It was a yummy quick fix!
