Bedok Marketplace

Needing food variety for dinner tonight it was decided that family K would go back to a favourite of ours that we have not frequented for a while. We came here a few times at the recommendation of our BFF’s from The Cheese Shop and dined like royalty. It’s also where we have got our ChillaxBBQ sourdough from before for our cheese fondue and the like – Mr Kneadey. So back we come. I am calling this #ModSinHawker because it is not like the ‘traditional’. It is not the traditional/heritage hand-me-down recipes of old. These guys are pushing the boundaries, whilst still maintaining elements of that hawker ‘feel’ – as I hope you will see from this little blog about dinner tonight.

The Bedok Marketplace – Bringing traditional hawker dining to a brand new experience

Here is the crew at Burning Oaks, serving up Wagyu, foie gras, smoked USA BBQ, and the like – see what I mean about pushing some boundaries…

Here is a little variety we ordered today. Amy goes for Pork Cheek in a bowl, which comes very Japanese in the style of plating. We also had a sublime skewer or 5 of their 7-hour Braised Beef Rib. Stunning, melt-in-the-m0uth beefiness with a cracking char crunch too. And any hawker that has Foie Gras on the menu board just has to be honoured with an order in my reckoning. So we ordered two haha. And how incredible was this with the ginger pickles you may ask? Absolutely amazing would be my response!!!

We also ‘dined’ here today – the boys from Social Outcast were cooking up a storm and that menu was looking super-attractive to explore.

See what I mean? All young lads on the tools and I am loving that charcoal BBQ oven in the background. Now we’re really talking. I want one, I want one!!!

Burning Oaks again now with the BBQ Pork Ribs accompanied by a rather overly-herby Mac ‘n’ Cheese with stunning chargrilled broccoli. Super-tender pork ribs with a rather interesting rub in there – a little spice hits your palate, but not punch it…

And a close up of the 2nd batch of the 7-hour beef rib that I ordered. Melt-in-the-mouth this is. Wow!!!

Jude Jude decided to go Western with a Gorgonzola Pizza ‘w’ Parma Ham. Boom. I had a wee slice of this and it was so very very good. This was from a 3rd ‘stall’ we frequented this evening – The Naughty Chef. Cracking pizza chaps.

Back to Social Outcast for a few now – 1st up this beauty. I got two of these. Monsterous in scale for the portion with two whole halves of unctuous Roasted Beef Bone Marrow. On top was a sour salsa to off-set the fatty marrow but also some fried nuggets, we think, of pork fat. I mean this is a heart attack on a plate but what a bloody good way to go. Stellar!!!

Nothing Impossible about this burger from outcast that they actually name Possible Meats Burger. Middle finger up to you vegans out there – whoop whoop whoop!!! It’s why meat was invented… to be BBQ’d and eaten hahaha!!! OK I am partial to the occasional mushroom… This is a beef patty served with smoked lamb cubes, WTF… and Tempura chips. Abso-lutely-bloody-brilliant!!!

I ordered this too from Outcasts. Sorry guys this did not hit the spot. I think you should ask if punters want the Japanese topping. It’s an acquired taste this one, being quite bitter in fact for me and the whole gang. I’d rather have had some smoked paprika on there, or to be honest just some salt. Now that would be beer food!!! Fried Chicken Skin.

Yes, we did indeed massively over-order. This is after we had had a number of other dishes and yours truly had engulfed a Guninness or two. I think Wifey & Strawberry Blonde are both just about to say: “Food coma…” and pass out…

Bedok Marketplace was a cracking dinner this day. Social Outcast, Burning Oaks, and The Naughty Chef be proud guys. The food is exceptional that you are serving up. Also, Bedok Marketplace you should be very proud of the concept you have created. The lack of any available seats at 1830 sum up your success and that of the stalls. It was MOBBED and that is brilliant to see during Covid times. Thanks to all the crew, family K had a brilliant and fun dinner. This is one to visit East Coasters.

ENJOY!!!
