What is the Boutique Fairs Singapore all about?

To be honest it was nothing like I expected and as I had to walk through 3 big rooms it became apparent this was not an event I would normally sign up for, all way too girly, lots of flowery patterns vegan foods, pottery stalls and clothing lines from biodegradable cow flatulence! I messaged the wife and said I might be home sooner than I thought, her response “OK lah go get in touch with your feminine side“! Dang, so I start mincing my way to the last hall named aptly named “Breathe“!

So I head right to Mia Tavola for Pizza and Tiramisu!

I meet my contact, the stand is busy and its only 7.15pm, bear in mind the doors open to the VIP’s at 7pm and I was on bus no.2. Quick intro and right into where’s the pizza? “It’s sold out!” Huh? Well the stall holders were here from 5pm and cleared the place out. No sample of Tiramisu either, so right off the bat things are not looking good for Mia Tavola! My contact offers a consolation bag of brownies and I decline without showing distain for having travelled all the way to see them only to have nothing to show for it!

I don’t blame the staff for this its just a situation circumstance out of their control but obviously I can’t give them a review on something I have not even tried.

I made my excuses and left to see a stall we had featured on our blog before to at least save the journey before heading home!

Tais Berenstein is the Director of Tais’ Kitchen Pte. Ltd. who creates some incredible hot sauces right here in Singapore and you might recall that we did a review of Tais’ hot sauces when we did the Hairy Crab Review back in 2022 but we had not met in person so this was a great opportunity.

Tais met me with a big hub truly showing off her Brazilian hospitality! We jumped right into the sauces and I got to try the new Mexican Hot Sauce (you know how much we love our Mexican food). The Mexican Hot sauce packs a little more heat than the rest of the range but was delish never the less.
