Bedok Market Place 勿洛坊

Located at 348 Bedok Road (near Simpang Bedok), this renovated food centre is accessible only by stairs. The stalls there have stylish decoration, plus it feels a little hip. Although, we were still in a non-airconditioned food court setting. Certain areas have powerful fan units, so no need to worry about the heat.


Was there with a specific objective in mind, which was to get some meat. Ok, perhaps that didn't came out right. Had a morning event where we loaded quite a bit on desserts, so to balance things up, the foodie gang decided to grab some late lunch which must contain meat items for that substantial feel.

For our mains, found Ballistic and the Chop Chop Selections. Then, for desserts, the girls got something from SPies & All Things Nice.

so pretty
gonna get their specials, but it ain't on a flatbread

Got some meatballs to try from Ballistic. A few flavours in fact. Chose their shop specialty, chicken and the chili crab meatballs. Added two sides; the deep fried abalone mushroom and the salted egg yolk fries.

Signature Ballistic Meatballs - sesame battered cheesy beef meatballs @$5.90 (back - chicken meatballs @$4)
Chili Crab Meatballs with mantous @$10.50
Crispy Wild Mushrooms @$3
Salted Egg Yolk Fries @$7.90

For the meatballs, unfortunately the Signature cheesy beef meatballs didn't work for us. It was a tad dry. Enjoyed the chicken meatballs more but the favourite was the chili crab meatballs. We liked 'em saucy! The salted egg yolk sauce on the fries was good too but the crispy mushroom was quite addictive for nibbles. A bottle of beer at the drinks stall costs only $5 for an Asahi.

Next, we tried the Chop Chop Selections. Yes, like its namesake, choose your chop (choice of meat), and they will cook it for ya. From simple grilling to deep fried. We got ourselves a beef steak, pork ribs and fish and chips. From the land to the sea. Didn't do poultry though. Should have gotten some wings, aiyah!

Best accessorized stall
meet the meats
Needn't wait long for our food. Quite chop chop, this stall.

Baby Back BBQ Ribs @$15.90
London Fish & Chips @$9.90
Premium Ribeye Steak @$18.50
Most value for money item, would be the London Fish & Chips with that thick slab of dory. Thinly battered, and moist meat. Best tasting would be the BBQ Back Ribs with its fork tender meat. However, thought it was more Asian flavoured than western. The steak was done rare and actually, quite enjoyable to chew on.

The girls, came back with pies. Cute little mini pies from Spies and All Things Nice.

say hi to Brandon and try their freshly baked savoury and sweet pies

Lots of Asian influenced flavours such as buah keluak, babi pongteh, chicken laksa etc. Not forgetting, their sweet pies with pulut hitam, or the almond flavour tasted exactly like how those desserts should be. So convenient to 'da bao' the flavours. A slightly bigger version would be good too. Yummy.

And, Brandon generously introduced to us his new creation for SG50; the Chili Crab Kueh Pie Tee. The pie tee shell was amazingly crisp, and those chili crab was just so flavourful with the necessary tinge of spice. Gone in one mouthful. *thumbs up*

Was fun hanging out with the foodie gang at Bedok Market Place, and trying out the stalls here. To find out what the shops have been up to lately, you might want to check on their individual FB page.
