You can eat the meat servings with rice, bread, salads and even on its own – like dendeng! They’ve also got bento sets like Duck Rice and Aglio Olio at their pop-up stalls at their scheduled events. These bento sets even come in kids’ set for shopping parents.Otherwise, you can preorder your ‘se-DUCK-tively sedap’ Duck Portions from them on their social media pages any time!
2. POPiah Original – Pop-ups & Homies
Some of us get popiah cravings and we don’t always know where to go to get them fixed. Well, here’s a suggestion: POPiah Original at East Village! There are many different meat options and popiah crust options for you to choose from such as kofta, original (popiah basah) and golden popiah (fried popiah). They’ve been around since the last 1970s but they’ve recently started growing a social media presence. Don’t be surprised if the next big food hype is popiah basah. *wink*Let’s move on to event venues!
