This is going to sound auntie, but I’m going to say it anyway:
The highlight of my week was grabbing salmon steaks in a giant fridge at Fassler.
I was so excited about CHEAP! GOURMET! SEAFOOD! CHEAP! that I stayed in the freezer room a little too long oohing and aaahing at the gorgeous slabs of tuna tatakis and seafood terrines. By the time I got out, my hands were numb (but full).
Next door was this place (forgot name so won’t be tempted to buy) selling every kind of sausage on the face of this earth, as well as some impressive looking roasts. A colleague was spotted running gleefully towards the building exclaiming, “Meat heaven! Meat heaven!” Their bratwursts apparently rock.
And if you just walk down a little more, there’s Foodedge selling CHEAP! GOURMET! ICE-CREAM! CHEAP! I’ve tried the mango sorbet, it’s pretty good. And if it’s too much of a hassle to come down to the ulu North, they take online orders and do deliveries too.
Basically, these factories supply their products to hotels and restaurants all over Singapore but if you buy from them directly here, there are plenty of savings to be made. Like factory outlet shopping – only in this case, the foodstuff may even be better because it’s fresh from the source.
With the inflated prices of food, I’ve been finding it harder and harder to find good quality food at reasonable prices these days. With today’s visit, I realise that WAH! there are actually plenty of food suppliers in the Ulu North selling at wholesale prices (finally, something noteworthy about this area). Loveleh.
