Sick of squeezing with the sweaty crowd at Geylang Serai Bazaar?

The Yummy Food Expo is back at the Singapore Expo this weekend. This mega food fest will feature a special Korea and Taiwan pavilion serving up a whole lot of mouthwatering food. Plus, it will be air-conditioned so we reckon it’ll be worth the trip down! 

Some of the notable must-try food includes the juicy Beef Shabu Burger with Cheese Sauce.
