This time a post that is a bit less focused on food, although food still has a central role. When going out, two types of food always will be present: drinks and late night snacks. And the party I went to in Singapore was no exception. To celebrate the New Year I went to a New Years party at Club Zouk where the legendary Pete Tong would spin his tracks. Once inside my brother and I went to the bar to order some ‘golden goodness’.
With some (very expensive) and ice cold Tiger Beers in our hands we walked around Club Zouk to see what it was all about.
And after the party slowly got underway we ordered another drink, this time choosing a Rum & Coke which was, remarkably, as expensive as a beer!
This red colored room was the smoking area where my brother went for a cigarette. But after he finished his cigarette and after our drinks were finished, the room itself gave a not so subliminal message:
So party we did.
And after a whole lot of dancing and drinking, my stomach beckoned me to get some food. Something I thought would be not so easy to do. Since Club Zouk is built in three old warehouses next to the Singapore river with only hotels surrounding the buildings, the area seemed as an area were food was not right around the corner. Luckily, I was wrong. I must’ve known better because in Singapore, food is always around the corner! So when I exited Club Zouk I saw a food stall that wasn’t there when I came in. Or at least, I hadn’t seen it. The good man behind the stall was selling sausages with all kinds of sauce and it was exactly what I needed.
Some fried sausages with some hot sauce over it. Perfect for an after-party snack. After having become used to the expensive drinks inside (and probably a bit because of the alcohol in the drinks) I thought that the price of around 2 euros for these sausages was extremely low. So after I finished my first sausage, I walked back to the food stall and ordered another. I can tell you though, that they tasted great.
And for those of you who will be going to Club Zouk and occasionally have the munchies while drinking inside, here’s a tip: you will/can get a stamp from the porter at the entrance with which you can exit and enter Club Zouk all night. So when you are inside drinking and suddenly craving a sausage, just go outside and enjoy!
