We were there around 6.30pm and sadly it was raining. We did not have to pay for the $8 entrance fees because we told the ticket sellers at the entrance "Patricia's Guests" and there we go... Free Entrance! More money to spend on eating!
One thing to note is to attend the event with an open and inquisitive mind. We had the expectation that we might need to spend more and most likely the portion might be small. What made us excited was really the prospect of trying something different and that made us satisfied and happy.

Next up, we tried an Indonesian Street Food, Kue Pancong and Kue Pukis. A set consisting of a mixture of both costs $4.

Chicken 65 is priced at $3.50. The spices of the chicken is totally aromatic. The chicken has some minty chutney taste which gives the chicken a unique yet yummy taste. I really like the sauce/paste that came with it. It's hard to finger what made it so different from the usual chicken. So, just try it for yourself!

Seafood Tostado was our next choice. It was sold at $10 per piece. Really, my qualm is that the serving is way too small. One chip topped with fresh seafood for $10 is really overpriced.

Last but not least, to spend our last $4.50, we were brave enough to try something really out of our comfort zone. We tried the Khun Pas which was the one that is coated with coconut, sugar and a bit of salt on the right of the picture. It comes in 3 different flavors but really we couldn't taste the difference. The two dumpling like things are called Khao Kriab Pak Moh. They are savoury and comes wrapped with mixed vegetable and mince pork.
I would say I prefer the dumplings like Khao Kriab Pak Moh better! Even though it's cold, the skin was not sticky and hard. Instead, it was still soft and the proportion of skin to fillings made it even more tasty and sumptuous. We love the chili that was supposed to be a dip for the dumplings.
All in all, we spend $20 per person in trying all 6 dishes from 6 different parts of the world. Well, we ordered dish by dish and ate dish by dish since we were not in the rush. We felt in this way we were able to savour the complete taste of every dish. We found our expenses reasonable for the quality of food. Generally, the food we tasted was yummy. But, don't expect to be extremely filling. I guess if you hold the mentality to try something new, then it is quite a worthwhile food trip!
