The highly anticipated event for food hunters like you and me, finally wrapped up their one-day event on the 26th November 2016. This year, SIM-UOL SRC Food Hunt came back bigger, yummier and better with 33 teams joining which were reportedly more participants as compared to last year. The event registration was filled up really fast as well.
For this year Food Hunt, there were a total of 16 stations and participants had to locate the delicacies with the given clues and gain points by completing different games at the various stations. Some of these stations include:
Station: Guess the Song @ Anson Chee Cheong Fan
At this station, participants were given a random set of 5 songs with 3 lines to guess in a time limit of 3 minutes. Upon finishing this station, they would get to enjoy a plate of traditional Chee Cheong Fan that has a history of 70 years.
Station: Blow Wind Blow @ The Burning Oaks
This game required the team to move the cups off the table using a balloon without making direct contact within the shortest time possible. The teams will be served a bowl of delicious yakitori that no one would be able to resist as they completed the game.
Station: Charades @ 313 Somerset Yoogane
Yoogane, a popular Korean restaurant which serves one of the best Chicken Galbi in town, was one of the Food Hunt’s sponsors this year. The game of charades was played here where 1 player guessed the answer while others tried to describe the answer without mentioning the taboo words.
Station: Jumping Ball @ Indoor on Table (Hock Prawn Mee)
At this station, participants had to blow 4 pingpong balls from one end to another end. The team’s scores were determined based on timing taken to have the 4 balls at the last row. The lesser the time it took to pass the 4 balls, the higher the points they got to score. As they completed the game, they would be served the infamous Hock Prawn Mee which is located at the neighbourhood of Toa Payoh, before they proceeded to their next station again.
Station: Pass the Polo @ Ah Seng Duck Rice
Located in Serangoon Garden Market and Food Centre, Ah Seng Braised Duck Rice specialises in Teochew-style braised duck. Participants at this station were required to pass as many rubber bands down the line in two minutes with the toothpick in every player's mouth. The team that was able to pass more than 24 toothpicks within two minutes would be rewarded 100 points.
Winner of Food Hunt’16: Team Butt Crack
Which was the most memorable station?
The most memorable station was the Pick Em’ Up at The Twenty Cavan where we have to pick up different items from a bucket of soapy water within a given time frame. The Suck IT UP at Nana Homemade Curry was damn hard but the food was amazing.
What’s different for Food Hunt 2016 as compared to 2015?
There were more non-halal food as compared to last year and the Muslims only get to eat few dishes. Maybe next year they can incorporate more halal food into the event.
