This psychedelic looking drink is Butterfly Pea Tea, also known as Anchan tea. It's often considered a popular alternative to Thai Milk Tea. The initial colour is actually deep blue, and transforms into a rich violet as you add in lemon juice - wow!

5. Pokerrito Poke Bowl (Stall 48)

For the uninitiated, poke is a raw fish salad that's wildly popular in Hawaii, and it has been all the rage here in Singapore recently.  The word "poke"  (pronounced "pok-kay") means chunk in Hawaiian. 

In Singapore, it's usually made from raw cubes of tuna or salmon marinated with soy sauce and sesame oil and mixed with onion, though the local entrepreneurs have infused some Asian flavours in their menu. 

6. Element Drink (Stall 48)

This is from the same stall as the poke bowl (Pokerrito), and don't the pastel colours remind you of Paddle Pop? Give this brilliant thirst quencher a swirl and it's sure to please your eyes. 

7. Chiobu Milkshake (Stall 32)

Last but not least, the Chiobu Milkshake! The Hokkien phrase "chiobu" means pretty girl. Pretty apt name for this drink, don't you think?
