If there’s one thing Singaporeans can’t get enough of, it’s events where street-style food booths are aplenty. Although Christmas food is commonly associated with a few typical dishes like turkey and log cakes, the spread at Shaw House Urban Plaza courtesy of the Nom Nom Nom pop-up is as myriad as they come.
