For those of you who are hesitant to down raw seafood, warm yourselves up with a plate of boiled cockles. Through the boiling process, the cockles soften up and become easier to chew.

Everything comes with a side of 3 delicious dipping sauces: Spicy seafood sauce, Sweet plum sauce, and a mixed sauce for those who want a little bit of both.

Our favourite sauce was the spicy seafood sauce, which is made from a combination of blended chilli, lime juice, fish sauce, and seasoning. But if heat is not your thing, go for the plum sauce instead.

Next up, we gave their raw cockles a go. The texture is chewier and definitely has a “fishier” taste, but it wasn’t off-putting. 

Once you’re done downing it all, the stall offers each table a bucket of water to clean up after your meal.
