One of the first stalls you come across has got to be the succulent images of Beef Bro's beef cubes. With claims of Singapore's first Mentaiko Beef Cube to Wagyu Beef Cubes and even a $10 Beef Cube + Thai Milk Tea lunch set, you'll be torn with who really has the best deals at The Tech Show 2018.
What better way to cool down the beef sweats with dessert, and what better dessert is there than some of Four Seasons Mao Shan Wang ice cream that's made with 100% MSW durians. Walking around with a tub of frozen durian might just be your secret weapon to get the best deals at The Tech Show 2018.
If MSW durians won't do the trick, maybe some of these "Gangster" chicken popcorn or fried chicken snacks will give you more strength and courage for the haggling that lies ahead of you. Remember to ask for more Gangster sauce too.
P.S. That grilled angus beef cheeseburger looks like pure sin though.

What can I do when I start to get mad hungry? //
Drop some Durian Bombs and a bucket of Blueberry...
I wanted to bust another verse here, but I didn't really want to rhyme anything with Sausage Party.
Nevertheless, if you want to get your meat on at The Tech Show 2018, Noi Noi Sausage has a nice spread of sausages for your snacking pleasure, including super spicy mala ones. Do note that they have bacon and pork options though, so definitely not halal.
If you think you need a healthy, natural booster after that long day in the halls. You might want to drop by Thirteen Honey for some liquid gold. They're a Singapore brand with a range of...well, 13 honey products that include uniquely interesting ones like Bee Venom, which is a honey made with apitoxin extracted from bee stings. Very interesting indeed.
When bargain hunting at The Tech Show 2018 has gotten you down with the same repeated deals and you're looking for something fresh, then perhaps the thought of an Udon Asam Laksa or Nonya Green Curry Ramen might perk you up. Apa Kitchen made us go, "What?", indeed.
I've eaten many fried foods in my day, but this one stopped me in my tracks. If there's one sinfully decadent thing that would make you drop by The Tech Show 2018, it's probably a packet of Fried Oreos. Naturally, the next question that went through my head was, "Should I still dunk them in milk or not?"
Why go down to Orchard Central and queue at Don Don Donki when you can go to The Tech Show 2018 at Suntec to grab yourself some juicy, super-sized baked sweet potatoes. I mean, look at them. Even the box has XL on them, so you know them large. If there's anything that will give you the raw energy to for bargain hunting...it's this. Also, 3 for S$10 looks like a bargain in itself.
We have now reached peak meats at The Tech Show 2018. Put your brochures into your bags, because this demands both hands to be free. Not just any chicken kebab or even a chicken kebab with cheese sprinkled on it like some lazy afterthought, I could see the cheese melting and dripping on the meat itself while it's being cooked. I was so distracted that I didn't even notice part of my finger obstructing the lens. If this was Instagram, I'd have busted out the drool emoji and #foodporn already.
Now if we're talking about sweet deals--we are at The Tech Show 2018 after all--then Paradise Gastronomy offers some classic Taiwanese fare for a most price. Almost all their dishes are in the $5 range. That's definitely going to keep your stomach going and wallet heavy for that OLED TV you were really here for.
If you make a bee line right to the back of Hall 406, you'll come across Madam Chow, where you can chow down on what looks to be more fusion ramen dishes such as Tom Yum Seafood Ramen and Pomodoro Gyoza Ramen. And if you like them, you can even tabao boxes of frozen Madam Chow back home, special The Tech Show 2018 promo of $18 for three boxes. See, now you can focus on setting up that brand new gaming laptop you just bought without having to worry about pesky things like what to eat for dinner.
So far I've only been focusing on food, but not everyone has the time to eat and shop. It can get messy, I understand. But how about a shot of caffeine? Guerilla Coffee offers some powerful hipster espresso concoctions to give you that extra boost in booth-hopping power such as the Chilli Mocha: bitter, sweet, spicy.
If you're not feeling the hipster mood when you need to turn your aunty/uncle haggle game on, then maybe you just need a quick sugar cane refresher. That's as Singaporean as you can get. "Siao di, gimme your best price on this ORED TV!"
If you're at The Tech Show 2018 to primarily shop for gaming gear, I suggest you get into character yourself. I'm almost 100% certain that you'll gain more gamer cred with a rainbow colored drink in hand as you hunt for the best Razer Chroma or ASUS ROG Aura lighting peripherals, than without.
Whenever I'm at these tech shows, I always see people huddled or seated in corners going through their brochures and comparing prices and freebies from the various booths. Of course, the easiest way to do this is to read HardwareZone.com, thank you very much. But I've always thought that if you had to squat down on the floor in an expo hall, you might as well do it with a drink.
Luckily, here's as close to a kopitiam as you can get inside a hall. While all the other stalls covered in this gallery specializes in one type of drink, you can get everything here from kopi to grass jelly, from sour plum to chendol.
