South East Asian street food added to the menu at Five Valleys

The best of South East Asian street food will be served up by the latest addition to Five Valleys Market in Stroud.

Food trader Bao Ma is set to open today (March 19) and will bring a fusion of flavours inspired by the famous Hawker Centres of Singapore where the owner Ting Ting Mokume grew up.

Ms Mokume and her team are launching a menu that is fresh using high quality ingredients, with a distinctive confident use of spices.

Inspired by Singapore's melting pot of eclectic and diverse culinary culture, the new Bao Ma stall will showcase some of those tantalising, moreish and punchy flavours of the region.

Tasty treats such as satay chicken, 48-hour braised, locally sourced free range pork belly served in fluffy steamed buns and Home-made sauces will be served up in a stunning, traditional Singaporean colonial style setting. The menu features both meat and vegan options - some with a spicy kick.

The business is putting the finishing touches to its new unit this week ready to welcome customers this Friday. Bao Ma can be found opposite the seating area at Five Valleys and next to La Cantina, joining a great line up of artisan and food to go traders.

Ting Ting Mokume, who also runs the award-winning Cirencester café Temple Mama, said: "I am really excited to be opening my new venture here at the Five Valleys Market and I'm looking forward to introducing our menu to our customers.

The depth and diversity of Singapore's food scene is phenomenal where fusion of flavours knows no bounds and that is what we are creating here at Bao Ma - taste explosion and a snippet of global cuisine in a bao"

Centre manager Dionne Moore, said: "We are really proud of how the market is growing here at Five Valleys and we're so pleased to be welcoming Bao Ma, another great trader, to the line-up."
