Well Artbox isn't making a comeback anytime soon but you can look forward to the first ever EATBOX happening this (11-13 Jan 2019) and next weekend at Downtown East.

P.S. Need more halal places to eat? We've got the most updated guide to halal food in Singapore!

1. Broti

Any avid bazaar goer in Singapore would know Broti! This stall is known for the huge size of their thirst quenchers, with the most popular ones being Thai Iced Milk Tea and Thai Iced Green Tea? The best part is, even though you're drinking so much, the tea isn't diluted and the taste isn't too overwhelming!

There's no doubt that this is definitely a perfect treat to beat the heat. If you're not a fan of milk tea, their sodas will be perfect for you.

As Broti is highly popular, you might be caught in a long queue, but trust us, it's all worth it ?

2. Beef Bro

Beef Bro first made their appearance at last year's Geylang Bazaar and it had gained quite a following ever since. We can definitely see why as they are probably the first stall to serve Singapore's first ever halal Mentaiko Blow-Torched Beef ?

In case you're wondering what this is, it's actually a Taiwanese street food specialty - cubes of juicy premium rump steak are blow-torched and then slathered with their mouthwatering mentaiko sauce and topped with seaweed!

#HHWT Tip: Don't forget to dip your beef cubes in their homemade sambal belacan sauce for that burst of flavour ?

3. Inariku

You can't say no to Japanese food, and there's no way you can say no to Inariku! Serving halal homemade Japanese delights, you need to try their inari. For the uninitiated, inari is sushi rice wrapped in deep-fried tofu pockets. Try their different toppings from lobster and tuna to more interesting ones like spicy chicken floss and kani ebikko (crabstick).

If you prefer something heavier, Inariku's ramen will satisfy your cravings. Take your pick from their spicy shoyu or tantan ramen (spicy broth) and we're pretty sure you'll be wanting more ?

4. Rumi, The Poets Cup

You might think that Rumi is just another ordinary drink stall but what's interesting about it is that it combines poetry with drinks. Yes, we're totally not kidding!

As if their drinks menu of Iced Caramel Cream and Iced Hazel Malt aren't appetising enough, check this out. When you purchase a drink from them, it also comes with a scroll with quotes by a random writer. Pretty cool, right?

5. Saiko

You can't deny that takoyaki is a quintessential "pasar malam" (night market) snack and you can your fix of them at Saiko! Saiko's yummy takoyakis are served in sizeable portions and you can even savour a full octopus ?

This definitely reminds us of the takoyakis that you can find in Osaka, so you can be rest assured that the takoyakis that you're eating is of high-quality!

6. Krumbz N Kraves

Krumbz N Kraves is probably the only halal stall in Singapore where you can get halal Taiwanese Shihlin chicken! Boneless chicken thigh deep fried to perfection and topped with their chilli powder, there's no way you'd be able to resist this ?

Another favourite of this stall is also their best-selling Argentina Squid, which is also deep fried to a perfect crisp and seasoned with the same chilli powder as their shihlin chicken. But perhaps what's so striking is that their squid is imported from Argentina and you can really taste its juiciness and freshness.

Don't forget to wash down your meal with their ice lollies too - with interesting flavours like asam boi (sour plum), corn and fruity frost!
