Atiqah •  Nov 20, 2017


Not travelling this December and wondering what's there to do in sunny Singapore? From 8-10 December, head on down to Jalan Jalan! Makan Makan! at the Suntec Convention Centre for a fun-filled day of shopping, meeting your favourite local celebrities and savouring delicious eats ?

1. Lawa Bintang
With the shell-out craze having died down, comes the newest contender to the unique hipster seafood scene. Freshly sourced daily from Jurong Fishery Port, Lawa Bintang pairs humongous Indonesian lobsters that's been grilled to perfection with the classic nasi lemak dish; which gives it a major flavour upgrade!

The platter even comes with a special sambal dip for that spicy kick!
2. Broti
After munching on so many food items, you'll need a nice cold drink to wash it all down. For East siders especially, this next vendor needs no further introduction! Quench your thirst with a massive cup of Broti's classic handcrafted Thai Iced Tea or Thai Green Milk Tea ?

3. Street Submarine
Prefer eating on the go than sitting down and consuming a full meal? Street Submarine has taken the ordinary hot dog bun and completely transformed it by incorporating unique, local flavours we all know and love.

4. Hellocs.Co
One of the newest kids on the burger block, Hellocs is a brand-new venture by two locals who just love all things food. They'll be making their very first appearance at this event, so keep an eye out for The Black Mamba; juicy double grilled beef patties wedged between two charcoal buns.
