Did you hear? The highly anticipated Twilight Flea & Feast is back again for its second edition! From 2-4 February 2018, make your way down to the Suntec Convention Centre for a day filled with browsing through dozens of flea stalls, attending free movie screenings and of course, sinking your teeth into tasty eats 😋
With over 40 stalls selling comfort street food from all over the world, you probably wouldn’t know where to start! To help you out with your upcoming gastronomic adventure, we’ve listed out our top 5 picks you can’t leave without trying 🤗
Owned by everyone’s favourite Instagram family, the Syarifs, Chulop has permanent homes in East Village Mall and JCube but has since branched out to being a familiar face at most halal food fiestas in Singapore. Take your pick from classic, deep-fried churros lightly sprinkled with cinnamon (paired with premium dips like Thai Milk Tea, Oreo Cheesecake or Kinder Bueno) or churros with unique toppings!

Once you’ve savoured churros with mouth-watering toppings like Smores, Choc & Cheese and Banana Nutella, there’s no going back 😍
A newcomer to the halal food pop up scene, SAIKŌ whips up freshly made Japanese street snacks like your go-to takoyaki. However, think of SAIKŌ as the elevated version of your typical pasar malam takoyaki joint! Using only premium ingredients, you have a choice between octopus or mushrooms for your filling.

Other selections include Classic, Dashi (takoyaki with dashi broth, bonito flakes and scallions) and Miso (takoyaki with miso butter and rice krispies). Top it all off with a perfectly cooked onsen egg for just an additional $2!
You’ll need a nice cold drink to quench your thirst after sampling so many tasty eats! For East siders especially, this next vendor needs no further introduction! These massive cups of milk tea can barely fit the palms of most people’s hands, and at just $4 each, you’ll definitely be getting the most bang for your buck.

If it’s your first time trying Broti, pick from their classic handcrafted Thai Iced Tea, Thai Green Milk Tea or Earl Grey Milk Tea 😍 Up for something a little more adventurous? Sip on Broti’s other unique teas and sodas like Matcha Charcoal, Yang Hitam Manis (blackcurrant) and P. Ramlee’s Punch (passion fruit)!
4. Street Submarine
With an event as popular as Twilight, you can certainly expect huge crowds of people scattered all over the venue. If you can’t find a place to sit to enjoy your meal or prefer eating on the go, you need to take a bite of Street Submarine’s amazing light bites! The pop-up stall has taken the ordinary hot dog bun and completely transformed it by incorporating unique, local flavours we all know and love.

Best-sellers include spicy pulled beef, chicken rendang, chilli rendang and crab and prawn! If you’re still feeling peckish, their little bucket of beef or chicken satay fries will surely fill you up.
If you haven’t heard of Roastitos’ signature perfectly roasted chicken, you’re missing out on a lot! The meat is so tender that it peels right off the bone 😍 Usually served whole or in half, you certainly can’t carry around such a huge chunk of meat during Twilight!

To make it easier for you to munch on the go, Roastitos will be serving yummy burgers made using their famous roasted chicken! The best of both worlds for sure 😉
BONUS: New activities to do with your loved ones!
With this year’s theme being Love And Be Loved, there’ll be tons of romantic installations for those Instagram-worthy shots with your partner 😉 Bring along your family and play unique games with gigantic human-sized Jenga blocks, Tic Tac Toe and Connect Four. Besides that, you can also take part in various crafts workshops where you’ll dabble in watercolour calligraphy, clay and wood making!
Spread the love of Twilight and head on down for a fun filled day with your loved ones this February 😊 Hope to see you there!
