Latest Articles

Remember the times when we ate six takoyaki out of a styrofoam box, sitting or maybe even standing at a random corner with random Chinese EDM blasting through speakers from a random stall?

The cheap prices of late-night snacks. The bustling crowd. The heat radiating from cooking oil.

Ah, how we miss those.

What Can You Expect?

Unfortunately for some, due to inflation, the prices of some snacks at pasar malams have increased.

Yes, that includes the takoyaki.

Instead of six pieces for $2.50, some stores are selling them at six pieces for $3.50. Some charge the same cost for only five pieces.

Other stores like the ShiLin Taiwan Snacks have still kept their prices around $5-$6 depending on what you order.

The usual Kebab stall and 1 litre Thai Milk Tea stall have also relatively kept their prices around $6.50-$8.50 and $2-$4 respectively.

What is a Pasar Malam?

For those that are new to this because of the pandemic, you must be a young fellow who’s confused at the hype for pasar malams.

Pasar malams are a form of night market commonly found in Southeast Asia.

Street snacks like Taiwan sausages, tea eggs, takoyaki, kebab, fried chicken, and thai milk tea are commonly found in these bazaars.

But occasionally, interesting stores would pop up and sell food like bubble teas, baby dutch pancakes, and even fried ice cream.

The best part about these night markets are that most of the snacks are priced ridiculously cheap. It’s rare to find anything that costs over $10.

Most of these bazaars also sell electronic goods at the side. You’ll be able to find phone cases, earpieces, power banks, and more!

Another plus point is that some of these pasar malams may also have miniature game carnivals beside them, perfect for children.

It’s one of those pop-up events that almost every Singaporean has experienced so if you haven’t been to one, be sure to check them out.
