A week ago we told you of a secret Woodlands Ramadan Bazaar. Now we’re letting you in on another secret: there’s one so secretive they don’t even have a Facebook page.
And if you peek from the outside it totally looks like some magical secret society, that only people who are worthy can enter.
It’s at Tampines Block 863
I mean the picture gave it away already, so I might as well just tell you the address now.
- Address: 863 Tampines Street 83, Singapore 520863
- Dates available: 6 May – 4 Jun
- Opening hours: Daily, 2 pm – 7 pm
The opening hours don’t look too great, though they don’t have an official Facebook page so this timing needs additional verification.
It’s totally Harry Potter
And I’m not even joking that it’s magical, cause even the inside looks like some hidden underground dungeon and they sell butterbeer.
This image is 24 weeks old, but it’s what this stall has sold at other locations before:
Pui! This one HDB nia you tell me secret chamber.
Ok, I may be exaggerating a bit. But where’s your imagination?
Let me tell you, this is the charm of the good old Pasar Malam. Like a secret gathering of only the closest families, a little dirty, a little noisy, but it’s all fun and magical. And it’s just right at your doorstep.
But alright, give you a little non-traditional first.
Here are No Pat No Pit’s burritos.
At this point with Stuff’d all around, burritos are hipster no longer, but No Pit No Pat is always photogenic.
Crust & Crumbs
Crust & Crumbs sells a mix of traditional and modern desserts. And in preparation for Raya, these are samples of what they offer for ordering.

And now it’s time to go to the older days. Starting with Nasi Padang.
Nasi Ambeng at only S$5.
Traditional Malay food.
More Malay kueh.
We also can’t forget about Ramly Burgers.
Who knows, maybe when you reach there you won’t see anything until you see run into Block 863’s wall 9 3/4.
It’s not the only one
But if Tampines is too far, don’t worry. Because HDB Block Bazaars are actually all around Singapore, like this Facebook post from The Halal Food Blog on Blk 422 Jurong West St 42.
Just search around for “Bazaar Bawah Block” (Bazaar under the block), and maybe you’ll find a little of the good old Pasar Malams again.
