Singapore’s beloved Ramadan bazaars have finally returned after two years of being cancelled or taken online due to the Covid-19 pandemic. It’s safe to say that Singaporeans are excited to welcome back our favourite open market.
To control crowds, there are significantly fewer stalls than the previous years. However, this week, organiser Wisma Geylang Serai announced that the Geylang Serai bazaar will be able to accommodate 10 more food stalls and 20 retail stalls. These will be in operation from April 14 until May 2 (the end of the fasting month, and will bring the total number of participants to 70).
While we wait for these new additions, here are some of the best food options you can find at the Ramadan bazaar at Geylang Serai.
Alley is a pretty popular sight at most bazaars and it is well known for its pop sodas and Dutch Poffertjes—buttery and fluffy mini pancakes that you can’t miss out on. For extra indulgence, you can even pair them with ondeh-ondeh, Nutella pops, or cookies and cream.
When it comes to drinks you have options like green apple, strawberry and blue Hawaiian pop soda. But for something more cooling, the sweet and refreshing cendol shake is a must-order.
