Pasar Malams In Singapore To Visit In Nov & Dec 2022 For Cheap Street Food & Carnival Games

Pasar malams in Singapore

Growing up in Singapore, most of us have fond memories of pasar malams – whether it’s queuing up for a Ramly Burger, spending coins at claw machines, or the cheap thrill of buying colourful electronics.

While there may be many new atas restaurants and chic cafes, nothing hits the spot like some good oldfashioned street food. For the satisfaction of your stomach and your wallet, we’ve put together a list of pasar malams in Singapore to visit this November and December.
