Unfortunately, due to the prolonged pandemic, the famous Geylang Bazaar that takes place during the fasting month is canceled again. Most of the vendors have taken their business opportunities online through popular and familiar platforms such as Facebook and Instagram. But, there are also those who took a leap during these uncertain times by setting up physical stores to continue their business. So, here is our roundup on 5 places you can visit for your classic bazaar food!

Classic favourites from Burger Ramly, Takoyaki and Apam Balik can all be found in this humble store located in the West.
