Common Ground Korea is a market built entirely out of recycled shipping containers in Seoul.
While Singapore doesn’t have the space for a full-sized container market, we have something that comes pretty close.
From now till 8 July 2018, the Bugis area will be taken over by Market On Wheels! A collaboration between Bugis Junction and Bugis+, this is Singapore’s first and very own food trucks and container market, for a bit.
Market On Wheels, while not massive, does offer a good variety of food and drinks.
Here’s what you can expect at this brand new market!
A Sugar Rush by Cereal Citizen
You might’ve seen them quite recently at Artbox. Cereal Citizen was founded by local blogger and influencer, Bong Qiu Qiu. They’re known for their signature Crododo, which is a quirky little creation of a cross between a croissant and a donut.
Basically, a donut with the texture of a croissant.
Other items on the menu include the Unicorn Cotton Candy that looks almost too good to eat, and the Market On Wheels-exclusive Caramel Popcorn-flavoured Creamy Foam with Fizzy Butterbeer Soda. (What a mouthful.)
Cereal Citizen’s highly instagrammable food might look (almost) too pretty to eat. But if you’re not a big fan of food that’s too saccharine, then you might want to check out the next vendor in the list.
Local Delights at Abracowdabra
Abracowdabra might have a small menu which serves up a few local dishes, but these offerings are not to be scoffed at.
Don’t miss their savoury items such as the Satay, Har Cheong Gai, Tahu Goreng and the Fried Mantou that comes with either chilli crab sauce or condensed milk.
Wash your food down with a large cup of Sugarcane juice or Cendol!
Beef Cubes at Swag Grill Bar
Brought to you by the people from The Swag Social who were also at Artbox recently, the Swag Grill Bar offers grilled Yakiniku Ribeye Beef, Salmon Mentai (OMG), fries, and their signature “HP and Mana” drip bag sodas.
If you’re a fan of grilled beef cubes, then you have to get their Yakiniku Ribeye Beef – flame-grilled to perfection, with a choice of it being served with rice and an onsen egg in a donburi.
If you’re looking for something that’s more filling, this is the place to go.
Here are some of the other vendors that will be at Market On Wheels.
The Market On Wheels is an interesting pop-up concept that’s never been done in Singapore previously. If you’re in the Bugis area from now till 8 July 2018, head over to check it out. You might even be able to catch live performances as you dine!
Bring friends, come hungry.
