The First Eatbox Singapore By Artbox At Downtown East Happening This Jan — Here’s What To Look Out For!

Last Updated: January 2, 2019

Written by Amanda Ng

I’m sure we’re all familiar with Artbox Singapore, the pop-up container bazaar from Bangkok that happened two weekends in May and June 2018. Well, they’ve got a ‘sibling’ event happening in 2019 and its literally all things food and music.

Eatbox Singapore will be happening on 11 – 13 January and 18 – 20 January 2019, just a short nine-minute walk from Pasir Ris MRT station, at Downtown East. Featuring more than 50 local and regional food vendors, we’re sure that this is definitely one event you cannot miss.

You might be thinking if this anticipated event will be bringing back hot favourites from previous Artbox events. Well, here are some answers to your questions and take it from us: You’re in for a real treat! It’s worth noting that most of the vendors over at Eatbox Singapore 2019 are Halal-certified, so there’s more for everyone to enjoy.

Here are five food items to look out for that will definitely make all your IG followers very hangry.

1. Mentaiko Beef Cubes (Beef Bro)

Introducing our first contender (of the many), Beef Bro is well-known for their torched Mentaiko Beef Cubes (S$14.90). Famed for their stint during the 2018 Geylang Serai Bazaar and other street feats, these guys are no strangers to feeding the masses.

The chunky beef cubes are seared to a perfect medium rare and topped with creamy mentaiko sauce. If that doesn’t entice you, think about how this would be the ultimate atas snack to munch on while strolling through Eatbox’s event space!

Get ready for a fiery show-stopping performance as servings are torched to order. For the Instagrammers, we’re pretty sure you’re going to want to snap some shots or even a video to appease that feed.

While it’s debatable on whether the steep price is worth it for this snack serving, it’s not every day you get to feast on two decadent ingredients served on one plate. Time to get moo-ving and make sure you give this a shot.

2. Truffle Salt/Miso Butter Takoyaki (Saiko)

Now, don’t mistake the name of the next vendor for something whacky. Saiko translates to ‘the best’ in Japanese.

The stall features the popular street snack Takoyaki (Japanese octopus balls), served with Truffle Salt (S$10) or with Miso Butter (S$8) for six balls.

This trendy street bite will give you the opportunity to savour Japan’s traditional delights and leave you in awe of our local talents.

3. Shih Lin Chicken (Krumbz N Kravez)

Krumbz N Kravez has a sinful yet delectable version of Shih Lin Chicken (S$6), and it’s halal! Sprinkled with lethally hot chilli powder, the succulently fried chicken slab is a painfully delicious treat.

Know a fellow fried chicken lover? This crispy fried snack would definitely reel the whole crew in.

4. Thai Iced Tea (Broti)

And of course, we can’t forget the classic Thai Iced Tea (S$4) served up by the folks at Broti. Served in a large cup, it can easily satisfy two thirsty pals and what better way to stroll around the bazaar with a quenching drink in your hand?

Plus, it’s super Instagrammable. Sip on some of Broti’s signature concoction when you’re at Eatbox and make sure you snap one for the IG Stories!

5. Iced Caramel Macchiato (Rumi The Poet’s Cup)

Here’s one to assuage the caffeine addicts: Rumi The Poet’s Cup will be popping up at Eatbox this January to pour up their specialty coffee and creations.

The inspiration drew from Rumi, a famous Persian poet born in the year 1207, who became the best-selling poet in the United States after his works took flight.

Did we mention that every cup comes with a personalised poem? The thoughtful initiative parallels that of their role model’s personality and be it rain or shine, these messages will definitely make your day.

Gear up to enjoy the beauty of the written word over a cup of Iced Caramel Macchiato (S$5) and relish in the sweetness of the poem and coffee. We think it’s a truly blissful pairing.


Food and drinks aside, Eatbox will be hosting a live music tent with local artists jamming out to sick beats. Immerse in the good vibes of live indoor music performances curated by Eatmepoptart where they showcase the sick beats of local bands and DJs alongside with interactive installations and arcade games.

Enjoy a laidback evening being spoilt for choice over what to feast in at this hipster food festival or perhaps busk in refreshing tunes in their live music tent. Ring your friends and family to save the date and take a trip down East for the first Eatbox Singapore. We’re drooling just thinking of it!

Dates & Times: 11 – 13 & 18 – 20 January 2019, 3pm – 11pm.
