25 awesome halal food stalls at National Museum of Singapore’s 130th Anniversary weekend (13-15 Oct)
Halalfoodhunt.com will be joining in the National Museum of Singapore's celebrations this 13 to 15 October, Friday to Sunday with its first ever curated pop-up cafe at Plus65 Concept Market, a curated market by Satire Singapore, Halalfoodhunt.com and The Retro Factory for National Museum of Singapore's 130th Anniversary!
WHAT TO EXPECT
Pop-up Cafe by Halalfoodhunt
Right next to the car boot sale on level 2 is where event goers can take a break from the shopping to chill out. A pop up cafe-esque corner, curated by Halalfoodhunt.com, boasting delish nosh and comfy furnishing will be a great place to wind down and re-charge, before exploring other exciting programmes that the museum has to offer.
Here's the amazing list of Halalfoodhunt.com listed merchants who will be joining us as vendors:
Butterboo:eh is a homemade brew made of all that is magical in the world, designed to tickle your tastebuds and quench your thirst. This delicious brew is made of two parts – soothing liquid gold and dreamy butterscotch foam. While the original drink (made popular by the Harry Potter franchise) was meant to help elves to let loose after a day’s work, the BOO:EH version promises to rejuvenate you the way an adventurous holiday or a great book would. Take a sip and reminisce good times with loved ones.
If you're going to spend the whole day at the National Museum you'll need to fill your tummies with some Soulfood! On Saturday they'll be serving Chilli Clams Pasta with crabsticks, Mussels in Garlic butter Sauce and corn and potato, with a different menu every day!
3. Ratu Lemper
There's only one of her in Singapore…. she's the Queen of all Lempers. The pulut (glutinous rice) is cooked with santan (coconut cream) and in between the layers, they use 100% chicken floss which has been prepared and seasoned with a whole range of spices and seasonings. And instead of being panggang-ed (grilled), it appears to be steamed instead.
Limaa will be selling healthy grub like beef & chicken sandwiches, nachos, and fruit juices. They also recently appeared in Berita Mediacorp for their healthy choices.
5. Measuring Happiness
Love malay kueh? Measuring Happiness has it all in both traditional and modern forms! They will be selling kuih keria gula melaka, ondeh-ondeh, roti boyan, Ondeh-ondeh cake, Ovalmatine chocolate cake, Durian Cups and Nutella Mousse Cups.

How old is the National Museum again?
Yes, it is 130 years old.
On Wednesday 12 October 1887 at 5pm, the 14th Governor of the Straits Settlements, Sir Frederick Weld, ceremoniously opened the Raffles Library and Museum at Stamford Road. The oldest of its kind in Singapore, the museum was then established to spur intellectual inquiry in the region. It grew alongside the country, survived the Japanese Occupation and has transformed into a socio-history and cultural institution that is well-loved by many. Today, the National Museum of Singapore continues to excite and inspire visitors with its innovative ways of presenting history and the national collection.
This October, celebrate the 130th birthday of one of Singapore’s beloved and iconic cultural institutions! Come discover the National Museum’s fascinating history, the building, its galleries and people behind it though art installations and guided tours led by our curators and docents. Enjoy live music performances, craft activities for children, giveaways, some retail therapy, food and more as you reacquaint yourself with the National Museum of Singapore.
