Gen Y Speaks: DIY-meals in pricey Sweden made me appreciate Singapore hawkers all the more

There is one thing Singapore really deserves the “World Number 1” is the “Hawker Center Food” (UNESCO-to-be), with the unique features:

  1. Ubiquitous: across all island
  2. Affordable by all
  3. Loved by all : rich or poor, all ages, races, local or foreigners
  4. Long opening hours

You only realize how much you miss the Hawker food when you step out of Singapore longer than 1 week. What I would crave for are these "4 大金刚" common hawker food, because they are difficult to reproduce overseas without the sauces, ingredients & the hawker’s culinary “secrets” :

  1. 炒粿条,
  2. 海南鸡饭,
  3. 肉脞面/鱼丸面,
  4. 福建虾面

Amazing S$5 meals in the World’s most Expensive City // Singapore Eats

Maxwell Road Hawker Center in China Town – The Best in Singapore.

Breakfast: Kopi (S$1), Cantonese Century-egg Pork Congee (S$4) 皮蛋瘦肉粥

Lunch: Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken Rice (S$5) 天天海南鸡饭

Note: “Tian Tian” is not the no. 1 chicken rice in Singapore. The “Boon Tong Kee” (文东记) at Balestier Road (HQ Branch) is the best, which is closest in quality to the authentic (also the inventor) of this dish by the defuntSwee Kee” (瑞记) Restaurant in 1950s – early 1980s.

Dinner : Roasted Pork “Chashao” Noodles (S$5) 义烧面
