Fancy having some local hawker fare for lunch, but unwilling to face the crowd or out of tissues to ‘chope’ a seat? Well, you’re in luck, provided you work or live in the Central Business District (CBD). Concierge and delivery service honestbee unveiled on Tuesday (14 November) an on-demand lunchtime hawker food delivery from places such as Maxwell Food Centre, Amoy Street Food Centre and Hong Lim Food Centre.
Singapore has a unique and authentic hawker culture, which Pezzo Group aims to preserve with their latest concept, Hawker Heroes. Hawker Heroes ‘provides young and passionate next-gen hawkers a bigger and national stage to showcase their time-honoured dishes, and at the same time continue the legacy of their family recipes’, said Pezzo in a press release on Thursday (21 September). Located in Northpoint Shopping Centre in Yishun, the very first Hawker Heroes outlet will be helmed by graduates who have decided to embrace the entrepreneurial spirit and continue their family businesses – Hong Seng Curry Rice and Ru Ji Kitchen.
Foodies living in the far east of Singapore are in luck as Pasir Ris is set to have its first hawker centre in November, featuring hawker foods on the ground floor and "hipster" foods on the upper level.
